I'm sure this happened. Like I'm certain Harry Potter is real.

Wasn't there an alleged "stack of cash" involved in the bounty scandal? I refuse to put the word "Gate" after every scandal. Hell, if it happened today it would have been "The Watergate Gate" scandal!! STUPID Media! (Isn't that a redundant statement?)

Hold on here. What in the hell is the big deal? I have no doubt Payton did exactly what Gruden said he did. Why not? There is nothing wrong with it in any way. It is not against any NFL rules to demonstrate what can be earned by stacking cash money out there. Nor is it morally wrong to do the same. Nor is it in any way legally wrong to show an example of what you will honestly receive if you win the game.

There is no negative interpretation to the halftime demonstration. Gruden was simply giving an example of what makes Payton so great at motivation.

The dumbass writer tried to make a horrible analogy based off a positive story.

I'm sure there were other things he mentioned as well in his motivational speech, not just the money side of things!

The fact that when you are playing in the Superbowl, everyone of your family, friends, neighbours etc are going to be watching you and saying thats my Husband/Dad/Brother/Uncle/Neighbour out there and they will be watching your every move! That alone would make me want to bring back that lovely big silver Trophy and make them all proud of me and my team!

Hey! The money is good too though!

GEAUX SAINTS!!

Gruden was not criticizing Payton for the money demonstration. He was praising Payton for a great motivational ploy. There are very few, if any, out there that are bigger Sean Payton fans than John Gruden. There was absolutely no negative connotation in anything that Gruden said ... at all.

Re: Jon Gruden says how Sean Payton used stack of cash as Super Bowl motivator

I think you all are missing the point. It was a motivation speech to the players. Each player get a bonus from the NFL for playing in the play off games and the Super Bowl game it is a fact. Even though bonus isn't the correct word because your contract pays you for the regular season games - doesn't pay you for anything outside of that. NFL kicks in the bonus to pay you for play offs and SB. So using cash money to show them what they are playing for is nothing wrong or illegal about that it was motivation - this is what you are playing for!

I think the real gem is what was in Sean's book. Look at what they did to motivate and make the Colts feel like the away team. They put up billboards for the most like route the Colts would take to the hotels and practive field 'MIAMA is SAINTS COUNTRY. The presents that were left in the rooms of the players like clothes that they would then wear out on the town in front of the Colts players and families and then stay out an hour later than the Colts. Creating a total distraction for the Colts. All fair and game lol.
