The problem is that Pioli has avoided the guys that play with emotion.
He believes the best way to win is to find guys that play smart.
But the great defenses always have that one or two guys that play with their emotion on their sleeves, and when you have that, the rest of the team follows.
The Patriots, in their SB years, had those guys, with Willie McGinest and Teddy Breuski.
As soon as those guys started to move on, even though their defense still played smart, that defense declined, because they drafted smart players who don't bring any emotion.
