      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 real life those trades would never happen. The CAP shouldn't allow it to happen. And by the time the draft comes 50% of the users won't be playing. By the next draft 70% of the same players won't be playing, hell the **** might be over. I ain't mad I guess your one hell of a GM or you beat the system.

I just get tired of playing in cheese leagues!

The trade IMO was lopsided....Cowboys got everything and only lost one player....I think there are too many trades but whatever

i mean what im saying is how is it a cheese if i got the other to agree to the trades? its not like i didnt give up ANYTHING... i still gave up players.. i still gave up picks.. if they arent here so be it.. but if they are then the trade is what it is.. the guy wants to rebuild.. i overpayed more than the other people that were in on the trade (it wasnt just me)

The Dockett Deal was a 82 Redding + a 2nd for Dockett 89.. i dont see how thats bad... i got Phil Taylor for a 79 MLB and a 3rd... and i gave the cowboys 3 starters + 3 potential starters for Ware..

I do think trading draft picks should be limited to the draft coming up, not future drafts. Owners rebuilding prob dont realize most leagues only get in 2-3 seasons.

Dro made alot of moves with various teams and individually they were fair trades. Approval was to make sure someone wasnt trading tom brady a 7 th round pick ect. Ravens got ware but gave up alot to make it happen.

Cory Redding 82 rating and a 2nd rd pick for Dockett sounds pretty good to me... there's a trade committee brother..all trades that have been made have been fair.

Yeah, as part of the trade committee, when it comes to judging trades my goal is to make sure there is nothing egregious, not to dictate who could trade for what players (or even stack their teams for that matter). We're all adults, and all agreed to play in this league fairly and hopefully for more than one season, so those who have made a lot of big name trades will suffer the consequences.

I'm saying that I don't necessarily take it as my job to agree or disagree with a trade. Just to make sure people aren't making completely lopsided trades, I don't think any of your trades were unfair or out of line.
