Brandon Browner wasn’t very happy after the New Orleans Saints’ overtime loss to the Tennessee Titans, to say the least.
The Saints cornerback apparently lost his cool and screamed profanities at WWL-TV reporter Lyons Yellin after he asked another player a question in the locker room Sunday. Yellin asked safety Jairus Byrd about a second-quarter interception opportunity for him and cornerback Keenan Lewis that turned into an insane touchdown by Titans tight end Delanie Walker instead.
Browner clearly didn’t like the question.
Yellin took to TV to explain the story — he actually downplayed it — and Browner refuted some of his points on Twitter.
It’s hard to disagree with Browner that he was in the wrong. It’s understandable that emotions run high after a loss, but Yellin’s question wasn’t even directed toward the former New England Patriot. Not to mention, Browner clearly didn’t take into account that Yellin’s question could have been a small part of a bigger story.
Based on Browner’s Twitter replies, it seems as though plenty of Saints fans didn’t support his actions, either, as they’re frustrated with a defense that has allowed at least 400 yards six times this season and the fact that the cornerback has been racking up penalties.
At the end of the day, though, all of the Saints — not just Browner — have to stay level-headed if they want to turn around their 4-5 season.
