Uhh.. when you have brandon marshall against any corner, you are going to him. when you have brandon marshall against a rookie corner, you are going to him. when you have brandon marshall against a rookie corner TOLD to play SOFT ZONE [7-9 yards off], you would be an absolute idiot not to go to him.
They saw this retarded defense we were playing and thats why marshall ran 3 consecutive 1 step slants.
Basically anyone should have been able to see this. Fool me once, fool me twice, fool me....I think it all was a mixture of lack of talent and bad coaching - but a coach has to change a gameplan in order to suit the talent he currently has, and how that talent is holding up.
