I really do not understand why this concept is so incredibly difficult to understand. When your team's offense is on the field, it is an advantage if they can easily communicate with one another. If the fans in the stadium are loudly cheering while their offense is on the field, it makes it more difficult to communicate. Throughout the game, Peyton is waving his hands for the crowd to quiet down to no avail. In the second touchdown drive in the 2nd quarter, he is even forced to run over to a tight end or receiver to tell him in his ear what to do.
Even today, if you watch a Colts game at Lucas Oil Stadium while the Colts are on offense, you can hear a pin drop. There is not a sound being made loud enough to carry to the field. Why is this concept so much easier for Colts fans to grasp?
In all honesty, what can the team do to better educate the fans? Does the PA announcer do the courtesy of informing the fans that being quiet while the offense has the ball is a big advantage? If not, the Broncos should seriously consider doing this.
