    What's up fellas,

    As most of you know I'm currently 0-6 this season with the Vikes, by far my worst start since I've been in TMFL. I have been plagued with injuries every week so far this season, not just any injuries, major injuries. Every week a Star player has been hurt.

    AP has been hurt twice and has only played in one game. Percy Harvin is just coming back from a 5 week injury. Dominic Hixon is out for the season, he had an 8 week injury so I placed him on IR. My Rookie CB Devin Brown is now out for 5 weeks. And if I'm not mistaken Christian Ponder has only played in 3 games or so. This is just to name a few, there's more.

    With all that being said I still enjoy playing in this league, the competition is stiff and it really shows when your team is beat up. This season I actually feel like a GM because of all the roster moves I've had to make through waiver claims damn near each week. I think ratings matter more in M13 than some people would think. Still not to the level of where I want it to be, but I can tell they at least make a difference in certain areas.

    For any of you that may be experiencing a similar situation please share your misery.

    Sim

    While not as many injuries as you, I had both Frank Gore and Carlos Rogers go down last game for 6 and 7 weeks. Will be interesting to see if Hunter and James can carry the load since Gore was the only offense I've had this season.

    Yeah, losing Frank Gore for that long sucks big time.

    We are 2-6 and our defense leaves the field before the ball is snapped. I've fumbled every first half of this season. We drop first down catches on third and short. We drop interceptions that lead to more points for the other team. We get penalties that extend drives. We are thew Raiders. We rather be Marshall. :(

    Its not been injuries so much in Cincy as much as poor luck and an awful offense.

    I have been outscored 75-9 my last two games (Denver, Cleveland). With at least 8 turnovers. Some are obvious int's but others are awful fumbles.

    Everyone on my team is on a cold streak and I can't seem to bring them out of it.

    I just suck also, can't really even blame it on injuries. Demarco Murray is out, but he wasn't very good for me when he was in the game anyway. It's good to know I can be the best at something though, the best at being the worst in the league!!

    It's a tough learning environment when you are new. You'll get better.

    Doesn't mean you suck, good competition in this league. You need your playmakers, if not ratings along with stiff competition will cause you to lose. I've beat plenty of people online, even the cheesers, so just because you lose here doesn't mean you suck. Hang in there, that's what I'm doing , LMAO.

    Yeah, those streaks will kill you too. I kinda like that, if a guy is cold he's off, that's real.

    So many good coaches, you MUST win the turnover battle to stay above water. Injuries really hurt for sure, our secondary was banged up last year and we really felt that.

    See Houston last season. By week seven, both safeties, Watt, 4 LB, Schaub, Foster, and Andre Johnson were all hurt.

    Wouldn't say this is my worst start but definitely a forgettable one
