      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."

Presidential Election 2020 - Baby Sharpie vs Batwoman or Batman

Recommended Posts

Quote

“If we don’t learn some lessons from this election we will not be a majority party,” said Representative Ann Wagner of Missouri, who represents suburban St. Louis, calling for a caucus that “looks more like America.”

But several internal moves since the election have left some of the Republican women concerned their leaders still do not fully grasp the importance of promoting diversity.

Mr. McCarthy passed over Ms. Wagner to install a male successor to Mr. Stivers at the National Republican Congressional Committee, according to multiple Republicans briefed on the decision; after dutifully serving on the less-than-desired House ethics panel, Representative Susan Brooks of Indiana lost her very-much-desired post on the steering committee, which controls committee assignments, to a male colleague.

Representative Kay Granger, a long-serving lawmaker from Texas, was nearly denied the ranking member slot on the House Appropriations Committee for a more junior male colleague, winning the post by a single vote on the third ballot, according to two lawmakers familiar with the private vote count.

The ‘Winning by Losing’ 2020 Democratic Fantasy Ticket: O’Rourke/Gillum

https://townhall.com/columnists/myrakahnadams/2018/12/07/the-winning-by-losing-2020--democratic-fantasy-ticket-orourkegillum-n2537124

 

No experience, no problem! What matters is an O’Rourke/Gillum ticket with two young liberals, 180 degrees away from President Trump, might have a decent shot of winning a combined 67 electoral votes — nearly 25 percent of the 270 needed to win the White House.

Democrats could be dreaming about the largest red state and the largest swing state both landing in the blue column on election night 2020. It’s the future they say. What’s not to like?

Gillum has something alleged ethical problems. 

 

Let's see Beto on the national stage first.  He may look good now but once he's out there campaigning, he could fall flat.

In fairness, Hillary probably got 1,000,000 more votes than potus poltroon in Ohio.

I can’t see him falling flat, but I really hope we support one of the women & let that woman crush Trump so our kids can grow up knowing the most repugnant man on the planet isn’t more valuable than the most qualified, hard working, brilliant - women. I’m disappointed in the Dems lack of support for Hillary, she earned the Presidency despite trumps crimes & Comeys treasonous bull****...she had the White House stolen from her & Dems don’t support her because of focus groups. It’s weak. 

 

Tangentially, if we nominate Bernie, it’s time to head to Iceland. Puffins are legit creatures.

She legally can’t run for another 6 years until she is 35.

 

I love her social media presence calling out corruption and injustices. 

 

She is stepping into the face of the next generation of Democratic leadership and her ideas like the green new deal and Medicare for all are going to be very popular ideas that Dems need to rally behind for 2020

 

edit: not saying she came up with those but that she is really

pushing them on her social media and is getting a lot of support

And a large portion of Dems threw their hands up and said “screw it” when Bernie lost and either stayed home or went 3rd party etc

For the 40th time:

 

Same amount of Sanders supporters stayed home or voted Trump/3rd party as as every other major election in this country going back at least 2 decades. (primary voters of losing candidates) The majority of these people were not Democrats. (like myself) 

 

More Cruz/Rubio/Kasich supporters voted for Hillary Clinton then Sanders supporters voted for Trump.

 

More Hillary Clinton PUMAs voted for John McCain, then Sanders voters went Trump. 

 

 

People in this country are ****ing stupid. You're focusing on the 10% that is even dumber then the average American.
