Is Greg Olson overated by Panther fans?

The rest of the league dosen't seem impressed by him. Panther fans were saying he was going to absorbed Shockey catches and get close to 1000 yard and 10 TD's this year. That doesn't look like it is going to happen. What makes him better than a middle of the pack TE such as Fred Davis, Jared Cook, or up and comer Kyle Rudolph?

I personally think he's a middle of the pack TE. He's definitely above average as a pass catcher, but he's also below average as a blocking TE.

Olsen has been consistently getting open according to PFF, Cam has been ignoring him and forcing it to Steve. I've seen multiple times where Olsen has been open and he throws his hands up in frustration because Cam forces it to Steve or holds it too long and takes a sack.

Does Fred Davis consistently get open? Does Jared Cook consistently break tackles for big gains? Does Kyle Rudolph consistently catch goalline touchdowns? They all have their style. Is Greg Olsen worth considerably more than any of them. Is he in a category above them?

Seems like when we are using him we march down the field.

Olsen isn't an elite TE but he can be a good TE. He is consistant and can ake big plays. It is very true Cam forces to smitty rather than giving to Olsen who is always open, I see it every game. Personally, I think Olsen is also a momentum guy and seems to be in better shape than last year in my opinion. Cam just needs to get him the ball, not sure what else Olsen could do. He isn't the best blocker but in this scheme his main job is to get open, and recieve the ball, doing what he does best which he seems to do.

Stuck between WR and TE. We aren't utilizing him enough, because we are either run it or chuck it deep.
