Laurent Robinson's stat lines for every game Miles Austin did not play in:
9/26 vs Redskins: 3 rec, 49 yards, 0 TDs.
10/2 vs Detroit: 7 rec, 116 yards, 0 TDs.
11/13 vs Buffalo: 3 rec, 73 yards, 2 TDs.
11/20 vs Redskins: 4 rec, 34 yards, 1 TD.
11/24 vs Miami: 7 rec, 79 yards, 2 TDs.
12/4 vs Arizona: 4 rec, 72 yards, 0 TDs.
He broke 100 yards 1 time when Miles was out. So, how exactly is that huge and productive? He's got some decent games in there, and he's also got a couple of stinkers. In addition, he's playing against the #2 corner of these teams. Who among those teams has a good #2 corner? Heck, who has a good #1 corner?
None of these teams scream great pass defense, or even good pass defense.
And you are forgetting- he had Tony Romo throwing to him. Probably the most underrated QB in the NFL. With Blaine Gabbert throwing to him, asking him to be the #1 WR for your team is most definitely a gamble.
