John Marshall Can Call a Good Game But Has Been Hand Cuffed

Just when im starting to get excited again for this team a quote by Namdi in the locker room brought my hopes crashing down. Here is what was said - In the locker room after the game, cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha relayed that coordinator John Marshall said he’d “probably get yelled at” for all the extra pressure, a clear inference to Al Davis and his fondness for natural four-man pressure backed by man-to-man defense. So Marshall has not been the one to blame for the 4 man fronts and man to man coverage that has been causing the Raiders to get blown out the last 3 weeks. We can hope that Al has seen the light after this game and takes off the handcuffs of Marshall becasue the man has the skills to call a good game and the Raider players have the talent to pull it off. Outside of Namdi and Huff the Raiders are thin of talent in the secondary. What helps a secondary more then anything? Pressure on the QB thats what. With the Jets coming to town with  a sturggling rookie QB i hope that Marshall with blessing from Al or not calls all thie blitz's he likes. If i see a 4 man front for the whole game like we have seen in the previous weeks before the Eagles game i will lose my frigging mind.
