    This seems a little concerning to me

    It used to be that opposing teams thought they saw a chink in the Patriots armor in one particular area and tried to beat them where they thought the Patriots was allegedly vulnerable only to be fooled later when they played them but now we have leaders like Kevin Faulk saying the team is vulnerable.

    Maybe its me but to me that sounds like at least Kevin is lacking a bit of confidence in his team in regards to winning...players who say thier team is vulnerable in a media quote are either trying to BS the media or really feels that way.

    If there are others who feel the same way on the team that this team is vulnerable and could be beaten, then how will the team get the confidence to go into the playoffs?.

    To me, a team going into the playoffs better have the whole team with 100% confidence they can get to where they want to go or you will be done quickly.

    I wonder how many players on this team doubt that and think they are vulnerable? - We need some swagger and a little c0ckyness instilled very soon or the team goes one and done.

    It's player speak. I think he didn't want to sound like the over-confident Steelers do every year saying they are unbeatable. Then when they lose in the playoffs the Steelers claim "The best team didn't win".

    I think he was just stating the obvious. They say they need to look in the mirror, and play better. What do they see in the mirror ? A team that can't win on the road. Until they do that, they are vulnerable indeed.

    I still have never heard the "V" word used in NE in this decade...and that was even in subpar years like 02,05 & 06.

    It worries me.:eek:

    I am hoping for a 100% confident team in January with every player playing like its thier last day on earth...

    Can it be done? yes
    Will it be done?...to be continued...

    Re: Your opinion of Kevin Faulk saying the Patriots are vulverable

    Every team has its vulnerability. That is a glimpse at the obvious. The issue for opponents is to find the vulnerable spot and have the ability to exploit it. #33 stating that to the media isn't like handing over our playbook and our exact injuries to the opponent. It could be a subtle call out to his teammates that the team is vulnerable and it has to work harder to minimize that.

    If "vulverable" means, able to be beaten by the "vulva" they I would tend to agree.

    He's just saying that no one is perfect. Every team has a weakness to work on

    Re: Your opinion of Kevin Faulk saying the Patriots are vulverable

    In Dec 2005, the Steelers lost 3 in a row to go to 7-5. After the Cincy loss, a few of the players started talking about the Steelers being the worst team in the league.

    This caused some commotion until the center pointed out they were the only team on a 3 game losing streak.

    They focused and won SB XL.

    Don't get caught up in every little thing.

    This team has the ability to get it done.

    It's up to them to focus and get it done.

    It may or may not happen.

    The way they've played this season should tell you they are vulnerable. This shouldn't be a shocker.

    THe vulnerable comment is a good one, everybody on this team needs to step it up, starting with BB all the way done to the BallBoy. It would be better if we were playing better but we aren't.

    Miami scares me right now, they just destroyed Jacksonville, then a week later Jacksonville stays right with the Colts. I bet those Miami players are playing with confidence/attitude.

    The Pats are basically in the playing for their lives right now. You earn the confidence when you win, alot.

    Faulk is simply trying to score with chicks by playing the oh so metrosexual 'vulnerable' card. Fortunately, his man card can be returned by making his typical clutch 3rd down plays Sunday.

    This team needs to execute. That's how you win games, not with confidence or swagger. Faulk is speaking the truth; they are a vulnerable team. How can you improve your weaknesses if you won't acknowledge that you have them? I'm glad he stepped up and said something. This team needs to look at itself and find a way to do what they have to do.
