Robinson: Bears' Breakthrough Wasn't Surprising

October 04, 2018 - 2:55 pm

(670 The Score) The bye week arrived for receiver Allen Robinson and the Bears in a comfortable position at 3-1 and atop the NFC North.

The Bears earned a convincing 48-10 victory over the Buccaneers last Sunday, one in which quarterback Mitchell Trubisky threw for six touchdown passes. It marked the breakthrough offensively that many of the Bears saw coming, including Robinson.

"I've been saying from week to week that we've been close," Robinson told the McNeil & Parkins Show on Thursday. "You know, we've been close. Maybe it's a completion, maybe it's route-specific, maybe it's red-zone technique, but we've been close. That's something that for me being in this league, watching film and stuff like that, it was easy for me to see. We had a lot of stuff that was in the making. 

"We just had to improve it a little bit to get the outcome that we wanted. I thought throughout the course of Tampa week, we had good practice and game prep, we were going to take those steps"

The Bears are averaging 27.8 points per game as a team, with the offense currently contributing 24.3 points and 341 yards per game.

Trubisky's historic performance Sunday came after three weeks of scuffling on offense, and it's something Robinson feels can be a consistent factor.

"We have the weapons to do that," Robinson said. "Like I said from the beginning, I think it's all up to us how good we want to be as an offense."
