    Is barely a playbook. Aside from Brady, this guy is our MVP. If he was healthy, we win that game.

    I can't believe I was such an idiot that in pre-season I thought Faulk was overpaid and that he was a product of our system. This guy IS our offense in the clutch & we cannot win without him.

    I posted a thread a few days ago called " i Love Kevin Faulk" where i talked about how important he is to our team, and we needed to be easier on him for his past mistakes of fumbling the ball. Faulk is an awesome player and wouldnt want him anywhere else but right here in Newengland. He is my MVP.

    Brady missed a couple of nice screen passes set up for him... Faulk is a big asset..

    you know what, your absolutely right...Sad but true.. Hopefully with a year under Maroneys Belt and another training camp/pre-season, he can come closer to maximizing on his abilities and potential...Someone recently posted about the I formation working really well..So I hope we keep Evans or make a run at another Larry Centers type of FB.. we need as many Versatile Blocking/Receiving Do it alls on offense..to really help pave the way for this kid...

    we need to start grooming the next kevin faulk aswell, but that can be had in the later rounds of the draft, possibly FA... Dominc Rhodes anyone?

    Perhaps not quite that critical since there was the odd win last season, but a special player nonetheless. This was where we missed Pass as a back-up, as much as I like Evans, Pass had better quickness for draws and some shiftiness in the hole.

    Is he FA or still under contract next season? Dillion don't have much in the Tank...Time for someone (other than Maroney) to put on the pants and lead the way..

    Pass is a UFA. I'm not sure if he'll be brought back or not, he starting to have hammy problems (2 years), it may depend on who is out there in FA or who they might like in the draft (Brian Leonard of Rutgers would be a nice young replacement).

    I wasn't that impressed with Walker's overall capabilities, I'd take a look at the N. Illinois kid playing in the Senior Bowl this weekend.

    Not enough has been written about his value ("you don't know what you have until it's gone").

    Depth-wise, Faulk was option #1 for the OC, followed by Pass, then Evans. Excercising the 3rd option changes the play calling and netted a far different result. Just play the hand you're dealt I suppose...but it really hurt the creative options of both Brady and the OC. This offense has to be able to change gears from power to quicks from play to play. Evans for Faulk offers no quicks.

    We already have a Larry Centers type FB on the roster. He spent a portion of his rookie year on IR. Garret Mills is the next Larry Centers and was drafted to be exactly that.

    Once again, BB is a step ahead...

    please don't hijack threads. there is just no need for it. everyone here knows how you feel, you do not need to keep reminding us. it isn't getting anything accomplished.
