      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."

Trump Border Wall Post-Shutdown Discussion (Wall-Fight)

Has anyone asked about his logic that "building the wall will save billions of dollars a month"? Has anyone challenged him on the fact that the caravan was stopped without his precious wall?
 

 

I literally do not believe anything he says or writes.  As I do with any serial liar. 

 

Sometimes, as with the example you cite, it's easy to do because of the blatant absurdity of what he says.  The entire annual budget of the U.S. Border Patrol in 2017 was $3.8 billion.

Government can't build something out of a material they can't find.

 

 

Don't tell that to Trey Gowdy or Devin Nunes or the ****-eating herd of swine that is the 'freedom caucus'  or many another useless house goper since they seem to dedicate their efforts to exactly that, and at our great expense---you'll spoil their xmas.

Ferg.. as i've said.. it's all been so obvious.. all of it has been done with a smirk and a gob of spit right in the eye of the suckers who happily swallow it. Thy have no respect for the intelligence of the base, they have boiled it down to the dumbest most easily manipulated bunch we've got. Why should they respect it? It's what they want. Mindless adoration and fealty.

as often the case, i have a great plan, based on a well-informed non-partisan unemotional objective accurate-fact-based analysis, of how the freedom caucus can best serve the nation during these tumultuous times..........but our rules and possibly some federal laws stifle my ability to properly detail it

Absolutely incredible the depth of stupidity.

With any luck Trump will slip up one day and tell them all to hold their breath for an hour.

That'll go a long way to clearing up this infestation.

I thought Mexico was paying for the stupid ****ing wall.

Well not directly... or indirectly... but if you use your imagination. See, that's the problem with the left. No imagination.

Do these goddamn morons understand that you can't just grab some money and start building **** wherever you want? Especially if it's on federal land. Also, who exactly are they planning on giving the money to, and how? As a tax or donation to the government? If that's the case they have no control over how that money is spent, otherwise I would have just written "To be paid towards making all members of Congress wear clown suits during the work week" on my taxes every year.

 

What would be hilarious is if the person who set up that GoFundMe is actually a Trump hater who turns around and donates the money to an immigrant rights charity.

I do like the explanation of why this isn't a scam. Though it feels like a total scam. But hey, the guy says they have a bunch of high level connections that yadda yadda yadda. Nobody can even agree what it'll cost. $8B $25B? $70B?

This is such a bad joke. Thanks for this wonderful Christmas gift you golden fool, I think I'll be required to still report if they shut things down, somehow I'm essential. This is beyond irritating.
