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!

Great way to use a 3rd round pick as far as I'm concerned.

If Shockey wasn't around Olsen would have had a huge year

If Cutler had played all season long this wouldn't be a story. The Bears would be in the playoffs.

Still a great trade for Carolina.

Getting Olsen for a 3rd rounder was a steal. Not Bengals/Raiders trade rape, but well done.
