I agree with you.

Is Foote having a "2004 James Farrior" type of season? NO.

Is Foote having a "2009 Lawrence Timmons" type of season? NO.

Is he playing pretty well for a guy who is 32 and filling in at a position that has been ignored in the recent drafts? YES.

I think that people are jumping on Foote, when he is not only the best option, he is the only option on the roster. There is not really a young "awesome" talented ILB that has been drafted since... well... since Timmons.

Spence?... he showed promise, but he went down.

Sly?... eh... regardless, he went down, as well.

As in: what other option is there for the Steelers??? Foote is the BAP... and he has done well, considering that he should be backing up both ILB spots (as opposed to actually starting).
