have they been practicing it this week? i know they play in st. louis once a year but they havent had much to cheer for this year. for the past 3 opponents the steelers are supposedly going against the "loudest fans" indy, denver, and now seattle. its funny how every team becomes the best at something when they face us. imagine how loud a domed house full of steelerfans would be.

or just tune in tomorrow.

Yes they have been practicing it because we consider Ford Field to a hostile environment since it doesn't take being a brain surgeon to realize we will have 10% of the crowd at best tomorrow.

Yeah they practiced it a bit.

Weird how Steeler fans knew to buy Superbowl tickets a year ago. Dude, the vast majority of the crowd at the superbowl doesn't even know what football is.

Mama always said stupid is as stupid does...


There will be 75% Steelers fans. I have friends shelling out $5,000 plus for tickets to the game. All the corporate schills have a price, and the Steeler Nation is willing to pay it.

No, there will be 75% of people who don't know who the Seahawks are. Giving Ashley Simpson a terrible towel to wave around probably won't make a silent count necessary...

The crowd doesn't make a difference at the Superbowl.

Since the vast majority will be Steelers fans then you don't have a clue.....
Steeler fans are everywhere the team plays and that IS the one thing they definitely know is....FOOTBALL!!!!! :helmet:

I think we may all be pleasantly surprised..well most of us.. at all the screaming fans at the super bowl for us. I'd imagine by the end of the first half you'll be seeing our defense waving its hands in the air to cheer on the fans and they'll get a hometown response as good as any they've seen.

Most times the crowd isnt much of a factor at the SB but when u consider its the Steeler nation there and so close to Pittsburgh, well u know just never know.

again, your an idiot........everytime i read one of your post im amaxed at your intelligence.
It doesnt matter what they know about football......there gonna be loud.......there gonna be wearing black and gold.....waving the terrible towel........and the hawks are not gonna be able to handle that......the noise is gonna get to them........you watch the penalties.

in super bowl xxx, it was either aikman or irvin who said about 75% of the crowd were steeler fans, and that was in pasadena, so whosever 'crowd aint gonna be a factor' theory is full of bs. btw, just the thought of some rich chatchy w/ front row 50yd line seats, who doesn't know shit about football, and who's there just cause he can makes me f'in RAGE, 'punch a baby in the face' kinda rage'

anyways there is a distinct difference between the 95 cowboys and the 06 seahawks. and if crowd noise isnt a factor why does the seahawks fans brag about the "12th man" and how loud they are and play it up like its such a huge factor? kind of contradictory there

You Hawkers are in for a RUDE awakening tomorrow. There is going to be a sea of Black-n-Gold at Ford Field.

Oh, and ask Manning what it's like to deal with Steeler Nation. There was a moment in the game where the Colts were in the Red Zone and he was motioning for the crowd to quiet... but it wasn't his fans making the noise, lol!! He was trying to quiet the Steeler Nation and that wasn't happening!!

The crowd noise isn't a factor because most people at the game don't really have a horse in this race. The crowd in Seattle screams thier lungs out when the defense is on the field like their very life depends on it. If the game was in Pittsburgh or Seattle and only Steeler or Seahawk fans were there, then the crowd would be a factor.

Tell me the last time you heard an announcer at a Superbowl game say, "I can't even hear myself talk!!!" I hear that every week at Seattle home games

Never in all my years have I ever noticed the crowd noise when watching the Superbowl- particularly recently, since its become a corporate schmooze fest...

you dumb if you don't think it ain't gonna be dominated by the steeler fans, even the detroit natives will be cheering for us cause that guy that is called the bus is from there. it's gonna be very loud when the seahawks offenses is on the field, all he's gonna be seeing is yellow in the stands

Coaches prepare for everything. Spending a few minutes practicing a silent count is hardly shocking. I'd be shocked in Cowherd didn't do the same.

Will you come back and apologize after the game when you find out crowd noise wasn't a factor?

This really is a moronic topic.

Ok- rely on the crowd to carry you. After all, you need something to keep your hopes up...

What will you do now that you don't have the "us against the world" card to play?

This is exactly why Ben has been sequestered from America....

The Steelers have a handful of great players.

The Seahawks are a cohesive organism that will destroy you.

Remember, the hair is part of the uniform....

are you threatening a 3rd grade, schoolgirl, hair pulling, type of fight?

classic!

while your team is worried about the "world", steelers have been focussing on the seahawks.

advantage: steelers

(btw- ben has been studying. what has hasselbeck been doing other than begging for fans which you proclaim they dont need or wont make a difference? there are just too many holes in your arguments)

I would wager to say it would be better put as this....THE FANS are worried about the world but make no mistake the SEAHAWKS only care about the STEELERS.

Hasselbeck did his studying long ago- now he's among the best QB's around.

I hope for your sake that Ben gets all his studying in before the test...

yeah i think hes studied up. so hasselbeck finished his studying long ago huh? you mean the weeks he played the 49ers?

but matt is in the sb with bens so technically, yes, he is "among the best qb's around"

That's why they play it on the field.

I have no disprespect for Ben whatsoever, unlike Steelers' fans feelings for Matt...

As an NFL fan, I'd be shocked if a 2nd year kid was the main factor in the Superbowl.

If he is, he's a legend and deserves the praise you're giving him.

i picked m. hasselbeck as my ff sleeper 3 years ago when he finally broke out. him and k. robinson. ive known he would be good for a while. (i always trusted m. holmgrens judgement in him). i like hasselbeck and have followed him pretty good and know what he can do. he was my qb the year he went into overtime against gb and i thought he showed alot of moxy. and he was alwqays a stud in pre season as farves back-up. you could tell he was way more than a back up way back then.

well, until this year, there were 75% of people in seattle that didnt know who the seahawks were.....and I beg to differ, if the crowd is 75% "steeler fans"....there will be a difference.
