Let's hope the sulking, no catching , always hurt with hangnail injuries Todd Heap is gone next year and we get a real NFL tight end, one who can catch, not sulk, and can play with a hang nail!

i'll agree w/ no catching, but c'mon. the man gets hurt. is it alot? yeah, it is. but i don't believe he is playing up minor injuries, i think he is just injury prone. and the sulking thing? please. he may be getting phased out, but he's not making a fuss over anything. can you imagine if we had that D-Bag winslow or shockey? all they do is b*tch about their catches and TD's and never get involved in the blocking.

i do believe heap has seen his best days, and unless he starts contributing w/ key catches he'll be gone, but stop w/ the bashing based on fantasy character flaws

There are some fans that have said this before and I will say it again here.

Heap has not been and may never be the same after that devastating ankle injury.

End of story.

Yeah...he's only our all time leading receiver. He only acted as a security blanket for every poor QB we could put under center. He only works in the middle and has become our all time leader not because of YAC...but because of the sheer volume of catches...most of which included some hard hits...that he took over and over and over. The offense is playing good...don't get cocky and forget who danced with us when we were stinking up the field.

With this team's preferred approach of pounding the ball, and the fact that they're not getting the catches out of the tight ends anyway, why not sign an old offensive tackle (or a smallish offensive tackle), give him a number in the 80's and just call him a tight end?

If they're just used as glorified linemen anyway, why not? Just imagine a "heavy package" with 7 offensive linemen, Lorenzo Neal leading Le'Ron McClain through the hole; three yards, a cloud of dust, and blood all over the field...

The only problem is that it might be too much of a give away. In the press conference a few days ago, Harbaugh did mention that teams were still covering Heap. His reputation has not left him yet, despite his injuries. That is keeping the defense honest and we need that right now.
