    They've scored just 32 points in the 2 road games they've played. That's not a lot of points for the kind of offense that King is describing

    Not only that lots of posters feel we have to put up 30 to win this game, me included, something we have not done since week #3 last year, on the road that is.

    Does anyone remember last year, week 9 against the number 1 ranked defense Pittsburgh Steelers? Yeah, just saying...

    I second that! I think this team is going to surprise us this Sunday and, even if we lose, I don't think it will be an embarrassing loss but actually quite close.

And all this is more likely to lead to penalties and miscommunications about blocking assignments or routes.
    I absolutely agree that crowd noise has been a factor at times for our offense. KC is a good example (I think the team was flat which made it worse).

    However, in watching the game Sunday I was struck by how easily I could hear Aaron Rodgers. Maybe that was SNF having extra parabolic mikes or something, but it didn't appear everything they did was by hand signals. Houston might just not be that loud of a crowd. Anyone know?

    I never really thought of them of being the loudest and more hostile crowds in the league (especially for a roofed stadium). They were really loud in the play offs against Cincy, but apart from that, they've always seemed up and down to me.

    This will be my third game at Reliant and it's a VERY loud crowd. It's not Seattle loud, but it's very close.

    Louder than M&T? Cause my ears were ringing early in the Patriots game...

    I hate to say it, but yes. I've been to games with the roof closed and open and it doesn't matter. They way the stadium is built is like a sound chamber that faces down towards the field.

    I'd put my top three loudest stadiums in this order ...

    1. Seattle
    2. Houston
    3. Baltimore

    With Dallas and NOLA as honorable mentions.

    There's faith and facts, this defense is not good to stop any run game, Forester will go off for a single game record. Birk will not hold up with the inside rush of Watt, we have no pass rush to get to schuabb. Our defense is banged up, our Oline don't do well with premier pass rushers, we won't win this. Its ok though
