We didnt draft Timmons to sit on the bench and Farrior is getting old.. he is now 33. With 1 year left on his contract I think that this will be his last year in the Burgh myself. Then what?... do you move Foote to his spot and insert Timmons in Foote's old spot? This is where I think that a 1st round pick on someone like Jeremy Lehman at MLB would be a nice fit.
OLB Lamar Woodley
MLB Lawrence Timmons
MacLB Jeremy Lehman (R) or Foote if needed
OLB James Harrison
Why not Crable from Michigan? He's rising on the boards fast!!

Bingo! Timmons is an UNproven commodity and I, along with you, am not sold on him yet....

Woodley is 6'2" and Timmons is 6'3". So not a bid difference there. Silverback is a midget compared to the rest of our LBing corps.

Who care's how big they are. I'm not really worried about that so much as I am them being able to tackle and play in space.
Harrison can tackle.
Woodley sure can too.
Farrior still apparently can at a decent enough level.
But Foote sucks. Timmons will be an immediate upgrade. IMMEDIATE. He'll tackle better, will cover better, is a HELLUVA lot faster, just all around better.

43 tackles in the mack position. what a joke. Someone needs to give Foote the boot ... right out the door!!! Let new england pick him up and make him an All-pro. I hear they are looking for a younger MLB.

Timmons is 6'1 by the way.
