    Anyone Else Concerned about Heath?

    Over the last 3 games he has a total of 4 receptions and more drops than I can ever remember him having in consecutive games. Throw in the fumble and the lack of targets recently and this all troubles me. Teams are starting to lock safeties on him rather than LBs and I'm not sure he or Arians has adjusted yet.

    Arians and adjusting does not really go together.

    Was Saunders hurt?

    I like Cotchery, we need to use him more, he finds open spaces fast.

    Heath is one of the most reliable TE's in the league...i'm not worried one bit...first real cold game of the season and Heath was hit pretty hard on that fumble

    I wouldn't say I'm concerned about Heath making plays just yet. He's been doing this for a long time and has been the most consistent, reliable, safety valve for Ben that you can hope for.

    I do think he's in a bit of a slump this last month though with the fumble, drops, and overall lack of clutch play but I have faith he'll battle out of it. I have seen them starting to roll a Safety his way rather than a linebacker which is something he's not used to seeing. I think though as you start to see more of Brown and Wallace making plays and when Sanders gets back, you'll start seeing Heath get that linebacker coverage again.

    With Emmanuel Sanders being out and Hines not getting many looks these days that allows the defense to lock in more on Heath.

    If it becomes a trend and continues into the Playoffs, then I'm worried. Right now my gut tells me he'll bounce back.

    Please, please, please let other teams start rolling that safety his way, he will adjust after a while but in the meantime that means either MW or AB will have some more opportunities down the field.

    I'm not worried about Heath. Guys have ups and downs in a season, so I figure he'll get past this.
