one of the announcers mentioned the crowd wasn't real loud early to mid point in the game...

Yea, Heinz shakes in the playoffs. Especially the upper deck.

The first time I noticed it was.... When we beat Baltimore at Heinz way back in 2001? 2002? That 27-10 game.

Heinz rocks.... :tt1 :tt1 :tt1 :tt1

Us Steeler fans are emotional . . . especially w/ our history in AFC CHampionships.

Even the last home AFC Champ game we won was a nail biter against the COLTS. I was there.

We as fans are bi-polar ... i sat in my chair at home quiet as a mouse until Troy got the INT. Even on WOODLEY's sack the play before all i could muster up was, "Good job Wood"

A lot of people don't get into the game until they know we won for sure.

The other point of excitement is right before kickoff.

I wish there was a way to convince fans to be louder prior to the game being decided. So they can have a bigger impact on the game.

I remember the AFC Championship against DENVER back in 1997-1998 ... we lost our voices before we even got in the stadium.

BUT i have noticed a lot of Pittsburgh fans are silent introverts. I wish they'd stay home to watch the games and give their tickets to the crazies!!

there should be a rule, if your not dressed up in some Steelers costume complete with painted face, you aren't allowed in the Stadium.

People like these are acceptable:

I loved hearing all 65,000 fans screaming "Bull Sh!t" after the horrible pass interference call on McFadden.

That was the first time I noticed the crowd noise. That was funny.

I think the refs were trying to keep the game under the point spread.

Nice post, Mr. Flippy!

I would show these to my wife to show her I am not really too far outside the bell curve, but I'm in the doghouse already for watching yesterday when my kid had a swim meet, so I'm thinking maybe I'd better not.

I don't want to win a Darwin award this year ...

The game was pretty loud.

Upper deck was shaking for sure during the second playing of Renegade and Troys pick 6.
