    I dont think Pats fans repect Kevin as much as they should. He was a big part of the win Vs. the Chargers. Who cares about his past of fummbling the ball, people makes. We all do. WE're not quick to get rid of Brady after throwing 3 ints in last game, but when kevin or any other players like watson fumble we are quick to die on them. Kevin is a big of our of this team, his explosivensess can single handedly change the pase of our ofense. He is fast, good at following blocks and reading defenses, and getting those all important 3rd down conversations. Kevin Faulk will have at least 5 big plays this week in indy......thats a promise. Lets give our hats off to Faulk he is defenenitly someone we need in this game.

    Behind Troy Brown, Kevin Faulk may be the most underrated Patriot of all time. A true team player who has taken to his role as 3rd down back and punt returner 9and kick returner). You gotta love a player like that. I'm hoping we can do it for our aging stars like Brown and Bruschi (and Faulk).

    I will admit, he did play fairly well in the last game, but count me in as a Kevin Faulk "hater".

    I can't stand him.

    Last years playoff game against the brokebacks didn't help his cause any either.

    I'm happy that he didn't have another brain fart and fumble it like he has done so many times.

    In fact, I'm all for him playing a great game.

    i would say Troy brown, and brandy didnt do to good of a job either, dont you think? Tommys INT, and Bowns muffed punt return. That lost the game, last year.

    hes been in the leauge for 8 yrs, over 600 Attemps, and 15 lost fumbles, to me thats not enough to hate someone. He is a big assett to our team, so if you dont like him then its just your loss.

    that's exactly what i was thinking.

    the last interception on our last drive was Kevin Faulk's fault...

    Maybe if he caught the ball instead of tipping it directly into the air, the pats might have won.

    Hate is a strong word, so I'll say I highly dislike him.

    It seems whenever he does screw it up... it's usually that particular play that cements the loss.

    I guess every team has that one player.

    Kevin Faulk is the Pats...

    Some times Brown can be stinky as well.

    I agree, he has such quick cuts, a perfect complement to our running game! A real team guy!

    1. You can't get to the Superbowl behind a guy who often makes good plays but will give away the game once in a while. It is not one-for-one. Giving away teh AFCCG with fumbles makes all those good plays in WC and Division playoff games meaningless.

    2. When you try to compare Watson drops and Brady INTS, or Faulk and Brady, you are just being goofy. Brady is essential to the team. Watson is not. Faulk is not.

    I like Faulk. But he scares the ever-living crap out of me whenever he touches the ball. I enjoy he runs/catches only on replay ('cause I know they turned out okay).

    Overall, he would have made a nice sixth or seventh round pickup. He was a waste as a second rounder IMO.

    Well since this is not the "BrokeBack Forum" may I just say I like him. He was the best runner against the chargers.

    I personally feel he is running his best since his mom passed away. He played with a heavy heart that year and injuries the year after. He has been strong all year.

    I think right now he is running better than the still somewhat injured Maroney - he is certainly hitting the hole harder than Maroney or Dillon. I expect to see him play alot tomorrow ... he deserves it.

    I don't "hate" Kevin Faulk but I worry about fumbles every time he touches the ball especially on punt returns.

    I expect to see a lot of Faulk too in the Colts game. I think he might be the best third down back in football. He also tied the game with that 2 point converstion in SD that really did give us the chance to win. I think the screen to Faulk is the pats best offense play. I just think people are to hard on him, and should appreciate how valuable he is to this team.

    Kevin is great. He can do many things, catch, run or return punts.

    And people outta shut the hell up about him fumbling. Dillon, Maroney, Watson, Caldwell, Brady. All of them fumbled more than Faulk this year.

    I've always been defending Faulk, even when the popular thing to do here was to rip him down. He is great.

    I think the Pats can do better than Faulk.

    All I do hope for, is if he plays... don't phuck it up.

    IIRC Faulk has fumbled in ONE playoff game over the entire course of the dynasty.

    I've seen it before it while it's on the high end it's not as bad as a lot of people make it out to be.

    He is so important to this offense. He does everything, and he does it well. He's come up big in so many situations. You don't have to appreciate the guy, but I sure do.

    ...like many people on this forum, I also have to cross my fingers when he gets the ball/is thrown to.

    I do hope that he does have a good game. I'm all for it. No disagreement there.

    I just get an uneasy stomach when he is around the ball.

    Bottom line.

    Uhh yes, you ought to.

    Here is ESPNs stats on his fumbles. 11 career fumbles. 8 of them lost.

    6 total regular season fumbles since 2001.

    Corey has fumbled 17 times since 2001.

    I am not hating on Corey because he is a great player and one of my favorite Pats. My point is, Corey is praised as someone who rarely fumbles. Faulk is always hated on because he fumbles a lot but he doesnt. So please just shut up.

    Kevin is a very valuable part of this team. He is a great player. Not a fantastic running back but he is great all around.

    Oh and here is something interesting on Faulk...

    He is tied for 3rd most receptions on the team this year with Troy at 43. Both behind Watson (49) and Caldwell (61).

    And better than that, he is just behind Troy Brown as the current Patriot with most career receptions. He has 276 career receptions.
