“Marshawn almost cried when he saw Mike Rob walk in" (link)

The Essential Online Seahawks Fan Forum Community. There simply is NO substitute. RATING: PG-13
  • I know, another MikeRob post, but he's worth it and the other one has gotten 12 pages long and has drifted.

    To be honest, I got a little emotional when MikeRob got back, and especially after reading this article.

    "o the leather tool belt that his teammates gave Robinson a few years ago to acknowledge the veteran fullback’s workman-like approach to his thankless role – making lead blocks for Lynch – is back where it belongs: Hanging in his locker at Virginia Mason Athletic Center."

    "But it also was rooted in the illness he was battling, which caused his weight to drop from 245 pounds to 212 and put him in the hospital a couple of times."

    So all those saying that it looked like Mike had lost weight when they saw him on TV may have been correct. It is sooooo good to have him back in the fold.

  • It's good to finally hear how the front office handled Mrob's cutting...

    "Pete (Carroll, the coach) and John (Schneider, the general manager), they did a great job of communicating with me. They were very upfront when they were cutting me. We were in there talking and they said, ‘Mike, we know it’s going to come a point down the line when you’re going to be healthy and we’re probably going to need you. If the opportunity presents itself, we’re going to come get you. You’re part of the family. You’re part of us. You helped us start this thing.’"

    Go hawks!

  • I cannot find the link right now but in one of the articles it also mentioned that Robinson is going to be Lynch's roommate for the rest of the season :)

    2 weeks from when? Because IIRC he had a visit with the Titans and didn't catch on.

    There's a lot that was not public about his illness and I was surprised about how much was in this article. I think there is some things we will never know about that situation. MRob ended up in the hostpital and we'll never know how serious it was, but it sounded very serious, maybe life threatening. But none of that really matters because he's back and he's healthy.

    And I could easily see Marshawn getting emotional, those 2 have a very close bond and in Richard Sherman's blog about coming in and seeing Mike's locker cleared out, there was some disappointment there.

    Players keep saying "It's just a business," but that's just a standard response to interviewers who are looking for something more. Almost every interview I've ever heard from retired players they are always saying "I miss the camaraderie the most."

    Those guys grow close out there and the do get emotional, just look at Red Bryant running off the field in Houston. He said he was crying partially because of the way they won and partially because their dear friend got hurt.

    I think that sounds a little demeaning to Marshawn actually. Shawn is on pace to rush for 1300 this year without Robinson playing a single snap. I agree that MRob is likely going to help Shawn play a little bit better going forward, but Shawn hardly needs him to succeed...

    He said It took two weeks from the time he got "back to normal". Nothing was said about how long getting " back to normal" took.

  • Just watched the NFL films clip on him linked from the Seahawks.com post.

    There's a great quote from him when he got cut from the Niners, but it also has a nickname for him - "The Handyman."

  • I am really glad about MikeRob being back and I don't see anything wrong with Marshawn having an emotional attachment to what is basically his best friend. A best friend that he almost lost due to health issues. I'm an emotional person, and while I'm not quite Dick Vermeil emotional, I have no qualms about showing them. I've been a big Seahawks fan for a long time and I got really upset when Ken Hamlin took a sign to the skull, and when Walter Jones retired, that was a biggie for me. Yes, I am that attached to my team.

    And if I were on a team such as this where everyone is very tight, and the man that I spend the most time with ends up in the ER with the possibility of dying, I would be very emotional. And then to see that man walk through the door in good health, back on the team, back to my partner in crime, I'm sure I would have tears, I'd probably try to hide them, but they would be there.

    I'm not in that kind of situation, but I can imagine the kind of emotions going through that locker room to have Michael Robinson get deathly ill, cut from the team, then to see him suiting up again to go out on the field with, phenomenal.

    So I don't want anyone to misunderstand my thread title or that I might say such a thing in a derogatory way, to the contrary, I have the utmost respect for people who are confident enough to express their feelings.
