he will undergo another knee operation next week sidelining him for the year and basically making the decision for him on his pending retirement.

just shy of 20,000 yards from scrimmage, with an amazing 700+ receptions and 130+ total td's, he should be a definite 1st ballot hall of famer.

Loved watching him play. Class act on and off the field. But I think it's time that he hangs'em up.

I agree that he has been the complete footballer in his time at the Rams.

He would have had more rings if Martz had used him as the centrepiece of his offence instead of his own ego.

I'm really sad to see him end his career on yet another knee surgery. Marshall Faulk is the consummate player, teamer and person. In his prime, he was one of the most exciting backs to watch. I agree that he should be a 1 balloter.

He should go into the Hall ..but is FAR from a class act...I posted a couple of months ago how he walked out to the bus while a bunch of kids (including my son) were asking for his autograph..he told them that he wasnt Marshall Faulk and that "marshall" was still in the locker room....then he got on the bus..stuck his head out the window and laughed at the confused kids....
My son still hates him...but that doesnt take away from his on-field accomplishments...there was a time where he could see the field better thatn any back I had personally witnessed..since Walter P.

NMdont forget his time with the colts. his 2nd most productive season yardage wise was his final year with the colts in 98. 1300 yds rushing plus 900 yds rec. he did excellent on a pretty much horrible team, with a young developing manning.

i still kick myself for skipping sdsu's game at unm while i was there. he rushed for like 300 yds and 5 td's. i was probably out partying :dang: (and tickets were free for students :dang: )

True. Very true.

The Colts were a horrible team for a long time, especially when they were in the AFC East - so it goes to show that they have come a long way....just not ALL the way.

Manning has had some very nice RB's to complement him over the years.

NMyes. makes me jealous jerome never had some really nice qb's to compliment him during his prime.

interresting to think how the colts wouldve been if they never let faulk go for james. all in all it was a good trade only in that it didnt backfire on them. until james injury it was a toss up between them 2 for the #1 pick in most fantasy drafts fo a few years.

faulk and sanders have to be 2 of my favorite non steelers to watch though.
