    As long as Larry Foote is at ILB for the Steelers...

    .. opposing teams are going to run right at the middle of this defense. And they will have success. Foote can't even come off of a block from a fullback.
    Steelers 2014 Draft

    1-Darqueze Dennard CB Michigan State
    2-Jordan Matthews WR Vanderbilt
    3-Jordan Tripp ILB/OLB Montana
    4-Christian Jones ILB Florida State
    5-Brent Urban DE Virginia
    5-Michael Schofield OG/OT Michigan
    6-Kadeem Edwards OG Tennessee State
    6-Ben Gardner DE Stanford
    7-Aaron Colvin CB Oklahoma

    Foote is not a great player. He's a liability in coverage, and yes, sometimes he's taken out of plays too easily. If we get a chance to get a better ILB, I hope we take it.

    That said, he's not the biggest problem with this D (you speak as though he is). If the guys playing in front of him weren't sucking so bad, I think Foote might even look a little better.

    from Ed Bouchette's latest chat:

    Comment From War18
    Ed, Larry Foote has played pretty darn good for a guy that is supposed to be done, are you surprised at his play?

    Ed Bouchette: No, I've always thought Foote was underrated on a defense with a lot of good players on it. He leads the team in solo tackles, total tackles, has four QB pressurs and leads with two forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries.

    I've been wondering about this too. From what I've seen (which admittedly isn't much) I haven't noticed Foote being that big of a liability at all.

    Agreed- I haven't seen that either. Nothing that I have seen has made me think he's spectacularly bad.

    This is coming from a guy who thought Cedric Wilson was an great WR.

    Larry Foote is definately a bright spot on our defense this year.

    Uhhhhhhhhhhhhhh you might wanna get facts straight. It was Steelers43 who was the Cedric Wilson fan. Not me. In fact I was the one who was adamant about drafting a WR because of stiffs like Cedric Wilson. Remember the whole Mike Williams thing?

    If you or anyone else can't see that opposing teams are having success running right through the middle of the Steelers then I dont know what to say. Larry Foote is no where to be found at the point of attack. He is getting beaten rather easily. And as this season goes longer and the opponents get better this ugliness will rear it's head even more so.

    We got you down as a Larry Foote bright spot guy.

    I do vaguely remember the guy who claimed to be Wilson's cousin, but I don't think it was Dub.

    It's a shame those old Triblive boards weren't archived somewhere. Good times.
