Patriots running back Kevin Faulk has a decision to make. He has to decide whether he wants to come back for yet another NFL season or just walk away from playing the game he so dearly loves. It's clear that Faulk is pretty strongly thinking about retiring, but it's also clear that he's not ready to commit one way or another just yet. The Boston Globe's Shalise Manza Young sat down with the running back for an exclusive NESN Daily interview, and Faulk talked about his past while looking ahead to his future. If Faulk does walk away, it will...

New England Patriots: Most Pressing Offseason Needs

A 13-3 regular season record, home-field advantage through the AFC Playoffs and an appearance in Super Bowl XLVI makes the 2011 season look on the surface like a big success for the New England Patriots, but the Super Bowl loss to the New York Giants, and other times during the season, showed the team has some major shortcomings that need to be addressed before too long.

Pats by position: The offensive line

   With the Patriots season coming to an end on Sunday, it's time to take a look back at the team and break down their performance by position.

Patriots coach Bill Belichick plays Pebble Beach, gets Bama-style draft advice

Patriots coach Bill Belichick spent yesterday playing Pebble Beach as part of a pro-am, partnering with old buddy Nick Saban from Alabama. Word was Belichick shot in the 90s.
