    Just saw on NFL Network, Faulk will announce he is officialy retiring on Monday in the NFL meetings. He is an analyst on the NFL Network currently.

    Re: Marshall Faulk officialy announces his retirement

    "After a long and illustrious career, I have decided to announce my retirement. I would like to thank all of you."

    Applause as he leaves the podium...Faulk stops for a moment, then returns to the microphone.

    "Also, the New England Patriots stole Superbowl 36."

    You're kidding, right?

    I suppose he's first ballot HOF. So, who took him out of SB36 more, the Patriots or Mike Martz?

    Hehe those were not his actual words I believe. :)

    Marshall Faulk had a stretch of offensive dominance that definitely makes him a HOFer in my book. Fun to play on Madden in his prime. Fortunately the Pats shut him down in the Superbowl. Thank you Willie!

    I'm kidding in the sense that the speech didn't happen, but I'm serious in the sense that he's said, ad nauseum, that the Pats stole the Superbowl. Also, he's a whiny pansy.

    Re: Marshall Faulk officialy announces his retirement

    Gotcha. If he means the Patriots stole the SB in the vein that the Pats "had no right winning it" because they were huge underdogs, OK, but I'd still call him a sore loser. In any other sense, he's completely wrong because we took it to them the whole game and clearly deserved to win.

    Great player and an annoying, whiny baby and a Patriots hater. So another words I hate his guts.



    Not really but sort of.
