    End of Season desperation

    Injuries have plagued my teams yet again, but in one league I find myself at 7-4 and with the most points in my division.

    My Roster Is:

    QB: Rodgers, Luck
    RB: D. Brown, V.Ballard, Fred Jackson, Andre Brown, Ingram
    WR: Green, Steve Johnson, Randall Cobb, E.Sanders, G.Jennings & Garcon
    TE: Chandler, Meyers
    DEF: SF
    K: Bryant

    In a move to try and lock down a solid Flex starter I traded Luck for Sidney Rice. Good Move?
    I remember that one fateful day when Coach took me aside. I knew what was coming. "You don't have to tell me," I said. "I'm off the team, aren't I?"
    "Well," said Coach, "you never were really ON the team. You made that uniform you're wearing out of rags and towels, and your helmet is a toy space helmet.
    You show up at practice and then either steal the ball and make us chase you to get it back, or you try to tackle people at inappropriate times."
    It was all
    true what he was saying. And yet, I thought something is brewing inside the head of this Coach.
    He sees something in me, some kind of raw talent that he can
    mold. But that's when I felt the handcuffs go on.

    No one was hurting because of all the QB injuries? I think you panicked

    There was only one other team in need of a QB and they wouldn't deal.

    I think you needed a RB more than a WR.... search your waivers for Hillman, Beanie Wells, J. Stewart, or maybe Mendenhall.... they could fail but they could finish strong as well

    I agree your RB situation is ugly. I think you did worse in the trade but being Luck would ever see the field with your current squad getting someone who might start is better than keeping someone who will never start.
