      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."

2018 Season Injury News

Recommended Posts

If you include Quinn and Marshall who we removed from IR, we've had a total of 15 players on IR this year.

But that's not even the craziest thing.

Of those 15 players on IR : 14 are offensive, and only 1 is defensive.

The other sad thing is, there's still 6 games left

Does that include Arie? 

 

Trying to think of the impact players on offense on IR:

 

Scherff, Luavao (I guess?), Richardson, Quinn and Marshall (returned from IR), who else?

 

crowder and CT are not on IR...

We should be able to overcome injuries to guys like:

Kouandjio

Garner

Kelley

Catalina

Christian 

Sims 

 

Those are back end roster type of guys. So it's no big deal.

 

The only injuries that are a real problem this year are Lauvao and Scherff. Others are no big deal. Alex wasn't playing great in any way so I rank his injury as less prejudiciable to us than both.

@Wildbunny exactly.

 

Actually, the bigger injuries have been to guys who aren’t on IR, like Trent, Crowder and CT.

 

However, as I said before the season, these guys are always hurt so it’s foolish to think they won’t be hurt this year and count on them.

 

The CT injury, however, (the first run injury) was most maddening becaus it came in garbage time and Jay called a route for CT over the middle and then Alex hung him out to dry.

 

if there ever was a microcosm of the entire season, it’s that play.  Self inflicted wounds and bad QB play.

What exactly happened to Jamison Crowder's ankle?  He must have sprained the everloving crap out of it, he's been gone 7 weeks.  I can't remember what play it happened, or maybe it was during practice.

According to this, Moses could be out for a while.

He's suddenly missing key parts of his body.

Yea, I don't know why the tweet didn't embed, so you could see it right away.

First time that's happened to me, and I posted the tweet the way I always do.

I did not purposely hide it, I'll say that for sure ! In fact, I was in the process of taking a screenshot instead, so

people wouldn't freak out too much.

Also, instead of searching twitter, you can just copy/paste the url, it would have been much quicker.

Not sure besides a sprained ankle. He hurt it during the Saints game. 

 

The first MRI didn't show anything so it didn't seem serious, but he had a second MRI before the Houston game that showed more damage. Seems like he's headed to maybe surgery and IR but the team still seems confident he'll recover.

Annnndddddddd Trey Quinn placed back on IR, so his season is over. Dunbar also done for the season, being placed on IR. 

 

 

Did Dunbar re-aggrivate it or is this the same nerve issue he's been dealing with for over a month?

I’m guessing the same thing he’s been dealing with for over a month, but i dont know. I’m sure Gruden will say during his press conference after practice

The Quinn thing disappoints me.  He flashed as a capable guy in limited action, but he barely played and got significant injuries twice. 

 

Makes that Crowder decision trickier if Quinn isnt gonna be durable enough to take the spot in the slot and at PR.

That epitomizes how bad it's been - when the same player hits ER twice in the same season.

Is that a record? It would have to have at least tied the record. The Redskins just need to poach other teams practice squads and get the best players they can.

I think if we still had a legit shot to make the playoffs some of these guys wouldn’t be going to ir.. jay sees the writing on the wall...

We stil do, we have two very winnable games. Crowder being back in the lineup is probably why Quinn is going back on IR. And Dunbar, well that injury just wasn’t going to get any better no matter what. I don’t think this is Gruden waving the white flag just cause we’re 6-6 and 1 win Vs the giants (and a cowboys loss Sunday) away from a 3 way tie in the division. 

 

Hes not like our fans who are throwing in the towel already 😂
