The only way that will end is if the fans ignore the announcers and refuse to participate when they say it.

They do this at A&M games, with slightly different wording: "____ yard gain for a Fightin' Texas Aggie First Down!"

College FB is a different world though.

He runs an offensive system that includes a lot of no huddle, with the QB making calls at the line on every play. How could it not bother him to have 70,000 home fans screaming while they're trying to run plays?
It football 101. Fans should be quite when the offense is operating.

It likely won't.

When you are down there on the field, in the action, you are almost completely oblivious to that kind of stuff.

Agreed and that should be a given. Does the crowd actually get that loud when the announcer does the First Down thing?

Yeah, this was my line of thinking as well.

This seems like a Mountains out of Molehills topic to me.

Well, then they should stop putting the graphic up on the board during the game that says Quiet, Offense at Work.
It's like the two of you are watching a different game than I am.
It helps the offense when the crowd is quiet. It hinders the offense when the crowd is loud.
Why in gods name do fans on the road make noise when our offense has the ball? I guess they should stop that nonsense. It clearly doesn't make any difference... /sarcasm

BTW, the intention of the original post wasn't to debate the merits of the First Down call, it was to discuss whether O'Brien would want the call stopped, and whether he has the authority to do so, if he wants it stopped.

Yeah, I don't get the dismissive attitude when the Texans have clearly tried to educate fans about being quiet when the offense is on the field.

I'm sure you remember when the pep band was wandering around the stadium and would randomly pop up in various sections and start playing. Quite a few times they'd show up in Gridiron, Tx., and start a song, completely oblivious to what was happening on the field.

It only happened for two games before it was quickly shut down. Between fans bringing it to the attention of the front office and players making statements on the radio, it was very obvious that lots of noise directly impacted the offense.

There is a reason why "home-field advantage" includes having the crowd on your side. At one time, the Texans were keeping running stats all season about how many false starts, timeouts, and snap mistakes were being made by opponents due to crowd noise at Reliant. The NFL eventually put a stop to the statistical thing, but it was cool while it lasted.
