3 things we learned from Sean Payton’s introductory presser
By Jordan Lopez
The Denver Broncos introduced their 20th head coach in franchise history Monday afternoon as Sean Payton talked for the first time in Dove Valley.
Payton is a Super Bowl XLIV champion and has an excellent career-winning record as the head coach for the New Orleans Saints. He did a phenomenal job with Drew Brees as his quarterback and will aim to have the same success with Russell Wilson in Denver.
Broncos Country got to listen to Payton for the first time as the Broncos HC and the introductory presser was interesting. To hear from CEO Greg Penner to GM George Paton, there were a lot of exciting nuggets said at the presser.
To break it all down, here are the three things we learned at the introductory presser announcing Sean Payton, the 2006 AP Coach of the Year, as the new head coach of the Denver Broncos.
The most important thing to Sean Payton was the ownership group
When Sean Payton got to the podium to talk, the first and last thing we would mention was the terrific ownership group.
The teamwork and alignment from the ownership group to him was the most important aspect for him and it is a huge reason why he chose Denver. Payton mentioned how the Saints provided a great example of what it should be and he saw that with Greg Penner, Rob Walton, and the rest of the group.
He knew the ownership group was special on the first day. He said, “The first day I could be interviewed, Greg, George, and Condi were there at breakfast time. I knew that meant something.”
Payton learned a lot through Bill Parcells and having alignment from top to bottom is crucial. Having that lead to success and a winning culture, something he mentioned a lot in his presser for Broncos Country.
