Olsen on Bears offense - 4th Phase will be pleasantly surprised

Mike Martz was brought in for one reason - improve the offense. He's improved every offense he's called the shots on. There's no reason why the Bears offense won't improve this season. 
Many speculated that once Martz joined the Bears, Greg Olsen's role would be diminished. The Bears even tried shopping him around before this year's draft and there are rumors of the Bears shopping him around again. 
I'm not believing the rumors. The Bears won't trade Olsen because he has too much upside. His blocking has been criticized but name 5 pass catching tight ends that are good blockers. 
On ChicagoBears.com, Olsen said:
"I think people are going to be pleasantly surprised... A lot of things that we see in practice and that we've been able to get going, it's not stuff that we necessarily want to do in the preseason. Guys feel good. We're relatively healthy, and that's huge."
