Best in the Decade

Michael Pittman.  Tiki Barber.  Marshall Faulk.  Brian Westbrook. LaDianian Tomlinson.  Kevin Faulk.

Kevin Faulk?

Yes.  With 105 total yards from scrimmage on the day (and throw in a touchdown run), Mr. Faulk joins this august list of double-threat backs from the last decade.  Today's output gives #33 over 2,000 rushing and 3,000 receiving yards in the decade, a feat equaled by the men on this list and only them.

It was a day of personal records.  Gostkowski set a career record for touchbacks.  Wes had the longest reception of his career, and extended his NFL-record streak of games with 6 or more receptions.  Cassel had the Patriots' only back-to-back 400 yard games ever.  Randy Moss had over 100 yards receiving, moving him into 2nd place for career 100 yard games behind only Jerry Rice.

Faulk's 2k/3k tally is a special indication of his all-around capacity, durability, reliability, and all-pro skill.  The names on that list are a who's who of fright-backs: the opposing side holds its collective breath whenever these guys get the ball.  We've said it all before, but it bears repeating:  This man is a player's player, a pro from helmet to spikes.  Congratulations, Kevin.

And keep 'em coming.
