      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."

Exactly. I really, truly believe some women actually find that kind of behavior appealing. They enjoy being around men that have a history of treating women like garbage. I don't know what makes them feel that way, but they just do.

i remember hearing the doctor off love line saying that one of the wonders of human behavior is that a woman will be attracted later on in life to what caused her fear or anxiety as a child.

why do people find spiders scary? just step on em.

Some girls I know who go to VCU ran into Chris Brown because he goes to the gym over there to workout. I swear the way the post about it on facebook and all the pictures they took, it must have been the greatest moment of their life. All this for a guy they know for being a female abuser, someone who beat the living snot out of his gf. Honestly, I wouldn't even look at a scumbag like him, let alone ask for pictures and I'm not even a female. I thought girls would feel more strongly about this subject.
I've noticed that there are three kinds of women when it comes to this subject.

1.) The even tempered ones that won't go near a fellow like that, but won't go out of their way to confront him

2.) The crazy, neo-feminist kind that WILL go out of their way to approach a guy this.

3.) The kind who are too stupid to care. If he looks cute/does something they like, they're willing to give him an unlimited amount of passes.

Exactly. I really, truly believe some women actually find that kind of behavior appealing. They enjoy being around men that have a history of treating women like garbage. I don't know what makes them feel that way, but they just do.

I think you guys are reading too far into this. I don't think you can say that these girls find Chris Brown's behavior appealing or that they don't think what he did was wrong.

He's famous. It's called being starstruck. ****, if I saw Mel Gibson or Tiger Woods at my gym I'd be trying hard to catch a picture of them, and I for damn sure would be posting on facebook said pics and telling everybody. I don't agree with these guys at all and agree that they are scumbags, but they're celebrities.

I've found most guys don't get as starstruck as girls do. I saw Shane Carwin at Mandalay Bay in Vegas two weeks ago, and I was trying to get pics of him and I got all excited. My boyfriend wasn't as excited as I was.
