      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."

Moose & Squirrel v Boris & Natasha: what's the deal with the rooskies and trumpland?

Here is the dirty little secret, as flawed as NBC/CBS/ABC are as new organizations, they are way more reliable than Fox, Breitbard, FreedomEagleMurrica, Youtube etc etc.....

 

Sorry, they just are. You know how I know someone is a low information voter and uninformed? When I hear/see the following:

 

"I don't trust the MSM.......immediately posts a gateway pundit article as proof of how bias the media is" 

 

Every organization makes mistakes and have to do their best to sort those out and do their due diligence to fix the mistakes, but this idea that the big news networks are a "left version" of a Fox News is ridiculous, but that narrative has been planted and repeated over and over for so many years now that when people tune into Fox they think they are getting a "different perspective" when what they are really getting is nonsense.

For me, the server thing is a non issue.. I’m pretty sure it was stated that the previous administration had done similar things.  

 

Other administrations did, which is why she should have known better. I believe it was a large part of what cost her the election (it shouldn't have).

throwing out the whataboutisms hard today. So hard.

This is off topic for this thread, but get used to it. If you shout "lock her up!" (Trump, not you) then you better live clean:

It was interesting to see Preet trying to lower expectations of Mueller's report implicating Trump.

So is private email server usage by an administration a no-go, no big deal, violation of the law or what?  Who exactly is or isn't supposed to be locked up for doing this?

Sea lion

 

I was confused about that, are you supposed to be sorry for the sea lion or people? Replace sea lion with the minority of your choice and it’s not funny...

It has been suggested that the couple in this comic, and the woman in particular, are bigots for making a pejorative statement about a species of animal, and then refusing to justify their statements. It has been further suggested that they be read as overly privileged, because they are dressed fancily, have a house, a motor-car, etc. This is, I suppose, a valid read of the comic, if taken as written.

 

But often, in satire such as this, elements are employed to stand in for other, different objects or concepts. Using animals for this purpose has the effect of allowing the point (which usually is about behavior) to stand unencumbered by the connotations that might be suggested if a person is portrayed in that role — because all people are members of some social group or other, even if said group identity is not germane to the point being made.

 

Such is the case with this comic. The sea lion character is not meant to represent actual sea lions, or any actual animal. It is meant as a metaphorical stand-in for human beings that display certain behaviors. Since behaviors are the result of choice, I would assert that the woman’s objection to sea lions — which, if the metaphor is understood, is read as actually an objection to human beings who exhibit certain behaviors — is not analogous to a prejudice based on race, species, or other immutable characteristics.

 

My apologies if the use of a metaphorical sea lion in this strip, rather than a human being making conscious choices about their own behavior, was in any way confusing.

As for their attire: everyone in Wondermark dresses like that.

I understand they have the legal right to do it. I don’t think it’s justified though, or particularly usefully, when it has already been investigated by mueller.

 

 

 

 

The fact that people deny watching Fox News tells you all you need to know about the quality of their programming, but no for real....

You don't understand. Mueller is investigating  just the Russian collusion angle. If he found anything outside his mandate, he sent to the appropriate district; like the SDNY. They are investigating any criminality by Trump, on a whole host if things.

 

Congress is investigating to see how this affecting decisions in the Trump administration and see if he's personally profiting. Is there some overlap sure, but Congress is doing their jobs. Not necessary,  bull. I've already said why. If this was Hillary, you would be gung ho.

Trump is like a dude standing outside of a bank robbery wearing a skimask and holding a bag with a dollar sign on it, ****ing about why the police are looking at him suspiciously.

Nope. Money got moved in and back out of her account in about half a second. I've watched docs on this stuff. 

That's half of what Mueller has to wade through...the money train. The **** was flying around everywhere. He's gotta connect the dots on where it all landed.

I want every reporter who ever wrote a "BUT HER EMAILS" story marched into a small room and forced to write articles ONLY about the Trump admin's misuse of technology for at least the next two years.

 

That is their punishment.

another trump scandal

 

 

 

"Scandal" is an awfully nice word for serious crimes.

Constant serious crimes.

every day, new allegations of serious crimes.

Every day, more lies, more misdirection, and new evidence of massive criminal activity, and potential treason.

Every single ****ing day.

 

defending this?

the proper response from ANYONE with any self respect at ALL... when there is THIS MUCH on a daily basis ... even if you WANT it to NOT BE TRUE.. is to sit back and recognize just how much of there is, the gravity of what it all represents, and to begin to demand truth. There is no defense. Especially when you know the people in the media who defend him and provide you with these "questions' and 'excuses' have a vested stake in keeping you gullible and with toes on the line.

 

Every. ****ing. Day.

Wise up.

Well, in defense of the GOP, their opinion of their base pretty much matches ours.

Bootlicks.

 

That is all they are. 

 

The GOP is the opposite of everything they tell the bootlicks they are.

And they can't stop pretending to believe it, despite everything being right in front of their faces, often flagrantly presented.

 

Every ****ing day.
