Default Can Foote take Farrior's job?

Farrior had some big let down plays late in the 4th quarter this last year where it was pretty evident that age is catching up with him. Foote is younger and possibly faster. Do you let him compete for the spot or maybe even give more plays to Farrior off during the first 3 quarters and keep his legs fresh for the 4th?

I am really happy Foote came back it gives us damn good depth but I really would hate to see him sitting on the bench when he can be on the field and contribute as we have all seen in the past.

Just throwing some shit out there folks the season seems so far away! Lets talk football and the upcoming season!

My opinion is Farrior is a leader no doubt about it but Foote could give him some rest time and still utilize Footes ability to start and contribute in a meaningful way keeping him happy and keeping Farrior fresher as the quarters progress and also as the season moves along.

You can't beat off time and it shows as the years progress.

I don't think Foote could replace him mentally. My guess is that they're going for a rotation to both keep everyone fresh and get the use of each their attributes (Farrior, Foote, Timmons).

That said, Foote may be the heir apparent to Farrior after this year. Who knows, maybe Potsie will respond to being pushed by a 3rd ILB.

I dont know if he will "take" Farrior's job, but i think they can switch them in and out and give Farrior a break so he can be fresh later on in the game.

timmons is in line to take over for farrior in a year or two. foote is a run stuffer, and cannot cover very well.

Foote plays at the "mack" linebacker position. Farrior doesnt. I dont exactly understand the difference, but im sure if there's different names for it, there is a difference...lol. They have different duties really, so id say no. But in the case of an injury to Farrior, i guess Foote gets the call of duty. Even when Farrior is healthy, I think Foote will be a great help, spelling Farrior as said before above.

actually he is being brought back precisely for his mental-

per wexell:

Yes, if Farrior gets hurt, replacement will be Foote, who's more verbal and understands position and defense better than Timmons.

Foote will back both inside positions, and in place to take Farrior's spot in '11 s/ he knows most complicated Def posiition

and not that his word is gospel but he doesnt think farrior has lost a step (foote spelling him in games should keep both fresh and even better)-

Sorry, but just because of 2 plays I'm not down on Farrior's speed (for Foote?!). Watch last play of Ravens II, James on Rice.

Very true Fox did a hell of a job filling in.

i certainly hope not, it would be a disaster. foote may be average on a good day against the run, but he is horrible in pass coverage. he was statistically the most burned LB in the NFL last year in pass coverage. foote in pass coverage is like kordell playing QB.

this is the way i look at it. it's an uncapped year and the lions didn't even want him.

if farrior gets hurt i hope fox comes in. or perhaps timmons to farrior's spot and fox implanted in timmon's.
