2012 Game Summaries
Week 7 - Robinson's first involvement was a wide open reception in the flat off of play-action. Despite being wide open, Robinson did well to catch the ball and continue moving forward for the first down down the sideline. Robinson's only carry on the day came on third and one when he converted with ease.
Week 8 - FB Michael Robinson only had one carry, but it was a pivotal one, picking up a first down on the Seahawks’ final drive. Robinson also secured his lone target of the game, picking up six yards.
Week 9 - Robinson’s run on 4th down as a fullback option was snuffed out by the Minnesota defense. He was able to contribute in the passing game, catching an accurate pass on a play-action rollout. Robinson had no one near him and was able to run for a long gain.
Week 12 - The fullback caught a four-yard red zone screen pass from Russell Wilson to put Seattle up by seven points in the third quarter. It was his third career touchdown reception.
Week 13 - Robinson is Seattle’s power and short yardage back. However, he does have good hands and chipped in a couple receptions as well. His first catch wasn’t until near the end of the third quarter, and it was just a short four yard dump. In the 4th quarter, he came in on third and one, and plowed ahead into the pile for a big four yard run and a 1st down. In overtime, on second and 15, he took a short dump off up the right sideline for a big 13 yard gain. When he was about to be tackled, Robinson lowered his head and hit Tim Jennings so hard that he had to be taken out of the game.
Week 14 - Robinson’s sole involvement on offense was a successfully reception in the flat. Robinson had separation and gained yards after the catch.
Week 15 - Robinson only had one carry, coming on a fake punt and picked up 29 yards on the play. Robinson also had one catch, as Wilson booted right and found Robinson uncovered in the flat for a 20-yard gain.
Week 17 - Robinson had three catches, including one TD. With Wilson play faking and booting right, Robinson snuck into the flat on the fake. Uncovered, Wilson easily completed the short toss to the FB and he ran untouched into the end zone. CB Cortland Finnegan tried to meet Robinson at the goal line, but didn’t quite make it before Robinson blasted him just inside the end zone. Robinson followed the TD up with same play to open the following drive, picking up 19 yards.
Week 18 - Russell Wilson got significant media attention as a rookie quarterback returning home to the Mid-Atlantic, but he was not the only Richmond, Virginia native to put on a solid performance at FedEx Field. Robinson, the Seahawks’ fullback and former high school quarterback, also quieted the partisan crowd in Maryland. Robinson carried the ball once for three yard gain, and also caught two passes for twenty-three yards, including a four-yard touchdown reception. After piling up nineteen yards on a out route catch-and-run, the Seahawks dialed Robinson up three plays later on their first touchdown drive of the evening. Robinson ran an out route to the left side of the end zone, and, with Washington’s coverage completely busted – there was no defender even close to him – Russell Wilson flipped Robinson the ball for a four-yard Seahawks touchdown. Robinson’s touchdown catch was Seattle’s only score through the air in the team’s Wild Card weekend matchup.
Week 19 - The Seahawks dialed up their versatile fullback on a fourth-and-one deep in the Atlanta red zone in the second quarter, but the Falcons held Robinson to negative rushing yards, resulting in a turnover on downs.
