Default Reaction from those who were at the game

I would like everyone who was at the game to please post their thoughts on the experience.

1. The view from where I was (545 row 1) was excellent. I had heard that there was not a single bad seat in the house and that may very well be true.

2. The fans weren't as bad as some people said they would be. The fans in my particular area were pretty awesome, all things considered. There was plenty of prodding but nothing unreasonable. If I were a Steelers fan I know my experience would have been MUCH different.

3. The stadium was NOT LOUD. I was surprised at how tame it was in there. The crowd only really got revved up on 3rd or 4th down. The last game I went to at Reliant was the Saints game a few years back and that was much more intense.

It was a good experience. Obviously I wish we had won but oh well. I didn't break the bank so it's all good.

/Restart thread with another noobie-bandwagon-fan-who's-ticked-their-2012-choice-for-the-playoffs-didn't-win-it-all-this-year neg. repped. Of course I'll get one in return as soon as they figure out how. Whatever. I'm tired of the combined rudeness and stupidity, especially toward thread starters in the first responses.

Dierdorf was raving about how this is one of the loudest stadiums in the NFL; comparable to Aarowhead and Seattle he said.

My experience was great. I was in sect 121. Fans were respectful towards my sister and I except one fan threw the middle finger at us which was uncalled for. Good way to spend my weekend off and it was a good game. Now I need to head back down to Norfolk for work.

Hey, I read somewhere (maybe in the game day thread) that there was a lot of Texans fans at the game, but somehow it didn't quite look that wat on TV.

I hope you guys can recount more of your experience, I really do.

I saw a ton of Texans fans at the game on TV, or at least I thought so. There were a lot in row 1 and some even had flags hanging over the railing near the end zone.

Joe Texan had a huge closeup on national TV and his hat and everything was featured

Would be nice to hear from someone who was there. Some radio station in Baltimore tweeted that they had never seen more away team's fans at a stadium ever. At the same time, while reading some Ravens' message boards, they estimated the # at 1000 at most. So, who knows...

My seat was 1000 times better than I thought it would be (Sec 548 row 26). I'm also glad I was on the sunny side of the stadium. I was so warm I had to take off my jacket and hat. I was told that the other side was 15 to 20 degrees colder due to the shade.

The fans were great overall. I was heckled, but I expected that due to being the enemy for the game. But the heckling came from a very small percentage of the fans the rest were really great. They were also very impressed with how many Texans fans traveled to the game.

I'm kinda biased about the volume in the stadium because the guys around me hollared every time the Ravens were on defense so all I heard was them.

I will confirm that there were a lot of Texans jerseys in the stadium. I'm not sure how it looked on T.V. but there were about 30 of us just in our section and I know there were around 400 at the bar Saturday night.

Great time overall and I enjoyed meeting people from the board!!

What I read is like 16-17% in attendance were Texans fans, and I said to myself WOW if that is true.

Default Re: Reaction from those who were at the game

And oh yeah, I was scanning all the local channels since Saturday to catch all the news. I just wanted to feel as close to the "action" as possible. It's kinda crazy, but that's how I roll.

The local stations try to do a good job, but maybe they are still "new" at this - and perhaps they don't have enough resources (?)

I wish they would focus their effort to spend more time with the fans/team.
I sincerely wish that they will do that next year.
Come on, Houston sport media, don't get caught behind when your team is on the upswing.
You guys/gals want the Texans to take the next step, here's an open challenge for you to help make the team and the city even more relevant!
Let's go!

I was on the Northwest side of the stadium and I was flying mine. Directly across from me were two Texans flags flying side by side. Was that anyone on here???

Default Re: Reaction from those who were at the game

We were in section 147 and it was AWESOME! The Raven fans were fun, not rude at all. One couple told me when the game was over that they wished TJ Yates was theirs. They HATE Joe Flacco! lol Nothing but compliments about our team, no smack talk at all. They seemed to realize we are a young growing team with a great future. I was very impressed with Raven fans. I truly believe we came home with a reputation of being a classy franchise!

Anyone who thinks that stadium was LOUD, is completely nuts! I've seen some of our worst games at Reliant louder than they were at their loudest. I was disappointed at the lack of excitement for a playoff game. Maybe their fans are just more accustomed to this than we are, but, the atmosphere was similar to a reg season game.

I don't know the precentage of Texans fans there, but, they were scattered all over the stadium. Remember also, it was cold, and some didn't have red jackets or hats. We repped our TEXANS very well, have no fear about that.

The party at Lucky's Sat night was AWESOME! Someone said the manager made the comment that he had NEVER seen the place like that, even when the Raven's won the SB. They were blown away at the number of fans there, PLUS,, the excitement of the fans was electric. Someone, don't know who for sure, only rumors, flew in a DJ from Houston, so the music was FANTASTIC!! People singing, dancing, cheering, giving each other high fives, hugs, and toast, was simply a precious memory for me. PLUS, I got to celebrate a NINER win! lol

Other than the loss it was a great weekend! I wanted to climb over the rail and beat the crap out of J. Jones, but, Justin wouldn't let me!

Guess I'll put this in here, just for fun! I HATE crabcakes!!

Default Re: Reaction from those who were at the game

Although I didn't make this game I did go to the one in October and I came home with the feeling of most on this thread. The fans around me were great and yes they really hate old Flacco. I watched the game here with my buddy that is from Baltimore and as soon as the game was over his friends started calling him and wanted to talk to me. They too were praising our team and were very impressed. The words "you guys should have won" came out of their mouths a few times. Overall I think Ravens fans are good people.

Let's hope next year that the playoffs will come through Houston and we can show the nation what a loud stadium really sounds like.

I was in 141/ row 1 and my section was a little hit and miss. Some folks were REALLY drunk and making a few comments, but overall the crowd was really nice. The man next to me made sure I had several hand warmers and the ladies behind me bought me a beer :-).

I went to the game there in Oct and this one and the amount of Texans fans present was greatly increased. I have never seen so many of us at an away game.... and I go to a lot of them. We took over Luckies on Saturday night!! They also gave out too much alcohol which caused for my slight hangover. lol. The airports were flooded with us. The best part was on Sunday morning at Mothers when the DJ played Clay Walker. Everyone that was outside sang loudly together. :-) The unity was amazing.
