Ex-Ram Faulk feels 'cheated' by loss
January, 30, 2013
Speaking to CSNNE.com from the Super Bowl in New Orleans, former Rams running back Marshall Faulk said he’s still upset by the Rams loss to the Patriots in Super Bowl XXXVI, specifically allegations that the Pats had videotaped the Rams’ walkthrough prior to the game.
"Am I over the loss? Yeah, I'm over the loss,” Faulk said to Tom Curran. “But I'll never be over being cheated out of the Super Bowl. That's a different story. I can understand losing a Super Bowl, that's fine ... But how things happened and what took place. Obviously, the commissioner gets to handle things how he wants to handle them but if they wanted us to shut up about what happened, show us the tapes. Don't burn 'em."
Faulk said he thought the Patriots seemed to have some knowledge of what the Rams were going to do on offense.
"I understand Bill (Belichick) is a great coach," Faulk said. "But No. 13 (Kurt Warner) will tell you. Mike Martz will tell you. We had some plays in the red zone that we hadn't ran. I think we got to fourth down -- we ran three plays that we hadn't ran, that Mike drew up for that game -- Bill's a helluva coach .... we hadn't ran them the whole year (and the Patriots were ready for them)."
