      In today's Divisional Debacle, the Defense under Greg Manusky in the first half, gave up 207 yards of offense (105 rushing/102 passing) and two touchdowns.  That said, they did manage a single INT on which the Offense actually managed to score a touchdown off of. They allowed 12 of 16 passes to be completed . 
       
      In the second half it was 107 yards given up (58 rushing//49 passing) a field goal and a touchdown. They traded their first half pick for a second half sack. However, Dallas completed all five of their pass attempts. 
       
      Don't read that thinking "Well it seems like they tightened up some in the 2nd half."  They didn't. They simply had about half the plays in the second half. 30 plays in the First and 18 in the Second.
       
      So far in two Divisional matchups, the Defense has faltered in the Second half. They start out like a house of fire for the first few drives until their opponents gradually make adjustments. This Defensive coaching staff fails make any adjustments, whether in game or at the very least at Halftime. They've given up over 30 points per game for a total of 63 points given up in two games. While the Bears are up next, the Pats await and they've put up over 70 points in two games. Yeah. Ok. They did shut out the Dolphins today which is looking like the NFL version of ... ahem... shooting fish in a barrel. 
       
      The frustrating thing is Manusky is the DC that the Front Office actively looked to replace during the off season without firing him. When you know they're looking to replace you, most people would make a concentrated effort to show an improvement. Yet Manusky's Defense still keeps acting like it's starring in Groundhog Day.
       
      In his post game presser, when asked directly about if any coaching changes would be made, Gruden said "No, I think after two games – you’re talking about playing two very good offensive football teams and two of the best offensive lines in pro football we just played back-to-back. That’s no excuse whatsoever, but I don’t think we need to hit the panic button yet. We just have to continue to focus on what we can do better to win. Get Jonathan [Allen] in here, get a couple of our corners back in here and let’s go back and strap it up against Chicago [Bears] next week and see what happens.” 
       
      Here's another frustrating thing. The defensive communication was an issue last season as well. Wasn't this supposed to have been worked on during OTA's and Training Camp? It's understandable that the rookies would still be on a learning curve, but NFL vets like Collins and DRC you'd think they would have down by the start of the season. 
       
      Gruden said they're a very talented group on Defense but that they weren't reaching them. When questioned as to why the coaching staff that has been in place for several years, wasn't reaching them, he defended the comment as them being a young defense. “We have some moving parts now. Landon Collins is a veteran guy but this is his first year, [Montez] Sweat’s in his first year, [Cole] Holcomb, it’s his first year, [Jon] Bostic is in his first year. We’re playing Dominique [Rodgers-Cromartie] at corner and this is Jimmy Moreland’s first year, so it’s not like we are the most experienced group. We feel like were very talented, but we`re still fighting through somethings. There are a lot of things to look forward to, without a doubt, but we do have to play better and strap it up and get back to work."

You could be taking advantage of potentially hilarious situations Taze. If someone was to walk up to you wanting you to sign something about stopping "Abusive poppy mills" just say "I hate dogs" and keep walking. or if someone tries to talk to you about breast cancer say that "I'm more of an ass person" and walk away.

I would never do that, cancer is a mother****er and I've watched first hand how it sucks the life out of someone suffering.  It's not a pretty sight, its terrifying.  It cripples even the most powerful figures in society.  

 

Watching my only uncle wither away was the worst experience I've had to go through.

 

And I didn't take your comments the wrong way, but I would never do something like that, even if I never lost someone to the disease.  I've got too much sympathy for the people suffering and the people trying to do something for a good cause.

 

I just don't like it when people try to guilt me into something and say horrible things like that lady did or act like they don't believe me.  I understand, they get turned down more than they probably raise so it gets old after a while, but don't act like an ass about it.

What are you looking for Moco? Do you just want casual shallow sex or do you want a relationship? 

 

The former, just make a profile on Tinder. Almost all the singles where I live who don't want a relationship use it to some degree.

 

It sounds like you are sexually frustrated and you don't understand why. You think highly of yourself which isn't a bad thing. I knew a guy just like you who was very self-confident (almost to the point of being a pompous ass) but couldn't get laid or get beyond 1st or 2nd base with any girl (of course that didn't stop him from talking up himself like Jesus Christ reincarnate). '

 

You need to get rid of your sexual frustration before you think about being in any kind of relationship.

You guys make me feel like I'm going to be some serial rapist or something.

Broski, just take advantage of the advice we are giving you.  You can still be the same person inside regardless of how you dress/act/talk/etc.  You might need to work on how you act (based on what I've read on here) and conduct yourself.  Everyone has flaws, nobody is perfect.  It takes more guts to acknowledge your flaws/actions and work on fixing or correcting them.  

 

I'll be the first to admit, I was a childish, immature asshole when the wife and I got married.  We got married young (I was 22, she was 21), but I was selfish, childish and an ass from 1998-2001.  Our marriage got rocky.  I was miserable at work (I've posted about that depression on here before) and because I was immature acting, it created problems. 

 

I took a deep breath and started thinking about things and I asked myself, "Taze, this is the love of your life.  Do you want push her away?  Do you want to have to start over?"  The answer was no.  I changed the way I acted, thinking before I reacted.  I took back control of my life and we couldn't be happier.  

 

I'm still the same man, with the same basic beliefs I've always had.  I'm not the self-centered prick that make poor/selfish decisions without a care in the world anymore.  I know the scenario for me is different than your situation, but the constant is change was needed.  And if what worked for you before is no longer working man, then it might be time to self evaluate and try to make a few changes to things.  

 

There has been a lot of good advice thrown your way man, just in the past day.  Don't think of change or tweaking a few things as destroying who you are.  Instead think of it as doing what is necessary to mold the man you will become.

not airborne isn't entirely accurate . . . the ebola pig study said that pigs could "aerosolize" it in their spit and mucus. Theoretically, so could a human.

i did. It was hurting too bad, I couldn't make it to class. 

Hell, when I was in college, all I needed to skip class was for it to be raining outside.  Hope the ankle gets better soon Doc.
