Whats the deal?

Recommended Posts

You think Jr. is purposely missing his pits to take the pressure off of his crews? I was watching the nationwide race last night and sure enough he drives right by? I know he gets pretty worked up about the media passing blame to his cup crew chief!

What do you think, is he losing it or is there an agenda?

I think he needs his eyes checked or maybe he can't handle all the pressure put on him. Either way I think if he can win a race (not fuel mileage) his confidence will return and he would get 1or 2 more wins in the season.

Durring the race yesterday, he said he never even asked were his pit was and drove right past it, something about how they never talked about it before the race.

My question is Where is the spotter? I think JR needs to have some pit crew practic durring the week just to make him smarter.

He said he has 20/15 vision but it sounds like lack of concentration more than anything. Good question about the spotter.....does everyone go get a hot dog when the yellow comes out or what? He said after Daytona that they never practiced pit stops until this year and now he's having issues. lol.

He had issues with it last year too, just not nearly as many. It seems like he has an issue with pitting at least once in every race. There is a fouled plug in one of his team's cylinders.

I heard during the race today that Eury Jr was his spotter for the Busch race, so maybe there's a common theme here?? Typically the spotter counts him down until he's near the pit stall and then the crew chief takes over. Same for leaving the stall but in reverse. They were OK today I believe but they need to be almost perfect for the rest of the season if they want to have a chance.

Are the 5 and 88 going to change crew chiefs this week? Seems I heard that on TV during the race today.

As far as his pitting goes, I think he needs to get his head a bit more in the game. This should not happen quite this often.

Really? I heard the 07 and 29 are changing entire teams, but didn't hear anything about Jr and Martin. There was some rumors but Henrick said that wasn't true.

I read somewhere that the 5 nd 88 were to change crew chiefs and then Martin won a race and it was put on hold. Now I hear that again.

I believe it was the Jayski site that I saw it.

The quick work on pit road by the #88 crew in Talladega helped Earnhardt Jr. to a second-place finish at the 2.66-mile oval. The team’s Chevrolet Impala SS spent the least amount of time on pit road – 255.440 seconds.

    • Anyone still at it?   not sure that i will get Isaac out anymore, will still ask these last few days.   Good luck everyone.
    • Haha, sounds like you have a good head on your shoulders and great perspective, Borch.  Plus, I think it's good to be upset about missing!  It motivates a guy to take more selective shots and make better shots.  My shot selection was ok, but my execution was not good.  I made a good shot at a stationary target, but the target was walking.  D-U-M, dumb!!!  Such is life!  Next year Morgan and I will shoot turkeys (as long as I can still get her out there).  
    • From what I read the idiot did not tell anybody....was asked to play in the World's and declined saying his wrists hurt so they made him go in and found the torn tendons...what a duffus.
    • It reminds me if the first year I took my son turkey hunting.  He had several close calls but didn't get a bird.  He was upset.  I said, "Why are you upset?  We got to hunt together for several days and had several exciting encounters.  If you shot one the first day we would have missed all that fun together"  He thought about it for a while and he smiled.  The older I get, the less its about the kill.  Reframing what I thought success was has added to my hunts.  Now, if I could get less upset when I miss a bird I'd have it all figured out.  
    • Excellent.  Nicely done.
    • You got it, Borch!  I was disappointed with how the season ended, but you're definitely right!  I also learned a trick this year- cards!  Morgan really enjoyed playing cards with me in the blind.  It was a good way to pass the time and we enjoyed it quite a bit.  We had a great season together and enjoyed it a ton!     That last encounter we had was really something!  I'm convinced the worst thing birds can do to a bowhunter is to come in to the deeks is stand there and stare.  I'd rather they hung up and didn't come in or did pretty much anything but that.  It makes it virtually impossible to get a bow drawn!  The turkey was at about 5 yards, because I knew we I needed one close for Morgan.  However, at five yards and staring directly in the direction of the blind, she was smart to not try to draw.  That dang bird stood there for two full minutes and didn't move a muscle.  Morgan had a smile from ear to ear and at one point told me "I was so excited and my heart was pounding so hard I thought I might die!"     It would have been a slam dunk with her crossbow, but she wanted to get one with a vertical bow.  I'm proud of her for sticking with it and she said "I'm just fine with not shooting one, Dad."  I'm glad she's ok with that.  I wish I was more ok with it...  but, that's hunting!  
    • Sounds like he is going to bring "fire" to the team haha.  Hoping he can come up with something to do with all the aging players who aren't living up to their contracts.     Also heard that Coyle played the last 2 months with torn ligaments in his wrists.  Going in for surgery.  Kind of an eye opener really, Coyle with torn wrist ligaments is better than anything they could've moved up that is healthy?  Uh oh....
    • Hey, it's all good. Morgan and you spending time together in the outdoors and getting a close encounter is what it's all about.     Sometimes the birds win and we simply run out of time.
