Game Recaps

2012 Week 7 vs SF (1 / 2 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 12 / 0 rec)

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.

2012 Week 8 vs DET (1 / 2 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 6 / 0 rec)

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.

2012 Week 9 vs MIN (3 / 2 / 0 rush, 3 / 2 / 22 / 0 rec)

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.

2012 Week 12 vs MIA (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 4 / 1 rec)

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.

2012 Week 13 vs CHI (1 / 4 / 0 rush, 2 / 2 / 17 / 0 rec)

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.

2012 Week 14 vs ARI (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 12 / 0 rec)

Robinson's sole involvement on offense was a successfully reception in the flat. Robinson had separation and gained yards after the catch.

2012 Week 15 vs BUF (1 / 29 / 0 rush, 2 / 1 / 20 / 0 rec)

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.

2012 Week 17 vs STL (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 3 / 3 / 33 / 1 rec)

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.

2012 Week 18 vs WAS (1 / 3 / 0 rush, 3 / 2 / 23 / 1 rec)

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.


2012 Week 19 vs ATL (1 / -1 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

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.

2011 Week 8 vs CIN (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 11 / 0 rec)

Robinson was a blocker for the most part of the day, but had a nice run after the catch in the third quarter. He took a short dump pass and was able to bull his way for a first down.

2011 Week 12 vs WAS (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 7 / 0 rec)

Robinson had a short catch out of the backfield and did not show much in the way of speed or moves on the play.

2011 Week 13 vs PHI (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 4 / 4 / 41 / 0 rec)

Robinson four receptions matched his totals for the season, mainly used as a relief valve for Jackson when pressured. He did a great job as a lead blocker for Lynch all night.

2011 Week 15 vs CHI (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 2 / 1 / 2 / 1 rec)

Robinson is not a regular contributor, but once in a while he sneaks one in. He made his three yard score look nice and easy as he swung to the right while most of the defense bit on the fake handoff to the left.

2010 Week 2 vs DEN (1 / 15 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 7 / 0 rec)

Robinson impressed in a very limited role. He could become a threat to Julius Jones' playing time.

2010 Week 4 vs STL (1 / 3 / 0 rush, 3 / 1 / 4 / 0 rec)

Robinson got involved on a gadget play when he threw back across the field to Leon Washington after Hasselbeck hit him with a backwards pass, but otherwise his effect on the game and touches were minimal.

2010 Week 7 vs ARI (1 / 3 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 7 / 0 rec)

Saw a couple touches but largely will not be used much.

2010 Week 14 vs SF (3 / 33 / 0 rush, 2 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Robinson was quite active in this game against his former team, and had his share of chances, but ultimately showed why he is a career backup as the game wore on. On the plus side, he ran with power up the middle, and had a big gain on a direct snap that confused the defense. But as a receiver, Robinson let the ball slip through his fingers for an interception.

2010 Week 16 vs TB (1 / 3 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Robinson made his presence felt, taking the snap on a 4th and inches play from the 4 yard line, a "QB" sneak. He was initially stopped but managed to roll away from the pile to get the first down. Robinson is purely a role player for the team, but seems to deliver when called upon.

2009 Week 9 vs TEN (1 / -1 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 4 / 0 rec)

Michael Robinson was the third RB on the depth chart for the 49ers in Week 9 and he worked mostly as a kick returner, but he entered the game when Glen Coffee had to leave (concussion) and had two touches on the first drive of the fourth quarter. If Coffee misses extended time, Robinson becomes a handcuff to Frank Gore.

2009 Week 10 vs CHI (1 / 4 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 4 / 0 rec)

RB Michael Robinson backed up Frank Gore in Week 10, coming in on a few plays when Gore started to show some signs of getting tired. He made a nice stumbling catch and rolled forward for a first down with under four minutes to play, keeping the 49ers in control of the ball until late in the contest. Robinson will move back down to third on the depth chart once Glen Coffee rebounds from his concussion.

2009 Week 15 vs PHI (1 / -1 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Michael Robinson stepped in for a dinged Glen Coffee (hamstring) to run the ball once in the third quarter for a one-yard loss.

2009 Week 16 vs DET (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 3 / 1 / 4 / 0 rec)

Robinson had one short check-down reception near the end of the first half that he took for a short four-yard gain. Other than that, he was a non-factor in this game.

2008 Week 6 vs PHI (1 / 5 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 12 / 0 rec)

RB Michael Robinson took a direct snap on one play but it was called back due to a false start. Robinson also took a handoff and lateraled the ball to RB Frank Gore as he rounded the corner.

2008 Week 7 vs NYG (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 2 / 2 / 26 / 0 rec)

Robinson caught both of his targets, as he spelled Gore occasionally on third downs. He had no carries.

2008 Week 8 vs SEA (3 / 9 / 0 rush, 2 / 2 / 14 / 0 rec)

2008 Week 10 vs ARI (3 / 8 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Robinson lined up in the wildcat formation a few times. He ran the ball three of the four times, the other being a direct snap to Frank Gore. Robinson surprisingly got a call on the goal line with no time left on the clock and failed to get into the end zone.

2008 Week 11 vs STL (3 / 11 / 0 rush, 3 / 2 / 54 / 0 rec)

Robinson had six touches in this game, and he contributed a ten yard run and two catches for 54 yards. He was also dropped for a loss trying to punch in the ball from the one yard line.

2008 Week 12 vs DAL (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 3 / 3 / 7 / 0 rec)

Used primarily as the fullback in the offense, Robinson did not have a single rushing attempt and only had three targets, all in the first half. His limited use was a direct result of the team falling behind early and having to pass the ball to try and get back in the game.

2008 Week 14 vs NYJ (2 / 5 / 0 rush, 2 / 1 / 13 / 0 rec)

Robinson had minimal involvement in the offense.

2008 Week 15 vs MIA (5 / 8 / 0 rush, 4 / 4 / 33 / 0 rec)

2008 Week 16 vs STL (1 / 2 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

2007 Week 3 vs PIT (2 / 8 / 0 rush, 1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

2007 Week 8 vs NO (2 / 6 / 0 rush, 3 / 3 / 43 / 0 rec)

Robinson showed great burst at the line of scrimmage, and fought hard for a couple of first downs. He was the main beneficiary off the bench when Gore was taken out of the game briefly.

2007 Week 9 vs ATL (17 / 67 / 0 rush, 2 / 2 / 2 / 0 rec)

In the absence of Frank Gore, Robinson got the nod as the starter, but also split carries with Maurice Hicks. On the touchdown drive, it was Robinson getting all the carries, but then they put Hicks in when they got to around the ten yard line and promptly scored a TD. Though Hicks had a better average per carry, Robinson continued to get the lion's share of the carries as the game went on.

The rookie runner and former Penn State quarterback carried the ball one time for one yard.

2006 Week 3 vs PHI (5 / 29 / 2 rush, 3 / 2 / 3 / 0 rec)

Robinson was the big surprise of the day. He came in the game for an injured Frank Gore, and showed a lot of power as he broke a Brain Dawkins tackle for his first touchdown. Dawkins was by far the most effective player in the Eagles' secondary and Robinson plowed over him. After treatment on the field, Dawkins remained on the sidelines but did not return to the game. Robinson also added another one yard score. He ran hard, as he broke many tackles and showed a lot of effort as he picked up 29 yards on five carries, several of those yards coming on second effort chances.

2006 Week 4 vs KC (4 / 13 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Robinson became a hot pick-up after the previous week as a possible goal line substitution for Frank Gore. The 49ers never got close to the Chiefs' goal line and Robinson saw limited duty as an occasional replacement at running back for Gore.

2006 Week 5 vs OAK (12 / 21 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Robinson spelled starting RB Frank Gore sporadically through the game. He also saw multiple short yardage carries including three carries inside the Raiders five yard line. Robinson didn't have much of a chance on his carries as he was hit in the backfield repeatedly.

2006 Week 6 vs SD (1 / 2 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

The Penn State rookie had one carry for two yards.

2006 Week 8 vs CHI (1 / -4 / 0 rush, 3 / 2 / 7 / 0 rec)

2006 Week 9 vs MIN (3 / 3 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 5 / 0 rec)

Robinson only had three yards rushing. On a third down play in the first quarter, he had a tough two yard run where he broke a couple of tackles to gain a first down on a drive that eventually led to a 49ers' field goal.

2006 Week 10 vs DET (5 / 4 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
