Sean Payton should make Saints rewatch 2017 NFC Playoff loss as motivation - Stephen A. | First Take

  • Published on Jan 10, 2019
  • Darren Woodson joins Stephen A. Smith and Max Kellerman of First Take to debate if New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton's motivational tactic for the team was over the top. Stephen A. suggests that instead of showing the team the Lombardi Trophy, a Super Bowl ring, and over $200k in cash, Payton should make every player watch the team’s heartbreaking 2017 NFC Playoff loss vs. the Minnesota Vikings again.

    AK dont need a damn tape "It's a certain point where you fucking just do everything could do, and shit still don't go your way," Kamara says about the game dubbed the Minneapolis Miracle. "That's how I felt about that game. I felt like we did everything. We came all the way back, and then shit just happened like that. That's like some one-in-a-million-type shit.

    "I couldn't even be mad. I was mad, of course, but it was like how does that even fucking happen? That's not even real. It's almost not realistic, like what the fuck?"

    Kamara says he got over the game fairly quickly but was frustrated to see the Vikings allow 38 unanswered points in a blowout loss to the Philadelphia Eagles, who defeated the New England Patriots two weeks later in Super Bowl 52.
    "We'd beat the shit out of [the Eagles] cause we was rolling," Kamara says. "If we won [versus Minnesota], I knew nobody was gonna stop us cause we came all the way back."

    The conversation gets Kamara excited for the upcoming season. He described 2017 as an "experiment" year for the Saints, and he believes everyone in the locker room knows what they are capable of accomplishing in 2018.

    "We know what the standard is," Kamara says before pausing for a few seconds. "So, yeah, fuck Minnesota."

    For me, seeing the money and Superbowl trophy would motivate me more. #1 that's the end goal. That's what this whole thing is about. #2 it's not like they forgot about last season, it was only a year ago, #3 that would do nothing but shame Marcus Williams and put him on the spot. You wanna build your players up and encourage them, not tear them down or humiliate them. JMO
