      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."

Seahawks are rebuilding and clearing house in a hurry ... looks like a real fire sale with Sherman and Lane on their way out and offers being taken for Thomas ... 

 

the he question is ...sitting 11 million over the cap- why did the eagles go for Bennett

They dumped Celek and Torrey Smith for 10 million and I think they had restructured lane Johnson for another 7.5 million. When Vinny Curry gets released that will be another 9.5 million. Some other moves popped up on twitter that I can't remember.  

That was a copy and paste from another MB.

Michael Bennett and Haloti Ngata.  Are they going to sign any DLine FA's that aren't at risk of breaking a hip? :rofl89::eagles_suck:

Are the Redskins going to sign any WRs that can break one for a touchdown?:cheers:

Actually he isn't too bad.  I live near Seattle so I, "Get to," watch a lot of Seahawks games (barf).  He just has some injury problems.  The Seattle fan base is one of the biggest bandwagon fanbases I have ever seen though.

Looks like Bennett is gonna suit up for the Federal Pen team next year.  Seattle probably knew about it and fleeced the Eagles.

Its hard to believe Seattle didn't know and even if he escapes the legal side of this I could see the league doing a 10 game ban or something pretty aggressive.

 

You cant bull rush old ladies.

Why did the Hawks give up Bennett for chump change? Cap move?

I wondered the same. One would think at least the Seahawks had to have known about this situation. I mean this is from last years SB not this years. It has been kicking around for a while. 

Politically this pits a paraplegic guard against a high profile NFL player who takes a knee during the National Anthem in Texas.

Thank you for linking an article. At the time I posted nothing was on NFL.com and I had just heard about it on 106.7.

With all the cameras around the stadium, I'd be surprised if there isn't video of this incident and wonder why it wasn't settled long before an indictment. If he just knocked her over as she tried to tell him to go another way.... wow. Somewhere Ole Rog is taking practice swings with the ban hammer.

I highly doubt Bennett will serve any time for this attempt to cut down an outspoken black athlete.

 

14 months to come up with the charge? All those police officers at the game and no one thought of it then? Smells like BS.

 

 

They are admitting this was crafted out of thin air.

Yes, police  way down in Texas decided to cook up this whole conspiracy  just to get a somewhat-known player from way up in Seattle (at the time).

 

I  mean, they don't have anything else better to do with their time. :rolleyes:

 

Why don't we give the story a little time before dealing the "race card" around.

 

It's a little early, even for you.

Not only the timing of this is interesting (over a year late) but also the fact that a security company hired to provide security for the Super Bowl would actually hire a 66 year old Parapalegic to guard anywhere in the stadium, yet apparently this one was guarding access to the field.

 

Now this is supposed to be the "most secure event on the planet" but this is the security at this event? Michael Bennett could have been toting a bomb but never fear because we've got somebody's great grandmother in a wheel chair guarding access.

I have to agree somewhat with Benning, this whole thing is just strange and doesn't add up on the surface as of yet. Will be interesting to see how this plays out.

They clearly don’t. Hence why they waited  nearly 14 months to charge him with zero physical evidence.

How does one reply to a post and say crazy things about said post, yet doesn’t read the post? Just weird.

I agree we need to let things play out before anyone jumps to conclusions but in your tweet, it says they have a police officer as an eyewitness, that's definitely evidence.

 

Making it sound like they have nothing at all is a bit of a stretch unless there is no eyewitness.

Go back and read what I said. “Physical evidence.”

 

They said they have no video or photograph of the incident. Also eyewitness accounts are not reliable. Especially one after 13 months.

 

And notice what the Police Chief said about Bennett. He mentioned crap about “his character” and other dog whistling BS. He also said the police couldn’t find Bennett even tho Bennett was interviewed on the field after the game. This is BS.

 

here is video of the “assault”
