      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."

I see Trump winning reelection easily. 270 should be no problem for him to get.  I also think the GOP will win back the House and keep the Senate in 2020.

2020's the dark era of America.  Expect more Trumpster politicians to win in 2020.

 

😭

 

I think that's a bit much. Im willing to bet most of the people who voted dem in the midterms did it because they felt like he is a horrible president and the Repubs ran a corrupt government. 

 

And i think its just as possible this motivates dems to get to the poles as repubs, cause Muller aint gonna save you.

However, the only things unusual about it, in the Trump administration, are that 

 

1). He admits his ignorance. 

 

2). And claims that he wants to remedy it.

Trying to decide whether to necro the SDNY thread or put it here.  Erring on the side of not bumping since it's only thread adjacent to that one.

The federal prosecutor who helped bring down “Pharma Bro” Martin Shkreli and is leading the Brooklyn U.S. attorney’s case against two former Goldman Sachs Group Inc. bankers and Malaysian financier Jho Low has been tapped as the office’s acting chief of the Criminal Division.

 

Jacquelyn Kasulis succeeds Seth DuCharme, who will join Attorney General William Barr’s staff, the U.S attorney in Brooklyn, Richard Donoghue, said in a statement Monday.


DuCharme is a former deputy U.S. marshal who joined the office in 2008 after attending Fordham University School of Law and clerking for U.S. District Judge Richard Owen in Manhattan. He has served in a series of units in the Brooklyn prosecutor’s office, including General Crimes, Violent Crimes and Terrorism as well as National Security and Cybercrime.

Quote

Mark Lesko, a former supervisor of the Town of Brookhaven in Long Island, New York, has been named Donoghue’s chief assistant, according to a statement. Lesko, who was an assistant U.S. attorney in the office from 2002 to 2009, previously served as chief of the Criminal Division in the U.S. attorney’s Long Island office.

 

Lesko succeeds Bridget Rohde, who served as the acting U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of New York from March 2017 through January 2018, when she was named Donoghue’s chief assistant. Rohde, a prosecutor in the office for 17 years, serving as chief of the Criminal Division and deputy chief of Organized Crime, will become special counsel to the U.S. attorney.

What a ****ing moron. It's astonishing how inept the foreign policy is under Trump. I mean, not astonishing that it's inept, but that the GOP has allowed it to become this bad.

Anyone thinking Nikki Haley is a future president is delusional. She's tainted forever, for being part of the Trump administration.

If she got 77 votes, that means it was at least somewhat bipartisan, right?  Seems like a good thing.

If Democrats weren't ******* afraid of the right-wing smear machine, they would be making the very valid case for American citizen's deserving equal representation in government.

You assume the mainland cares. Most mainland americans have no idea that these people are fellow US citizens. Of course even if they did, they aren't real Americans like people in the heartland, huh?

Dems need to start fundraising for a program to help Puerto Ricans move to Florida and vote.  :)

No cause she didn’t leave in protest, she carried Trump’s message when at the UN and she hasn’t done anything but support him since
