"We're not playing together"

I couldn't help but notice the following Charles quote from yesterday's press conference:

"I don’t know why we’re not dominating, but we’re winning games still. We’re not playing together, but when we connect and when we play together you’ll see us. We’re not dominating right now, but we keep getting better and better every week."

(on MB-TF)

I ignored the optimism bit and focused on the fact that even Charles recognizes that they aren't playing together.  This seems to be the key problem.  We have great talent at all (at least most) positions, yet the team isn't gelling.

I'd be interested to hear people's opinions on why this is happening.  

Personality problems?  We've got quite a range of kids here, from felons to future lawyers. . .
No leaders?  No one seems to have stepped up yet.
Overconfidence?  Underconfidence?
Dissatisfaction with the coaching schemes?

Also, can this be fixed?  
Can a team be born from a group of individuals?  You can't teach camaraderie.  You can't force people to be in synch.  
And what about PASSION?  I watched OTHER teams play with it this weekend.
