We've seen this pattern before: Player or coach that has never been to Qwest Field downplays the impact the Twelve Army has on Seahawks home games. After they leave the field defeated and deafened, they invariably say things along the lines of "I've never played in a louder stadium than that." Here's just one example.. Remember Panthers OC Dan Henning saying this before the 2005 NFC Championship Game?
“We went into places like New Orleans and Indianapolis and St. Louis and won,” said Henning. “So we’ve done fairly well with it. Plus, I’m not sure I’ve ever heard anything louder than the Kingdome.”
We all know how that turned out, don't we?
Now, Cardinals QB Max Hall, who has accomplished absolutely zilch in the NFL, has decided to give the Seahawks defense and an army of 67,000 fucking maniacs extra motivation:
"I played in some loud places," he said. "I've worked with the silent count before, so it's nothing new. It's something I feel fairly comfortable with."
Um, wow. I can't shake the feeling that A) This will be Hall's ONLY career start at Qwest Field and B) He isn't even going to finish THIS game, due to injury or being yanked for ineffectiveness.
I was doing some research on this cat, and I dug up this gem from his college days:
Full story here... Man, if he couldn't take some abuse for UTAH UTES fans, how is he going to react to the wave of fury and rage that is going to be aimed DIRECTLY AT HIM for three hours on Sunday?
I can't be at the game this Sunday, but I trust that all of you lucky enough to be in attendance are going to give him a proper welcome to the loudest stadium in the NFL...
