Re: Stevenson Sylvester
That was the entire point of bringing Foote back, so that he would start for a year or two while they acquired Farrior's long-term replacement. This is pretty much what everybody has been saying since he was re-signed.
I think that the ILB rotation hurt both Foot and Farrior last year. Foote played very well in 2010, but less-so overall last year. I think that he may play better overall as a full-time starter, especially with more stability around him, particularly amongst the linebackers, which was certainly not the case last year.
