      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."

Angry Is Not The Word For It

Recommended Posts

This team(calling it a team is not the word for it) this $hit we fans support with our hard eaned money and with our emotions is flat out AWFUL. Yesterday was clear to me they are playing out the season,they don't care if they win another game this season. But, to play like that in front of your fans in your building against your arch rivals is embarassing, unforgiveable, and flat out unprofessional. Phuck u Snyder and your a$$ kissing front office, Phuck u Spurrier and your fun and done high powered offense, and finally phuck you the over paid refuse to work players. I am mad as he11 at the way this season has gone but, yesterday the way they lost to the cow$hits really pi$$es me off, the cow$hits are not a good team if they make the playoff (Skins could have played the role of spoiler but no) they get smoked in first round.

I don't think the Cowboys fans were louder. I think most of the Redskins fans left because they were tired of seeing this horse**** ass product on the field. This team has no heart and hardly none of them bleed burgundy and gold. The players we have on our team have no pride in themselves to come out and compete. Why stick around and watch that?

Humiliating to hear Dallas fans singing in an empty stadium at the end of the game, and cheering for the Bickerstaff TD.

Shameful.

To the fans: Don't want to hear Dallas fans taunting the Skins? Don't sell your tickets.

To Danny: Don't want fans selling tickets? Put a competitive team on the field.

Everyone should just shut the F up about the Dallas fans gloating. There is no rivalry anymore. The relationship between Dallas and Washington is more like inmate-biitch than a rivalry. Every time the Cowboys show up, the ***** Skins just bend over for it. Sad.

I enjoyed the game yesterday. Nice to see the 13 million dollar man with ZERO catches and Zero effort on the pick by Hasselback.

Chad Morton looked good as well (LOL)
