      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."

And for some reason you've decided that advocating for Russia is in our best interests. Why? I'm not certain.

 

 

unless you think shaming Russia will get them to change their behavior, or if you are looking forward to spending a lot of money on deferent weaponry and global defense, I’m not sure of the point in striking an adversarial tone with Russia is. 

 

We we should be 

 

1) Working to delegitimize Putin’s strength via similar means the Russians deployed.

 

2) Worring about what we control, via regulation of social media, confrontation of real fake news, and the de-infotainment structure of mainstream media.

Want to change mainstream media? Get it out of the hands of the corporations that bought them in the '90s.

There needs to be a fundamental

change of how people’s personal information is used over the internet and the current administration is woefully ignorant of the issue.  Republicans are by and large unwilling to make any changes.  Only a few democrats really grasp the issue.

 

Its important, yet we are choosing to focus things like the wall as a means to protect our country.

Admiring or justifying Russia’s actions has nothing to do with spineless politicians enabling them. 

I assume you're talking about Trump.

LoL

You present this as if shaming or all out war are the only two options.

BTW, the fake news is coming from the Right. Think Info Wars, so if you're going to regulate soc media buckle up.

 

Russia has made themselves the world's adversary...think Ukraine duh!!! ****ing Hitler did the same **** and you and Chamberlain are looking for peace through appeasement. Damn surrender monkeys who look to abandon US influence around the world and Russia is ALREADY stepping in.

If you want to be friends with one who has chosen to be your enemy, then you're a fool.

All out war? :D That’s not what I said at all. What options are there beside shaming them and/or ratcheting up Cold War tension?

Yeah. Let’s make our policy decisions based on quotes from The Godfather. I guess it’s better than Sicario 2: Electric Bugaloo.

And to think you voted against her and she seems like such good pals with the people who worked so hard to get you to vote for Trump.

Now don't you feel silly?

Oh, that's right, you didn't vote for Trump...you just voted straight ticket.

You don’t know how much I appreciated this. 

 

Also, while it’s not advised, there is a 100% chance that if Trump made policies based off The Godfather, we’d be better off than the last two years

Not inside the damned Oval Office, not on your knees before them in Helsinki, not bent over in Syria. You cannot be this naive.

I feel like I'm arguing with my kids who know they ****ed up but just keep on arguing because they staked their ground and by god they don't care if it's shifting sand they gonna defend that ****.

There could be some decent quotes from The Godfather for Trump to legit use.

Trump with an orange peel in his mouth, chasing Barron through the tomato garden is an optimum outcome.
