Thread: Foote Back on Three Year Deal

  1. #31
    As long as the Steelers are not looking for Foote to start, not paying him starter numbers then I am ok with this signing.

    A "realistic" fan would know this.
    When players hit 30/31, we would let them walk and always have legit replacements. FS, SS, ILB, OLB, NT? Where are they? Where are our developed draft picks? Oh, that's right... it can't be Tomlin or Colberts fault. Where is the replacement for Cowher's players? How many of Tomlin's defensive players have adequately replaced Cowher's players?

    Farrior - (Cowher) > Timmons (Tomlin)
    Foote - (Cowher) > ??? - (Tomlin)
    Smith - (Cowher) > Hood - (Tomlin)
    Harrison (Cowher) > Worilds (Tomlin)
    Haggans (Cowher) < Woodley (Tomlin)
    Ike (Cowher) > Lewis (Tomlin)
    Polamalu (Cowher) > ??? (Tomlin)
    Ryan Clark (Cowher) > ???? (Tomlin)
    Keisel (Cowher) > Heyward (Tomlin)
    Hampton (Cowher) > McClendon (Tomlin)

    damn... the truth hurts. That's real impressive drafting and development since January 2007.

    I hope I'm wrong but I can't see how this team will be any better this year than last.
    Tomlin is not on the hot seat. Let's not start inventing that. Tomlin is going through the same rebuild and rearm phase Cowher went through in the late 90s. The Rooneys know why we have the mess we do and it isn't because of Tomlin. They know they have one of the best young coaches in the NFL and they won't let him go anywhere.
    Playing Fantasy Football does not qualify you to be the in the front office or on the coaching staff of the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are professionals and you are not!

    colbert is more to blame than tomlin, IMO.

    Oh really? Since Heinz Field opened?

    How many years was the core of this defense together?

    They are both to blame. It's either very poor drafting or very poor coaching and development. It's probably a combination of both and that's why our depth sucks and our old starters can't be replaced.

    What does that mean? Get in the game here....

    Explain this and explain why we can't replace Larry Foote in all these years.

    Farrior - (Cowher) > Timmons (Tomlin)
    Foote - (Cowher) > ??? - (Tomlin)
    Smith - (Cowher) > Hood - (Tomlin)
    Harrison (Cowher) > Worilds (Tomlin)

    Ryan Clark (Cowher) > ???? (Tomlin)
    Keisel (Cowher) > Heyward (Tomlin)
    Hampton (Cowher) > McClendon (Tomlin)

    We are so desperate that we had to take him back from the LIONS because we couldn't develop anyone else in all these years?

    Hate this move. The front office is making some real bad moves the past couple of days.

    I'm not a huge fan of it either.

    3 years just seems absurd for a guy his age.

    He was a backup for two of the three years he came back. You see we drafted some guy named Timmons in 2007. He replaced him.
