Watch the KC game again. The tape doesnt lie!

You watched the game on DVR just so you can prove us wrong about Foote? 3 sacks, 2 forced fumbles, 43 total tackles and 21 tackle assists. Not to mention a pick or two to put the cherry on top. The only way you could possibly prove that he's a BAD linebacker is if you went back and watched every game this year. If he's erased from the defense for the entire season, we may lose some games without the momentum he provides to the team with sacks and turnovers. I'm not saying he's as good as the announcers are making him out to be, just saying he's one of our best defensive players, and he's not washed up.

I would say the entire secondary and the rest of the starting LBs are better...Foote struggles in coverage and struggles to shed blocks. He's been okay and has been schemed well into making some splash plays. Hopefully that continues to be good enough for now, which was the design all along.

I was at the game so I didn't hear what Gruden said about anything (thankfully) KC ran the ball on us, far too easily, and as I usually do I watched the DL and LB play. Our OLB's were not very good in the game, people can blame Foote and point to specific plays, but Woodley and Harrison were too easily blocked at the point of attack. Harrison, especially was awful on play action where Cassel was able to too easily able to get outside of him.
Foote may not be the best player we have, but IMO he is doing a decent job.

I don't know why Larry Foote has never gotten any love or respect from this fanbase. Folks have complained about him since 2005. All he has done is provide solid inside linebacker play on more #1 ranked LB units than not in the last 8 years. He is still our best ILB in run stopping.

Keep in mind, isn't he also filling in Farrior's old role of calling the plays and coordinating with Dick Lebeau over the radio?

So your entire analysis of Foote's play this year is based solely on one, single game against the #7 ranked run game?

What do your tapes of the other eight games we played this year show you?

No, not based on 1 single game. I have been noticing all season that Foote is not attacking the line of scrimmage and filling in the run game. He often gets driven back or ridden out of the play by offensive linemen.

Foote is playing rather passive compared to his previous years with the Steelers.

I have I think 3 more games on the DVR and will go thru those too if you want me to break down his play more?? He was similarly getting owned in the Cincinatti and Giants games.

Some have questioned his pass coverage skills, but I dont think he has been too bad there. He gets into his hook-curl zone drops farily well. Its only when he has man coverage on a TE that he looks like a liability.

My whole point is that so many fans just look at the stat sheet and think Foote is doing so well this year. I think there are a few posters on this site that have watched more than just his stat line and also see that he isnt that impressive.

The ILB position that Foote is playing is a point of weakness in this defense. Watch some tape and you will see.

I will agree with you that he has been consistent. Consistently weak against the run as an ILB. Its not one bad game, but a string of games where he blitzes well vs the pass, gets pushed around vs the run and is mediocre in pass coverage.

Again, watch the games, tape them and review his play. Its not impressive, but I hope he returns to 2005 form tonight.
