    Up until a few years ago, Faulk seemed slow, mediocre and fumble prone. Now he seeks like a better runner than Dillon and has some of the best hands in the game (maybe the best for a RB). He has taken a huge step up the last few years.

    it was a very well written and informative article on things I never knew about Kevin. Puts what he does for a living in perspective but shows how it has been his way to cope with lots of obsticales that have come his way.

    If it were up to me during that draft, the Patriots would never have taken Kevin.

    That's why I'm a loser posting on this board and he's a vital part of the team that I love.

    When Kevin Faulk was injured, he was very much missed on 3rd down where he's an excellent blocker against the blitz or as a receiver he can go out and make those tough yards after the catch to get the first down.

    Now the Pat's are playing him more on 1st and 2nd down where he performed beyond expectations against Jacksonville. Faulk's biggest problem is the fumble and that's where Denver will be sure to focus. It's hard to tell if he doesn't have the upper body strength or he's just careless.

    However if he fumbles on Saturday it could be the difference between winning or losing the game.

    Actually Kevin is the sole remaining player from the Bobby Grier- Pete Carroll drafts.

    Another reason why Pete should stay at USC. Hell of a recruiter, but you don't recruit in the NFL.
