    According to some reports, Heath was the starting SS with Iloka backing him up.

    Now it's OTAs, so it might only be a familiarity thing with Heath running with the 1s while Iloka and some of the young guys get up to speed.

    But my god, if Jeff Heath is our opening day starting SS. These guys just can't "quit" mediocre players when they became coaches' pet cats.

    Well if we're clamoring for Iloka things are bleak. Neither one is the answer.

    I'm sure he looks just great in drills that prohibit tackling. Besides, it helps Tony Pollard look awesome!

    Win-win!

    I'll settle for 'lesser of two evils' at this point!

    Can't fix it all in a 9 year process. They are waiting until year 10. I guess they could have several times, got a S and a DT, but no, it is that process they love and liking their guys.

    Maybe they want to see if the process of a very good DL and LB will make Heath into the S they want him to be. So Jerry will come on here and say...see, we knew we were right...:muttley:

    LOL only if we knew who that was! The safety situation just isn't good. Both guys will probably see time and both guys will disappoint. They're both evil.

    I'll take Iloka. He held down a job with the Bengals for quite some time and was a solid, if not spectacular player. I've never seen that from Heath and it's head-scratching that the Cowboys continue to stubbornly support a player everyone else can see is a liability.

    Wait until we trade a 1st or 2nd round pick halfway through the season!

    I like to think of him as the new barry church or orlando scandrick. A jag that somehow can't be replaced. But will be jobless as soon as they leave.

    Church and scandrick landed jobs right away after they left though. Church got a nice contract from the jags. Also to be fair Orlando was a nice player for us. Church was a coveted piece in free agency.

    Jags overvalued Church. He eventually got benched and then cut.

    I was always wishy washy on Scandrick. At times I thought he was really good and at times he would make me rip my hair out. I wonder what kind of CB he would have been if he could have stayed healthy and just been a slot CB.

    I'll never understand the amount of hate expressed here by posters as there is for Jeff Heath. He's not bad enough to get that much hate.

    Zimmer letting Iloka walk after last season is interesting. He brought Iloka to Minnesota after having coached him in Cincinnati, yet didn't seem very interested in keeping him there after one season. Declining skills?
