Is Greg Olson overated by Panther fans?

67 posts in this topic

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?

Sure looks like he's gonna get 1000 yards to me.

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.
