    You've always hated him? To each their own, but are you insane?

    Ever since his fumble in the Green Bay game a few years back Kevin Faulk has been a consistent performer and offensive spark on this team. He's in a role that is awesome for his abilities and there's no doubt he's probably the best overall pickup of the Grier era (not counting the 96 draft because depending on who you believe that was or was not a Grier draft)

    How can you hate Kevin Faulk?

    Kevin Faulk is a productive player who plays hard and with great intensity and great attitude. Ya, once in a while he fumbles the ball, but I'm glad he's a Patriot. He's a great third down/change of pace back.

    Ouch. If true, I'd say it's 50-1 great play. I love the dude.

    Did he get back on the field after that play?

    Looked like he was hurt. I was hoping it was just the wind getting knocked out of him.

    He was back on the next offensive series and for the rest of the game. Judging by the way he landed, I'd say it was probably getting the wind knocked out and nothing more.

    Faulk is a special player, versatile and perfect on screens. Faulk fumbles a few times here and there but give me a break about bonehead plays, he usually makes very good plays. He is very underrated.

    Kevin Faulk has made so many huge third down plays it is amazing he doesn't get more attention than he does. Also, on that catch, it looked like he knocked every last ounce of air out of his body. Ouch!

    haha, didnt expect ppl to jump on me again as they did last yr when faulk got injured and i said i was happy that pass would be in instead

    my post here wasnt to say i hated faulk, it was to give him props for the catch, i was simply noting the fact that he impressed me even though im not a fan of his

    that was def his worst play of his career, just plain stupid, and you're right since then he has coughed up the ball a lot less
    one HUGE play though was the fumble in denver in last yrs playoff game, although i blame the coaching staff for that one-why the hell do you send faulk right up the gut like that

    Hate him? He's been a fine role player for us over the years! His versatility has been used on offense and special teams. Faulk is one of the three remaining Patriots from the pre-Belichick era (Troy Brown and Tedy Bruschi are the other two).

    That was a great catch.

    Good for Kevin. It's nice to see the media (as well as posters here, as I've already noted) finally notice him for more than a fumble. He's awesome when he's not putting the rock on the carpet. On of my favorite under the radar guys on the Pats.

    I love after a big hit from a defender he gets up and says "Nice Hit, good job!"

    I can't recall him ever dropping a ball on third down. If i remmeber correctly he made some HUGE clutch plays in either the Oakland snow bowl game and the first superbowl.

    Kevin Faulk has indeed made some bone headed plays. But he gives 100%, doesn't cause trouble, and is a consummate Patriot and a solid professional. He's the type of player that keeps the Patriots associated with an ethos of professionalism.
