    He isn't the fastest back or the most physically talented but dude just may have the biggest heart in the league. He almost single handedly kept the Patriots in the game with his never say die attitude and gritty play. One of the guys that makes the Patriots, and the NFL, what they are. One of my favorite players of all time.

    Agreed!
    I really liked watching when the cameras caught Faulk yelling at and cajoling the entire offense!

    Extremely impressed with his leadership today. Also impressed when he suffered what looked like a separated shoulder and ran back into the huddle with his arm just dangling at his side. Tough as nails. Kevin Faulk is one of my all-time favorite Patriots.

    amen- I didn't think I could like Faulk any more than I do, but he and Edelman singlehandedly reminded me why I invest myself in these teams every year. Gotta respect the guys that show up even when nobody else does.

    I'm wondering the same thing. He has a lot of miles on him. Can't praise him enough for all of his contributions to the team.

    He is my favorite all-time Patriot. I previously had him, Brady, Bruschi, and McGinest all kinda stuck up there in no particular order, but the heart that he showed today, in what was obviously a lost cause, put him ahead of them all in my book.

    Absolutely. Every time the Pats have laid an egg this year, he's always shown up to play. Here's hoping for at least another year or two.

    I think he hit his funny bone and his arm went dead for a while. A few players showed real heart. Just not enough including Brady who I think has seen his best days behind him.

    I was just about to start a "Kevin Faulk Appreciation Thread", so you k now I agree with you. He's the consumate professional. All the guy wants to do is win. He's amazing.

    He's been around the block, but he doesn't actually have as many miles as you'd think. LaDainian Tomlinson had about as many carries in 2004 and 2005 as Faulk's had in his entire career.

    If there were more Kevin Faulk's on this team, they would win the Super Bowl every year. My all time favorite Patriot!

    Agreed. And it's all about team with him. You know he'd give his right arm for the team, heck, it looked that way when he was trying to stay in the game with his arm just hanging there!

    same, I was pissed during this point but I said calmly "Faulk, get off the damn field if your shoulder is out"
