New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton is pulling out all the stops to try and prepare his team for their upcoming playoff game against the Seattle Seahawks. First, he had the Seahawks logo painted on the practice field because he was ”trying to create the exact environment.”

The Seahawks crowd has been known to get loud and they’ve set the record for the loudest crowd twice this season. In order to replicate that, Payton has been pumping in crowd noise on speakers to replicate “the exact environment.”
Sean Payton says the team blew out two speakers trying to simulate Seattle’s crowd noise.

It isn’t a unique approach to preparing for a game, though I haven’t heard of a coach blowing out multiple speakers.
