    Re: Faulk's Early Retirement

    He probably should have retired in the offseason. He has not looked himself. its sad.  maybe this happened for a reason so that he will move on and the Patriots will move on.

    I'd say his career is over, but the guy has been surprising his whole career.

    Re: Faulk's Early Retirement

    When I learned today that it was his ACL, I thought, "retirement".  At 34, I just can't see him coming back as an NFL RB at 35 from a torn ACL.  Troy Brown couldn't pull it off. You know the Pats would offer him a position. 

    It's a drag that this had to happen to him in the second game of what was probably his last season. If it had to happen, fate could have been kinder by making it in his last game played.

    Thanks for many great plays, Mr. Faulk.  You remain one of my very favorite Pats players, going back as far as the '70s.

    Probably the best offensive Patriot of the 2000s, yes, even better than Brady.

    8. Faulk
    9. Patten
    10. Dillon
    11. *Vrabel* !

    I love Faulk too, but he is a 3rd down RB

    Re: Faulk's Early Retirement

    He has easily been the most consistant performer in the 2000's for the Patriots offensively. Brady is one of the top QB's in the game,but too qualify Faulk as a third down back would be wrong. He's carried the ball more than any other running back the Patriots have had this decade. He blocks better than any starting RB this decade! So don't fall for the baloney that he is just a third down back who catches a pass or two..As for his replacement it will be Sammy Morris.

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: Faulk's Early Retirement : Love Faulk, but let's not get carried away suggesting a third down back is better than one of the greatest QB's to ever play the position
    Posted by Encinitas[/QUOTE]

    Since Brady relied on him to get third down conversions, relied on him to block the free blitzer, relied on him to run the delay I would say he's the most important offensive Patriot of the decade. If not number 1, he's number 2. 

    Woodhead has huge shoes to fill.

    I wouldn't be so quick to count him out, people were also saying Welker wouldn't be back until next year and Faulk has that same type of competitive drive. If he wants to play again, he will.

    Fire O'Brien and make KF the new O coordinator.....he knows how the O used to be run.

    Three things.

    Thing 1 Welker may be back but he's no where near 100%
    Thing 2 Faulk's knees take a completely different kind of abuse than Welker's
    Thing 3 Faulk is a lot older than Welker especially since pro football career years are more like dog years than human ones

    Interesting that all those screaming about BB filling that roster spot with Woodhead instead of a D player have suddenly gone quiet.

    [QUOTE]He said today he is not retiring and i am disgusted by the people who said they want him to retire, he is 34 and has not even lost a step yet, he will now with this injury but for 34 he has taken little to no beating over his career and he will bounce back. What the he//is wrong with my fellow Pats fans this season this f*cking Kevin Faulk you are talking about.
    Posted by MVPkilla4life[/QUOTE]

    Well said MVP, and I don't understand where the idea that he "lost a step" came from. Faulk looked quicker then last year to me. Also he is far more then just a 3rd down back. He gets more snaps then any RB on our team and guess what they are not ALL on 3rd down.

    Killa...Would I like to see him come back strong? DEFINITELY! But lets face reality. The odds are against him both physically and roster management wise. Sheer will power can't overcome physical reality. Just ask Bobby Orr

    He'll be back.  Look at how fast the recovery time is now for those types of injuries.  He's a tough guy and I think its foolish to assume he's done.

    [QUOTE]Evil if this was Reggie Bush we were talking about I would understand cause he only does a few things well but Kevin Faulk could never run the ball for us again and he would still be crazy valuable to this offense. His blitz pick up and pass blocking alone make him one of the best 3rd down backs in the game today. He doesnt do any one thing great but he does EVERYTHING well.
    Posted by MVPkilla4life[/QUOTE]your right MVP....Faulk is only 34, that;s 29 in Brett Farve years, he can go another 30

    Farve loses more big games with bonehead plays than he wins and has for years

    Bottom line is no one including Faulk will really know how things will work out until next spring. One thing I'm sure of is that he will be at camp in 2011. Do you know what his contract status is?

    Hard to believe he lasted longer than that other Faulk
