Who dislikes him?

I simply think he has a long way to go before he's seriously pushing someone like Jansen for a starting job.

The guy was an undrafted FA who played well, but also needed his fair share of help from TE's and backs. I think people's expectations are a bit unreasonable for him right now.

It seems like a lot of people can't/won't appreciate the value of depth. It's like when Betts played well in 2006 and suddenly everyone was saying do we really need Portis. Well yeah we do, because when healthy Portis is so much more talented than Betts. But having a backup like Betts is a definite bonus. Just like having Heyer backing up Jansen is a plus for us. Heyer should only get better but to say people don't want him starting is not the same as not liking him.

Good point. Nothing wrong with having quality depth which Heyer gives us. I just don't get why some people are so eager to shove Jansen aside.
