Sean Payton had awesome way of motivating Saints for Super Bowl run
The New Orleans Saints are one of the Super Bowl favorites, and just to drive home the point, head coach Sean Payton had a bold way of motivating his side.
Payton wheeled in the Lombardi Trophy on Tuesday along with $225,000 in cash — each player’s Super Bowl bonus — and told his players to win three games if they wanted it.
Coach then said: “Y’all want this???”
“Win 3 F’n games.”
The locker room erupted. $225k is each player’s SB bonus. #WHODAT

It may sound like a tall tale, but Saints running back Mark Ingram confirmed that it happened.

Payton’s players will love that, and they should. Of course, rivals who have already jawed with the Saints coach this season will probably have something to say about it, too.
