Larry Foote Talks About His Return To Pittsburgh - Part 2

Let's check in with Larry Foote one more time to here him expound upon some of his feelings about why he's so excited to be back in Pittsburgh. The clips is part of the same interview on The Drive on 1250 ESPN Radio. Many thanks to the guys there for the candid interview and sending it over. On coming home to Pittsburgh: "Just the embrace that I got from the coaches, it's a warm family atmosphere. I've never experienced before this year what I did going 2-14, just being in a situation like that. It's different, you can't really explain it, you just got to go through it. And going through it was just miserable. The Steelers are just a Class A organization. They want to win by any means. But just the quality of people they got there, they know what they're doing. And this is home! It's not where I was born, but football wise I've been here 7 years away from where I grew up at. But just this town, it's different when you go to another organization. Trust me. Just seeing that black and gold, being on the other side of it last year. Seeing them towels, and watching them on T.V, and traveling to hotels and there's only like 5 or 10 fans. Normally there's thousands when you're playing for Pittsburgh. It's a different feeling, and I just thank God for giving me the opportunity to come back here. I mean, my heart was beating fast when I knew last week that they were really serious about bringing me back. And on top of that, there's guys there that I love. Teammates on the team that I truly love being around as fans, there's coaching staff that I know and respect and love, the community, I've got my man Mike Logan even though he's too busy for me now. So it was just..God has truly blessed me today. No doubt about it." On if he plans to win Super Bowl number three with the Steelers before his time in the 'Burgh comes to a close: "Third? I'm thinking about four or five. But you got to get three first so. With our quarterback, the defense and the coach - everything's in tact. It's hard to win a Super Bowl. I ain't going to sit up here and guarantee this or that, the ball's gotta bounce your way. But there's only a few teams every year that really have a legitimate shot, and we're definitely one of them."
