He contributed more than all 3 of those players combined, I don't know what the hell games most of the people in this thread were watching but Foote was probably the 2nd best player on our entire defense last year after Timmons. Truth be told I'd rather have him back more than Harrison, Polamalu, and Keisel combined. I love all three of these guys but if you wanna talk about a players time being up, all 3 of the players you mentioned need to be in the conversation. Not to mention they cost an entire shitload more money to keep on the field, or in the case of Harrison and Troy, on the sideline nursing injuries. Bring back Foote, drop the has-beens. Like I said, I love all three of these guys and greatly appreciate their contributions over the years but this paying 10mil a year for guys to sit on the sidelines for more than half of the season and not performing when they actually do play has to stop. If nothing else, at least Foote stays healthy.

acutally I'd love to see a Ron Paul and Dennis Kucinich team roaming the middle of our field over the next few years. That combo would be hard to beat.

they may be undersized, but pound for pound you couldn't ask for more.

Do we eevn have a choice? We need him because no one else knows the defense the way he and Timmons does enough to be out ILB.

EXACTLY.

I have never understood the hatred that Larry Foote gets on nearly every Steelers forum I have seen.

He is not the best in coverage, to say the least. But he is a reliable, level-headed veteran leader that adds valuable depth to this team.

i never understood the foote hate, he's always been one of our most consistent players on defense. maybe he's hated because stillers.com calls him 'larry slow-a-foote' because he's a linebacker that doesn't do the 40 yard dash as fast as rod woodson? *shrug*

dude just plays sounds football and does his job

Foote is a step slower and rapidly declining. He's decent, but it's not like he's an All-Pro. The Steelers don't necessarily have to address the ILB with their first pick, but it should be addressed at some point in time in this draft. Spence is coming off of a serious injury and was iffy to begin with. Sylvester is an underachiever and injury prone, and Foote is on the downward side of his career. Not upgrading that position in this offseason would be a huge mistake.

We need Foote. Spence may never play again. He had a major knee injury and may never play football again. Who would we start opposite Timmons if Foote leaves?
