Default Foote 2006 season, i am not impressed..

89 tackles, 4 sacks, 2 FF 1 int.

farrior stats.:
126 tackles, 4 sacks, 2FF 1 int.

it looks like Foote was "late" on a lot of plays since he only had 89 tackles against 126 tackles from farrior... I dont think this is enough for a MLB in a 3-4 defense.... anyone agrees or disagrees ???

Well I would agree by that stat, But overall they all underachieved as a whole. I still believe Cowher not letting his players know his intentions this year made the whole team not reach it's potential & have many doubts to the future. We shall see next season. I still feel Foote is a good linebacker and thats still almost 6 tackles a game average.

One of the last jobs I had, the boss was there for 4 years, and was the one I started under. When rumor came that we were gonna get a new one, it affected us all.

There are those (fans, players, etc) that will still say it DIDN'T have an effect--but it's just human nature--especially if you like the boss you have.

As far as Foote...I think he did "ok", and hopefully when everything settles down, he'll do even better. I also believe that the majority of the team underachieved this year, so it's hard to call out just any one player.

Foote will start at ILB for the Steelers for three to four more seasons.....whether anyone likes it or not.

He just signed an extension........an affordable one at that (right up the rooneys alley)

Concur. No one handled the XL aftermath well. Especially Cowher.

It's easy for me to call out one player. For the money being made at the very least every player should show up at training camp physically and mentally prepared on day one. Not recovering from a split skull.

Training camp are no longer for getting well-conditioned. They should be that going into camp. Training camps are for getting game-ready.

does that mean we shouldve over paid for kendrell bell. if were gonna pay our o- linemen 6 mil/ year and our starting linebackers 6 mil/ year, that doesnt leave alot of room for everybody else. sure those numbers are incorrect but im sure everybody gets my point. we are not gonna have urlacher and ray lewis, with merriman, and d. brooks as our linebackers.

To tell you the truth, I can't really brag about anybody on our LB core. While many have played solid, none of them really stood out in my opinion. I don't think it's fair to call out Foote and give Haggans, Porter and Farrior a pass.

Larry Foote is coming to the Vegas STEELERS bar on SB Sunday...the STEELERS bar is called "Play of the Day "

We watched 1 game there... in 04 when we came back to beat the Cowgirls...it was really fun...I thought the roof was going to blow off..

But anyway, he'll be there signing autographs,etc..

Very cool. Are you going? If so, have fun. I was watching SteelersTV on ONDEMAND and Haggans lives out your way. Las Vegas....

Both seem like stand-up guys.
