    Here's a lame post/question, but something I've noticed and have thought about.

    Whenever I see Kevin Faulk tackled, or involved in a play, he's always slapping the defender(s) on the helmet and seems totally agreeable to everyone. He just seems like a nice guy and good spor, in general, albeit extremely competitive. I've never seen him scrapping with anyone, but at the same time he's no puss. Because of that, I've always thought of him as the "coolest" Pat. You know, the guy you'd like to be involved in a pick up game with you (playing for either team), and then go have beers with.

    I guess I'm just wondering if anyone else has noticed this, or if someone has conflicting thoughts.

    I noticed. It's because he's small, and doesn't want to tick anybody off. :)

    Then Belichick should buy whatever he's using for all of his players.

    Faulk is cool,no doubt,and has maintained a surprising high level of play over 10-11 yrs....looks like he's done for this year,too bad.

    Anybody ever gone to his charity softball tournament? That would be a clue -- did the gladhanding seem to come naturally to him?

    (Example of the opposite: Seeing Rajon Rondo do promotions is painful -- it's a good thing that is lead product is a caffeinated drink meant to help you be high-strung.)

    Faulk does seems like a chill guy.

    I can picture him and his buddies hanging around the crib, listening to Cypress Hill, the movie Friday playing on the TV, and him and his buddies discussing if we are alone in the universe.

    KFaulk was always unassuming, never trying to cast a spotlight on his self. He always wanted to do what was best for the team. He is the ultimate Patriot.

    I met him in the airport a couple years ago, nice guy. Not to Pat myself on the back but he was standing amongst approximately 75 people at the baggage claim and nobody recognized him but me. My son who was wearing his Patriots at the time was with me. We went up and asked for an autograph to which he was very obliging. And in true KFaulk unassuming style, he asked to do it off to the side as to not to draw attention to himself.

    Get well Kevin. Hope to see you back next year.

    Added the bolded part because, well, I like the bolded part, too.

    If I believed in god, I would be praying to him now to allow Faulk's injury to be only a partial tear that could heal in 6-8 weeks, so he could be ready for the POs.
