I'm with you on that concern. My hope (not to be confused with a mandate) is that one of the younger ILBs could supplant Foote as the #3 (Sylvester). Then have another young guy in the wings as a #4 (Ivy?). But if these young guys aren't stepping up, then you have to keep Foote.

My concern is that if something happens with Farrior or he retires after this year, Foote is a downgrade. They have to find the long term solution at ILB.

Dick Lebeau likes Foote because he doesn't make mistakes. He plays were he's told to play. This is very important for a bend but don't break defense. This is the very reason it's rare to see a rookie start for Dick Lebeau on a regular basis.

When your play makers are taking risks trying to make big plays your "role" players better be in the right spot at the right time. Smart role players allow guys like Harrison, Timmons, and Polamalu to do what they do.
