      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."

Just pointing out that you are asserting that McCain and Romney lost because they weren't right wing loony, and Trump won because he successfully pretended to be. 

 

That running a moderate doesnt work, and running an extremist does. 

 

And asserting that you want the Democrats to follow that formula. 

I don't think I'm pretending that Trump pretended to be loony. He is loony and the GOP saw their face in the mirror. Likewise, I think the Dems ought to find the candidate who best represents their ideals and plans, put that candidate forward, and let the chips fly.

 

Just because the true face of the Republican party is a frothing, racist, sack of corruption (plus, a bunch of words my mother told me never to use) doesn't mean the Dems true face is equally bat**** crazy.

Any Democrat with sense (I know, I know) will sit this one out, as Trump did in 2012, and respect the advantage of the incumbent.

 

Maybe you should sit this one out instead.

On a side note, I SO want to see this guy get some traction. I am not naive enough to think he might win the nomination but I'd sure like to see him being heard, maybe a speech at the convention. Lots of straight talk and crossover appeal.

No need to be so mean. He's obviously being sarcastic. 

 

He used the words "Trump" and "respect" in the same sentence.

My initial point was valid. It's very hard to beat an incumbent president. Bush 41 lost because of Perot and Carter lost because of Iranian hostages. Polarizing presidents like Dubya and Obama won second terms because of the incumbent advantage. It's going to take someone extraordinary to overcome that, and I don't see that person among the current contenders.

Yes, her laughable, publicized blood test that proved that she was 99% European and just a smidge Native.  Hell, I think I’m more Native that Elizabeth Warren.  No.  It was a joke.  And instead of people (like you) saying “she might not be Native, but she has a good cause and a nice heart.”  You’re all like “Nenerneeener.  See, it says right here that 1,000 years ago there was a full blown Indian in her family.”

 

Im more Native American than Elizabeth Warren and I consider myself profoundly and undoubtedly, white.

 

I want my democrat nominee to not look a fool when trying to stoop to Trumps ‘s level of mindless publicity games.

Tribes don't use DNA tests to determine whether or not you are a member. Every tribe is different but it's usually based around ancestry history of some kind. Warren being from Oklahoma likely has Native America ancestry of some kind if her family has been in the state for awhile. It's also possible she has been told her whole life she had...even if she doesn't. Its very common in Oklahoma. I believe she claimed Cherokee heritage which becomes even more complicated because there are a few bands of Cherokee outside of the Government recognized tribe. I am a member of a tribe based off family ancestry because of a treaty signed in the 1800s, yet I am not a member of the tribe whom my Great great grandmother was full blood member of. It's really not as simple as DNA test.

 

I completely agree with the last comment. She should have just ignored this entirely. It was a trap and she fell right into it.

You're entitled to your opinion even if we disagree.  I'd say given what we know with this guy in charge and the absolute rebuke we saw in the mid-terms, we absolutely can and should try to get him out of office.  He doesn't deserve to be there and proving to be the exact threat everyone feared he'd be, this isn't funny anymore.

 Obama lost harder in his first midterm test than Trump did by a significant margin and still won a second term. Granted, he had the entire media establishment behind him, but 'Build the Wall' is a more visceral call to arms than 'Hope and Change'.

 

Don't make the same mistake that got Trump elected in basing your entire argument on what we've seen before in our politics. 

 

"Build the Wall" won't stand a chance against the Special Counsel report, GOP can't keep hemorrhaging Women and the Suburbs and expect to win a presidential election.  I mean, dude, Kansas has a Democratic governor now, that's how bad of an ass-whopping that was, the house numbers don't do it justice. 

 

If you stick with your point, now Trump has pretty much the entire news media against him, even Fox News is calling him out about his hypocrisy over the wall.  When Fox News is starting to get tired of your BS...bruh...

I don't see any hypocrisy regarding the Wall. 

I intentionally deleted the rest of you post even though I read it because this is what you don't get.  Fox is mad because he said Mexico would pay for the Wall and now he's shutdown the government because we won't.  He also said he'd own the Shutdown, now he's trying to pin this on someone else. 

 

This isn't even about a wall anymore, its about making it seem he wants to keep a promise to appease the people he thinks he needs to stay in power.  Whatever policy he stands by that I actually do agree with, I have to keep in mind this is probably why he's saying it.

I get it just fine friend, he's doing whatever he can to try and fulfill a campaign promise, because that's what his supporters want. I am under no illusion that Donald Trump is an avatar of all that is good and honorable, but I can see that he is the only person within the political system trying to break the awful stasis that has been in place since 1965. Unchecked third world immigration is turning the USA into the third world, and Democrats and Republicans don't give a damn because they are safe in their gated redoubts whilst Americans have to deal with shrinking wages, cities that resemble hellholes and a future for their kids of crippling debt or menial labor in a fast food joint or an Amazon warehouse. Not one of your precious 'progressives' will do one thing to improve the life of average Americans, they will feed at the trough with the GOPe and throw a bone to the oppressed minority du jour.

Sensitive ass bamma, no, you're about halfway home to people thinking you're racist, they typically ban people from the tailgate for that.  Good luck.

I'm going to let this suffice because if I reply to that fool I'm guaranteed to get banned.

That would have been my preferred action by her.

 

Still, think it was foolish to claim NA and then release a blood test that shows she’s 99% white.
