Greg Olsen reveals ‘mixed feelings’ over Terrace Marshall Jr. wearing 88

Carolina Panthers: Greg Olsen's 'mixed feelings' over number giveaway (catcrave.com)

“You know I’ll be honest, I had mixed feelings about it. Donnie (Toner) in the (Panthers’) equipment room texted me and kind of gave me a heads up. My whole thing was I didn’t want the kid to feel any pressure from me. That was his number (Marshall wore 88 in college). That’s what he wanted. I’ve heard he’s a great kid. I don’t have any animosity. I’m glad he’s going to wear it and hopefully, he’s a great player. I have no ill will.”

Yea the numbers game, its a hot button topic mainly. I think you need to be have like 93% of a early HOF career in one team to retire a number. I know after gross leftd, they gave out his number that off-season. Its weird at times too, if a few people had their way some teams would struggle having enough numbers for a full team. Maybe its time to add letters, it would be a money maker for greedy mofos I bet.

I hope Olsen is good with it because seeing a WR wearing an 80's jersey gives me the warm fuzzies.  I hated it when they were allowed to don teens jerseys and hate it even more now they can wear single digits.

It is weird to have a WR wear 88 though. Not just because it was Olsen’s. Something about it isn’t aesthetic. 87 and 89 work, 88 feels like a chode 

Hung up on Karl Hankton?

Jared Allen wore it in 2015.

There are too many retired numbers in sports.. retired numbers should be for absolute luminaries. Honor numbers, honor greats.. celebrate those guys, but  the number should live on.
