INDIANAPOLIS (CBS) – This will most likely be Kevin Faulk’s last year with the Patriots and possibly his final year playing football.
He is a future Patriots Hall of Famer, a member of all the Super Bowl teams and fixture in that locker room.
He was rehabbing an injury in the off season when coach Belichick called him and told him to be ready.
Kevin came back and even though he hasn’t played as much as he would have liked, pouting is not his thing.
When asked about the difference in this team, compared to the one in 2007, he said that was more of a veteran squad.
WBZ-TV’s Levan Reid reports:
This team is young and talented.
He also thinks this is exactly why you come back, to play for a title.
GRONK THE STAR
Usually a Patriots Super Bowl Media Day means Tom Brady is the star, but today the popularity vote went to Rob Gronkowski.
Walking to his booth without a walking boot on his left ankle was the story.
He said he’s getting better everyday and he plans on being out there for the big game.
When he was told his dad gave up the information about his high ankle sprain injury, he told reporters to just call his dad and he’ll talk.
Rob was smiling and taking it all in like a little kid.
But everyone knows, when he hits the field, he’s a big kid and that’s what the Pats are looking for on Sunday.
The next thing everyone will pay attention to are the practice reports and they will come out as the week rolls on.
OCHO AND PRIME TIME
Chad Ochocinco and Deion Sanders have a very special relationship.
Deion calls Chad his little man and has admitted that he is on Team Ocho.
The two spoke at Media Day Tuesday and even though Chad would love to be a star at this event, he says he understands the team could not have gotten here without him.
He told Deion this has been a humbling experience and he also said he wants to come back next season.
BEFORE THE MEDIA DAY BLITZ
Day 3 here in Indy and this will be very big.
It’s Super Bowl Media Day and for the first time in NFL history, the fans will take part.
However, they are not allowed on the field. They have to stay in the third row of the stadium and up.
With that said, the more the merrier.
I love the fact this has become fan-friendly.
Today will be interesting.
We expect to hear from the usual cast of characters. But also, this will be the first time we all see Rob Gronkowski up close since his injury and we could possibly hear from Chad Ochocinco for the first time this season.
Right now I am camped out by Gronkowski’s podium.
