NFL  > New York Giants  > The 12th man factor of 2006!!!
November 6, 2010, 01:03 PM
Over the years there have been a couple Giants game I rather forgot, where we just got spanked, like the Colts this year or even the smack the Panthers gave us in our final game in Meadowlands... Out of all of them over the years, one game is forever stuck in my mind and that's vs the Seahawks at Quest field in 2006.

Just watching it on TV, hearing that crowd was unbelievable to me. Those false starts calls over and over... Eli and the Oline was just a mess in the game. Seahawks 12th man was put on the map that day.

It's been 4 years, Eli and the Oline are more mature and have better discipline. So I'm hoping for some payback sunday. You'd think if we can handle 90,000+ in Cowboys stadium we can handle 60,000+ in Quest field but it's like comparing Sony speakers to Bose Speakers, two totally different enviroments!!!

I am sure Jerry sprung for the good speakers, but the fans are wee bit beat down right now. (mute)Bull has a bag over his head! I don't think the G-men will have a problem this weekend. :)

It's not just this year... Even when the Cowboys Stadium opened last year it was loud. The Seatlle thing apparently is all in the enginerring of Quest field, some how the design pushes all the sound to the field..

Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City is a loud place because of the sound system. The fans in Green Bay are loud because most of them are drunk or stoned by game time. The Oakland Raider fans usually carry knives to their stadium just to shutup the visiting team's fans.

Yeah Arrowhead is a load one.. Didn't know how much the sound system was a factor, isn't that illegal? Raiders fan are just a different breed from the rest of the league..lol I think they are Mormons!!!

Green Bay is an incredible place to see a game. The fans aren't load because they're drunk or stoned, but because they genuinely LOVE their team. It's crazy. I am really into music and sound engineering so yes, the way Quest Field is designed is made to make the sound louder and pushed towards the field. The engineering of the building kind of reminds me of the way an opera house is designed so that the sounds travels around the building. It's really incredible and pretty neat.

I'm a Packer season ticket holder and I'm not drunk or stoned when I attend a game at Lambeau field. I get tired of people that think all Packer fans are hicks or hayseeds. This proud franchise has 12 NFL Championships which is much more than any other team in the NFL. Packer fans are from all walks of life and very dedicated to their team.

Is that exactly what it says on the back of your ticket ???

hey sam! Looks like the G-men need a W this weekend. I think they take this game by at least 10!

With Charlie "white-man" starting it would suck to lose, I would take a loss if Matt was starting, So I would find it unacceptable if we lose tomorrow against Charlie. Just hope Eli can control the turnovers, Bradshaw holds on to the ball a little more closer to his body, I'm hoping they come out earlylike the Texans game and put up 21 points fast, Maybe takeout another QB on top of it..lol

Just knock Matt Hasselbeck out of the game and you should do fine. That seems to be the Giants game plan this year.

Given Hasselback is already ruled out, it will have to be Whitehurst we knock out. Who's their 3rd QB anyway? ..lol
