Impressive Plays and Learning Experiences
In his debut season with the Atlanta Falcons, rookie Cordarrelle Robinson showcased his talent and made some memorable plays. Against the Carolina Panthers, Robinson caught a pass from Desmond Ridder and sprinted to the end zone, displaying his instinctual moves. He also made a dazzling run, juking past defenders for a first down. Reflecting on these plays, Robinson told Fox News Digital, “Most of the stuff that I did was just off of instinct… that’s a pretty special play right there.”
Robinson revealed that his outstanding performances on the field were a result of intense practice and preparation. He credited his coach for putting him in challenging situations during practice, which allowed him to be ready for anything during games. The rookie receiver expressed his belief that the way he performed in practice directly translated to his success during actual games.
A Season of Highs and Lows
Despite the Falcons finishing the season with a 7-10 record for the third consecutive year, Robinson had a positive outlook on his first year in the NFL. He was nominated for NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year, which was a testament to his impactful contributions to the team.
Reflecting on the season, Robinson acknowledged the learning experiences that came with both the highs and lows. He emphasized the importance of patience and understanding that everything happens for a reason. He also highlighted the need to stay present during both the good and challenging moments, recognizing that the NFL is a tough league regardless of an individual’s talent. Robinson expressed gratitude for the opportunity to use his natural abilities on the field and build relationships with his teammates.
Looking Ahead to the Super Bowl
Robinson recently spoke to Fox News Digital about his involvement with and promotion of “The Ultimate Upgrade” contest. He unveiled the Super Bowl Suite at Allegiant Stadium, where two lucky fans will get the chance to spend the night before the Super Bowl on February 11.
As the NFL season comes to a close, Robinson’s reflections on his first year in the league serve as a reminder of the ups and downs that come with being a professional athlete.
