      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'd say contempt is a given.

But really,, i'd say it's a threat. That's another very serious felony, no?

Between this guy and Manafort I don't know how they ever managed a successful campaign in their lives. The stupid knee jerk moves they have both pulled since being under the law enforcement heat lamp are astounding.

They are affluent white men in the political class. They do not believe the law applies to them.

Before this is all over, we may discover that it doesn't.

Stone, who was arrested last month during a pre-dawn FBI raid of his Florida home, wrote in the email that it "may be the last time you hear from me if I am gagged by the Judge."


Judge Amy Berman Jackson on Friday issued a gag order barring Stone, his attorneys and prosecutors from discussing his case in public. Stone's fundraising email was sent Tuesday evening.

 

In the email, Stone refers to Jackson as an "Obama-appointed Federal Judge" and wrote that the "real reason they want to gag me is so I cannot raise the money necessary to mount a vigorous legal defense."

 

Jackson earlier this week ordered Stone to appear in court Thursday to explain why the gag order she imposed shouldn't be lifted. The appearance will come after Stone shared and deleted a photo of Jackson on his Instagram page over the weekend, showing Jackson with what appeared to be small crosshairs next to her head.

 

Special counsel Robert Mueller's team has brought seven charges against Stone, including obstruction of a congressional inquiry, witness tampering and five counts of making false statements to Congress.

 

Stone wrote in his fundraising email that he has been targeted because of his relationship with Trump. 

 

"We both know I have been targeted by Mueller and the Deep State simply because I am a long-time confidant and friend of the President and I effectively helped defeat Hillary Clinton. The Democrats want me side-lined in 2020 so I cannot help the President," Stone wrote.

 

This seems somewhat ill-advised....

This was never an actual campaign in any sense of the word. The whole thing was a con from the start, with just enough marketing glitter and packaging to give credence to the lie that it was campaigning. That's why no matter what stupid or crazy **** fell out of Trumps spew hole, none of them ever worried, because they knew from the start the fix was in.

True, but the angry white voter was always going to vote Trump as well.

Both good points. Also- Remember when Trump was asked if he would accept the results of the election if he lost and he said "No?" I guess he meant that his fix would have been re-fixed if he lost.

Key words I see there are "summary of Mueller's confidential report". 

 

Meaning "we intend to hide Mueller's report. And release something that was written by somebody else."

I hope everything is kosher with the investigation coming to a close. 

 

It does seem a little coincidental that Barr is sworn in as new AG and barely a week later suddenly the report is ready to go?  

 

Regardless, the report should be made public, in full.

Let's say the report doesn't get released to the public, however the Dems take the WH in 2020.  Can the new President order the Mueller report be released?

Simpler would be for the House to subpoena Mueller and ask him what was in the report and if Barr pressured him to end it.

Yep. I have heard that is actually a legitimate option.
