Olsen's blocking ability.

11 posts in this topic

Great day receiving for Olsen and I love the guy. But he was getting abused, manhandled raped, beaten, etc. by Von Miller today. We need to get another Gronkowski. Our offense is suffering with the loss of Shockey. This draft we have a lot of avenues to consider going down with that first pick.

Miller would abuse most TE's, he should never take on a premier pass rusher like that. I don't fault Olsen at all, he's never been known for his blocking.

Yep, Olsen is a receiving TE. We knew that when we brought him here. You can't blame the round peg for not fitting the square hole.

Are there any TE's in this coming draft worth taking in the first round? Also yes I'm dead serious.

Yes, the 6' 6" kid from ND, could get him in the early second.

Olsen has actually improved his blocking quite a bit this season. He's had quite a few plays that he springs big runs by taking the backer or safety completely out of the play.

That being said today was rough for him. But without us knowing the blocking scheme I think it would be rather difficult for any of us to sit here and blast him.

There is no way he should ever be put one on one with one of the premiere pass rushers and overall defensive players in this league like Miller. I wonder if he weren't meant to help or chip and it was Bell's responsibility (he was benched late after all.) One thing is for certain is that the Broncos knew we were weak up the middle and they abused the trio of Hangman, Byers and Amini all game. Just a rough week :/

If Olsen can't block then don't ask him to...there are two other tes on this team and a fullback. Use them.

You know the old cliche about if you can't say anything nice...?

Olsen is a better blocker than Barnidge. That's all I've got.

    • You miss the point. Taylor was here before. We picked him because of what he could do for our wide receivers not because he had some great knowledge no other person had on the staff. Shula and Rivera and Gettleman studied multiple college systems for months before signing Taylor or drafting McCaffrey or Curtis and would have drafted the same whether Taylor was here or not. They liked the way Taylor developed McCaffrey which showed his talent but Stanford's offense wasn't Taylors idea or unique to him. Shula has a connection to Taylor as early as when Shula was at Alabama.  The debate was whether Taylor was chosen to replace Shula because Shula didn't know what to do to run a college offense and if he screwed up Taylor would replace him. And that Taylor was the reason and most influential in getting McCaffrey. I said it wasn't even close to the truth and this plan predated Taylor and was more thorough and we'll thought out. Everything since then just confirms I was right once again like usual.  
    • Assholes should've never taken it away in the first place.  Me and a couple buddies had a hookup and were all hyped up and planned out going to it... then the NBA had to get all political and take it out on the city of Charlotte and the fans -- which made no fuging sense.  Seriously doubt we'll even get the chance to go again.
    • 6'6" 255.  He'll definitely have some good mentors with JP, CJ and the rest of the D-Line crew. 255 he'll need to put some weight on don't you think?
