    The Giants is some players have come down with flu-like symptoms. Cornerback Aaron Ross is the latest victim to fall under the weather. Linebacker Antonio Pierce was asked which players were sick, to which he responded with a fake cough and said jokingly, “I don’t know what you mean.”

    Coughlin said the team is taking precautionary measure to prevent further players from getting ill and he hoped it wouldn’t be a factor come Sunday.

    It's there turn to play a playoff game sick. We've already had that fun.

    Let's just hope the Pats are taking precautions as well. Lots of Airborne!

    Flu hitting Giants

    Just thinking about how dibilitating the flu was for the Pats in the AFCC last year, this is just another challenge that the Giants have to play through. This is looking more and more like a 2-3 TD win for the Pats.

    Glad we get out of Media Day before it starts to spread.

    Lucky for the Giants that the flu epidemic hit them 9 days before the game. Enough time to get well and regain strength, imo. I dont think illness will play any role at all, by game time.

    I dunno, some of them look like they are struggling still this week. If they continue to spread it to others on the team, it will still be around for the game.

    Re: Flu hitting Giants

    Good that the Giants have their excuse set up ahead of time.

    It kind of reminds me of when I play this one friend of mine in Madden, if I'm winning he'll stop trying somewhere through the 3rd quarter and then follow up my win by saying "whatever, I wasn't really trying."

    Whatever, we had the flu.

    I heard on WEEI this morning that one of their rookies with the flu barfed all over the place on plane this morning... that's a nice way to make sure all your teammates get that as well... don't think about using the bathroom or a barf bag... then close them in a pressurized tube at 30,000 feet for 5 hours!

    That being said, if its the same flu bug that just hit my family its a very short lived one... less than 24 hours of stomach cramps and barfing.
