Turns Out Jameis Winston Went Rogue & Called A Fake Victory Formation For A Saints TD Against The Falcons

Jameis Winston doing his best to become a New Orleans legend.

The New Orleans Saints and the Atlanta Falcons game ended in fireworks after the Saints lined up in a victory formation on 1st and goal at the Falcons 1-yard line, only for backup QB Jameis Winston to hand the ball off to Jamaal Winston for a touchdown.

The Saints running up the score seemed to irritate Falcons head coach Arthur Smith, who had a heated exchange with Saints coach Dennis Allen at midfield after the game:

“That’s f*cking b*llshit.”

Of course Saints fans didn’t think so. In a heated rivalry like this one, you want to score every play. Run it up. Stick a dagger through their hearts. Show no mercy.

And with fans already irritated with Dennis Allen, it actually had Who Dat Nation praising their coach, for maybe the first time all season.

But that was short lived, because after the game, Allen revealed that it was actually the players themselves who called the play.

During his postgame press conference, Allen apologized for the fake TD, and said that it was a decision made by the players to try to get Williams a touchdown:

And Saints players confirmed that it was Jameis who made the decision to run the fake:

Addressing his role in calling the play, Jameis called it a “collective decision.”

A collective decision to override his head coach. That’s legend sh*t from Jameis right there.

Of course the quarterback doesn’t really have much to lose. It’s likely his last game in the black and gold anyway. But Jameis somehow managed to not cement his place in the hearts of Saints fans forever, but also send one last parting shot to Allen on his way out.

Like I said, LEGEND.

Now, as a Saints fan I’m a little concerned that Dennis Allen has so little respect from his team that they just overrule him like that. And I really hate that Allen apologized for running up the score.

But I’m also thankful to Jameis for giving us one last gift if this is really his last game in New Orleans.

Thanks King – go eat that W.
