One of the more popular topics here on WCG is the Greg Olsen & Mike Martz, will they or won't they topic. Now I may be just stoking the fires, but sometimes that's what I like to do. Yesterday ESPN Chicago had a piece from Jeff Dickerson about this very thing.
"If there's a player that can't fit a system, then something is wrong -- if he's a good player -- with the system. Don't you think?" Martz said Tuesday at Halas Hall.
Martz even seems to be happy with Olsen so far.
"Our deal is, we will give everybody an opportunity to find who they are and how they will contribute. Everybody will get that opportunity, and Greg will, too. He's learned things very quickly, very pleased with just the few things we've done on the field. Not disappointed in any respect."
But he still makes sure to let it be know he expects some good blocking from the position.
"He needs to get grounded in blocking, and he knows that, we've told him that," Martz said. "It's hard to run the ball if you don't have a tight end that's going to handle the edge over there. We've got a number of tight ends because we anticipate running the ball very well when we want to run it."
