Steelers' LaMarr Woodley tweets about Donovan McNabb, Larry Foote tells Woodley to 'shut up'

Gregory Shamus

Steelers linebackers verbally sparred, in a friendly manner, Tuesday about quarterback situation.

Though the Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback situation is a bit dicey heading into Sunday's match-up with the Cleveland Browns -- long-time veteran Charlie Batch is expected to get the starting nod -- a pair of Steelers linebackers,LaMarr Woodley and Larry Foote, had a little bit of fun Tuesday.

As he usually does on Tuesdays, Foote joined the Fan Morning Show where he was asked about Woodley's recent tweet asking Pittsburgh fans their opinion on free-agent quarterback Donovan McNabb.

His response: "[Woodley] should shut up and play football."

Foote said the Steelers players have total confidence in Batch, who's a 15-year league veteran who last season started one game for Pittsburgh. In that game, Batch helped lead the Steelers to a dominating 27-0 victory over the Detroit Lions.

In addition to addressing Woodley's tweet, Foote said wide receiver Plaxico Burress, who has been working out with the Steelers, "would look good in any uniform."
