Bengals' Andy*Dalton misses practice with the flu - NFL - SI.com Great - Andy Dalton misses practice with the flu and the dumb Bengals are practicing outside in freezing weather. When the Pats played in Houston in the Superbowl they closed the roof, supposedly because it was supposed to rain (the sun was out during the game, but it did pour afterwards). It got so stuffy in there it was almost unbearable. I think I remember Pats players mentioning this problem when they've played in Houston. Shouldn't the Bengals be practicing indoors to simulate stuffy on-field conditions, and not subjecting their players to potential cold weather illness (before I am flamed I know the cold doesn't cause illness, but it does lower your resistance)? I have been so sure since the playoffs were announced that we will play the Bengals in the first round, but maybe not if they are dealing with a flu problem. GRRR!
