The agent for Chicago Bears wide receiver Allen Robinson took to Twitter on Monday night to express his frustrations about playcalling during the game against the Minnesota Vikings, notably that his client wasn't getting the ball in a key situation.
“Throw 12 the Damn Ball in the Redzone! JUST ONCE! My goodness..” agent Brandon Parker tweeted.
The tweet came during a first-quarter drive in the Bears' 19-13 loss, which saw Chicago fail to convert several times with a first-and-goal opportunity on the 7-yard line. The Bears settled for a field goal in their lone trip to the red zone. Robinson made six catches for 43 yards on nine targets in the game.
“Should he not be the first read in the redzone 99% of the time?” Parker tweeted. “Only team in the league that won’t throw it to the WR1 in the redzone. Same guy who’s leading the league in contested catches.. What’s really going on?”

Robinson, who paces the Bears with 755 receiving yards on 63 catches, has been at odds with the organization over his contract; he is earning $13 million this year. Parker told ESPN in September that his client has not requested a trade.
On Monday night, Parker continued to tweet several more times, saying that he thought Nick Foles was is a "good QB" but the lack of red-zone targets has been a "head scratcher." According to NFLsavant.com, Robinson has been targeted nine times in the red zone this year, 44th in the league, with five catches.
The Bears had 149 yards of offense, and Parker said their fans "deserve better than this," before ending the night by saying that the blame doesn't rest on Foles.
"Prayers up to @NickFoles The lack of production isn’t on Nick. No qb could have success behind that OL. It’s a shame..," Parker tweeted.
