      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."

I think things are pointing to us being a better team than anyone realizes. With a little luck we’ll have the chance to play meaning games at the end. I do hope Jay let’s KOC do his thing, fresh eyes and mindset with the O would be godsend.

Haven't heard it either.  But if Collins says they are winning the SB, bank on it.   Keep in mind, Keenum took Minny to the Championship game just 2 years ago.  It would be perfect for me for it to go down this season since the SB is in Miami just a 30 minute drive from me.  If people want to do a tailgate thing before the game, I am in.  😀

On the bright side, one step closer to a good 1st round pick in a loaded draft class...

Now c'mon if ya ask me this comment is over the line for this hear POSITIVE THREAD... still look towards this season and stay positive confident and faithful that the skins will find a good replacement..think of last years Adrian Peterson this year..but on defense lol

I guess it depends on if you consider a higher draft pick a positive or not.  If you think we have a real chance of winning the Superbowl this year, I guess it can be viewed as a negative post.  If not, I think it's a very positive bright-side to a crappy situation, at least in my eyes.  I guess the question is: is this the irrationally exuberant thread or the realistic happy thoughts thread?

We can't even get through tc and we're looking towards next year's draft... This is the kind of stuff that makes time go by so fast...this and Walmart having Xmas stuff out in August.. not trying to bash sorry.. definitely a good juju positive thread, there's nothing positive about overlooking this upcoming season to the next.. might as well wash away being a Redskins fan period till they win the Superbowl than be a fan again.
