      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."

I don't think we need to hear anything. I'm sure most people know renewals are way down since nobody even knows if there will be any games played this year.

Of my two accounts, one is paid, the other is not.

I'm paid up on 5 and hoping I can get one set (sect 118) closer to the 50.

Hope that those of you not renewing are in the lower bowl! :ols::ols::ols:

I guess I am bucking the trend. I renewed my two seats in the LL end zone. Starting to sound like the stadium will be half full for the opening game......

I am not renewing. My concern is paying full price and watching scabs.

There will be no replacement players as this labor dispute was initiated by the owners. They are threatening a lockout which means no football operations at all. If the players were to strike then there could be replacement players. This is a completely different situation. Again, a lockout equals no football of any kind.

I renewed my 3; my Dad did not renew his 2 (his are in the lower level, 8 rows up from the field on the goal line, so you may get lucky!). I have been a season ticket holder since 1979; and I guess many of you would call me a fool to renew with all of the doubts about a 2011 season. But I have hope. Shameless Redskin fan. I started as a fan when we drafted Norm Snead to be our QB of the future. (so now everyone knows that I am mentally deranged!)

I renewed my 4 upper level tickets - I don't want to take any chances and miss the opportunity for an upgrade. I really want my parking pass updated to green from gray and I've been pushing for that for years, just have to wait and see.

I'll be pounding on the door come come August to collect my refund for each scheduled game that doesn't occur. I've seen multiple posts noting that the owner's will not use scabs - I can guarantee if they tried to pull that on me that I would never give another dollar to the Redskins for anything.

I did not reply to the premium ticket solicitation ($120 club seat contract ended three years ago).

I did not reply to the "Good news, your seats are available!" letter my wife got (upper level seats we gave up two years ago were in her name).

I did not reply to the Soccer Mom acquaintance that offered up her two lower level seats for the season at cost (since Johnny will be playing lots of travel team soccer this year).

I did install an 120" HD projector home theater in the basement, for right around $2k.

I may buy an orange pass and tailgate one of the lesser games this year, just for old time's sake. If I do, I will wear my knock-off Riggo throwback jersey, because it never goes out of style. :)

Oh, I can't believe that I forgot to post this one - not sure if anyone else received a similar call.

In either late December or early January, I received a call from the ticket office asking if I would be willing to upgrade my 4 upper level seats to club level seats with the promise that they would re-locate my seats to the lower level after 3 seasons. As much as I would love to move to the lower level, I responded "no" without any hesitation. When asked why, my answer was simple "it is ridiculous that you're effectively selling me the right to buy lower level season tickets for $30,000." Note, I assumed $2,500 per seat, per season.

I actually did this in 2007. Enjoyed my 3 years in the club. Moved to lower bowl.

Completely frustrated with the ticket office for a variety of reasons. Did not renew.

Oh, I'm sure that I would enjoy 3 years in the club level. I'd love to sit there every game, but it just is not in the cards for me financially - I'm not even sure how I'd sell that one to the wife and I don't imagine the conversation going over well. I usually get into the club level for about 2 games per year with my father's company seats....that's good enough for me.

What has the ticket office done to frustrate you so much that you chose not to renew after upgrading to clubs to move into the lower level?

Got called today about upgrading to Club Level, they would give me a 25% discount and then put me in the LL in three years. Yeah, didn't buy that, not stupid, but my question is, I thought you had to have 5 year contracts for the club level, how would that work if I did do it? Let alone they said I had two tickets, not four, so I'm gonna have to call them tomorrow to make sure their isn't a mistake and probably have to hear them try to talk me into club for a couple minutes.
