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!!
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?

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!

LET'S GET READY TO RUUUUUUUMBLE!!!!!
