Nothing relieves the gloom like a Harlan Huckleby reference!

Info on Quarless (currently the top receiving TE until/unless Finley recovers) is incorrect. He may not have been targeted much before Finley's injury, but in the Washington game he caught 4 of 6 targets for 51 yards, including the 21 yarder that set up Crosby's FG doink at the end.

He wouldn't be my first option as a fantasy TE, but you could do worse, unless Flynn has to play, in which case I'd naturally skip him.

Also, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel is just now reporting that Finley's injury is more severe than originally thought and may require 8-10 weeks, which would probably mean ending his season by putting him on IR. Damn.

Seems like a bad year for injuries. Any stats on whether this year is the worst for injuries in the first 5 weeks?

The SI Curse went double-barreled this past week. SI went with two covers: one with Rodgers (concussion) and one with David Price (two losses in ALCS division round, including deciding Game 5.)

This is a "last-stitch" attempt at a decent article.
