The Denver Broncos are going through a bit of a transition right here.
The post-Peyton Manning era has been complicated at Mile High, with the team struggling to find success offensively and a revolving door at quarterback.
Those issues were supposed to be a thing of the past with Russell Wilson’s arrival, but his first season at Empower Field was nothing short of a disaster.
That’s why the new ownership, the fans, and even the players expect veteran HC Sean Payton to straighten the ship and build some winning culture in Denver again.
Notably, they couldn’t have thought of a better guy for that kind of job, as Payton has been known for being quite meticulous about every single minor detail, as he believes everything counts.
The former New Orleans Saints HC even revealed he got the franchise to buy a $30,000 stereo during his days in the Big Easy so rival teams could hear them celebrate, one of the most hilarious admissions we’ve heard in quite a while:

“You can’t just say it’s only this that’s important, right? Everything matters,” Payton told the media. “How we traveled. How we celebrated in the locker room. We bought a $30,000 stereo system [for] ‘Club Dub.’ And we felt it was important, especially on the road, that everyone that could possibly hear our locker room celebrating, like, ‘What is going on in there?’ That is creating culture, with the right people [and] with the right details.”
Of course, that might sound silly or unimportant, but it’s the little details that help create some culture and will make the players run through a wall for their coach, their teammates, and their franchise.
Payton will have a tough time leading the Broncos in a division that also features the Kansas City Chiefs, Los Angeles Chargers, and Las Vegas Raiders.
But he’ll inherit one of the best defensive units in the league and a promising offensive core that just needs its QB to go back to his usual self to thrive.
It won’t be easy, but that’s why they hired one of the best in the league for that.NEXT: Sean Payton Continues To Build A Personalized Staff
