Allen Robinson reacts to national anthem comments made by Drew Brees

New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees is under fire Wednesday after offering his opinion about players kneeling during the national anthem. In case you missed it, here's what Brees said:

Bears players responded too, including Allen Robinson, who offered this opinion on Twitter:

Robinson wasn't the only Bear (both past and present) who was offended by Brees.

We'll update this post as more Bears players react.

10 Chicago Bears who were 'one-season wonders'

 

In a sports sense, what defines a “one-season wonder?”

Is it, statistically speaking, one great season followed by several mediocre ones? Or simply one solitary out-of-this-world game? Is it a fantastic rookie season followed by a never-ending sophomore slump? It could be all of those.

But “one-season wonder” may not be the pejorative term you may be thinking. It could be, literally, the one season an athlete had playing for a team—which was bookended by either a trade of a free agency pickup/release.

Allen Robinson fires back at LaDainian Tomlinson over consistency comments

So, apparently the NFL Network employs former running back LaDainian Tomlinson now. And apparently LaDainian Tomlinson was asked about the Bears. And apparently LaDainian Tomlinson thinks that, for some reason, the team's wide receiver group is the biggest question mark? And that Allen Robinson – the same Allen Robinson who had at least 5 catches in 14 of the Bears' 16 games last season – needs to be more consistent? 

Anyway, I'll let you guess what Allen Robinson thinks about all this:
