This comes after the Bears suffered an ugly loss on prime-time television to their rivals the Green Bay Packers.
The Bears lost 41-25, a score that doesn’t show the one-sided nature of the game.

Green Bay jumped out of the gate and scored three touchdowns on their first three drive.
From there, they never looked back.
Bears’ quarterback Mitchell Trubisky, who started his first game since Week 3, made a plethora of mistakes.
Though he threw three touchdown passes, he committed three turnovers that led to touchdowns for the Packers.
In what could have been a statement game for the Bears, the team seemed to reach a low point.
This level of poor play has caused unrest among fans and players alike.
Robinson echoed this distaste for the team’s current state.
“That’s Not in My Control”
So far this season, Robinson has been a standout performer for the Bears.
After Week 12, Robinson currently ranks 14th in the NFL for receiving yards.
This comes in an offense that ranks 21st in the league for total passing yards.
On top of this, the general QB play from Nick Foles and Trubisky has been severely inconsistent.

Following their loss to the Packers, Robinson answered questions on how he is able to still play at a high level even with the poor quarterback play.
“However people are performing, that’s not in my control,” Robinson said.
In his role on the team, Robinson is playing well.
The other players on the team are outside of his reach, but he is just focused on himself.
This does not make him immune to his own criticisms, however.
“There’s a couple things that I’d want back,” Robinson said about his performance against the Packers.
However, much of this is nitpicking on himself as he has truly been a shining star in an otherwise lackluster Bears offense.

Hinting on Social Media
After the game, Robinson dropped some interesting hints on Twitter.
He liked a few different tweets saying he is wanted on different teams.

He has since unliked the Tweets.
This also comes after fans on social media were making comments about Robinson not making contested catches.
He put out a Tweet today, likely in response to those criticisms.
Keep that same energy and watch it come full circle!!

Robinson’s Future with Bears
This offseason, the Bears failed to sign Robinson to a contract extension.
After this season, Robinson will enter free agency where he will likely become a hot commodity.
The Bears could put the franchise tag on him but doing so with a disgruntled Robinson would only end poorly for both parties.
It is instead more likely that the team will let him explore his opportunities on the market.
Here, he will be courted by teams with better QB play where Robinson’s skillset can be heightened even further.
However, the Bears could also choose to actually build a better offense around their wide receiver.
This would mean reworking their pass game, starting with their own QBs.
For the rest of this season though, the team will have to continue as is.
As it stands now, the franchise is “on the bubble” for the playoffs, still vying for a Wild Card spot.
If they are able to put a consistent offensive attack on the field, spearheaded by Robinson, they may still be able to make a push for the playoffs.
