Anyone missing Heap?
Posted 03 October 2012 - 05:33 PM
on NFL's website, which is basically an analysis of the breakout players this far in the season, where Gil Brandt has been mentioning Dennis Pitta as one of the breakout players. He was showing some of his star ability late last season, especially in the playoffs. This made me think, has he been THE replacement for Heap, and is it true what Gil Brandt says, are we better on TE than we were when Heap was here?
No disrespect to Heap, but I have to say, I really don't miss him all that much, and my personal opinion is that Pitta has been an incredible addition.

That always sounded so sweet.
He was great, no question about it but I agree we have a better offense now.

But if you're referring to the Heap we cut prior to last year, no I don't miss him. He was injured more than he was healthy and we have rising stars in Pitta and Dickson.

Heap came to Art Modell's funeral, that says a lot for him - he will always be a Raven!

I don't know how many young dudes are in this thread, but for about 5 years Heap and Jamal Lewis were literally the only players on the team that could score points. And Heap took an absolute licking trying to make plays for Kyle Boller. If Heap had Flacco throwing to him his whole career Heap would still be playing at a high level.
If we're talking about the here and now, then obviously the FO made the right decision to go with young legs.

I don't miss Heap at all because I am reminded of how often he got injured.
Maybe because he was blocking 300lb defensive linemen on every down as his time here came to a close?
I dont miss him. Pitta is the new Heap

Plus I'll always respect the letter he wrote to Ravens fans when he left.
