I think Hendrick is putting so much into trying to get the"Never was" boy a win that it's affecting the performance of his other teams.
They're so consumed with trying to avoid the wrath of the Junior army that they have lost site of the game plan that worked trying to pacify the red headed step child.
Jooniebooger will be the demise of HMS as he was at DEI.

We will wait and see on that one.
The demise of his dad company and all the bad engine's tossed at him could be why he left.Jr can't help it that Steve missed his mark this week.Jimmie had a good run looks like his game plan worked.....Now that Jr has left Oh boy the DEI group should be leading this rat race is that what your trying to say......

LMAO! You must have studied at the Debi does posting school are you her brother by any chance? They told Jimmie and Jeff to stay behind Jr all year and let him win. I can see chad Knaus kicking back and wanting to take it easy for awhile yea right. Just keep wearing your tin foil hat and you'll be just fine my friend. Still LMAO thanks for the smile this morning you made my day!

I'm quite sure that HMR is focusing all teams. Not just Jr's. He's a business man with sponsors to keep happy.
JJ seems to have gotten his car dialed in well yesterday. JG just had a bout of bad luck. Maybe they tried something new?.
You shouldn't be spouting non existent theories.
Have a great day!

Yes Rick is a great businessman, hence signing Jr. He knew how much he would gain via souvenir sales. He also stated that at the same time he was on a tight schedule to get Jr a win or face the wrath of RED. Everyone in the sport knew he was in a no-win situation; Jr wins and according to the fans it will be all Jr,... Jr continues to not win and it's the fault of HMS.
But I thank you for your civilized, intelligent reply.

When Jr had junk, people claimed he was whining, so what is this from JG fans? Not Jr's fault people, not even Jeff's fault, get over it.

Are you saying that you think the Golden Children (JJ and JG) and all of their team members are laying down and not racing or not giving it their all so that Junior might get a win and that they are doing so at the direction of Rick Hendrick? I just want to be clear on what you are saying.

I agree.

The Hendrick team is strong. The rest of the teams have caught up with them, that's all. HMR will do some tweaking and they'll be back on top. 7 races in, way too early to write them off.

Not at all, although they have gone out of their way to push him to the front on occasion, I'm saying that there is a push and focus from the whole organization to get him some checkers. When you focus resources in one area the others are certain to somewhat fall behind.
They need to concentrate on racing rather than one driver, but there is a lot of pressure to get that driver a win and because it hasn't come as easy as everyone expected it's hurting the entire teams performance.

They are not just focusing on one driver, why would HMR sacrifice all he has built up for one driver to win? Good grief!
