Bears Frustrated By Allen Robinson's Pro Bowl 'Snub'

LAKE FOREST, Ill. (670 The Score) -- The Bears have observed daily the manner in which receiver Allen Robinson works since he joined their organization.

From the moment Robinson signed with the Bears in March 2018 -- while still recovering from a torn ACL and hoping to regain his top form -- to the present in which he has produced a statement season, there has been a constant appreciation for his professional demeanor.

Which is why the Bears were so perplexed Tuesday night, when the NFL unveiled its Pro Bowl selections and Robinson was neither a starter or alternate for the game. It left those inside Halas Hall frustrated, perhaps none more than coach Matt Nagy.

"I'll just say this, A-Rob is a pro," Nagy said with his anger clear. "I'll just leave it at that. A-Rob, he's special. A-Rob, he's unbelievable. Unbelievable. That word 'snub.' A-Rob is unbelievable and needs to be in the Pro Bowl."

Robinson, 26, has posted 83 receptions for 1,023 yards and seven touchdowns this season. The 83 catches mark a career-high, while the yardage and touchdown totals trail only his lone Pro Bowl season in 2015.

Robinson's 83 receptions rank 10th in the NFL and his seven touchdowns are tied for 11th among receivers. But the class of receivers in the NFC is strong, and the Saints' Michael Thomas, the Buccaneers' Mike Evans, the Buccaneers' Chris Godwin and the Falcons' Julio Jones earned the Pro Bowl selections.

Does Robinson believe he should've been a Pro Bowl selection?

"Definitely," he said. "I thought I made plays when my number was called. I didn't make every play, things like that. But I thought I made plays."

The Bears will continue to support Robinson, who in their view has conducted himself at a Pro Bowl level -- on the field and in their locker room.

"He's a Pro Bowler in my mind," quarterback Mitchell Trubisky said.
