New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton has used many methods to motivate his team during his 10 years with the organization. This one, as told by Jon Gruden, might be a new one.

Gruden, in a Q&A with Men's Fitness posted Thursday, recalled how Payton motivated his team as it marched toward Super Bowl 44 six years ago, when a local bank helped Payton remind his players about the large payout from the NFL for winning the Super Bowl that season.

Asked by Men's Fitness about what makes a great halftime speech, Gruden said the following:

"You try to say a few words about how the team will never be together again. The way free agency, the draft, and everything impacts rosters and coaching staffs, nothing stays the same.

"Or, when Sean Payton was on his mission toward their Super Bowl [with the New Orleans Saints], he had one of the local banks come in and lay out a hundred grand in cash: 'This is what you're playing for per man.'"

If even true, this happened in 2009 so I don't care what/if anything happens from Gruden's story. Joe Thiesman said something about wanting to win the Super Bowl for the extra payout. Payton was just smart enough to get a local. bank to supply the funds. This just proves money talks and bull**** walks

It is a professional sport and they do play for money, don't they? I use to show my kids hundred dollar bills to get them excited about earning a little money, #shrug. Only thing Sean was guilty of is 'motivational parenting', IMO, .

What's this "hundred dollar bill" you speak of? I've never heard of such a thing...

In actual reply to all this...I think it's weird that he showed them money. JMO. I'd rather he talk about how they should be playing for their team, for their families, for something else other than money.

The players are rich enough lol. But I guess whatever motivates them. I'm not going to argue with the man's method...they won the Superbowl.
