Look, now that TEs are just freakish large rvcrs, Foote is a liability in coverage. That is why we have Spence. He was supposed to learn the position and we would hopefully start him next season which would let Timmons further increase his presence in the backfield as Spence is faster for coverage. Unfortunately Spence was hurt, so pray for a full recovery. I think Foote was just a 1-2 season stopgap. He is fine for the NFL 5 yrs ago but LBs are required to be DBs now, and its not Footes forte. Cut him some slack as I believe the brass thought Spence would be more on passing downs spelling Foote. As much crap as Lebeau gets, he is obviously adjusting his Def to the new NFL (as shown by our pass def ranking this and last year). We have a bright future, No rebuilding for us!
