Default Re: Those interested in Louis Nix


I was never a big Foote fan, but he was really solid after he came back from Detroit.

He was better until he got hurt than most Steelers fans think. Not a difference maker, but solid.

They missed him greatly this year, more than Hampton.

Williams was really shaky overall. Consistently just made bad reads and blew assignements. He is a hice physical talent, is big and can run for his size, and made the ocassional big hit. But, he was a substandard starter.

There is a reason his play decreased and they ended up with Polo as a LB/Monster back.

Not to mention the playcalling aspect.

The problem was that at a certain point, those tackles went from "behind the LOS" to "at the LOS"... and eventually "three yards past the LOS."

Foote rarely let RBs get past him, but he was not "stopping" the run. Three yards is still a good gain.
