Martz Says Olsen to be More Involved in offense in 2010

The Tribune reports today that it looks and sounds like Mike Martz wants to get TE Greg Olsen more involved in the offense in 2010:

Some would say the tight end position is not an integral part of Bears offensive coordinator Mike Martz’s offensive scheme after watching Pro Bowler Vernon Davis of the 49ers catch only 31 passes in 2008 when Martz directed the offense, but Martz didn’t sound like a guy ready to squeeze his tight ends out of the equation. “Like all the positions, you take a look at what you have at tight end and who that guy is and what they can do and then you go from there. In the past, we’ve always had these big, physical tight ends who really we tried to utilize in the running game and as pass blockers and then as wide receivers, Greg Olsen is different.”

    I had extremely high hopes for Greg Olson this year. After the arrival of Jay Cutler I expected Olson to make the Pro Bowl. Well folks it didn’t happen. I am now even more pumped in that same belief. Greg Olson is a wide reciver diguised as a Tight End. Mike Marks knows this is true. I’m looking forward to next season and watching Olson shread the opposing secondaries. You heard it here first folks, “The Greatest Show on Dirt”
