Foote is only able to get to the QB quickly because Timmons isn't being used effectively. Sure, Foote is playing decently right now, but if Timmons had a younger and quicker LB to play inside with he'd be unstoppable.
He's only effective because Timmons and Woodley are getting all the attention.
edit - I like McFadden and I think he has a high ceiling. I was a little upset when he wasn't signed to the 53 originally, but I guess better late than never.
