Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 9 vs NO (4 / 3 / 30 / 0 rec)

With the Panthers offense sputtering the entire game, Greg Olsen was not able to be the chain-moving reliable target he is used to being. A patchwork offensive line failed to protect Cam Newton and Olsen was often asked to stay in and chip defenders, eliminating his threat in the passing game. With Newton misfiring and the Saints covering the underneath throws very well, Olsen was limited to only scraps. His best catch was an adjustment on a sideline throw for an 11-yard gain, but the lack of consistency in this offense is beginning to hurt him.

2014 Week 10 vs PHI (7 / 6 / 119 / 0 rec)

Olsen is the one source of consistency for this offense. Olsen put in a workman like performance just as he has throughout the season, averaging just under 20 yards per catch and 6 receptions. Olsen dominated the seem of the field but also showed the athleticism necessary to beat defensive backs outside the numbers. Olsen is Newton's security blanket and will continue to be a safe play with occasional extremely productive games.

2014 Week 11 vs ATL (11 / 5 / 61 / 0 rec)

Suffering as a result of the Panthers' putrid offensive display, Greg Olsen nonetheless did his part. Thriving over the middle on quick-hitting passes early, Olsen and Newton seemed to be getting into a groove. However, a series of third down failures stopped that progress dead. Newton targeted Olsen on a 7-route against tight coverage, but the tight end just couldn't haul in the pass as it hit off his fingertips.
