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.
Larry Foote had 16 tackles in 2010, while not starting a game that season. But had 30 tackles in 5 starts in 2011.

I think most of us fans here know that he is an average LB, but not as good as he was 4 or 5 years ago. Not really thrilled with having an average to below average ILB starting this season, but that is what happens when you dont draft a decent successor.
