Foote nails it - Timmons is not only a #1 pick but, if the reports from around draft day last year are accurate, a #1 pick that Tomlin pushed to be selected.

Having the HC in your corner and presumably wanting to be proven right, along with a front office that does not want to be answering questions about laying out that kind of $$ for a ST player, means it is Timmons job to lose.

It's a business and a cardinal rule of business is that management hates to admit it is not getting an adequate return on an investment and therefore may have screwed up..

typically, OLB's are taller than ILB's

paul was great at pennstate and had a decent rookkie year with the bills besides the injuries... but he is quickly becoming forgotten with the mergence of sean lee and dan connor... i would have much rather seen revis as a steeler but i've quickly gotten over it...

ya i agree with HTG

Foote come through the ranks prayed behind Kendrell Bell and became the starter. I say keep him in. He gets he job done. Him might be getting blown off the line because our d linemen blow and the linemen go straight to foote.

(but LOLZ) do u remeber that play off game when Foote couldnt tackle mcnair(when he was on the titians) he had some many chances for sacks and he just bounced of mcnair like a bouncee ball.

Wrong again, taller OLB's are more prevelant in the 3-4

Time for a lesson: Merriman is 6'4", Shaun Philips is 6'3", Adalius Thomas is 6'3",
Vrabel is 6'4", Wimbley 6'3", McGinest is 6'5", Ware is 6'4", Porter is 6'3", Haggans is 6'4".

Argument is over, I am right and you are wrong

wow... we have a smurf wide receiver core.. and now we are going to have smurf linebacker core. harrison is no bigger than 6'0.. woodley is barely over 6'0. and timmons is even smaller than foote. farrior will be our biggest linebacker. lol.
