There's the 'Injury Bug'... sounds like you might have it.
In any case, I got myself hooked up with the patched version. Seems to be pretty functional so far... fingers crossed.
Check out my 2008 Draft:
#25: Kenny Phillips, SS
Trade Up (Our 1st 2nd rounder, a 7th, and an '09 4th): Jonathan Stewart, RB
Trade Up (Our 2nd 2nd rounder, 3rd and 5th in '09... a bit hosed, but was our Targeted Guy in an Area of Need and the team we traded with were very likely to grab him): Calais Campbell, RE (Fans loved it, up to 81 approval)
Trade Down (Our 3rd for Colts' 4th, 5th, and '09 4th)
#125: Timothy Hightower, HB
#155: Spencer Larson, MLB
#156: Kellen Davis, TE
#197: Jaymer Johnson, WR
#218: Tax McDray, DT
Over the offseason, we picked up Nnamdi Asomugha, though ended up letting Trufant walk. Slight improvement overall. Picked up Ben Noll, RG. Resigned Slave to the Businessman for 2yr. Traded Brian Russell to ATL for #2 and #7 picks, and replaced him by signing Erik Coleman for 5 years. Some other tweaks here and there. Looking for an RB in the draft, but signed Cedric Houston as Bust Insurance.
