Good signing for teh Lions! Foote, Simms and Peterson compliment each other really well imo. Simms is the sideline to sideline guy, Foote is the thumper in the middle (but he also has very underrated range), and Peterson is the all round great player. If i was a lions fan, i'd be very pleased with the state of your linebacking core.
Don't tell me we cut Zach Follett though, that would suck.
It could actually be a good unit if Ernie can learn to play within the damn defense for once. He's regressed so badly since his rookie year it's ridiculous. If he can just stop overrunning everyfrickinthing and improve his tackling and pass defense (I know, it's kind of alot to ask from a guy that's been in the league a few years), the LB unit might actually be a strength of the defense. If Ernie has another bad year and keeps running himself out of plays left and right and missing tackles, it's not going to matter how good the other two play.
