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.

Not an extension to his original contract for Chicago, an extension beyond the 4 years he got coming here...

But point taken, Tantric...

Not sure what that means... Barnidge has really only been injured one season.

Olsen was well worth trading that 3rd round draft pick. Hope he's a force in Carolina for years to come.

While that TE tandem last year with Shockey was a thing of beauty (big mistake to let him go), I think this team has bigger fish to fry this offseason.

Really...? Why? Have you seen anything from Barnidge to suggest he couldn't be a very good NFL TE? He only catches everything thrown to him, and has an ability for YAC. Olsen has better top end speed, but I think they have similar skill sets.
