Look. All I said was the guy was his security blanket. He was. Sorry that rubs you the wrong way. He had a lot of receptions for Cutler the last two years and was particularly helpful in the redzone. Guys like Schef aren't security blankets because they're never on the field. Does Schef tend to stretch the field better? Sure, I'd concede that. But that's a different argument. It's not a security blanket's job to stretch the field. He's there to rack up receptions and bail out his QB. And Olsen did that quite well IMO.
Well if he's a security blanket, he's moving the chains, right?

And if you're not tracking the theme of my point that Olsen's best season is comparable production to Tony Scheffler, than I think you're missing the fact that he's completely expendable.

As further proven by the trade...
