Steelers Media Day Quotes: Larry Foote


(on LB James Harrison’s ability to cause fumbles) “He blows by guys so he has time to think and be aware of the ball. He understands it is a momentum swing to cause a turnover. He works on the strip with the bags at practice every day. The strip-sack is his platinum move.”


(on the team’s mentality on causing turnovers)
“The team that takes care of the ball and forces the most turnovers normally wins. You want to increases your chances of winning and the best way to do that is by getting off the field and giving your offense the ball.”

(on why he didn’t get a booth for Media Day) “I don’t know. I think Ben (Roethlisberger) took my booth. They put my name on it first but then Ben took it. I am fine where I am – enjoying the sunshine and relaxing.”

(on if he has toured Tampa Bay since he arrived) “No, I don’t know what has been going on. We are here to do a job. That is to win the game – nothing else.”

(on why Pittsburgh’s defense has developed so many good linebackers) “They have developed outside linebackers well. In the 3-4 (defense) you have to have two good pass rushers. That is what we have. If you want to develop the 3-4 you better have some good linebackers that can rush the passer and cover. I think it starts with the outside linebackers.”

(On what it takes to play inside linebacker) “(James) Farrior and I aren’t the biggest guys but we have to react fast. We have to be that much faster because offensive linemen are coming hard and we need to react faster than them.”

(On representing the University of Michigan at the Super Bowl) “We have a number of guys from Michigan. We have LaMarr Woodley and about six other guys from the University of Michigan. ‘Go Blue’ nation is going crazy right now.”
