It's too soon to say whether the Marshall Faulk highlight montage the St. Louis Rams ran at the finish of their home finale was a going-away tribute to the running back. Faulk, a former NFL MVP who has been used sparingly this year behind Steven Jackson, said he hasn't decided if he wants to keep playing. Earlier this year he agreed to a pay cut in a restructured contract with a new four-year deal. After the Rams (5-10) were swept by the 49ers for the first time since 1998 in a 24-20 loss on Saturday, Faulk said it wasn't the right time to discuss his future. "I've been playing football for a long time and it's something I love doing," he said. "So to just give you a quick answer after a hard loss to a division opponent wouldn't even be right." Then again, he also noted, that it might not be his call. "You have to understand that although it's a game and it's my career and it's my life and it provides a living for me and my family, it's a business to the people who own it," Faulk said. "And they have to run it. "There comes a time when they have to make decisions, business decisions," he said.
