How about one not named Foote? I don't want to see another year of poor angles; misread plays; poor coverage; waiting for the ball carrier to come to him or seeing him get pushed back by the ball carrier.

Mhm. Foote has NOT aged as well as others (leave Keisel alone *Chris Crocker impression*)

If Spence didn't freaking die in the preseason, he woulda been awesome. What a shame.

Bart Scott was released, Jonathan Vilma is a likely cap cut. or just draft somebody. I'm so tired of knowing all the decent ILB's we didnt draft because we chose Jason Worilds with our 2nd round pick.

Why all the hate? Foote was one if the better players last season. smart, reliable, and has leadership characteristics. Basically the only guy in defense (besides Clark) who showed up all season. I like foote and I always have. Everyone hating cause they wanna see Spence playing. Spence is gonna be a 2-3 year project before he even gets a chance to be a full time starter. He's probably gonna be a bust at that.....anyways.

Here's to another year of a Foote in the mouths of all the haters.

I agree, I don't understand what people have against Foote. Plus, we don't even know how much they'll be giving him or what his role will be.

Honestly the only thing I have against him is his age. We just keep retaining all the dinosaurs.

Would you rather have Foote or Lewis?

Because, there's a very limited amount of money to spread around.

I like this signing. He is not flashy or makes a lot of "spalsh" plays as Tomlin likes to call it. He is just steady.
Give him a 2 yr, $6mm deal.
