Tight end Greg Olsen is proving that there is a place on Mike Martz’s offense for him. Olsen caught another touchdown this time against the Packers on Monday night. Ever since Olsen has come to the Bears, it was obvious that he had a little different “package.” Primarily, the fact he was so fast caught the eye of Bears fans.
Larry Mayer has posted an article at the Chicago Bears’ website titled “Olsen continues to prove his worth in passing game.” In the game against Green Bay, Olsen caught five passes for 64 yards. One of those was a key pass late in the fourth quarter.
In the last five games, which include last season, Olsen has caught four touchdown passes, second only to Antonio Gates of the San Diego Chargers, who has six.
In addition to Olsen’s hard work, things are buzzing at the Bears’ home. In fact, it might do those folks who think the Bears aren’t for real good to listen to Lovie Smith talk about personnel.
Defensive end Tommy Harris has been de-activated. He is healthy. However, Smith wants to get a look at other players, namely Marcus Harrison and Henry Melton. Melton was impressive but he has got to learn how to ease up on the quarterback to avoid personal fouls.
Of course the person who is making it nice for Lovie is Julius Peppers, who not only made it hard for the Packers offensive line but blocked a field goal as well, which ended up being the difference in the game.
Actually, I wasn’t surprised that Tommie Harris was de-activated; he hasn’t been a force for awhile. I have been wondering where Devin Aromashodu was. He was such a preseason force that I thought for sure he would be a key in the Bears’ offense. However, he was not dressed for the last game.
Right now, since for the most part the Bears are healthy, Smith has a lot of talent to choose from. This will just make the Bears tougher and tougher as the season progresses.
Anyone who reads my writing knows I was not high on the Bears this year. My son told me I was wrong.
Perhaps he should be writing sports.
