      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."

The Trade Block Thread

Recommended Posts

I know player movement is forbidden until LM is up (found that out the hard way), but i figured it would be a good idea to have a trade listing players up for trade from each team? Just post your available players. Deals can always be done and not made official until LM.

1) Vince Young

2) Ronnie Brown

However, pretty much my only locked down player is Vick. The rest i might not be planning on getting rid of, but make an offer.

send me some trade offers on console. I won't accept them, because we're supposed to be waiting for LM, but that way at least ill have an idea of what you're offering. I'll take a look at the cards too.

BTW, i thought the eagles were the dream team....I havent paid close attention to their roster till now. This is a freakin mess.

When was the update?? If it was today we wont get it because the league started yesterday. Online franchises will get patch updates but not roster updates.

I've done some checking through all the updates and these are the rosters from the first. Like Chris Johnson got lowered from a 96 to 94 through to updates and he's still a 96 on my team. The roster update that came out friday had Donnie Avery coming to me and he's a FA in the league.I looked at other teams too like Kerrigan started the year with a 74 but has got a boost in almost every update and now he's an 82. Even if for some reason we dodn't get the 6th update that came out friday it should still download all updates through the 5th and we haven't gotten any with the exception of the 1st that fixed everything from the lockout.

I checked your roster and its not right Ladarius Webb should be an 81 and he's only a 75 on your roster. There are others that are wrong on your roster but thats just one example

I'm interested in Cedric Griffin. I'm also interested in doing a deal for Harvin if you're open to something like that.

Also was looking at Greenway but i doubt your interested in letting him go.

Let me know.

Im also adding Cullen Jenkins and the Eagles fight song to the block.

Im interested in Zbikowski and Jimmy Smith. But I'm going to kick that idea around to see if i can get some LB's from another team. That's what i'm really needing.

Green Bay has a boatload of WR's. I would entertain offers for most of them. Don't realy have a slot threat like Harvin, but we should talk.....

You jerk.

Have you checked the league manager forum yet? Some news in there about your squad bro :)

---------- Post added October-12th-2011 at 06:06 PM ----------

I cant write in the League manager forum from my cell for some reason. Would someone mind linking this thread over on the trade board?

*Please post all new players you are interested in trading/looking for onthe league manager trade discussion board.Don't mind if trade talks spills over to here but I want a quick location owners can check rather than digging in this thread. Thanks
