LAKE FOREST, Ill. — Greg Olsen still sees room for improvement on offense, and that's saying a lot after the Chicago Bears racked up 473 yards in last week's playoff victory over the Seattle Seahawks.

The Bears showed they can be pretty crafty with a fairly simple offense that allowed Jay Cutler to run for two touchdowns and pass for two others in their 35-24 divisional playoff win.

But with a matchup against the rival Green Bay Packers in Sunday's NFC championship game, Olsen says the Bears aren't close to where they can be.

The tight end caught a 58-yard touchdown on Chicago's third play from scrimmage and finished the game with three catches for 113 yards.
