It doesn't need to. We know that Toriyama's story meetings are bi-monthly, we know the outline went through multiple drafts before it was finalized. This isn't rocket science, it's a matter of basic inference.
Super’s outlines are relatively simple so I doubt it takes them a lot to finish them, but I may be wrong.
You're entirely wrong. Akio Iyoku specifically pointed out
that finalizing the story for the Broly
film was relatively quick and done in the first place to make the process easier
for Toriyama compared to the longer stories of the TV series.
However long it took him to finish his script for the Broly arc was almost certainly that
much longer and more comprehensive for the Universe Survival arc's outline. If you think that this had no effect on the pacing, I seriously don't know what to tell you other than that I don't think you actually understand how continuous story adaptations work.

Your construal of my post is what's incoherent. I didn't say "the same" writers would/should follow Toyotaro's manga, I said that following a unified script is better for cohesion than giving bad writers too much freedom, which is true.
We don't know which scriptwriters Toei intends to use for Super
2.0, assuming the rumors are true at all.
If the writers are as terrible as you say they would do even a worst job at adapting the manga.
But see, I really don't think I should have to repeatedly explain why it's better for a group of writers to work with proper
supervision from a pre-written narrative than go wild and create a bunch of disjointed scripts on their own. That should already be a given for anyone who understands the basics of story-crafting in an adaptational format.
Whether they "drag out" the story they're adapting depends on where they distribute their filler. Naruto/Shippuden
is a fairly good example; the pacing for most of its canon arcs ranged from acceptable to decent, largely because the filler was placed between those arcs as anime-only stories. The filler itself might have been terribly written, but that's solely a matter of poor execution. Almost none of it was particularly inconsistent with the main story, and in fact, a ton of Shippuden
's fillers were used to expand concepts and ideas that Kishimoto only briefly touched on in the original work.
There's a wide range of possibilities here that you're clearly not accounting for.
