"I've never had a TE that runs like Greg Olsen" - Mike Martz

Bears/Cowboys game on right now in the bay area and Troy Aikman said Mike Martz told him that he's never had a tight end run like Greg Olsen. Wow...Mike Martz had Vernon Davis for a year, the fastest tight end in football. I really hope he meant Olsen's route running, but I doubt it since that comment was made on Olsen's short catch and long TD run up the middle of the field.

I am just floored by that comment from Martz.

Yeah I just heard that too. Definitely a head scratcher.
why is this in niner talk?
This is from the same guy that said JT O'Sullivan was the best QB he's ever worked with....

and martz is nothing more than a used car salesman
Heard that too. Martz must not have liked Vernon bc he never really tried to use him a whole lot.
...and JTO was the best QB that he ever coached.

Martz talks out of his ass. A lot.

This may be blasphemy on this board, but Davis is not a shifty runner. He gets tackled easily too. VD is a great player, but he is not dominant. Maybe if he had a better QB, but let's not assume that every coach has to think that Davis is the best they have ever coached.
Martz is an idiot and an a*****e
God Tony Romo makes Alex Smith look like he is in Peewee football

A debate can be had by what he meant by "runs," but I interpreted that to mean speed, but yes he could have meant shiftiness in a tight end except that comment was made when Olsen took a short pass and ran 35 yd down the field.

We saw what Vernon can do last year and the fact Martz never used him at all was weird.
We need martz!!!
Martz is full of it.
