Robbie Anderson tweet

Sometimes you just have to go with what a player gives you in terms of scrutiny. Blame doofus Darnold all you want, but hardly any (if any) team has an elite QB, an elite line, an elite coaching staff, and elite WRs and TEs. And if they do, their WRs better not drop anything. So, did Robbie make the best out of what he was given ... or would a better WR have been able to do better in the same spot? Drops are drops, man.

He had 2 good years, one in 2017 and 2020 and thinks he is the poo. If anything, 2020  was an aberration. One good year every 4 seasons isnt going to cut it.

Anderson has had more than two good years, especially considering his circumstances. He has never been a WR1, but has been leaned upon as such for a marked part of his career. Furthermore, his entire career up until last year has been pretty good, especially for a UDFA who wasn't expected to make the team, much less survive so many years in the NFL. He is a legit NFL receiver and his career is a testimony to that fact.

Drops are drops, but Robby (Robbie or however he decides to spell it) has historically not had a huge problem with drops until 2021, and it was really one week that skewed the stats at that. No one was complaining about Anderson putting the ball on the turf until last season. It was likely in his head. He was obviously pressing. I don't understand why a sensible football fan doesn't appear to understand that situation. Take away the one week, and he's likely middle of the pack. I can see if he continues to drop an inordinate number of balls in the coming season, then perhaps all this hate will be justified to a degree, but until then it's just ragging on a seemingly eccentric and introspective dude because he makes for an easy target for more conservative-minded individuals.

Why all the Robbie hate? I just don’t get some fans at times. He can put up good numbers. When you have sorry QBs throwing you the ball, your numbers will suffer. 

He's all drama. He's a high maintenance fella. And it's gotten boring.

In all honesty, we should be worried about his mental health. This sport has proven year after year that is really fugs with your mental health. 

I knew this post was coming. I think we need to wait until he commits a crime before we fabricate excuses for idiotic behavior.

I am curious to see how this thread goes in relation to who is more vocally critical of Robby and if they are also simultaneously in the "you negative complainers need to stop criticizing Matt Rhule 24/7" camp. Because we know it wasn't all Scott Fitterer's idea to build our roster around two New York Jets (lol) cast-offs.

A lot of it isn’t so much the player.  It’s the organization.  

use Sam.  Sam is Sam.  If Carolina had let him get cut, gave up zero draft picks, gave him a Bill/Trubisky deal and had him being the backup entering last season.  He doesn’t get the harsh treatment.  We gave up a bunch of picks, paid him, and made him the man.   Expectations then get high. 

Carolina overpaid Robbie.  He was a bigger cap hit than Diggs, Adams and those types of legit monsters.   So Carolina alters the expectation for him.  Which isn’t really Robbie’s fault.  He is what he is.  But he took the check.  And the check comes with expectations.
