Al Saunders for Oakland Raiders OC position?

For nearly 3 decades London born Al Saunders has coached and consulted offenses in the NFL. Known for his unrivaled,  in bulk at least, offensive playbook which is reported to contain 7,000 plays within its 700 pages.

Saunders' name was mentioned at the press conference Tuesday in the context of Offensive Coordinator to fill the vacancy Hugh Jackson left when Hue assumed the Head Coaching position of our beloved Raiders. So, we should discuss Coach Saunders' pros and cons and decide whether or not we think he's the best choice. 

Al Saunders knows Hue Jackson and enjoyed success in Baltimore over the past two years. Prior to that Saunders had some significant success in KC and both good and bad results at St. Louis, but his introduction to the NFL was not so pleasant;  his first 3 years were really tough and it is an indication of his toughness and determination that he came back from those first 3 years of adversity.
