Olsen alone makes our TEs good. People keep worrying about adding another big receiver but they seem to forget that in Olsen we just did. The guy is 6'5". 255 and he runs a 4.5 40. Now compare that to Plaxico, Edwards and all the rest and get back to me.

We have our mismatch problem solved. Teams who double Smitty and leave the other guys in single coverage are going to get abused by our tight ends. Running a 12 personnel with one running back, 2 TEs, and 2 wideouts gives us potentially 5 receivers forcing teams into a nickel. When they do that our running game is going to go nuts.

And in that running game they have to account not only for RB's but our QB

IF Barnidge doesn't make the cut, Olsen may go back to 82...just sayin.

Exactly. If we run a 2 tight end, 2 running back set with the fullback, and split Smitty wide we have essentially a wildcat formation only with Newton we have a guy who can run or throw. If they stuff all the gaps, we have 3 receivers who can burn them counting the tight ends. If they don't run blitz, we can overload the edges and run at will. The difference between Newton and Vick or Cunningham or all the other so called mobile quarterbacks is that Newton is a load at 255 and actually much bigger than almost anyone's back 7.

I think we need a better name than a recycled StL moniker for the Panthers edition...
