    Re: Timmons Poised to Unseat Foote

    I'm really enjoying the read on this thread as I've always been a big
    follower of both Foote and Farrior as unsung players on our D who were
    overshadowed by the media coverage constantly given to Peezy.

    Having seen both up close at practice over the last few years, I'd agree
    that Foote just seems smaller than Farrior in his build and I'm excited to
    hear more about the young hitters we have waiting in the wings.

    However, I'm also saddened a bit by their potential departure from our team as
    I think they both have contributed, perhaps Farrior much moreso vocally
    with Foote being his quieter alter ego, in a leadership role for our defense.
    Again, overshadowed by coverage of Peezy a lot while he was here, but just
    as charismatic when it counted and was needed.

    Of course, on the other hand, Foote can always come join my team...

    If Timmons wins the job, Foote would probably back up at both positions.

    Agreed. And if Foote wins the job, Timmons would probably back up at both positions.

    My guess is that Foote starts out the season next to Farrior on 1st and 2nd downs, Timmons is next to Farrior in the nickel, and Timmons is the lone LB in the middle in the dime. This type of 3 man rotation should hopefully keep all of them fresh.

    The 4th ILB on the roster will likely be Keyaron Fox or Mike Humple, I suppose, but they would be primarily special teams guys that rarely see the field in the regular D (a la Clint Kriewaldt).

    I think Timmons beats out Foote, but I am really looking forward to seeing if Fox and Humpal can make a difference on special teams. We just need to be better than Arnold Harrison, Frazier and Kriewaldt were. I can't remember any of them making a special team tackle of note.
