Ok, listen up guys, and gals. It's Thursday morning about 10:30 or so. Although there has been some good smack, albeit few and far between, can we get past how 'loud' your stadium is? We know about loudness, heck we just got done beating a team in a 'loud' stadium.

So, unless you guys come up with something else, the Jag fans are gonna have to go back over to the tacks board to actually look for good smack.

The Raiders committed 7 or 8 false starts in the game they lost to the Texans here at Reliant Stadium. Unless your Gary Coleman look-a-like has a loud voice, he will not be heard either. I expect the Jags will have several false starts this Sunday.

You haven't heard loud like Texan Loud. And You haven't seen our Sharper image yet. I did mention we would Peek in on Leftwich. And you think the Dolts can match us Decible for Decible, I doubt it. Go ahead, look beyond Sunday, We will enjoy that.

Ok listen up, we have beat this subject to death too, just ask Grid, your ambassador. He was served a big piece of this pie, besides, the raiders team sucks, just ask Jerry Porter.

First, Gary plays in the shotgun formation, and looks to stay that way. Second, in the shotgun formation, it is all hand gestures, leg movements, and looks. If you think he is gonna bark out commands in the shotgun, you are crazier then I think. Won't happen.

Oh yeah, in that other loud stadium, the RCA dome, how many false starts did Gary have again?

The commentators were talking about it during the MN game. Through that point in the season opposing teams playing in Reliant had 12 false starts (they got 6 more that day)--the next nearest team at that point was 7.

How bout this lets say ure rookie QB actually gets going without a false start. Can he hold onto the ball? While he is running around on the field confused because he can't hear himeself think, the Texans D will squash him and he will turn the ball over at least twice this weekend.

Yeah, OK...Forget about the league-leading Vikings offense that committed 5 false starts in that same stadium. I'm sure your 25th-ranked rushing attack compares favorably with the team that's outscoring you by an average of 10 points a game.

Speaking of bad teams like the Raiders, should we mention the TRULY sad, pathetic Bills that you needed a last-second FG to beat?

How about the sad, pathetic Titans that you similarly only beat by 3?

Now, back to your failure to support your home team.

It was a last second touchdown against the Bills. Geez Jack, you need to get your stats right. Jaguars are more of holding team than a false start team. Also 90% of shotguns aren't called "hut, hut"... That is why you always see a QB bob his leg seconds before the snap. But you knew that right Jack.

It isn't like we have seen the Raiders hike a ball into Kerry Collins face in the shotgun or Culpepper calling time-outs from the shotgun and coming back in with an under center play or anything. Guess those most have been the 10% of shotgun plays where the QB wasn't doing the hokey pokey.

The stadium is very loud. However, I think it has more to do with the design of the stadium than it does the fans. Texan fans aren't that special, I don't think. Usually, the stadium is only about half full for the start of the noon games.. Also, where I sat during the Oakland game, the entire section of fans sat on their butts the entire game. I know it's a very different atmosphere in the Bull Pen but as a whole, our fans are on par with the majority of the league. Fortunately, our stadium is awesome!!

To avoid TV blackouts for the Detroit and Tennessee games, the Jaguars would have to sell approximately 12,500 tickets for Detroit and about 11,500 for Tennessee. That's not to sell out; that's to avoid blackout. That's a lot of tickets.

I don't know, man, the Astrodome used to be called the House of Pain! Partly due to the Glanville-style of play, but also because it was so loud!

And if Texans fans aren't that special, then why did Shawn Salisbury of ESPN say that Reliant is quickly becoming one of the toughest places to play in the NFL due to crowd noise? :confused:

Why did we lead the league in opposing team "mishaps" (Casserly's words) in the NFL...a lead, I might add, that was a 2:1 ratio over the second place crowd in those statistics.

No, Texans fans ARE special! And we will show it again this Sunday!

Actually, that would be less then 10,000, both games, the Jags would have to sell there junior. The Jags will sell that, and then some, with no problem. Too bad the Jags have an actual fan base that shows up, and not some PSL owners to help them out.

Oh one other point to be made, the Jags have at this point in time, more tickets sold to both games, even without selling another 10k, then what the Texans will sell in any game this season.

Hey double, the last time the Jags were in the Astro dome, or 'The house of pain' as you called it, it was so loud, that Mark Brunell had to whisper the plays to his team mates. I should say he was so loud, the stadium itself you could hear a pin drop in.

While we are on the subject of Stadium smack, I have been to a few and can offer my experience as a Chiefs/Titans fan. Arrowhead once was the loudest stadium in the NFL. I havent been there in a few years and it is still loud but not having been there im not sure if it as loud as it once was. The RCA dome is not loud, the Titans fans made more noise than the Colts fans the times that I was there. The Colesuem in Nashville once was almost as loud as Arrowhead but lately has the atmoshere of a golf gallery. Tiger Woods could tee off at midfield when the opposition has a critical 3rd and 5 and not have any complaints. I hate to smack my own but sometimes its gotta be done. People say its because they are losing but it wasnt very loud the second game of the year vs the Colts when they were 1-0 so that argument doesnt hold water. The fact is a lot of Titans fans are complacent and spoiled. Hopefully some lean times will send those that sit on there hands packing and get some fresh blood in there. I have never been to Relient or Alltell but I know they both can be loud. Some players I have heard interviewed say Relient is almost as loud as Arrowhead. Alltell was once a very loud and tough place to play because the Chiefs always had trouble with it being loud back in the mid-late 90's. BTW I heard they were going to bring in the Tarp next year to cover thousands of seats at Alltell. Im not sure if that is true or not.

Another thing that helps Arrowhead is they have an entire parking lot dedicated to the stadiums. It can fit everyone that goes to the Chiefs game. They start partying there like 6 hours (or more for night games) before the game starts. So you get to bring you own alcohol and arent stuck buying at the staduim or bar. I dont know about most people, but for the 7 dollar beer I but at the Titans game is what I usually pay for a 12 pack of Keystone or Bush light.

The "House of Pain" was during the glory years of the Oilers. Not the lame-duck season that was their last. I wouldn't consider the House of Pain years the glory years -- that would be Luv Ya Blue IMO. HOP was fun - with Lyles and Seale walking around in pregame in fatigues and helmets - and the 7 years of playoffs were great (chokes notwithstanding) but I think I'll reserve "Glory Years" for 78-80 Oilers.

The attendance at the Dome for the Jax game in '95 was 36,346.

Recall that Bud tore the team apart in '94 because of the advent of the cap as we know it (2-14) fired Pardee mid-season and promoted Jeff. '95 was the beginning of the rebuild and the beginning of the exclusive negotiating period with Bredesen (Bud's fool me twice). '96 was the true lame duck year.

NFL attendance figures are tickets sold, not turnstile/scanner.

When the Texans won their first road game at Jax in 2002, the attendance (tickets sold) was 53,721. Lots and lots of unsold tix for that one...

Our average is 70,571 this year, even though the official capacity of Reliant Stadium is only 69,500!!

However, now that you bring up the stats, why is the 2003 average for JAX only 53,509?! You are 31 out of 32 that year (with Houston at 10th that year).

Let's dig deeper: 2002 JAX average is 56,277?! (Houston is 9th that year)

Or 2001 JAX average is 60,442?! (Houston did not have a team that year)

hmmmmm...interesting to note that our average attendance for 2 1/2 years is GREATER than our stadium's "official" capacity...and JAX stadium is...well...NOT averaging near it's capacity.

Well, to be fair you would have to compare those numbers with Jacksonvilles in there first 3 years as well. When the newness wears off and a team starts to lose a few attendence goes down.

Nor would i insult your stadium, cause it is a very nice stadium and a great place to see a game. The welcome from the fans was not very warm, but overall it is one of the best stadiums in the NFL.
if you were to make a 200,000 seat stadium in green bay it would still sell out. what kinda response is that

A fair one I thought. I figured you were comparing a small market team to a small market team. THe size of the stadium would come into play in the comparison. However I get what you are saying. Green Bay would sell out no matter what. They also have had a long time to get it that way. Green Bay has a long and great history and relationship with the Packers. It took years to get there and other teams that are new will get there one day.

I remember when the Oilers could never sell out a game. I hardly ever saw a home game when I was a kid. The only time I ever saw the Oilers was when they were on the road because we could never beat the 72 hour deadline either. That kind of stuff works both ways.

all this banter is frivolous, Texan fans you need to represent bottom line. The Game is in less than half a day, you should all be resting for the ambush @ Relient. I can't go but I'll be watching and this is what I want to see :headbang: I want to see Relient so loud that left witch cannot communicate the snap count. I want a sea of RED standing, celebrating and supporting the Texans.

today in Jacksonville they called it the largest cocktail party in the world, evidently it didn't help as Flordia lost :hehe: see in Texas we don't drink cocktails we drink beer & lots of it difference being we don't ***** foot around with make believe beverages we drink the real thing and in a few hours the stadium will be filled to capacity with over 70,000 screaming beerloveing Texans. Its on!
