    Three Pats have the flu. Do you believe it or is BB just giving some people some time to heal?

    I think he's resting a couple of players. I think Troy Brown has the "Player of the Game" flu. Smart move by BB as the Pats probably have a game plan for the Colts pretty much set after facing them 6 times in the last 5 years.

    Yikes! I hope I don't get it. I'll start wearing a surgical mask around like people do in Japan. ;)

    I thought I saw a pic recently (in the news) that had people in Japan wearing masks waiting to get on a subway...I could be wrong.

    Nice! I'm up here in Mass. I wouldn't mind being down there this week. It's like 16 degrees out today. Keep on keepin' on!

    Its common for Japanese to wear a mask even if they just have a common cold. Its really a courtesy to prevent others from getting sick.

    See, this makes my original point. I still think BB rested these guys for a reason.

    Well, the net-net is that everyone is back at practice. Remember, Brady had a 100+ fever the night before the AFCCG in '04 and he lit Pitt up! :rocker:

    Are you sure that wearing a surgical mask is classy? After all, we wouldn't want to offend Mr. Tomlinson, would we?
