He is still good. Just not as good as he use to be. 2010 Zero wins says it all.

Yeah, he & 6 others in the top 12 are winless. What else do you have?

carl edwards has one win in 2010, and it was in a nationwide race at road america, does that mean he isnt as good as he used to be? or does it really indicate that the rest of the competitors have improved?

Notice the one win since 2007. He has the best equipment in the sport and still cant find a way to win. I like Jeff but he just isnt what he used to be as far winning. Ist winning what its all about?

As far as Carl Edwards goes! let him drive for Hendrik in the 24 car and he will win. btw i dont like Carl at all.

Can barely make heads or tails of that mess, much less what he's done since '07. Granted he may not win like he used to but he's still competitive. He currently has more top fives than anyone this season, but he will have to chalk up some wins in order to have a chance at the grand prize with this format.

Yeah sorry about the messy post. Here is a link to the stats. You are right he is consistant, but can he win is the question.

As it stands right now if he doesn't win some races he'll be bumped to 4th when the chase begins. That would tick me off if I were in that position.

Right now he's second in the points, so obviously he's still competitive, he just hasn't found his way to victory lane yet.
