Welcome back to the Randy light show and as we've been discussing such a big big game for the Cowboys. Against the Philadelphia Eagles Saturday afternoon on Christmas seed. And the Cowboys I don't believe would be in the position they are. To play for a division championship if they hadn't discovered this fellow right here rob Robinson. Everybody's brand new favorite whom nobody ever heard of but everybody loves and. Out of Brady when things for comfort you in that experiment you know first of all we're gonna give a little wardrobe. Props we have to or Martellus -- clothing line rocket -- That you get the cut from Martellus for represented his line on television I'm right now we're at work trying to get a job and deal with them you know and having him represent about rocket built right now very good needed to pay for pitchers acknowledge it I would say yeah that's -- step example of that right we'll look. In what we. Same of your work watch this segue if what we've seen of your work is a sample of the career of Colorado Robinson to come then. Then this is good stuff and I think that all cowboy fans are so happy that you showed up on the doorstep. Are you surprised at all at the success you've had the statistics and the way you kind of just fit seamlessly into the office. Yeah a little bit you know I just came as a situation you know has a probable player houses win Tony and in a great commitment and then there is -- now I understand the commitment. It's helped contribute anyway I can't foresee some injuries happened in that I was able to step in and make some plays and just showing up in San -- -- Well you have done an excellent job and you know. When you first came and you know we don't know what to expect in the last specialist guy out there. Robin -- -- make a big play as the -- you have been a -- -- breath of fresh air supporters football. I agree with Brett. Had you not played as good did you played I don't think we would be in the position as that we York make him just play -- front. Yeah thank you Manny and understand that just take -- of opportunity you know my agents did a good jab in here in the situation and -- -- -- take full advantage of and let them make plays and have fun that is low and on the start everyday at practice and he's got a good feel and in my heart play over the death. What else we're we're gonna -- it -- a little bit about half step back big picture let everyone who has as far as a lot of people know. You arrived on earth and wearing number 81 of the Dallas Cowboys -- we all -- that that is not exactly simple to take us back a little bit college. And then being drafted third round pick by the Atlanta Falcons obviously. They saw some good things that you probably thought you were going to be doing. In an Atlanta uniform what you're doing now but about five years ago so go back to college in Canada walkers through. -- college you know I've had a great career at Illinois State igniting it recruit a lot. Most of that minute call mistakes there -- my brother the previous year. You know they took him on the visit and there they -- -- -- on videotape and I guess they are committed to -- my visit and then. And I had a great time -- -- state. May set some records of their mentioned you had a great season and like 86 catches. Fourteen under 65 yards and he does is Roland and in my senior cat that banged up a little bit in them a little bit and that legitimately injured yeah. Ankle injury. And now. -- is able to go to become mine and so as a duo that I can do it and easily. So yeah. You have -- -- some hamstring issues or some leg issues in Atlanta. And Atlanta area has some hamstring and Tom missed my Seattle up and you know after that it was pretty much impossible for to get back on the field. Now you went from there to the Rams and it did every step along the way he's thinking OK I know what ability I had in college and what got me here if I'm healthy I know what I'm gonna do was -- -- kind of mindset all along. Yeah I'm not a cocky person but I am confident myself enough elect I can make them make plays you have to like had a billion -- with the the weapon when matchup and now when I went that. -- from Atlanta Saint Louis. I was coming into mountain Americans and big plays and pass on to be the go to guy out there and then that. Had a season and it in the ankle and figure injury tore my ligaments and broke a stimulant. You know just the tough thing tougher to swallow at the start not so strong and and in the next in a fourth in the league now I just wasn't really myself you know my ankle injury wasn't really following here that I felt like and and I noticed that is really give me the ball that much so. Then out of the -- really help me out. -- is the luck I have need to get some time to rest. I went to see down best doctor in a -- I think doctor just Andelman Minnesota that's down. Larry FitzGerald guy that he -- -- -- -- on so I was able to go see him or -- Larry FitzGerald and just learn some stuff from from him and just just have now -- And were you surprised at San Diego didn't keep you. I took his -- I actually thought I did a good job San Diego. And then make all the plays they wanted to make him practice -- in the pre game but in my last week's game kind of showed up and was playing like myself again a -- Tampa and he knows the numbers game with department not employ it -- congress -- of -- doing that of the practice reps and stuff and I know fortunately enough I was released and we brought him to death. I want so with Miles Austin on the field and Dez Bryant on the field you're still fine in the football for the football spine and you and some of that. Has got to be the relationship can get with Tony Romo. Your head coach describes you as a quarterback friendly receiver which is mostly because of the way you run routes it's -- under. Developed. Aspect of the receiving game can you talk a little bit about what you've established with Tony in the importance of learning how to run around the right way. Artists because well I guess early on my career you know just trying to listen code -- -- -- -- and just run around exactly -- -- they tell me tournaments I'm coming down -- the bonds mean the ball and don't let it come to you to be friendly to the ball. I think say and this can't -- you know in the Quebec love when you pitch in practice so they feel comfortable and confident and you in the game that they in this though it your way you can make a play. Like that that you would I mean it's very average right off the start you and Tony seem like you had a chemistry. That worked and you know right away you could tell he had confidence that you were gonna run right route -- where you're supposed to be. And when he throws the ball to you -- make the -- so. That's important and then like we said you are doing a great job and and hopefully have a chance continued to do this for awhile longer. I mean that's that's the thing you know we've been on the same page from day one I don't even. I can explain it either I just caught one of -- connections. We're -- -- front -- -- I don't know but a lot of Ryder cleared out but I'd go to Minnesota and that's. Qualifying was might not think he's yeah he's doing good you know they asked of them on. All I know it's four touchdowns in four years nine touchdowns so far. In this season you weren't even in training camp with this team so it's it's great. And it's great the way you've worked with your teammates -- that time. To touch -- two more things real quick and -- tremendously strong bond with your mother. She's an inspiration to you to spend a few seconds tell us a little bit about some of the strength that you have gained from -- Oh yeah I'm she's she's a tough one notion grownup whose attacks are you know that's hard got my speed from so.
