Olsen does need to step up. i expect more from him than what he gave us last year.
hopefully being healthy will also help cut down on our defensive penalties.
I agree that with Olsen being the main TE his receptions could very well go up. Which I feel is a good thing. He needs a good year to get back to being in that elite category discussion.
I had not really thought about the correlation between missing starters and penalties. But it does make sense. Hopefully, with Beason back, the communication should improve. Which should help the overall play of the D. Thus cutting down on the penalties. That, and getting Capt. back to nickel back.
