Did you guys hear about Payton's motivational ploy?

On the Fox pregame, they said that Payton handed each player an envelope Friday night, and told them not to open it until they got to their hotel rooms. When the players opened the envelope, it contained the iteniary for the trip to Chicago next week!! To quote the Guiness beer commercial:

"Iteniary for Chicago???...........Brilliant!!"

Just found a small snippet online:

PAYTON'S FORTUNE-TELLING: Saints head coach Sean Payton pulled an interesting little motivational tool on Friday night. As his players were leaving their meeting room the coach gave each guy an envelope but implored them not to open them until they each got to their respective rooms.

Once in seclusion the players opened the envelopes only to find their itinerary for next week's game in Chicago. How's that for making a pair of predictions? In the itinerary Payton included that Chicago would beat Seattle and what the team's exact schedule would be when it got past Philly.

At the bottom here:
