  1. So my one sister, andrea, was driving on the entrance ramp to route 18 at exit 8. She lost control of her car, hit one curb bounced over to the other one and ran right up over it. Turns out she has 3 flat tires from that...plus who knows what else...she will find out tomorrow. Thank God she is safe though.

    My other sister, Johanna, left work early to go pick her up from the scene since her was getting towed. On Johanna's way to pick her up, she was on the circles where Rt. 33 and Rt. 34 are (for those of you central jerseyans) and some lady smashed into the side of her. Passenger door and fender are shot...alignment is out of whack...gonna be a pricey one. Thank God she wasn't hurt either.

    Is this a twin thing?

    Man...so thankful these weren't serious.

  2. Depends what it's doing. If it is locking up it will keep squeezing the rotor after you release and would continue grinding. That will wear the pads down pretty quick, so that's pretty possible it would start grinding and it will keep doing it after you let off the pedal.

    Thanks..I appreciate your help.

    I'll update tomorrow after I get the diagnosis.

    Thanks again! Hope this doesn't cost too much money...

  3. I have a 2001 VW Jetta Wolfsburg 1.8T

    Got the brakes replaced 1 year ago exactly. At that time the car had 106k miles on it.

    For the rear, this is what got replaced: Rear Brake Pads, Rear Rotors, Right Rear Caliper.

    Now I have 126k miles on it, 18k more than last January.

    Yesterday I started hearing a grinding noise out of my rear brakes. Once in a while it will not grind. Strange.

    I know that 18k miles is not enough time to wear the brakes down.

    I checked out the brake pads and they don't seem to be paper thin. They aren't as thick as a new one would be though.

    Any thoughts on this? I am going to bring it to my mechanic tomorrow morning. Am I able to drive on it tonight and tomorrow morning?

    Thanks car gurus. Help is appreciated!

  4. Who even knows if I am spelling these names right...

    personally, my first choice is Billick...

    this is a guy who has had success with some of the worst QBs in the NFL and he would be a perfect fit....

    He would come in here and have no problem with either Favre or a young QB.

    What is this boards thoughts on Billick?


  5. A source told ESPN senior NFL analyst Chris Mortensen that although Cowher told the Browns he is not interested in their job, he has not ruled out a return to coaching somewhere in 2009. The source also said Cowher could still listen to opportunities to coach elsewhere next season.

    Please Jets...please...get Cowher.
