I just wanted to give everyone a heads up on the players I have because it's now clear to me that my team, scratch that, I
am cursed. I am starting to think that "The Cart" must be one of the guys on my roster because he's seen as much time on the field as most of my players. I was even planning a "Trade McNabb Now!" post last week, but got sidetracked and didn't do it & that is 100% true.
Here are my seriously injured players:
Here are my players who now have or who have had or who are constantly battling injuries:
Here are my players that are not injured but are sure to be soon because I am cursed. As an added benefit of these injuries you can count on them going out very early in the game before they have any real points.
At this pont this post is just going to turn into a complete cry/whine-fest.
I would rather just have a team that sucks from the start so I don't get my hopes up just to be squashed as the season get closer to the end. Last year I was in a great spot for at least third in total points ($100.) Even though both of my top 2 WR (Roy Williams, A. Johnson) had went down early with injuries I still had 3 good RB's to start - Edge, DD, and Jordan. Well DD went w/ injuries (and had me staring him every other week - always when he didn't play), Edge sat most of the last 4 games or so, and Jordan did nothing the last 5 or 6 weeks. I came in fourth ($0) in total points and lost the 1st game in the playoffs.
I should have known it would be the same this year when I was "lucky" enough to "steal" Portis w/ the 6th overall pick only to see him get injured live, before our draft was even over. Hell, even my kicker, Kaeding, is driving me nuts since suddenly the Chargers do nothing but score TD's. To add insult to injury, unlike most other commish's in Sportsline, mine wouldn't give me McNabb's TD from last week. He didn't even respond to my e-mail.
From now on I'm going to start praying that LT goes down for the year w/ an injury. I don't care if that's unsportsmanlike. I might as well add LJ and mabye even Tiki and Westy to that list. I'm sick of it!
