If I failed to explain my thoughts well enough, I apologize.
I thought it was originally clear and the subsequent explanations and clarifications added clarity.
If you still don't get my point or disagree with it - so be it.
I'll take another stab at clarification because I don't think the term Pillar and Foundation is being used properly:
foundation: The basis on which a thing stands, is founded, or is supported.
pillar: A slender, freestanding, vertical support; a column.
The philosophy and shift in priorities within the organization (management, coaches, players) was the foundation upon which everything moving forward will be built upon.
The pillars are supports. The pillars reinforce the structure and are built upon the foundation.
The role players are your windows, doors, cabinets, etc. They are important things in the structure and functioning of the house but can be replaced if need be.
The fringe players are the interior paint. Easily changed at a moments notice.
Again, if you still don't agree, in the words of Derrick Coleman: Whoop De Damn Doo.

Alright let me set this straight. The pillars/foundations whatever the hell you want to call them are:
This years pick
and maybe Ed Davis
the rest we don't know yet. Think what you want but the players i listed will more than likely be here next season.
Okay. So let's break this down, architecture style.
You need pillars so you can reach your goal, otherwise you hit a glass ceiling. You also need a solid foundation, or else the structure won't be solid and you'll hit a wall. So if you have the pillars but no foundation, your attendance will go through the floor and criticism will go through the roof. But if you get the foundation without the pillars, you'll be knocking on the door of the playoffs, but ultimately on the outside looking in through
