Agreed. If Heap isn't sold on the team, then his contract should be sold/traded for whatever anyone is offering. We don't need dissenters who aren't catching. If he's going to whine and be a pain to the coaches, at least he needs to talk with his catches, give us a reason to put up with crap. Not play a game and then be out for the next two with some minor soreness, all the while not being an impact player.
Where has Heap complained about this? Care to show me Heap's quotes? Oh, that's right, Preston's anonymous"informed" sources. Very reliable. I'm sure you would bet your house on them.

How do you know its "minor soreness"? Ever tear a hamstring?

I have and it not only really hurts but it makes your leg weak. It also affects your back. Todd also hurt his calf . That has the same effect. But hes better now and Cam says he'll be running more and more routes as the O-line progresses. Todd also said hes becoming a more complete player. Blocking was not his strong suit but he getting better

exCBfan, I concur. Heap has been known as a great "go-to" receiver, but not a physical tight end.

He also has been tagged with the "soft" label, although any one who saw the play in Pittsburgh when he limped to the line to avoid burning a timeout (and taking a cheap hit from Porter) would question that label.

It looks a great deal like a player has had his eyes opened by a new coach and new approach. Heap is making the adjustments (and making other contributions to the team).

He should be complimented rather than being criticized for becoming a "blue-collar" player. I think it only bodes well for the offense.

This was the only correct Titans-Ravens prediction I have read so far.

Flacco looked like a chump on Sunday. Just as I predicted.
