frerotte out??

45 posts in this topic

I heard on the radio this morning that he has a fracture in his lower back and that he might be done for good. This is according to Kev Jackson from the Bemidji Radio stations. Anyone else hear anything???

I've got my seat locked on the Gus Bus. I havent been happy with anything I've seen from T-Jack. Not saying either one is the qb we need but I'd rather have Gus then T-Jack. SO lets hope gets back out there soon.

I dont mind this, it will give T-Jack his last chance to prove himself, if he comes out and does really good, he will be a starter for next year. If he comes out and looks like he did earlier this year, then hopefully our front office sees this and gets a good starter for next season. I am sure everyone knows Gus wasnt going to be back as our starter for next season.

How much do people need to see from T-Jack to figure out he's not a NFL Starting quarterback? He doesn't understand the defense. He makes dumb plays, just like last week when throwing into TRIPLE coverage. He takes too many hits. I know Gus has more int's than td's but he's been winning games. I beleive he gives us our best chance to win. I'd love to see Sage Rosenfels in a purple jersey next year.

I agree to point, but also agree that he has had his chances. Don't have a choice now so we will see what he does.

Oh I agree he had his chances! I am just saying maybe if he comes in and flops, the front office will see it as well!

yeah I think he looked really good, but he's the type of guy that will just stink it up. I dont' know, gus or tjack, I think we are in the same boat with either of them.

Maybe benching T-Jack will be the wake up call he needs. I wasnt impressed with either QB last weekend but maybe T-Jack will wake up this weekend and realize this is his last shot. If he blews it and we dont make the play off I dont want to see him back. Either way in the off season we need a another QB.

Are you guys nuts,

Frerotte has stunk it up. The only reason we're winning is the defense not Frerotte. T-jack couldn't be any worse.

Maybe sitting and learning has done T-Jack some good. We'll see.

That was a zone he threw into not triple coverage and I'd rather see him being agressive than as timid as he was in the first two games..

T-jack looked good in the last game. Even more so considering he received no first team practice reps.

I think he beats Arizona in a close game.

I agree, he cant do much worse then Gus. If Gus was still playing and wining games, I say you leave Gus in poor offense or not, if he is wining, thats all that matters! But now T-Jack has another chance to prove himself, he may come out and surprise everyone! Then again, he may not blush

All I can say is wow, you guys would be some great scouts. Didnt impress you last weekend...wow. If the reciever does not fall down he is right there. It would take up my afternoon to write more but it would be a complete waste of my time. If you think Gus should be put back in.

The problem is all the games we wasted on Gus. T-Jack really needed those games to develop. I don't give him much of Chance to succeed now, not that it matters to you guys you have already determined that. If T-Jack would have played the game's he should have played he clearly would be a better QB then Gus is now in his washed up pathetic presence!

Lets face it sometimes the WHINING majority gets there way and in this instance it really hurt us as team.

T-Jack is kind of like Obama it's not going to matter what he does there will always be the HATERS!... grin

So get ready for a thousand T-Jack Sucks post in the near future.

From me, only if he actually does! I will support him as the starter, but with a short leash!

I think this will be the week to see if T-Jack has the stuff or not, I go along with the theory I heard on KFAN, don't know if it was vikes postgame or what, but it may have been a little easier for T-Jack to get thrown into the game and succeed because basically, Gus is down, get in there! This week he has time to sit there and now mentally know he is the starting QB.

Why should he have a short leash, Gus and Burnt are tied for most picks this year. Only difference is Burnt has attpted a lot more throws then Gus.. I didn't look up the sacks but I am sure he is close to the top. Like I said before if Tavaris plays like Gus the last few weeks he would have been run out of town.

I think got a case of that old saying too, the back-up QB is always the most popular one on the team.

Thats my point because Chili caved into the WHINING majority and wasted 10 games on a washed up never has been 40 year old QB we'll never know if T-Jack could have been decent.

I look for T-Jack to make huge mistakes and the WHINING to escalate.

We have guys complaining about how he played last week which is ludicrous to say the least.

Obama?

I don't think it was chilly's decision to bench the stud QB he drafted and was going to mold and develop into the next great QB

If T-JACK has another Great Game, the Tards will "STILL" have something negitive to say.

I don't think it was Chillipepper that wanted T-Junk out. I will support him if he can play this week. If he plays well this week and beats the Cards, then he should be the starter the week after. Gus isn't very good either, but has a winning record and that's what counts.

Exactly! Gus was winning with bad stats. T-Jack was losing with bad stats. Which one do you choose? I will take a win everytime!

    • 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!
