Tony Paul in Arizona asks: Did you keep in touch with your former teammates last year while you were playing with the Lions and what was that like?Larry Foote: It was fun. I would call them and heckle them. They are on television a lot in prime time. I would call. I am like a fan. I would call and say what is going on, what's wrong, I am just checking in.
C.C. Berg in Wadsworth, Ohio asks: What sound does an opposing player make when you get a great hit on them?Larry Foote: It can be an awww or an oooh. It's a painful sound.
Jesse Stams asks: What is it like to be a part of the great linebacker tradition that Pittsburgh has had?
Larry Foote: It's an honor to be called a linebacker for the Steelers. You know the guys in the 70s with (Jack) Lambert, (Jack) Ham and (Andy) Russell. It's a pride thing. You know you are representing some of the best linebackers the league has ever seen.
Darnell Harrison in Lakewood, California asks: When you get your first sack or big play in Heinz Field will you do your foot stomp celebration?Larry Foote: I am looking forward to that no question. I am looking forward to running out on Heinz Field from the tunnel and seeing all of those towels. Last year when I was playing against the Steelers and saw all those towels in Forbes Field it gave me chills.
Scott Fetrowasks: When going through your pregame warm ups how do you mentally prepare yourself for the task at hand?Larry Foote: Just going over the playbook, the new plays and lays I might have struggled on during the week and make sure mentally I am sharp.
Dale Munn in New York asks: What kind of advice can you give to the Steelers rookies?Larry Foote: On the field have a short memory, keep working. Off the field I would tell them save your money.
Morgan Miller from Bridgeport, West Virginia asks: Do you have any of the any game day rituals?Larry Foote: Not really. I don't believe in superstitions. Game day is going to be what it's going to be.
Feras Zahid in Clemson, South Carolina asks: What are your favorite toppings on a pizza?Larry Foote: Bacon, pepperoni, banana peppers and sometimes I do pineapple.
