Faulk's brilliant mind took him to Hall of Fame

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Marshall Faulk just saw things a little differently.

When he was in the backfield with rookie quarterback Peyton Manning, he lined up deeper so he could read the defenses. When he was starring in the Greatest Show on Turf, he made adjustments on the fly.

On Saturday, the former Colts and Rams running back with one Super Bowl title and an MVP Award will be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

The numbers speak for themselves. Faulk finished his career with 12,279 yards rushing, 19,154 total yards and 136 touchdowns. But it's not the accolades that set Faulk apart from other great backs. Two-time MVP Kurt Warner contends it was the way he dissected the game and changed it.
