    It's called a flu shot, Patriots Medical team!!!!!

    It's very cheap - - just line up the players and give it to them, please.

    At least we're not playing indoors this week ... where a certain maniacal GM has been know to pipe in faux crowd noise and turn up the thermostat.

    It's not always reliable, you know. Out of thousands of strains it guesses at like three or four based on what went around the prior year. In recent times it's guessed wrong and been completely useless.

    Not to mention, the timing of the shot is only just about this time of year, so it would have been hard to get it sooner and have it take any effect at this point.

    Being sick when getting the shot doesn't help either.

    Nope...sometimes you're just gonna get sick

    Still no Taylor? Maybe he will be ready by the 4th quarter of Game 16.

    Edit: Thought that was Outs, I'm glad its only a Questionable list.

    What the hell is wrong with Fred Taylor? I mean, I'd rather have Benny at this point, but still. There is no excuse for a TOE injury to take half the season...

    Flu? There is no influenza yet. They are just sick.

    Good point. My mom would always get "flu-like symptoms" after getting a shot.

    I've had turf toe on one foot, and that sucked. I can see why Taylor has been out a while.

    Turf toe is not a toe injury, its the ball of your foot. He also has it on both feet. Have you ever tried running without your feet? Its not very easy :rolleyes:

    If anyone in New England is sick, now would be a good time to make your way to the Colts hotel and practice riding the elevator,

    I have had two broken toes on one foot, and that took forever to heal. There's really nothing the doctors can do except give you meds and tell you to stay off it. It is an incredibly painful injury, because you really don't comprehend how much you use your toes. Weight shifting and balance when walking, or even moving slightly, with or without shoes, hurts like all get out. If there is any nerve or ligament damage accompanying it, then that just adds to the pain and healing time.

    Seriously, I agree completely that until you have had such an injury you just can't understand how such a seemingly little thing can be so disruptive.
