The Giants began practicing on Wednesday for Sunday's NFC Championship Game in San Francisco, and did so without quarterback Eli Manning, who was, according to our Giants Rapid Reporter Alex Raskin, limited at practice and then sent home with a stomach illness.

Fortunately for Manning, it doesn't appear to be something that will affect him throughout the week and is instead an illness of the 24-hour variety.

Tom Coughlin is sounded relatively optimistic when discussing the issue.

"Hopefully it's a 24-hour deal and he'll be better tomorrow," Coughlin said via Raskin.

Sending Manning home is a smart move on Coughlin's part, because there's simply no reason to risk him passing the virus/bug/whatever on to the other members of the Giants.

Since someone brought up the eagles, the only thing I could imagine was Andy Reid's face when he heard the back-up qb cll it a dream team.  It was a a nightmare alright. You have a starting qb that can only play 13 games a year. You had Mcnabb forever and never game him receivers to work with. Philly will always find a way to suck - the city has no karma and isn't as nice as Cleveland.

I haven't read a single post by the eagle posters. The fact of the matter is Eli is a beast.....Let everyone else rank them where they want guy knows how to play football. Friggin warrior always plays, never makes exuses (ref i'm getting hit late), and just wins. Honestly it must friggin suck to be an Eagle fan right about now. Their team is a mess they all want to get rid of their coach whos not leaving. Their back to having QB issues and they all know it wether they want to admit it or not. The Giants have one thing the Eagles dont heart. They could have made excuses all season. Injuries, schdule you name it. But look at us now NFC championship game. 
Even the Cowboys and the Redskins have something to fall back on past championships. Good luck next year with your Dream Team... Oh yeah the Giants will just be getting back their best DB..... I was done in September when Eagle520 or somthing like that was telling me that Desean was a top 10 wr and Nicks wasn't i'm over having any type of intellegent conversation with them....

FAT WHITE CHICK just got out of jail on bail for beating up a Ranger fan and is making the most of his time before he goes back to his life's destiny of prison. Typical low life Philly degenerate.
