Culture has always been such a huge part of New Orleans Saints success. How players perform on the field is only one factor of a much larger equation. For the Saints, “fit” is much more than scheme and gameplan. It’s about a community of players, a family operating as one unit.
You will hear the phrase “buy in” a lot in today’s pro sports landscape. The need for players to buy in to a system. The need for a leader that can generate that buy in, in the case of the neighboring Pelicans. The Saints, particularly as of late, have found the product that incentivizes buy in: Culture.
