    Watching the game yesterday over here is so surreal since I have now been in the stadium, I was constantly remebering what it was like when I was there, and then also found myself constantly looking for you guys whenever they showed a picture of the crowd or down near the Bull Pen.

    Not sure weather it was just the TV coverage or what, but it didn't seem that loud at todays game, seemed to have its moments for instance when the Phins jumped offside on 4th and goal I think it was. Was that just the TV or was it not as loud as usual yesterday?

    That offsides should be credited to the crowd. I sit in that endzone and was convinced we cost the Dolphins 4 points there.:wild:

    According to ubecool454, "Fans have very little affect on the game."


    I know we caused havoc and the penalty during that drive. I just wish we could do it on every play our defense (not offense!!!) is on the field.

    It was loud Andy, but, not as loud as the Colts game. There were a couple times where my ears were ringing though. IMHO, there was NO comparison. The Colts game has it beat hands down as for overall crowd support.

    Even over the Cowgirls 19-10 debacle?
    Or what about the Oakland game where we got like 6 or 8 offsides calls and Capers gave the fans a game ball?

    I was just comparing the Colts and Fins games Big. Sideline was at the Colts game and got a taste of how loud Reliant can be. NOTHING compares to the Dallas game, and I'm not sure we will ever repeat that glorious night.

    This is why it is so good for fans to not just go to games but also tour the stadium. See what the locker room and training facilities look like.

    You see the game differently after you have been to a stadium because your mind fills in the blanks that you can't see on tv.

    Well, to be honest, I don't think we were 'inspiring' our defense very much on those 3rd and longs that kept getting converted to 1st downs.

    It is disheartening to constantly scream your ass off for the D after they wave their hands for crowd support only to have the opponent constantly dominate them.

    They'd better grow a pair, because our next three opponents are going to be a lot tougher than Miami.
