Nicks did his best to downplay the incident after the game.
"Man, I don't even remember what happened to be honest," Nicks told the Times-Picayune. "It was in the heat of the moment, I just lost my temper. I don't even remember what it was all about. It's just frustration about losing and that's about it.
"Emotions got the best of me," Nicks added. "I apologize for making myself look dumb. I'll never do something like that again."
Brees bristled when asked if the yelling match between Nicks and Kromer could be an omen for future division.
"We've got a good team," Brees said. "We've got guys who are passionate about the game, emotional, want to win. There are obviously fiery moments all the time. I'm not worried about anybody turning on anybody. That's not our team; that's not the kind of guys we have or the kind of coaches."
