      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."

CNN been circling the drain for a minute now to be honest. It’s unfortunate. The fact that they keep bringing on Kellyann’s scary ass tells you much of what you need to know. Matter of fact most of the Republicans they bring on have signed NDAs for Trump now that I think about it. 

 

 

 

CNN has been a joke since the day Agent orange declared

Sessions’ spokeswoman from the DOJ, now working for CNN as a political content editor.

 

 

This is interesting:

According to sources, officials at the DNC were particularly concerned about Isgur’s alleged involvement in Fox News’ false reporting around the right-wing conspiracy theory that DNC staffer Seth Rich leaked DNC emails to WikiLeaks and was murdered in 2016 as a result. 

 

Isgur was mentioned multiple times in private investigator Rod Wheeler’s Sept. 2017 lawsuit against Fox News, in which he alleged the outlet falsely quoted him in a now-retracted article suggesting Rich was personally in contact with WikiLeaks before he was murdered in July 2016. Conspiracy theorists speculated that Rich was the source of the DNC’s leaked emails, despite claims from numerous intelligence agencies that the DNC was hacked by Russians intent on meddling in the 2016 election.

If we win a war.. .  the chances rise considerably that we will not have a war going on.

Hey, at least we've got transparency.  

 

They're being very transparent about exactly what kinds of people this Party is, and appeals to.

Neat.

 

 

 

 

Now there's a guy I'd like to see locked up for a loooong time. (Epstein, I mean. Acosta needs a jailing too though.)

Makes me go "hmmmmm". And contemplate the coincidence of the effort to label Hillary with running a child sex trafficking ring.

Not surprised it was (done legally) in the land of Pence. Mother approved, I guess.

It's a shame we live in a country where this can be legal.

Was the call for Republican's to grab their guns for the Civil War against liberals before or after they caught the loon with the arsenal and the plans to go kill all the liberals?

Trump has tweeted a few times about that actor, yeah? About all the "pain & suffering" for the millions of MAGA supporters.   Has he said anything about the domestic terrorist looking to commit murder, with a list of names and nefarious google queries about where Senators live?
