A personnel-driven team needs only to understand their roles, in the position the schemes that is called for. In this case, teach them up and get out of the way, let them do it, all the way down to a fault.
The only way the personnel will know what went wrong, what need be corrected and how it should be done. They either perform or hit the bench, it's that simple and it's no one elses fault. Each individuals are driven by their own physical and mental strengths at their top performances. All that the coaches asked for, is to be very intelligence to the gameplan.
The only fault in these personnel-driven team, is there isn't enough personnel on a given NFL team to warrant success at personnel depth. But schemes can also be change by shifting personnel, at a glance. Personnel-driven is about how they work together as a whole unit, as oppose to coach-driven team camaraderie, where the schemes are driven by the coaches, instead of the personnel.
The advantages is getting personnel to operate exclusively with the unit, as far as schemes are concerned. This helps the coaches fine-tune the schematics and mechanisms of the gameplan. A lot of that goes into the run games, that will allow to open into the passing game. There are no permanent set of schemes, it becomes variable occurring to defensive setup.
The OL must play smart, physical and quick. The WR's must run routes, whether they know it's a passing game or not, always be on the lookout to become a physical blocker. The RB's must also be ready to be physical blockers as well. The result is this unit working in unison to keep manipulating defenses. And the QB, must decide before the ball is snapped, whether it's a run or passing game. He, at least has up to 2 seconds to get the ball into motion. There isn't much of a scheme, except it's a personnel-driven unit, they see it as it is fit. Hence, the no-huddle formation, majority of the time it outgains the defenses because of the run/pass ability.
Therein lies the question, what kind of QB will it take to run a personnel-driven team. Not much, but has a high football IQ and a steady, accurate strong arm. He won't be ask to run, he'll run on instinct. He won't be passing a ton, but he'll gun it down the field. He will be protected, giving the ball to his runners. He needs to be a quick thinker and react on pure impulse, getting sacked will definitely be his fault, well, he had up to 2 seconds to get the ball moving. There are some young QBs out there, with those simple attributes. Doesn't need to be great, but is personnel-driven.

ppl stop putting foles down, we dont NEED a qb, just yet. how many rookie qbs have u seen come in as a back up, and take over and actually get into the record books? foles will be ok, he kept the starting job away from that sorry vick, and actually he won that job fromo vick in preseason..it was just reid and the front office put that dumb contract on vick and had to start him. vick looked awful and got hurt as always. foles is really good. he is no kolb, u fans will want him out, he will go to another team and be a top 8 qb.

We'll find out about who the DC will be, soon enough, as well as the rest of the staffs. Kelly is also a 3-4 coach, with 4-3 integration. He'll need the sort of personnel to play smart in the back 8, that means every receivers on the loose must be covered and the running game taken care of. Kelly needs to get his defense set to the speed of his offense, so that they'll always be ready before the ball is snapped. I'm sure HR will also explain the need to rotate the defensive line, keeping players fresh alternatively. So, shifting between the 3-4 and 4-3 schemes will be critical in learning and practicing against no-huddle formations, as well as rotation on the DL.
We also need to step up on ST, I'm sure Kelly will give a few insiders tips to the coach, which could earn the team in Turnovers, Takeaways and good field advantages, scoring as well. Bobby April was supposed to be one of the best ST coach, the personnel could not capitalize on the field. Maybe, Andy didn't give April the best choice of personnel in that dept., considering April being a highly respectable coach as a STmer. A lot of things needs to stop, a lot needs to change and the right combination needs to follow through. As much as offense and defense are important, ST plays a pivotal role between losing and winning the game. There should be a good setup plan to get this unit up and running, again. They need to find a long snapper for Dorenbo to train, so when Dorenbo can't hold the line anymore, it'll be time for him to hang up his cleats and his successor can carry on from where he left off. I don't think you can find a long snapper as accurate as Jon has been all of his time, here.
