Default Fans at Colts Game..

I have to give it up to my fellow Texans fans. We rocked Reliant. It was the loudest I have heard it in a very long time especially near the end when we were on defense. We showed what great fans we are and I loved it!Thoughts?

I was only watching on TV, but I could still tell that the place was rockin. When Mathis had his TD they showed the crowd and everyone, and I mean every single person in the frame, was out of their seats and jumping all over each other. It looked like a crazy college game.

Watching it at home it sounded loud as hell after Mathis returned the kickoff for a TD.

Unfortunately, Manning has the uncanny ability to silence a crowd. Constant 3rd down conversions tend to quiet the crowd.

I have asked/suggested/written/emailed you name it, but the Texans marketing dept needs a 30 minute before kick off siren to go off in the parking lot...heck, they need to do a series of sirens, 1 hour, 45 minutes and then 1/2 hour.

I was being very cognizant of the time and boom, it was 11:15 before we started wrapping up the pre game tailgate. We shut it down quickly and made it to our seats about 11:50.

It may help, heck, it can't hurt.

I sit one row in front of Bud Adams' corporate seats. 7th row. Sometimes his company gives the tickets to Texans fans and sometimes not. Sometimes corporate people don't really care much because they tickets were give aways.

Third quarter.

Colts are 3 and 1. Trying to score. It is loud.

Right before the play, the guy behind me wearing a Tommy Bahamaesque outfit asks that I sit down so he can watch the game.

I tell him it is a FOOTBALL game. It's third and 1 and our team is on defense. If you can't stand up then, when can you stand up.

He left in the third quarter. We didn't miss him as his effect on crowd noise was similar to a potted plant. Actually, I have no idea who he was rooting for or if he had a rooting interest at all.

If you want to sit down the whole game, go to the club level or watch at home from your couch.

It was about 90% more crowded than it was for the Chief's kickoff, though.

I was definitely dissapointed with the attendance at kickoff. We made a point to shut it down at eleven and get in our seats. I'll bet it didn't even take 15 minutes to get sat, and when we got there I was shocked at how empty the seats were. I figured it would be hell getting in. It did seem like the upper and lower sections were pretty filled. What's up with that middle $ection?

Default Re: Fans at Colts Game..

I wasn't going to say anything but since this thread was started, I'm going to speak my mind on this subject. Frankly, we did a poor job of supporting our defense. I'm very disappointed in the fans and have two bones to pick on this subject.

First, this may sound crazy but at the beginning of the third quarter when the Colts received the kickoff, the stands were still very empty. Before you knew it, the Colts drove the length of the field with barely a whimper from the fans. I was very disappointed.

This is a young defense that feeds on excitement. As fans, we needed to be there for them and we weren't. Bottom line is get your food/drinks and get you butts back in your seats and get ready to support your team.

Second, itís great that people get loud just before the snap, but we need to get loud and stay loud while the defense is on the field. Particularly, when the opponents are using no huddle offense to catch us off guard and wear down our defense.

If you watched the Colts closely when they were utilizing no huddle, the offense would mull around the line of scrimmage while Manning barked out orders. The Colts would line up at the line of scrimmage and then the fans would start to get loud. By now itís too late. Damage has been done. We needed to be loud the entire time to disrupt the play calling at the line of scrimmage. Force the Colts to go into a huddle. Give our defense time to catch its breath and make substitutions.

Bottom line is as fans who want to affect the outcome of the game, we failed.

Sorry if I rained on your parade.

I'm not bad mouthing the folks in the club seats as they are fans too. Just because their seats are more expensive that doesn't make them any less passionate...however, they do need to pry themselves away from the bars, sofas, and buffet tables and get their rear ends to their seats for kickoff.

Spoken from the Directors Club "Birds Nest", where we are "The Homefield Advantage".

Unfortunately, this is true. Meco was out there SEVERAL times waving his arms like crazy, and our fans still did NOT respond like they should have. It's just unfortunate that we have so many football illiterate fans that attend the games. Some of that is because Houston is such a large marketing area. Also because we have so many corporate owned seats, people who sell their tickets for profit on stubhub or e-bay, and don't give a rats flying butt who they sell too. Right now, I'm not sure we will EVER have a fan base like Green Bay, Oakland, Pittsburg, or even the Eagles. Just to many flakey people out there who go to the games to sit on their a**es!!!!! JMO

I had a lady two rows behind me, yell at me to sit down. First time that has ever happened. It was also the first time I played preacher and tried to channel the strength to allow her to use her legs and stand as others were doing. She did not seem to like it, but it got some laughs around us. Not sure if she was a Colts fan or an idiota so I gave the her the benefit of the doubt that she was an idiota.

yeah, we've got a long way to go if we want an elite homefield advantage.

The one gripe I have, beyond the inconsistent support for the D, is for fans to have an once of common sense and shut the heck up when our offense is on the field. In spite of the BIG SCREEN telling everyone to be quiet, and in spite of our players waving for people to be quiet, we still have quite a few football noobs that don't understand the very simple concept of yelling for defense, quiet for offense. This isn't baseball where you yell just because something exciting is finally happening.

Well, I screamed my lungs out! I was standing at least half of the game, I was in 139 and most everyone around me was doing the same.

When the called back the initial kick off for offsides, I looked at my buddy next to me and said "they shouldn't have given Mathis another chance, he is going to run this one back"......and the rest is history, it was pure pandemonium in that place when he broke free!
