The question isn't why a smaller staff might mean poorer writing; it's why there was a smaller staff.  Is it (A) because FOX (who actually employs the writers) wasn't willing to pay for a full staff, or (B) because FOX WAS willing to pay but as you originally suggested, Matt & David thought they could improve the quality by NOT hiring more?

I'm thinking that Matt & David stuck with those writers who could do the job the way they wanted to see it done, and that meant less writers than the series.
If it was (B), then those here who think the job was NOT done well must think Matt & David's slightly crazy-sounding strategy failed badly.  My point is, why blame Matt, David and the writers when the more natural explanation is (A) FOX's cheapness?

Not blaming anyone, just trying to come up with some sort of reasonable explanation, given your original premise.
