Marooned Giants must now spend night in Appleton, Wisc.

Players often say that the worst part of a bad road loss is the long flight back home. Well, the Giants have found an even less-palatable option.

Because of the blizzard back home, they’ll spend at least Sunday night and part of the day Monday in Appleton, Wisc, a suburb about 20 miles south of Green Bay. It’s the hotel where they stayed on Saturday night to prepare for the game.

“It’s a disaster scenario being stuck here after a loss,” Barry Cofield said, adding that it will press their professionalism to be able to withstand the second major travel glitch the team has encountered this month. Two weeks ago they spent a day in Kansas City before being diverted to Detroit to face the Vikings.

“Depressing,” Kevin Boss said of being stranded in Wisconsin. “Going to bed would be a lot easier with a win … Most of the time you want to go home to your family and lick your wounds. But you’re stuck here by yourself. It’s not going to be the greatest time.”
