How bad does the Greg Olsen trade look?

How bad does the Greg Olsen trade look?

Thats the title of the article

General manager Jerry Angelo was fired because he ran a front office that was willing to trade Olsen because the Bears' current scheme placed low priority on tight ends. And offensive coordinator Mike Martz was sent away because he ran a scheme that, among other things, couldn't adequately incorporate a player of Olsen's unique skills.

Coach Lovie Smith apparently believes that Kellen Davis could be a similar player, but after catching 28 passes in four seasons, Davis represents hope rather than serious projection. In the end, the Bears traded away one of their best players because he didn't fit a scheme that they summarily dumped five months later. That should never happen.

Dumb move looking back, if there's any chance you might get rid of Angelo AND Martz ,you don't let Olsen go...but I'm happy! Fug the Bears!

stupid move by the bears but still not as dumb as trading a 2nd for armanti edwards

still better than what they gave up for cutler, though.

Was thinking about this the moment I heard Martz was out... they gave away a very talented TE and the best receiver on the team because he didn't fit in Martz system and now Martz is gone = FAIL.

Hurney must be feeling like Belichek right now.

Meh, all Belichick does is trade players for picks, then trade those picks for more picks and never does anything with them.

IF we didn't trade for Olsen, and Barnidge was out for the season, we'd only have shockey. And he was hurt a few weeks. So I'm glad we traded for him. Would love that 3rd rounder though, but whatevs
