That is because you have an erroneous notion of ecclesiology. Heresy does not mean that a Pope ceases being Pope. A Pope can only loose his office through death or resignation.

It is entirely possible for a Pope loose his faith and become an unbeliever. The Church could have a Pope who is an Atheist. We have had heretical popes in the past, like Liberius and Honorius.
The Church can never defect, but individuals can.
