Greg Olsen

36 posts in this topic

Just wanted to point out you are seeing His best year in his career minus TD's which he could match / or possibly break

2012 14 games 59 receptions 747 yds 12.7 avg. 5 TDs

He is one shy of his career high in receptions (60)

747 and counting is his career high in yards

as well as his 12. 7 average

His career high in TD's is 8

HIs career long is 52 w/ Bears but he has had two 40+ with the Panthers which are his 2nd and 3rd longest receptions

I think his best days are still ahead of him pending he stays healthy.

Its pretty cool that I wanted us(among many others here) to draft this guy and we got him albeit 5 years later. I hope we retain him for along time and utilize him MORE

He is good but I still want another tight end to add another threat.... That Shockey, Olsen look was tough..

it could have been more if he was a bigger part of the game plan and wasn't ignored in so many plays the first part of the year. the offense focused too much on cam and smitty. spread the ball around more in the air and on the ground and you become harder to defend and get in the endzone more.

I've actually been impressed by Barnidge when targetted. His blocking is improving, but he's a really good receiving TE.

I am a big Olsen fan, I really want him to sign an extension. It'd be nice if he were a weapon for for longer. Its awesome we are using him more than Chitown ever did, G-reg is a definite threat.....

Was going to be wearin an 88 jersey this season, until the 2 jersey debacle last Christmas....

It's all about the U!

Draft day 07, I was screaming for my boy Olsen. Was totally find with landing Beason though, couldn't even believe we drafted him.

Fast forward 4 years and I have both on my team.

I saw Barnidge play back when his name was Mike Seidman.

Barnidge can be as good a receiving TE as about anyone in the league.

    • First, let me say that I pretty much only watch the NBA during the playoffs (or when I'm absolutely bored and channel surfing, which is very very seldom). I am really a fan of players and coaches and not necessarily teams except for the Spurs. That being said, I do support the Hornets as they are a North Carolina team---the "home" team, if you will.  The problem is I don't see any way that they will credibly compete for a championship (because they really haven't come close in franchise history). Gone are the days of Grand Ma Ma and Dell Curry, but even then one would be hard pressed to really believe. Unless they happen to draft a legitimate, and I mean legitimate, superstar that wants to be here, I can't see it. I go from year to year in June saying "Perhaps this is the year," but reality sets in during December.  Well, perhaps this is the year that they at least become credible. Monk was arguably the best pure shooter in the draft. Can he create his own shot---break 'em down and break some ankles to be a legitimate point guard? We will see. Bacon may be underrated. We will see. Does the other Superman in Charlotte have enough juice to make a credible run and get the Hornets over the hump. I don't know.  It's just hard to believe that the Hornets will actually become truly relevant when you look at their history.
    • Also, Greg is counting 20M against the cap over the next two...that's a big amount for a TE, even as great as he is.  This year he has a bit of leverage. Important piece of the passing and now running game. High cap number, and we are trying to free up space to sign the G's. Extremely healthy past.   He's just leaning on DG to extend him, and I think that we likely do....although it's not imperative.
