Shouldn't Timmons be the guy on defense with the green dot on his helmet? Why have Foote be able to communicate with coaches and call the plays for the D if Foote comes off the field on passing down sub packages (which in today's NFL, is about half the time with most teams that have a good QB). Timmons plays in our base 3-4, the nickel, the dime, etc. so he should be the man with the speaker in his helmet, no?
I agree. If Timmons is going to be calling the D eventually, he should start now. The kid has been here for 5 years. If he is ready for Buck, let him buck. Foote will be fine at either position.
Even if Bill Belichick was getting an atomic wedgie, his face would look exactly the same.
