      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."

If the name changers do finally get their ludicrous wish, then I will start politicking to get the following names changed: 👿

They'll be back when we start winning again.

Mmmm...I dunno, the media won't drive this bus again like they did last time because they were made to look pretty stupid when the new independent study came out and the results were more in favor of the name than the previous study. Which ESPN talking head was it that basically surrendered the issue on air? Was it Stephen A?

Most of the people upset with the name and demanding it changed now aren't even football fans or native americans, started to notice that trend the last time this got smacked down.  In this day in age of people competing to be the most Woke, its only a matter of time until it pops up again, even if it goes nowhere.

Maybe, like to hear how our owner is a racist and the last three QBs we drafted in the first round were all black. We don't even need comebacks anymore, just can tune it out.  Ever since DC mayor realized Virginia might steal the new stadium from them, she changed her tune, for some this really goes so far as to what it costs them to stick with their stance.  Some don't want to lose money, some don't want it to cost their reputation, some have nothing to lose.

Well, I'm one of the ones who find the whole name change thing absurd...and hypocritical when you look at some of the biggest protesters.

I wonder how many of the protesters and the ones screaming cultural appropriations are tripping over themselves making excuses for Elizabeth Warren?

I love seeing the sjw’s that jumped on this exposed for being full of ****. Completely full of ****. 

 

Its great. I’ll forever enjoy doing this victory lap. Lots of people were quite sure of themselves when they started telling everyone else how people think and feel  

 

that’s the beauty of the SJW people - they just move along like nothing happened. Doesn’t really phase them, because being right about these things was never a concern of theirs to begin with.

That ven diagram has a large amount of commonality.

What is an sjw?

SJW = Social Justice Warrior

Think of your stereotypical first year Berkeley liberal arts student who is woke to the injustices in the world, so instead of actually prioritizing and working on key issues that matter they take on everything and criticize/protest everything that moves, except they are so blinded by their criticism of everything else they neglect to realize that their Prius actually has a larger carbon footprint than the Dodge Ram they're angry at.

Or as they were documented in the movie PCU, they are the Causeheads

Nor for you, apparently.  

 

I mean, coming to the right conclusion is nice and all.  But the real payoff is being entitled to act like a jerk towards some well intentioned people who thought they were standing up for a Little Guy.

Did they feel that way--or were they hopping on an emotional bandwagon, with only their own ego and self-worth in mind?

Because many of them ignored all facts and evidence that ran contrary to their agenda, or dismissed it outright with nothing more than a wave of the hand

I don’t even care any more, like one way or another.  I certainly don’t care enough to want to rub it in the face of whoever was a supporter of the name change.

 

Plus, there’s a 100% chance that Donald Trump uses the term “redskin” when referring to American Indians.

Yup. If you’re going to be loudly wrong about something then you get to eat it. 

 

They arent sticking up for the little guy. They’re just acting on their need to feel righteous over others. They’re obnoxious and I doubt most of them will or have accepted this. They can go kick rocks.

Yeah, I don't think they ever really gave a Frenchman's **** about "the little guy."  Maybe some did, but for the majority of them I believe it was a chance to chest thump and remind people how aware and woke they are.  

 

There are a lot of battles going on in this country today, various members of various groups for different things.  But I am convinced that perhaps the biggest battle is the battle for the moral high ground.  It doesn't have the most at stake,...but I think it's the battle with the most people, the most participants.  Got a twitter handle?  Facebook account? Congrats, you're in.  Low cost of entry and it requires no hardship or effort to remind people that you're morally virtuous and therefore better than some other person or group of people.  Just in case anyone gives a ****, ya know.

Its quite simple.  She claimed to be Native American when she wasn’t.  She tried to prove it, to much embarrassment.  It’s a pretty cut and dry case of cultural appropriation.

 

The irony there, is that people support Warren, and this her appropriation but don’t support the Redskins as well.

Oh ok. So the implication of Warren is wrong and the equivalency presented is also wrong. 

 

Care to elaborate on this? I find it interesting that people who criticise the Redskins name also ignore Warren's blatant "appropriation." Now note, these are also the idiots who say a white person can't cook a burrito...so....

 

And it's not a left/right thing--I find the inherent hypocrisy in emotional arguments like this, and politics in general, fascinating.
