Olsen being Olsen

What’s been lost this preseason in the emergence of Samuel and Moore is our ole faithful Olsen.  Man if he can ball like this for 16 games we will have weapons galore.  

 

Good stuff.

Who threw that ball?

Looks like the first one was Will Grier.

Cool.  Kid is solid.

Olsen looks fit.  Maybe a bit lighter than before.  Probably bodes well for the integrity of his foot.

It's seems like getting a solid season from Olsen is almost gravy at this point.  And that's not a knock on him.

Just the fact that the roster has been filled out with a lot more capable weapons during the last couple of seasons where he has missed so much time.  The receiving corp is remarkable better than pre-2017, the TE group is more well-rounded (although I think Dickson was a better TE2 than a lot of people wanted to give him credit for), and CMC is the most dynamic RB we have ever had.

Olsen has repeatedly stated that he expects to play well provided he can stay healthy.  And the issue with his foot was certainly not an issue of his own conditioning, just bad luck unfortunately.

I don't think Olsen is going to be a 1K receiver at this point (although I'm not going to completely rule it out), but that in and of itself is a better thing for the team overall.

I am however excited about the potential and incorporation of 2 TE sets with Olsen & Thomas.

A 12 offensive formation with Olsen/Thomas/CMC/Samuel/Moore is exciting to think about.  That grouping can beat a defense on every level of the field.

What's interesting is that so many of us were saying that about Curtis last season, coming off his bad ankle injury. I certainly didn't count on Cutis to contribute a whole lot and then was so thrilled when he did.  I hope we'll have the same pleasant surprise with Olsen this year!

I think Hogan may be the most overlooked pass catcher of the pre season myself.

Probably to most defenses too worrying about CMC, Samuel, DJ, Greg, being the 5th option means you have a lot less coverage coming your way.

Flying under the radar is his M.O..  Dude is as tough as they come.

    • Lol. No merit? You have a stat that in two years has Gano’s best year ever and conveniently ignores the year that made us draft a kicker. A stat that ignores the fact that Gano missed 4 games and is hurt yet again, 3rd time in 4 seasons. It ignores the fact that Gano’s best year ever was because Rivera only let him attempt 1 50 yard FG. Rivera has taken the ball out of his hands and you want to use a stat purely based on his attempts. How about all the punts when we were in FG range? Where’s that in the capture rate? If you also can’t get that Gano cost us $3.5m each year of Butker’s contract then there’s no point. Gano’s done nothing the past three years to merit the amount of faith people put in him around here. Keeping Butker would have been a better decision for our team. Whether you consider it to have merit or not makes not difference to those of us not blind to reality. Andy Reid has faith in his kicker, our coach does not in his.
    • his run style, foot quickness, and speed, all look like cmc. probably needs work in route running but this dude is by no means a cap clone
    • he kind of just did. buffalo's D ain't no joke. and he did it with a crappy OL as well. the guy is going to be great having on the field with and spelling CMC. he's got a lethal punch, he's fast, it looks like he's got good vision, and he's got much better hands than advertised and has potential as a decent route runner.  i'm on board having this guy on the team. gives us another good weapon on offense.
