While being a player is tough in the NFL. It’s a business and they all understand that. Being a fan is hard as well. As ridiculous as that may seem, we invest time and money to root on our favorite team and favorite players. When the business part of the NFL kicks in, it hurts the fans as well.
The Seattle Seahawks made a move that tugged on all our heartstrings when FB Michael Robinson took to Twitter with the following tweet:
Been real #12thMan will always have love for ya
— Michael Robinson (@RealMikeRob) August 31, 2013
If this is the case, this is a bold move by team brass to add Robinson to the casualty list when trimming the roster to the 53.
Michael Robinson’s leadership will be missed in Seattle
Robinson was instrumental in helping Pete Carroll and John Schneider implement their style of football: a physical ground and pound run game that would wear down defenses and open up the pass.
We all agree they have more than succeeded in that vision.
Besides dominating special teams and opening up holes for Marshawn Lynch, Robinson rushed for over 100 yards and had 3 touchdown receptions, including a big one in last year’s playoff game against Washington.
He was a Pro Bowler in 2011. He also provided invaluable leadership as demonstrated by several players who have praised Mike Rob for his knowledge and leadership.
Then you have The Real Rob Report. It is very rare these days for rich, famous and popular folk to give inside glimpses of any aspect of their lives.
RRR went well above and beyond that. Showing the characters in the locker room from Marshawn Lynch to Sidney Rice and Jermaine Kearse to the Legion of Boom gave the fans an inside look at our favorite team.
That inside look made us love the team more as well as the man who brought us the honesty behind the scenes, Michael Robinson.
From his inside views of the locker room to his veteran leadership to his knack for putting opponents on their backside, Mike Rob is going to be missed in Seattle.
