Allen Robinson’s agent clearly is not happy.
The Chicago Bears have a perfect tool, yet refuse to ever use it. It’s no wonder why Allen Robinson is the most frustrated player in the NFL entering Week 10.
During the Bears’ second drive against the Minnesota Vikings things were looking positive for the Nick Foles-led offense. Finally in the red zone, the team had three chances to score. Ultimately, overall strong defense played a factor in holding Chicago to a 23-yard field goal from Cairo Santos.
How many times was Robinson targeted on that play? Zero? That’s about right when looking at the Matt Nagy-run offense this season. Yet, even when Nagy isn’t calling plays, Robinson’s fate is the same.
This time though, Robinson’s agent, Brandon Parker, took to social media to vent his frustration out on the situation.
How do the Bears continue to miss on Robinson
Robinson might be the most underrated wide receiver in the NFL. He shouldn’t be due to his skill set, but poor quarterback play has tampered with his overall numbers entering his seventh NFL season. In 2020, the 27-year-old has finished with 57 catches for 712 yards and only three touchdowns.
It feels like Robinson just is beyond ineffective in the red zone. That’s not his fault, but rather the play calling and the quarterback concerns. Since his college days, Robinson’s quarterbacks have been Christian Hackenberg, Blake Bortles, Mitchell Trubisky and Foles. Seriously, is there a player more cursed than Robinson when it comes to connecting with signal-callers?
Every other time, Robinson can win. The red zone? Just not his forte. Entering the final year of his contract, here’s hoping either Chicago lands a prime-time quarterback or Robinson joins a roster with an already established one. His skills are too good to be left in the shed.
