Jacoby Brissett: Fans in Seattle will be drunk and very loud

Colts quarterback Jacoby Brissett is ready for a rude reception when he visits Seattle on Sunday night.

Brissett said he knows the Seahawks have a strong home-field advantage and it won’t be easy for him to call out signals. And he said that in a night game, he’s expecting the Seahawks fans to have had plenty of fun all day long leading up to the game.

“We’re playing at nighttime, so everybody’s drunk then,” Brissett said. “I’m guessing it’ll be very loud.”

Colts coach Chuck Pagano isn’t expecting the other offensive players to be able to hear Brissett.

“When it gets rockin’ and that stadium shakes, you can’t hear yourself think,” Pagano said.

Brissett has started just four games in his NFL career, two last year with the Patriots and two this year with the Colts. All four games were at home. In his first road start, he faces his toughest test yet.

  1. Guts?those same fans you speak of that all all patriotic on the internet won’t even drop protesters from their fantasy teams.

  2. I think it hilarious that everyone comments complaining about all of the focus is on politics and not football, then when you post something that is 100% football related, people still chime in with political comments.

    Self-awareness not a big thing with this crowd, apparently.

  3. It’s the height of self-delusion for a loud, drunken fan to believe he has any impact on the performance of professional athletes he’s watching.

  4. If you’ve never been to the CLINK in seattle or Arrowhead there really isn’t anything like the sound that comes out of those places. It gets written about a lot but it’s hard to imagine what it’s really like. By chance I happened to be at both Arrowhead and the Clink when Guiness was there, (just luck I suppose, not intentional) and both stadiums were unreal when it came to how loud the crowd got. It’s a real thing. I’ve also been to both when they weren’t trying to break records and it isn’t much different at all.

  5. The fans should be drunk and loud after the way the Seahawks have started the season.
    Especially, directing it towards their pathetic OL.

    One loud, drunk fan, no. 60,000? Absolutely.

  7. Moved to Seattle in 2011. Wasn’t even such thing as the 12th man, and if there was, it wasn’t mainstream. Their QB situation was Tarvaris Jackson and quite frankly, nobody cared about them. Typical fair-weather west coast sports organization.

    Yeah because none of us have seen false starts, adjustments missed or wasted timeouts because of crowd noise particularly with an inexperienced QB and a poorly coached team. Newsflash for you chip: Indy has both.

    One, maybe not. However, 50-60,000 loud fans absolutely can have an effect on players.

    Brissett is proving every team wrong that passed on him in the draft. Just like Brady, Rodgers, Big Ben, and Brees have.

    Whoa big guy – let’s pump the brakes here. Those guys collectively have eight Super Bowls among them. Jacoby doesn’t even have eight NFL starts. I agree he looks promising, but let’s not wander off into the absurd.

    that’s not true, and a lot of stadiums have been devised to increase/funnel crowd noise to put away teams offense at a disadvantage.

    If you are older like me, you might remember right up to about the late Montana and Elway period refs could stop the game if the QB’s call couldn’t be heard, and would actually take away (or threaten to mostly) a timeout from the home team if the crowd didn’t settle down.

    Jacoby’s the first real qb the Colts have had since Johnny U walked off the field.
    ______
    …… And went to the Chargers.
    It’s a shame how those Baltimore fans ran the team out of town.

    Does Seattle follow the Colts’ model of pumping in extra crowd noise?
    ________________________________________________

    No need. Haven’t you ever been around small children? Get more than a few of them together and it gets real loud right quick. And the more you add the volume goes up exponentially. Of course most of them have no idea what they are screaming at it’s just one does it they all do it.

    Absolutely. Just this week a German soccer player (Timo Werner) had to be substituted out of the game against a Turkish team because the crowd noise was so loud. Check out the videos of Besiktas Football Club. The crowds there are insane. Think college basketball student sections but the entire stadium doing coordinated chants and jumping up and down.

    LMAO.

    Playoffs 6 of 8 years 2003-2010. Super Bowl in 2005. Beastquake in 2010, which measured on the Richter Scale.

    Typical east coast blowhard.

    We don’t want you out here, just so we’re clear.

  16. Well, I’m sure that’s been his experience in Indianapolis and New England, so that’s all he knows, but someone should have pointed out that there are more things on heaven and earth than are dreamt of in his in his philosophy.

  17. I haven’t watched BSPN in years and still talk about them and their looming Rolling Stone-style “sale”/bankruptcy. Same model can easily apply to the NFL under Goodell and the anti-American socialists. Have fun pretending you’re the good guys.

  18. I’ve been really impressed by Jacoby and his poise. Seems like nothing fazes this dude. I think as he continually develops he’s gonna prove he deserves to be a starter somewhere and hopefully Ballard could get a second rounder for him next year. The 2012s may be loud and all but their records isn’t no better than the Colts’. Should be a decent game if TY can torch that secondary like he did the first go around in ’13

  19. “Jacoby’s the first real qb the Colts have had since Johnny U walked off the field.”

    Now now, Jacoby still has a lot to prove and Goober was definitely a “real QB” even if he wasn’t so great in the playoffs.

    “It’s a shame how those Baltimore fans ran the team out of town.”

    The fans had nothing to do with it. The city was going to declare eminent domain on the team and steal it from the owner, that’s why they disappeared in the middle of the night and moved like that.

  20. “Well, I’m sure that’s been his experience in Indianapolis and New England, so that’s all he knows, but someone should have pointed out that there are more things on heaven and earth than are dreamt of in his in his philosophy.”

    You apparently don’t realize he actually meant that as a compliment to the Seattle fans, not an insult. He just pointed out the fans there are really loud and create a tough environment for the visiting teams, there was nothing derogatory about it.

    Boy you do get around just yesterday you were a Packers fan.

  22. He forgot that this game is played in the Pacific Daylight Time Zone. The game will start in the late afternoon, almost 2 hours before sunset, not at night. His biological clock may be 7:30pm at night though. The 12th will be screaming because they want to help their team avoid a 1-3 record.

  23. Nobody is afraid of the Seahawks. They’ve been on the decline since the Pats ruined them. It’s gonna be interesting if the Pats shoulda traded Garoppolo last off-season, at the peak of his value, and kept Brissett. What he’s done on the fly with the Colts offense is impressive. We’ll see.

    Its highly amusing that bandwagon Pats fans call Seahawks fans bandwagoners.

    We’ll see where your lot is in a few years.

    How convenient that you moved here a year before the superbowl so that it adds validity…..to your lies.

    Seahawks have had a crazy loud fan base almost it’s whole existence. Ken Behring years might be the only exception when he trid to move the team to LA and FANS stood in front of the moving trucks at 4 in the morning if I recall correctly.

    I am guessing you don’t know what the Kingdome is but that is where the fans were so deafening that the league instituted a new rule that the fans HAD to be quiet so the visiting qb could hear and call signals or the defense was called for a penalty. The qb would just step out and complain he couldnt hear and boom…5 yard penalty on the defense..because of Seattle. Thankfully they changed it back because it was a stupid rule.

    Look it up and sound more knowledgeable next time…if that is important to you.

  26. Sad to say, I won’t be enjoying this game because I enjoy watching the Seahawks lose. I will root against them, but I don’t expect them to lose to the Colts, especially if Andrew Luck is not the starting QB. OTOH, the Seattle O line is so horrendously bad that perhaps an upset is possible. After all, they almost lost to the 0-3 Fricso 49ers.

  27. The west coast does have fair weather. Love it. However, not all the fans are fair weather fans. The Golden State Warriors for example, were sold out even during the lean years. The 49ers have not won a SB since 1995, and yet their fans are still loyal. The San Jose Sharks also have a loyal following. The Giants have also had good fan support since moving to the downtown stadium. Candlestick was simply too cold and windy for baseball.

    Another delusional Pat’s fan. Seattle had your team beat before OC Bevell gave NE the game. That’s now 2 SB’s given to NE due to bad coaching. Atlanta runs the ball, instead of throwing and getting sacked, kicks a field goal instead of throwing and NE’s comeback is OVER!

    Heck, Texas had NE beat at home last week were it not for the dropped interceptions of Brady, and missed fumble recoveries.

    NE – luckiest team in the NFL.

  29. “You apparently don’t realize he actually meant that as a compliment to the Seattle fans, not an insult. He just pointed out the fans there are really loud and create a tough environment for the visiting teams, there was nothing derogatory about it.”

    I repeat…I’m sure he’s used to a fan-base that spends all day getting drunk, but that’s not the case with Seattle. You apparently don’t realize that…probably because you’re too drunk.

  30. “Seahawks have had a crazy loud fan base almost it’s whole existence. Ken Behring years might be the only exception when he trid to move the team to LA and FANS stood in front of the moving trucks at 4 in the morning if I recall correctly”

    Lol, yes all 10 fans. Fun fact: the reason why he wanted to move the team is nobody was going to the games at the Kingdome! The fair weathers jumped back onto the bandwagon a few years later when Shaun Alexander graced the cover of Madden.

  31. From the MyNorthwest story:
    ——-
    Years later, Behring’s son David admitted the move wasn’t about earthquakes, but about getting public money for a new stadium.

    Funny, you people were all upset about owners trying to get cities to pay for their stadiums just a short while ago…
