      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."

Texas House Speaker Dennis Bonnen declared controversial legislation allowing Texans to carry firearms without a license “dead” on Friday after a gun rights activist showed up at his house to try and force the legislation through, the Dallas Morning News reports. Chris McNutt, the executive director of Texas Gun Rights, reportedly complained on Facebook about the lack of action on the “constitutional carry” bill before driving to Bonnen’s home when he was out of town and only his wife and kids were home.

 

McNutt?  :)

Wanna know something that's scarier than that?  I remember reading that the TSA regularly has people try to sneak weapons, or fake weapons, onto airplanes. To test security. 

 

And TSA actually catches like one weapon out of 20. 

 

Well duh, because they are totally focused on catching people whose toiletries are in a container bigger than 3oz.

His life's purpose was given to him. Would have been more fitting if his first name was Colt.

Suspect arrested in road rage killing of a 10-year-old girl in front of her family in Phoenix

 

(CNN)A man was arrested Friday in the fatal shooting of a 10-year-old girl in what appears to be road rage, Phoenix police said.

 

Summer Brown was riding with her family Wednesday evening when their car appeared to cut off a white pickup truck in traffic, said Sgt. Vince Lewis, a spokesman for the Phoenix Police Department.

 

The driver, identified as Joshua Gonzalez, 20, followed them closely for the duration of their trip until they pulled into their driveway, he said.


"The suspect ... opened fire on the vehicle, striking it numerous times," Lewis said. "The victims had just arrived home."


Summer's father, Dharquintium Brown, said the suspect "was ready to start shooting" as soon as they arrived.


" I got out of my vehicle, and asked him, 'What's going on?' " he told CNN affiliate KNXV. "And he just got to firing. He shot my car, and he shot me, and he shot up my house and he killed my daughter."

That sounds interesting. Although more political than gun control.

7-year-old girl in critical condition after apparent accidental shooting in Shively

 

A young girl was shot in the head at a home in Shively on Tuesday afternoon.

 

A MetroSafe official confirmed a juvenile was shot around 3:06 p.m. Tuesday in the 2200 block of Crums Lane.

 

Shively Police Lt. Col. Josh Myers said the girl, believed to be 7, was taken from the Shively apartment to Norton Children's Hospital.

 

She remained in critical but stable condition after undergoing surgery, Myers said Wednesday.

 

Myers said that based off preliminary information, it appears the child was accidentally shot. 

 

Myers said the girl and her 11-year-old brother were in the home alone while their guardian, their uncle, was just outside. A handgun was found by the brother, Myers said, and the girl suffered one gunshot wound while the two children were playing with it.

Why your links always from suspect sounding right wing sites? Not really trying to read a blog from FreedomPatriot.US.
