Jay Cutler Superstar

Cutler to Olsen Could Be Huge

Vaughn McClure of the Trib had this report from camp:

Cutler started 7-on-7 drills completing 5 of 6 passes, including a deep one down the sideline to Earl Bennett. Cutler ended practice 6 of 8 running the two-minute drill out of the shotgun from his own 35. The drive ended with a 2-yard end-zone hookup with Greg Olsen on the fade, a nice one-handed catch.

Mr. Personality: As Olsen was surrounded by reporters after practice, Cutler casually walked by and said, "Two hands, two hands."

Everyone seems to be concerned about who will be receiving all of these Cutler passes. How about 80 or so to Greg Olsen? I'll even go so far as to say that I will be surprised if Olsen is not the Bears leading receiver in 2009.

He had a solid rookie season and took another step in 2008, catching over 50 balls. He has the skill set to be one of the best receiving tight ends in the game. Olsen made do with the revolving set of QBs the Bears employed. Now that he has a one of the NFL's best young passers on his side, I think most Bears fans expect big things.

Forte running and catching balls in the flats and Olsen over the middle and even long opens it up more for deep balls to Hester.

Nobody likes a show off ( except when catching touchdown passes!)
