VOLUME 12!

Anything less will be unacceptable! I have yet to hear Volume 12 all year but if there ever was a regular game this season to achieve it, this be it.

I'm kinda thinking we need 13, 'cause Wilson apparently counts as 2 players...

I'm not worried. This bar is to me what Cheers is to Norm. However, my 3 best friends and my woman are all Niner fans and they will be there too.

It was pretty loud at the MNF game when Wilson threw the game winning TD. I know I was yelling my head off. I'll be there again Sunday doing the same.

scream until your lungs bleed, from the time their offense walks on the field until their punter kicks the ball after a 3 & out! if you can utter an audibel noise by Wednesday morning you didnt yell loud or long enough... i really want them to bring back the old "Ralley in the Alley" on Friday afternoons like we used to have before the Raider & Bronco games...

It was extremely loud in the 1st half too when we had 8 sacks. The place was going nuts.

Noise from my end will not be a problem. I don't make it to as many games as I used to, so when I do, I make it count. I want my ears ringing Kingdome style after this one.

If there's one game ALL YEAR we need 12's to step up, it's this one. We did fine against GB, and NE was good too, Dallas wasn't bad....

We need NYG Epic though.

No doubt, I have been telling everyone that if any of us have even a LITTLE bit of voice on XMas Eve, we haven't done our job.

This is a ridiculous thread. The 12th man does not influence games. Just ask JSeahawks.

Seriously, you guys better bring it!

I wish I could be there for this one but I'll have to hold it down, in spirit, from Carlow East in NYC. A lot of regulars are making the trek back to Seattle for the holidays so it won't be as packed as usual but I care not! I will still scream until I'm coughing up shards of my bloody lungs! I've cruised through this week so far just waiting, constantly thinking about Sunday's game. I can't imagine how I'm going to be feeling about an hour before kickoff.

Give the 49ers hell!!!

Loud and proud baby! Section 336.

I was lucky enough to fly out to Chicago and attend the game at Soldier Field a few weeks ago. (Experience of a lifetime for sure). But, I was honestly shocked at the way the crowd noise worked there. The only time they made noise was on 3rd downs, and this was after the jumbotron told them to get loud. On first and second down, it was unbelievably quiet. I was in seats five rows from the field, and on both of the final 2 drives I could actually hear Russel Wilson's cadence. It really surprised me. But it also made me understand why we have the reputation we do, because we bring it on EVERY DEFENSIVE SNAP!!! I'm so ridiculously fired up for this game!!!!!!!!!

I'll be there. The atmosphere is going to be insane. I've been to plenty of memorable games at that stadium, but none am I more pumped up for than this one, to include the 2005 NFCCG.

I'm pretty sure I heard volume 12 after Rice scored against the Pats. That was pretty deafening. Regardless, I fully expect to hear it and be a part of it this Sunday.

Here's how they plan to deal with the crowd noise:

Quote:
Making sure one hand always is on the ground, the 6-foot-8, 300-pound right guard will twist and watch for a signal from quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who will be at least 4 1/2 yards behind him in the shotgun formation.

When he sees Kaepernick raise his knee, Boone will turn to the man on his left, center Jonathan Goodwin, and tap him on the arm – the sign that it's time to snap the ball.

Sound overly complicated? It's a lot more effective than shouting the snap count in a stadium that swallows up voices even when the speaker is mere inches away.

"I think it's just keeping your poise and really focusing in," Boone said of getting off a play correctly in a cacophonous stadium. "I think (offensive-line coach Mike) Solari does a good job of that, and I think it's definitely a big key for us, especially in a stadium like this week's where it's going to be very loud."

Is that what the noise is I hear echoing from the west? I'm all the way in Jersey and I keep meaning to go check out that noise. Boy is it loud! ;)

Not intending to call you you Horox. But wouldn't this tell the D-Line it's time to snap the ball? Or is there more to this? If he taps the center w/ 1 finger count to 3, wiggle your toes four times and then snap? If 2 fingers, just snap it? Is all this determined by the speed of the foot motion from Kap?

Just seems silly.

It does seem silly and could give our d line an advantage on the snap. But that's just what the article is reporting they are doing.

Here's how they plan to deal with the crowd noise:

Making sure one hand always is on the ground, the 6-foot-8, 300-pound right guard will twist and watch for a signal from quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who will be at least 4 1/2 yards behind him in the shotgun formation.

When he sees Kaepernick raise his knee, Boone will turn to the man on his left, center Jonathan Goodwin, and tap him on the arm – the sign that it's time to snap the ball.

Sound overly complicated? It's a lot more effective than shouting the snap count in a stadium that swallows up voices even when the speaker is mere inches away.

"I think it's just keeping your poise and really focusing in," Boone said of getting off a play correctly in a cacophonous stadium. "I think (offensive-line coach Mike) Solari does a good job of that, and I think it's definitely a big key for us, especially in a stadium like this week's where it's going to be very loud."

Not intending to call you you Horox. But wouldn't this tell the D-Line it's time to snap the ball? Or is there more to this? If he taps the center w/ 1 finger count to 3, wiggle your toes four times and then snap? If 2 fingers, just snap it? Is all this determined by the speed of the foot motion from Kap?

Just seems silly.


It does seem silly and could give our d line an advantage on the snap. But that's just what the article is reporting they are doing.


This has been normal operating procedure for a few years coming into our stadium. It means that the Center can snap the ball when he sees fit since the snap count will likely be unheard by most. The key is, "be ready OT's, the ball will be snapped shortly" - and the DL for the Seahawks will have the same "advantage" knowing that all they have to do is watch the ball.

Where I've seen most teams get into trouble is when the QB is calling shifts and/or they are trying to audible. This is really tough to do in our stadium and puts the opposing offense at a distinct disadvantage.
