Default Larry Foote

This guy has emerged as a defensive leader. He is playing lights out. Anyone else feel like he has been a key to Steeler D?

You guys should watch some games over again. Foote is almost always overpowered by other teams guards and pushed back on inside running plays.

Attached is some analysis of how Foote doesnt scrape well to the RB on stretch plays vs KC

He leads the team with 45 solo tackles. He is tied for the team lead with three sacks. He has one of the team’s four interceptions. He leads the team in forced fumbles (two) and fumble recoveries (two). Granted the turnover numbers should be better, but that is true of the whole D. I see him doing a great job getting to the ball. I guess you can fault find if you want, I think the guy is doing an admirable job. He is the top tackler on the league's number one ranked D.

i'd blame this one on woodley. he should have inside containment. if he penetrates further into the backfield instead of trying to hold his ground, he forces charles inside , #26 drops him for a loss.

the KC Chiefs have a very good rushing attack, currently ranked 7th in the NFL averaging 149 yds/game and we held them to below their average.

it's Matt Cassel who sucks, not Jamaal Charles and Peyton Hillis.

Foote hasn't been playing as well as a lot of people think he has, in all honesty, but I have a bigger problem with his coverage against the pass in the last few weeks than in shedding blockers against the run. Martellus Bennett beat him good a few times the other week.

Are you kidding me? Foote is filling the hole on that play. Get real.

the Steelers knew Larry Foote was weak and slow in pass coverage, that's one of the reasons we drafted Sean Spence in the 3rd round.

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!
