It’s always a great sign for the status of the team when the squad’s starting quarterback is on the sideline absolutely torching a teammate.
It’s not completely clear why Winston was so pissed, but usually when an athlete loses his cool like this, it’s not just one thing.
Issues build up and then there’s an explosion.
Sean Payton and Jameis Winston both jumped all over Tre’Quan Smith on the sideline after that last third down play. Not sure what it was about, but it got very heated. Emotions high here in the fourth quarter.

Luckily, the Saints got the win and the blowup didn’t really have much of an impact. Winning solves everything and losing makes everything worse.
The Saints didn’t have to experience the latter Monday night, and Winston said the verbal exchange was “just communication,” according to Nick Underhill.

We’ll see if these two hug it out in the future, but something clearly went wrong Monday night.
