Foote is old and slow and not the answer. Everyone knows that. Watch him in coverage. Pathetic.

The only time I noticed Foote today was when he got ran over and carried for 8 yards by D. Murray.

+ 1.

Foote got bulldozed almost 10 yards. It was embarrssing. I'll give Foote "great effort" though for his play. But the sad fact is that he is a bit slow, the youth a bit gone. It's not going to cut it. He'll definitely be gone at the end of the year.

Keep one thing in mind: in 2010 James Farrior played well. Came back in 2011 and clearly wasn't the same. It's better to let someone go one year too early than one year too late. Then again, maybe they'll have no choice but to keep him.

Almost have to keep Foote around for depth, I hope Spence is more than a camp phenom.

How many times did Foote have a clear shot on Romo and he eluded him easily and Foote, due to his age and lack of quickness, wasn't able to recover? On the flip side, Timmons had one clear shot on Romo and, unsurprisingly, sat his ass down. I've said it on here before but it's relevant again - Timmons makes Foote look much better than he's actually playing. If you give Timmons a legitimate ILB to play with that's fast enough to cover and quick enough to make plays, this allows Timmons to blitz and get to the quarterback. Sadly, Foote isn't capable of doing either of those things and they've had to switch roles.

As for any news on Spence, I unfortunately haven't seen any. I'd like news one way or the other and it doesn't necessarily have to be anything definitive, just updates.

Sounds like you played a little LB in your day.
