      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."

Game Day Thread - Philthy at Redskins

I've read the article about Snyder's disconnect with reality but assuming he is at the stadium in his suite watching this game, how can he not comprehend that the Redskins are just not an NFL caliber team right now.  This is not a "once we get everyone back it will be fine" kind of situation.  You have clowns running this team, mediocre guys coaching the team......

Bruce and Jay will sell him on injuries and he already believes the fan issue is due to Lafamina.

I've never played football in my life, but a call on 106.7 said that they get hurt so much because they don't do hard practices. Can anyone confirm this through experience?

Pretty much like anything else. If you don't build up the callous or the muscle memory before going full speed contact yeah, you're more likely to get hurt.

One first down for the whole game correct?

 

And it's by the punter on a 4th down trick play?

 

Ok great just checking...

This might be a stretch of some sort, but the fact that they wore the gold pants today intrigues me. The gold pants were specifically brought back by Allen, and they haven't worn them much at all this year (if at all?). Is it some sort of statement from Allen? Why go back to those pants at this point? Seems intentional on some level. Like, Lafemina is gone, let's bring back the gold pants.

Jay Gruden special.  Not trying anything even remotely unpredictable and the eagles defense is ready for everything

The house that Snyder built is crumbling because of a weak foundation.

Truly not an nfl qb......so naturally he'll be our starter next year.

No, McCoy will start the season.  Until the second drive when he will get hurt.

I cant because every practice I have ever played or coached has been hard. To play the game any other way is just stupid.

How this mess of an excuse for an NFL team has managed to win 7 games is beyond me. They have to be one of it not the worst team in the league.

Having the most players on IR and injuries has something to do with it.   The starting QB is a 4th string player who hadn’t thrown an NFL pass in three years and was playing rec league in San Diego.  Prior to smith going down the Skins were capable of competing with and beating other mediocre teams.  Now not so much.

I think most believe bringing back the dreadful mustard and ketchup uniforms is a statement by Allen.

 

Otherwise, why bring back a uniform that is so despised?

Yeah. If we end up getting shut out in this game I dont know how you can keep Jay and Bruce. I mean this has been a second half of season collapse worse than any other in team history. Injuries or not it is completely unacceptable.
