    I will say, it seemed ROCKING there today. and they got loud when they needed too and quiet when it was right.

    I was impressed ,for once.

    the fans were great today. we actually stayed (relatively) quiet on offense. on defense they were loud throughout, but in the 4th quarter the tv cameras were shaking and the announcers were yelling just to be heard.

    Remember that Saints fan that said Reliant is filled with nothing but business suits and golf claps

    I think the fans today were actually a significant factor in the win. ATL kept running the clock down and the crowd definitely interfered with their playcalls.

    I'm pretty convinced we had a big part in that first interception by Matt Ryan. I just straight up don't think the WR knew what route he was supposed to run.

    'Twas great. :dance:

    They were interviewing Antonio Smith on the radio after the game, and he said the guards for Atlanta were yelling out the run play at times because they couldn't hear. Great job by the crowd. The announcers on TV talked about how loud it was a couple of times.

    I'm positive that was the loudest game I've ever been to. I've been going since 2006.

    Antonio Smith was on 610 saying it was so loud that the guards were having to call the plays out at the line because they couldn't hear Matt Ryan.

    It was Awesome, play-offs, that place is going to be deafening.

    Matt Ryan missed two or three WRs down the field even though they were wide the F open.

    Jjo & Kareem Jackson play at the line, jamming the receivers was the reason for all that. They couldn't get off the line clean & Matt thought they would be further down the field than they were.

    It was a playoff atmosphere all day long inside Reliant today. It was loud on 1st, 2nd and 3rd down for the Falcons offense from the 1st quarter through the 4th quarter.

    Man, I hope we get a home playoff game. With our defense, Reliant will be going nuts.

    Great job by the fans today! I could feel how loud it probably was in the stadium and the commentators mentioned the noise throughout the game. Let's keep this up fans and I can't wait to see what Reliant will be like in our first playoff game!

    Loudest for me was the very first game against the Cowboys. There wasn't an empty seat and it was incredible.

    Today had more open seats than I expected but was much louder than what I remembered at that first game.

    It was AWESOME.

    What was killing me was that when the defense motioned for more noise from the crowd, you could hear the volume go up noticeably. The fans get my game ball today. :trophy:

    The house was rocking today!
