PITTSBURGH (93.7 The Fan) – The Larry Foote Show kicks off live from Monte Cello’s. Larry is confident in his Detroit Tigers in tonight’s Game Five against the A’s in Oakland. Half-jokingly Larry feels that allowing steroids back in baseball would even the playing field for hitters against some of these dominating pitchers. Larry hates the St. Louis Cardinals because they are always good and beat the Tigers in the World Series.

Larry believes that the recently reacquired ‘feisty’ defensive back Will Allen will contribute most on special teams. He spent the bye week eating bad and doing nothing much else at home in Detroit.

Larry is superstitious when it comes to the routine he has for watching and playing in games. There is no such thing as moral victories for Larry or most of the teams Larry has been on, “we need young guys to step up and be household names.”

“We got to fight, scratch and claw into the playoffs.”

According to Larry, five more divisional games will allow the Steelers to climb out of this hole. He thinks that the rebirth of the Cleveland Browns is because of their “incredible” defense since they are running the Dick LeBeau system under former Steelers secondary coach Ray Horton.

Winning a game in the NFL especially on the road is so hard and Larry doesn’t expect the Steelers to finish with a losing record but anything is possible in this league. The guys agree that Bill Cowher will probably coach again and it will probably be for one of the New York teams. Larry loved former Steelers receiver Santonio Holmes and was sad when he was let go.
