      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."

Good old twa... never shy about the fact that you don’t believe in anything and care about nothing (well, except emails... but only when it’s Hillary)

 

Headline: GOP Guy just prohibited Figmentistan from producing mustard gas. Instead, GOP Guy Inc will be mass producing chemical weapons for them and turning a huge profit.

 

twa: What about Obama Germany?

 

 

HEADLINE: This benefits nobody but GOP Guy. He is the only one profiting. A lot of people are going to die... with pain.

 

twa: Hey everybody, it’s hedgehog with a taco time!!

 

 

GOP Guy: All the headlines are true. Figmentistan just asked me to work up a special formula for making children’s deaths as slow and painful as possible. Ka-Ching!

 

twa: 🦔+🌮

OT :ph34r:

 

I posted this once before....many years ago I drove by a  mini strip mall in a large shopping zone in the seattle area....the four stores, in order, included a gun shop with a big neon "ammo" sign standing out, a wig shop, subway sandwiches, and a sexual aids shop with a large neon "adult materials" sign....of course i appreciated the perfect beauty of modern americana as realized in that little retail strip, but it also left me with an inspiration for a possible return to the private business owner sector someday with the perfect store..."Jumbo's Porn & Ammo"....two big flanking neon signs for porn and ammo...signage like "All You Really Need in Life"......

So when the inevitable person comes in, Jumbo, and asks for something that will do the most damage, do you refer them to the video of 1 night in China or the 457 Magnum?

Returning to point, this Saudi Arabia thing is mind blowing. Not only is the country getting away Scott free for the brutal execution of an American journalist, but we're rewarding them with nuclear material? What are they thinking?

They are thinking about all that oil $$ and how much trump can make off the deal.

Question:

is everyone that worked in the trump admin/campaign forever tainted goods?

 

if a company or future politician hired someone that was... let’s say... a speech writer for trump, is there automatic ties to whatever it is we all think about trump? (Russia, white supremists,  etc)

Obviously it depends on the circumstances of the hiring, the position, and their past.  There were a lot of folks fired or who resigned because they disagreed with Trump, and others who had no involvement in his plans or policy or parroting his propaganda.  A lot of people who worked for his admin predated his presidency.  Also it's more of a problem if Trump is in power and could use the connection to his advantage or to control CNN and put out his propaganda through them.
