      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."

Trump and his cabinet/buffoonery- Get your bunkers ready!

Recommended Posts

Yeah, why would he want to go talk to the leaders of the countries that dominate the world's economies, right now?   

 

Maybe he could duck out to Germany for a MAGA rally.

Never in my life, have we had a president that attacked the foundations of our great democracy with such veracity.  Every day, there is some sort of accepted norm that is being put up for debate by Trump.

 

Its embarrassing.

Why do we want to discriminate against gay people? 

 

Anyone one of you Conservatives feel free to answer. Im not trying to fight you over it, just curious the reason why we would want to discriminate against Americans.

Religious organizations and such are the usual, though some businesses also find transgenders a problem with their business model.

 

Does Hooters welcome trans waitresses?

 

I'm a equal opportunity employer myself, I'll work ya like a dog no matter your proclivities. :pint:

Its hard for me to wrap my head around where to place that monologue, because he mastered the art of appeasing his clinically insane level of narcissism while insulting him at the same time while being dead ass serious if he went all in for climate change hed vote for him, putting in context how dire this situation really is.  It wasnt jus a funny bit when you really think about it, that was directly to the President of the United States, that's who that crazy ass monologue was targeted to, that's what we actually dealing with.  Hilarious, but sobering, he was trying to be funny, but he was serious, this is serious

C'mon.  They didn't object when he did the same thing to the FBI.  

 

(In fact, they actively hunkered down and began working on building the false narrative.)

You know how bad it is? I was at the gym this morning and caught them discussing the directive for American companies to stop dealing with China.  Instead of condemning it they tries to cite laws that would allow him to do it, if he decided to do it. 

 

Sometimes Fox will jus throw their hands up and call him out, but otherwise they will try to rationalize what hes doing instead of asking if its rational to begin with.  The propaganda spin is real, and they will keep driving head on over the cliff until they are mid air and finally call him out because they arent flying.  The gravity of a full on '07 level global recession is probably only thing that can stop this now.

Oh man I can't wait to see his Tweets about that Bill Maher bit.

 

Which he didn't watch.  And nobody else did, either.  Because the ratings suck.  That's why he knws nothing about it at all.

This has been tried before during WW2, when nazi Germany imprisoned gay people in the concentration camps, and affixed an upside down pink triangle on the clothes they wore, we should have learned from the past, not tried to repeat it again

He will "accidentally" watch it.

 

For an hour.

 

Then say "oh I thought that was Ballers, Bill Maher sure looks like the Rock!"

Somewhere, Ron Paul and his son are watching Trump attack the Fed and are saying to each other "Well, this isn't exactly how we planned it, but beggars can't be choosers."

Problem is, Trump is attacking the Fed because it isn't being what the Pauls claim it's been all along.

Yes, which naturally should expose the inherent problem with their "end the fed" rhetoric, but you know what they say, "Politics makes strange bedfellows."
