My healers have no issues with me, any my threat/dtps is far more than fine. Our cooldowns are also the opposite of long, although I can't disagree with the overall shortage of them.
What are you specifically having issues with? Generic QQ isn't going to get you any help.

Impale, Void Bolt, and Focused Assault say hi.
The weakness of prot warriors this tier has a lot more to do with the terrible design of DS than with the class itself.

Impale, Void Bolt, and Focused Assault say hi.Impale is hardly a difficult mechanic to mitigate, especially with Shield Wall at 2 min.
It hits for 1.2 million on heroic. The issue isn't Shield Wall, it's that Shield Block doesn't mitigate it, unlike Barkskin/Bone Shield/Divine Protection.
EDIT: That being said... which encounter(s) are you having trouble with, OP? It's likely that we can offer advice on cooldown rotations to help you survive better. The only fight where warriors are completely screwed is Yor'sajh 25-man heroic, honestly. On the rest of the "anti-warrior" fights, it's just a moderate disadvantage.

It hits for 1.2 million on heroic.Sorry, I missed the part where OP is on heroic Madness.
Neither am I. That doesn't mean it's not a design problem that Blizzard decided to implement terrible fight mechanics this tier.
EDIT: Derail it? He was never asking for specific advice for his situation, but rather discussing a common complaint of warriors in Dragon Soul.

Remember, bosses in Cata won't burst hard enough for EH to be a meaningful consideration in tank selection. It'll take the boss 6-8 swings to kill you from full health, and the healers will really need to push themselves in order to top you off.
