It was smart for the Chicago Bears to let this player goVincent Pariseon September 9, 2022 at 11:00 am

The Chicago Bears have to wait until Sunday afternoon to get their season going against the San Francisco 49ers. It is a tough draw for the Bears in the first game as San Francisco has one of the best rosters in the entire National Football League. The quarterback will be the key for them.

The 49ers’ biggest threat in the division (NFC West) opened the 2022 NFL season on Thursday night against the Buffalo Bills. That is the defending Super Bowl Champion Los Angeles Rams who revealed their banner ahead of the game.

Many people believe that these are the two overall rosters that compete with the 49ers at the top of the league. The difference is that each of them has an elite quarterback as we are not sure what to make of San Francisco’s situation as of yet.

Buffalo won this big game, however, to get started in what might be a magical season for them. Every NFL fan was watching and enjoying the game but the Chicago Bears fans might have noticed something odd about one of Los Angeles’s players.

Thursday Night Football made the Chicago Bears look smart in one area.

Allen Robinson signed with the Rams to be one of Matthew Stafford’s primary targets. With Cooper Kupp lining up on the other side of the field as him, you would think that things would be much better for Robinson in that situation.

It is early but this game made it look like the Bears made a strong decision by letting him go. He did not have a good year with Chicago in 2021 and it seemed like Matt Nagy was the primary reason for his struggles.

With that, he better hope that he is better going forward otherwise the Bears are going to look smarter and smarter. Allen Robinson made one catch in the entire football game. Although it was good for 12 yards which is a lot for one reception, that can’t be it for him in a game.

It wasn’t completely his fault, however, as he was out there for most of the game but was only targeted twice. He caught the first one and the second one was on the last play of the game that went incomplete. That is something that the Rams and Robinson need to fix together.

Following the game, Rams head coach Sean McVay explained why that was the case by blaming the lack of rhythm in the offense. That may or may not be true but the same issue occurred last year with the Bears.

Matthew Stafford is the best quarterback that Robinson has ever had throw to him in the NFL and it isn’t close. Blake Bortles, Mitch Trubisky, Mike Glennon, Andy Dalton, and a year-one version of Justin Fields don’t even come close to comparing.

To replace Robinson, Darnell Mooney will now officially be the number one guy for the Bears. As Fields continues to develop, he needs the right weapons to grow with him and it is looking more and more like Robinson’s departure was a good thing.
