He'll supplant Foote as the starter this season, IMO.

I agree. I don't think it will be terribly long into the season either, I'm thinking week 5-6.

AND Foote will take it like a man and a good teammate. Then he'll leave as a FA next offseason.

We'll see. Foote has done nothing to lose his job

it all depends on timmons development. We've seen him play in spots and be successful. can he do it consistently though?

I'm torn, but so far my money's on foote

Timmons needs to get better at stuffing the run.

Timmons flashed signs of "disruptive" last year. He's "light" for ILB. But he needs to be on the field.

There is some combination of (and I think the D coaches can figure this out) Harrison, X, Farrior, Woodley Davis that will leave O-coordinators grasping for their chittlins.

I love this team.

Timmons was more a factor than I thought he'd be last year. I see him as a playmaker this season.

The other thing we have to remember about Timmons is that he is being asked to switch to a different position than the one he was drafted for and trained for the first year. Once Harrison proved himself, Timmons got switched to ILB when he originally came out as a OLB for the STeelers.

His development took longer, but I think he is ready to step up. I also think it is time for Foote to take a back seat. I have ALWAYS considered both Foote and Haggans as placeholders between the last great set of LB's and the next great set.

That is no knock on Haggans and Foote. To even be a placeholder is this D is a great feat. . . no pun intended!
