Had to get voted in to the all star race

Disappointing performance from him to say the least. Mailed it in for the pre-lim race since he knew he had the fan vote in the bag, then once he got there, it looked like he could have cared less about even improving his position during the race.

I root for the guy since he's local but in reality he's just an average driver who has had larger than life expectations thrown at him ever since Sr. died. It's got to be difficult when your name is exactly the same as arguably the greatest stock car driver ever.

People expect way too much from Earnhardt, Jr. Most seem to have a false sense of ability tied to him when in fact he's just another average Cup Driver.

He has these unrealistic expectations put on him because he has been given major NASCAR rides based on his name alone.

He is marginal as a driver at best. I wish we could all admit to that.

Any other year some of this would have even more credence but he's 4th in the standings ahead of such legends as Stewart and Gordon

He rarely crashes a car. I don't think he will ever win a championship, but he will always be lurking around if he continues to finish the race with all the fenders on.

I will say this, I am not a fan of his on the track but he is definitely one kick-ass guy.

So is Junior's real name is David Pearson or Richard Petty?

    • I wouldn't say he made him look bad, just expendable (and overpaid).
    • Good let them. Will just allow other good players to drop to us in round 2-4

    • And this is my problem.  Its not that he can or can't run from the shotgun. The problem is that he never has and you just don't know. Will he have the patience to wait beside the QB with the ball in his belly? And during that time the line is blocking and shifting in front of him. There is no definite "hole" to run to. After the QB finally leaves the ball to him, does he have the read-option vision to find that little crease in the line, plant his foot, and cut through it? Jonathan Stewart does, but Stew played in a spread, shotgun offense in college, so he already knew what he was doing. Can Fournette do that well? The answer at this point, since he's never been asked to, is "maybe". Do you spend the #8 overall pick rolling the dice on "maybe"? At a position that in general is the most short-lived in the NFL? Maybe DG and Rivera do exactly that.  If so, I can understand their gamble and would hope for the best. Fournette is a great talent.
