ECM issues?

hello guys, i have a question for you. Has anyone heard of the ecm going bad on these trucks? i have a 2003 6.0 f250. she is bone stock. i ordered an edge cts to monitor eot and ect. well, it was a pain in the butt to get the edge to link to the truck. for about a month the monitor wouldn't come on most of the time when the truck was started, had to unplug it and replug it. when i did try to program the truck, it would go crazy! last week it started throwing a bunch of codes for the injectors. i cleared the codes and took batteries loose overnight. the injector codes quit. now i am getting p2138, p 2139, p2140 codes. it idles a little off, but the wierd thing is going down the road it will start bucking, and if you dont floor it, it will loose the input from the accelerator pedal completely. i have to stop, shut the truck down, restart and it will pick signal up again. anyone have a clue what is going on? Or am i on the right track thinking the ecm is the culprit?

thanks in advance for the help
