Just because the backup sucks does mean Heath does not suck
He’s a hell of a lot better than the “anyone but Heath” they put out there today. That dude had a bad day.
..reverse that question. If Heath had played, Dallas might of lost the game. Cherry pickens I'd say. ....
No I miss Minkah Fitzpatrick...we whiffed on that deal. We were playing the Dolphins that week, should have had that deal.
Haven’t read this entire thread yet so maybe it’s already been brought up, but Thompson literally gave up a huge completion AND face masked the guy on the same play.
Cost us a ton of yards total.
It’s funny how Heath is a whipping boy around here.
Thornhill is a FS/CB type player.
The Cowboys need a Strong Safety to replace Heath.
He was also single-handily responsible for at least 2 big runs.
Ludacris! Wood’s is our best Safety! Only person on the team that gets interceptions....
He got steam rolled in the first quarter, Whiffed on Driskill, missed tackles, got abused in coverage, had the penalty. He is going to have nightmares tonight.
He did not want to play Strong Safety.
The Cowboys need is at Strong Safety...
Heath was having a bad year, and Thompson played well in limited snaps. I was in favor of giving Thompson a lot more snaps from Heath.
Ok. We've got a clearer look at Thompson. Not better than Heath. Disappointing, but not a huge surprise either.
Let's get The GOAT back out there.
But this is how it should work. When backups look better, you give them a chance with more snaps. If they can't handle it, you go back to your original starter.
If you're not trying things that don't work out, you're not really trying. You're just way too conservative on making changes.
I, for one, am happy to see the Legend of The GOAT continue.
Heath is our best safety. Heath is not a good safety. Both can be true at the same time.
For all the complaining about Heath, few complainers realize the futility of blaming a guy for being the best of limited options, instead of those who gave us the limited options.
People similarly hated on Nick Hayden for being the best of limited options while he consistently outperformed his contract.
I never understood the attention Heath got. He’s a JAG on a pretty bad defense with problems all over the field but Heath has been the scapegoat for a long time.
Best safety at getting burned?
Heath has always been the GOAT for me. Until we get Adams this offseason.
B-b-b-but get Heath off the field our defense will be immediately better!!
I think they are doing just fine missing tackles without him. He’d be proud!
Heath needs to be on the field if for no other reason he is not afraid to bring the wood.
Maybe what we saw today is what the coaches have been seeing in practice. Maybe that's why Heath had to be injured for him to play.
