Monday Night Football

16 posts in this topic

This might be the hardest pick for me of the year.

Slaton or Jones Drew

Slaton has been hurt a bit, but Houston doesnt have any other RB right now with green out.

Jones Drew doesnt get alot of yards becuase of taylor, but he might score once or twice!

Whos your pick?

You still aren't a fan of MJD are you? Its gonna be a close one for me tonight though. Ive got

MJD and +33 points, going against Slaton,Andre Johnson, and There kicker. A win tonight gives me a first round playoff bye!

I think you gotta go with Jones-Drew they will find a way to use him and he is heating up. Top 10 RB as of right now

You deserve to lose if you started MJD! The team is a mess and you don't know what you'll get each week.

After what Taylor said about the team being the most horrible team he has ever played on, I am surprised he was in there at all. Even if he didn't say it, I am still surprised he plays as much as he does.

Its easy to look smart after the game is already played isn't it.

MJD let me down last night too.

I had a miserable first half of the season, but won 6 of the last 7 weeks and, after a buttload of free agent acquisitions that cost me a $1 each, I managed to get into a tie for the last playoff spot going into this week. I won my game, but I needed the other half of the tie to lose, and they were playing against MJD and Andrae Johnson last night.

I needed those two guys to score 23 points to clinch my spot, but they combined to only score 20. So no playoffs for me. :sob: :sob: They started off so well last night too, I thought after the first half that those two would easily get it done. But they both disappeared in the second half.

The wrong team got ahead. If the Jags had gotten ahead, they would have been running more (good news for MJD). And if the Texans were behind they would have passed more (good news for A. Johnson). However, the complete opposite happened, and it took me right out of the playoffs.

Drew Rosenhaus....would push his grandmother out of the way to pick up a one dollar bill. Guys like him, owners and GMs that ink up those contracts, are the guys I blame for pushing Joe Six Pack and Joe the Plumber grin out of NFL stadiums.

I guess I'm supposed to say that markets will dictate what people get paid, but make no mistake about it the real fans are watching games at home these days. Corporations and the wealthy are buying up tickets and using the golf clap. No wonder the jumbotron has to tell them when to cheer after they show up after halftime.

Rosenhaus is just so phony trying to praise the Giants in hopes that Plaxico doesn't get cut and have to sign for less money cutting out on what he would make. Then the guy takes the high road by not commenting on guns in the NFL. Oh well, by the time he was asked those questions I knew that all that was coming out of his mouth was rubbish.

I had Slaton on my team too, but I already had my game won before Slaton ever took the field. Needless to say, I completely slaughtered my opponent this week.

Too bad i couldn't transfer some of my excess to the team playing against the person I was tied with.

It sucks to be out of the playoffs by three points.

Ever since they pulled it from Primetime television and made it an ESPN thing it has been lame!

I'm too poor for cable so I no longer get MNF unless I stream it off the Net, which usually is sketchy at best!

I agree, used to at least count on watching a quality game, now maybe a few games per season are matching up two top teams

    • Another disaster. I tried making relatively safe picks, and bombed. I have gone from the top 60 after two events all the way down to just over the 90th percentile. I need to just go with my gut
    • that is what we were thinking too.
    • Live link.   http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/features/webcams/falconcam/index.html      


    • BEFORE BEGINNING

      Before you begin, make sure you have a good strong battery and make sure it's charged up. If you have a bad or weak battery, you may want to replace it because if it doesn't crank good and strong, you are likely to get a low, inaccurate reading. Make sure your engine is warmed up to operating temperature(if possible). About 10 minutes of riding should do.

      First, take out the spark plug and thread in the adapter for the compression tester. Make sure you have the correct size adapter for your particular ATV. Slide your kill switch to the "off" position. Some ATVs won't crank over with the kill switch in the "off" position, so if yours is like this, then you will need to either unhook your ignition coil or ground the end of the spark plug wire to a good ground. You can use a jumper wire with alligator clips on each end to ground it. Next, make sure the throttle is in the wide open position. You can either hold the throttle lever with your thumb or you may be able to tape it or use a zip tie to fasten it to your handlebars to hold it in the wide open position. If you don't have the throttle in the wide open position, you will probably get too low of a reading. Also, if you are testing a newly rebuilt engine, the engine needs to have been run for, at least, 30 or 40 minutes or you will probably get too low of a reading.

      NOTE: Before you begin with the actual test, make sure the threaded adapter is screwed in good and isn't leaking any air out around it.

      ACTUAL TESTING

      With the throttle in the wide open position, push the start button and crank the engine over until the hand on the gauge stops moving. Each time the engine turns over the hand should raise a little more until it reaches the maximum compression of the engine. When it stops, that is your compression reading. This usually takes no more than 10 seconds. Try to avoid cranking an engine for more than 10 seconds at a time as this is hard on the starter and the battery. Now, push the relief valve on your compression gauge and that will reset the hand back to zero. It's a good ideal to repeat the test a couple or three times to make sure you get an accurate reading. On kick start models, it will be the same procedure, but obviously you will be kicking it over instead of using a start button. Worn piston rings and cylinder walls will increase the number of strokes it takes to reach the maximum reading. If you're kicking, it could possibly take as many as 10-20 kicks to get the highest reading.

      THE READING

      You will need to check your repair manual for your particular model for the correct compression specifications. See note below. Usually, an engine will run OK if it has at least 100 PSI of compression. Most engines will have somewhere between 100-250 and some as high as 300 PSI, depending on the engine. Sometimes they will run with under 100 PSI, but usually not very well. If you get a low reading, you can do a "wet test" to try to help determine the problem.

      If your reading is too high, then you probably have carbon built up on your piston and combustion chamber.

      NOTE: You may get a low reading on some engines because some engines have a decompressor assembly built into the camshaft. Check the service manual for your quad to see whether or not your quad has a decompressor assembly built into the cam.

      WET TEST

      If you got a low reading, pour about 1-2 teaspoons of clean motor oil down into the cylinder through the spark plug hole and do the compression test again. If your reading increases, then your rings or cylinder walls are probably worn. If your reading doesn't increase, then it's probably your valves. You could have a bent valve, you may have leaky valve seats, or your valve clearance may not be adjusted properly. Also, low compression can be caused by a blown head gasket.

      CAUSES OF LOW COMPRESSION

      *Worn piston rings or worn or damaged cylinder walls
      *Leaking valves
      *Valve clearance not properly set
      *Blown head gasket

      CAUSE OF HIGH COMPRESSION (stock engines)

      *Carbon buildup in combustion chamber and on piston

      NOTE: Compression testing is a good way to keep track or "gauge" the wear in your engine. When you first get your ATV or when you rebuild the engine in your ATV, you can do a compression test and then later on, you can do them periodically. This will help you determine the wear in your engine each time you do a compression test and will guide you in knowing when your engine needs rebuilding.

      This is about all I can think of. I hope I didn't leave anything out and I hope this helps everyone with their compression tests.
    • As dumb as this sounds how is this done?
    • Try a compression check. And make sure the choke is opening all the way.
    • They are not the best out their but for the price and your average person not too bad I guess, Its going to send lead to where its pointed. This is probably what is going to happen he is going to buy a package shoot it for awhile then start upgrading everything to how he wants it and it is going to end up costing way more than if he just built one himself how he wants it.  
    • Hello, well I convinced my brother in-law to pick up my buddies old 1980 185 although pretty sure he said it was bored out to a 200? Here is the deal it's been sitting for a solid 8 years. I know it ran fine before. Not the delema-----   It starts right up (he bought a new carb odd amazon) although it sounds like a jet with high rpms. Looked at the throttle cable that's fine. Floats are fine. So he plugged this hole in the air filter and got it to idle down although when he hit the gas wouldn't get any power. Read a few things online and they tell you to just bypass the filter box and all that so back to amazon we went to get one of those filters that mount right up to the carb and it's still the same issue..   I just haven't seen anything like this? Do you guys have any thoughts or tricks that we/he could try?! Thanks in advance
    • Hi Everyone,  I'm looking into buying my first true fish finder and I'm a little perplex with the mapping card situation.  I'm looking at Humminbird Helix 5's and 7's.  I'm drawn to the autochart feature.  From my understanding, you can record 8 hours of charting onto the internal storage, but, is there any native mapping included on the unit or do I absolutely have to get some sort of mapping chip, zerolines or lake master, or navionics?  Can I store data on a blank SD card?  I've been researching this a lot and haven't found any conclusive answers. Thanks everyone!
