Default how is seattles silent count?

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.

Couldn't have said it better myself as for the crowd being less a factor. As for watching the Super Bowl it is a fact most people that are not direct fans of the teams participating watch the game for the commercials!!!

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.
