      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."

Green B3 Crew - Can You Please Clarify How To Get To This Lot

Recommended Posts

So first shot at trying Green B3 last night - I came in on Morgan Blvd through the townhouses and saw a sign for green as soon as we saw parking - was directed into a green lot right on the fence line and thought all was good to go.  Later several people commented that I was in Green A5 and not B3 and that I was "lucky" to be there since B3 is soooo much farther away..   Looking at the map it seems like I possibly should have continued in towards the stadium and hooked a left right before the garage parking and followed that road back towards Green B3??

 

Per my searches on this board it seems like they do not open the Sherriff Road entrance before the game but rather use it as an exit after?  If so can anyone recommend any landmarks to look for to be closest to the exit when parking?

 

Finally, if anyone can recommend the best way to get to B3 from Reston I would be much obliged :)

 

Thanks much!

I also have Green B3 for the season, first year season ticket holder... I was planning on just parking in normal green parking. I have had B3 in years past and have never had a problem parking in the normal green lot.

 

From my experience the they seem not to care, were you park. As long has you have a parking pass. I have actaully been told to park in orange when I had green parking.

First let's define what Green B3 is. 

 

The Green B3 lot is the entire Green lot that is opposite of Gate B.  The "3" refers to the tier, in that the green lot is the third tier out from the stadium.  So the truth is, the 3 is redundant and confusing.  It's easier to think of it as "Green B".  If you have a Green B3 parking pass, you must park in the Green B lot.  You may not park in another lot unless flagged into that lot by an attendant. 

 

To find the Green B3 lot, the easiest thing to do is look at the back of your pass.  You should see a map and your lot should be indicated on back.  In addition, it will tell you what access road to use.  Morgan Blvd is the correct road (use beltway exit 15, Central Ave to get to Morgan Blvd.).

 

Once you enter stadium grounds from Morgan Blvd, you will turn left and cross the entire width of the A lot until you enter the B lot.  However, it's possible parking attendants may flag you into another lot, especially if you arrive late, because your lot is filled.

 

To summarize, any lot opposite Gate B which is Green is part of the Green B3 lot, regardless of any other number you might see on any light pole.

 

Hope this helps.

Edit:  You cannot walk straight to the B Gate from the B lot because there is a tall chain link fence, woods, and a creek between you and the stadium.  You must walk South or Southeast towards the A lot, and then walk towards Gate A.  Also, know  that Gate B is used exclusively for AAA Ultimate Fanzone Club wristband fans.  You cannot use Gate B without a wristband pass.

Wow, thanks for the info. I'm also a first year STH and I've been completely confused by the B3 designation. I guess the key is to arrive early and park as far up in green B as possible.

Woah I wasn't even aware that green lot passes designated which area of the green lot you could park in.  I have to go look at mine now..
