The Sean Payton era in Denver is already kicking off with the new head coach digging into his job.
While Payton has been away from coaching for one season, he’s already getting back into the groove.
During his interview, he let people know his coaching philosophy with the Denver Broncos and their roster.
For the veteran head coach, it’s all about evaluating players.
“The No. 1 job for us as coaches in evaluating our players is [to find out] what do they do really well and try to put them in those positions. That’s the starting point.”

While the focus starts on quarterback Russell Wilson, he will also examine the other players on the Broncos roster.
His philosophy is playing to the strengths of each player, something that gets lost with some coaches.
While those coaches focus on the flaws they find with players, Payton shows his coaching experience by having the willingness to work on players’ strengths.
He understands how every player has a unique skill set and can excel in certain positions.
While other coaches might keep weaker players in the wrong position, Payton finds their strengths and applies those strengths to the correct position.
This coaching philosophy has allowed him to find outstanding success as an NFL head coach with the New Orleans Saints.
His 15 seasons of coaching the Saints saw him winning the NFC South seven times, while winning one Super Bowl.
He also has nine seasons of playoff appearances, showing why his philosophy can easily work in Denver.
With him and his plan in place, he can turn around a franchise that hasn’t been the same since Super Bowl 50.NEXT: Sean Payton Is Not Allowing Special Treatment In Denver
