      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."

Warren looked good. Be curious to see how Biden does now that his eminence has been privileged to take some time out of his day to actually meet with other candidates

What I want from Biden is a sense that he wants it. I get no passion from him. Just that he's running out of a sense of obligation and duty. Makes me fear an Al Gore-type campaign.

I’m looking forward to hearing from Andrew Yang, Kamala and Mayor Pete tonight. 

 

Marianne Williamson should be good comedic relief. She comes across as a left wing Michelle Bachman.

If the Democrats don’t nominate a candidate that can excite and motivate their base then they’re toast.

 

And yet you think Biden is this person? He is the least exciting and motivating candidate in the field.

The biggest flaw about Yang as a candidate and what makes me the most nervous about him is that you've decided to hop on his bandwagon.

Kamala Harris seems like a candidate that could usurp Biden's moderate support.  She is tough, could wallop Trump in a debate pretty easily, and I think has the right presence.  The question is has the voting base conceded Biden as "the moderate choice" already to where every other candidate has no choice then to look like a progressive alternative?

 

I really hope Andrew Yang goes full ham and answers every question with "Freedom Dividend"

 

Marianne Williamson should be fun to watch because she has that loose cannon appeal, where she doesn't speak with a "running for President" filter. 

 

Curious to see how Biden will try to convince everyone how he is the true progressive.

I am Yang curious. I appreciate his bold approach toward climate change. I think he is the only candidate who has seriously talked about geoengineering as a viable solution.

 

I am open to anyone who is proposing fresh ideas and he seems like an overall sensible and smart person who would make good hires at federal agencies, would understand data-driven policy and rely on experts in their respective fields.

Insane that this is such a white whale for a presidency.  It should be how every administration operates as a matter of routine.

I still don't view Yang as a serious candidate for President.  Just nothing close to the minimum credential threshold.  I think tonight is going to be largely seeing how Biden responds to attacks.  I expect Bernie to come out swinging in his typical charismatic fashion.

One of the real tragedies of the Trump presidency is that we are living in an extremely data-rich environment. Like we have so much data being collected about everything from health to transportation, we literally don't have enough people who can do big data analytics to make sense of it. The Obama admin had started laying the foundations of a data-driven federal government but that's largely been ignored under the buffoon currently in charge.

 

The federal government right now REALLY stands to benefit from a President who understands the value of data and hiring data scientists at federal agencies to make sense of it. Instead of a bunch of brainless goons with no qualifications except their ability to kiss the President's ass, I want the next POTUS to hire experts in their respective fields who will promote policies driven by sound data-analysis.

 

That is why I am Yang and Mayor Pete curious. I think they are both much more likely to rely on expertise and modern approaches to governance than Biden and Sanders. We need a fresh perspective on governance and neither of these two provide it. A fundamental restructuring of the federal agencies to modernize is possible without ever having to rely on Mitch McConnel and the broken legislative branch.

People like Yang, Harris, and Insley should be getting cabinet positions.  Insley is like the polar opposite of what we have in the EPA now and Harris would make a great AG. 

 

It was brought up to look for possible VPs in this field of 20, I'm looking for more them that, theres jus so many of them to jus say if they cant be president they cant be part of the executive branch that sorely needs qualified individuals again.

Good point to bring up, but think governors are replaced by their lieutenants and senator replacements are appointed by their state's governor.  Washington and California are solidly blue, so their replacements should be as well.

Love Warren's response to the SCOTUS decision. I'm not sure how anyone for whom "excitement" is relevant can fail to appreciate her balance of principled anger and rigorous thought. I find it, y'know, pretty ****ing presidential.

Is the GOP really going to argue that everything not right-wing is "socialist" is that where their arguments are headed on every issue?

Ha. Fair enough. I know on economics their answer to everything has been "Look out, Socialism" but Mitch is now claiming efforts to stop gerrymandering are socialist?

so·cial·ism
 
noun
  1. a political and economic theory of social organization which advocates that the means of production, distribution, and exchange should be owned or regulated by the community as a whole.
     
     
    Yep, seems related to voting.
