Sean Payton’s Philly roots

Payton is very familiar with the intensity of that Philly fan base, having also spent time as an assistant coach with the NFC rival New York Giants and Dallas Cowboys for seven years before coming to New Orleans.

Payton had a great passage in his 2010 book, “Home Team,” where he recalled giving players a vivid and accurate description of what they would encounter during their first trip to Philadelphia as the visiting team in 2009.

He said he gained credibility with the players by correctly predicting that the fourth team bus would be pelted by eggs -- two of which he insisted came from a boy who was probably about 9 years old.

“Going into Philadelphia is the antithesis of going to a place like Green Bay with all their bratwurst hospitality,” Payton wrote in the book. “The Philadelphia welcome to a visiting football fan is more like: 'We really don't [expletive] want to see you on game day.' It's even worse for an away team that has come to Philly for a game.”

Payton recalled telling players, “These people are masters at being miserable. These are the people who boo Santa Claus.”
