Instead of watching the Stat Sheet, you should watch Foote play in the games.

He isnt even our best ILB on the field. He was honestly the 4th best ILB on the field vs the Chiefs. Please dont hate me for watching the actual play on the field, instead of listening to how Gruden was pumping up Foote.

Timmons blitzed the A gap. Its Foote's responsibility to make the tackle on that play and he dipped into the gap and lost outside leverage. So I guess if he "fills the hole" by your assertion he did his job and let the run go big.

Like MOP said, Woodley needs to set the edge and turn that play inside, but that is only one instance where Foote doesnt do well in traffic.

I do both...and both bear out my opinion. You are entitled to yours...you're just wrong.

He has the most tackles, some sacks, some interceptions and some game-changing plays under his belt, all at the age 32. Say what you want about him, but a few mistakes aren't going to change my outlook on his play. He's doing a great job. Everyone makes mistakes.

I agree with you.

Is Foote having a "2004 James Farrior" type of season? NO.

Is Foote having a "2009 Lawrence Timmons" type of season? NO.

Is he playing pretty well for a guy who is 32 and filling in at a position that has been ignored in the recent drafts? YES.

I think that people are jumping on Foote, when he is not only the best option, he is the only option on the roster. There is not really a young "awesome" talented ILB that has been drafted since... well... since Timmons.

Spence?... he showed promise, but he went down.

Sly?... eh... regardless, he went down, as well.

As in: what other option is there for the Steelers??? Foote is the BAP... and he has done well, considering that he should be backing up both ILB spots (as opposed to actually starting).

Foote is an average but dependable good character type player...could do better, could do much worse.
