    For those that have attended games there-how loud and shaky does the stadium get(to the point where the QB has to shout his audibles/the O can't hear a thing)?

    Just curious(and NOT making excuses on my behalf), but to be honest, the TX Stadium crowd is *too nice*(it's been like that for years). Don't know why, but even THE LOUISIANA SUPERDOME(the same stadium that hosts the "Paper Bags" team) can get loud and shaky, which is sad.

    Gillette typically doesn’t get very loud compared to other stadiums I have been too. I don’t think it’s the fans, I just think it is because of the way it’s built.

    The loudest I have ever heard it was after the AFC Championship game vs. the Colts (when BB took the podium).

    Never heard it louder than that moment.

    Gillette is not as good as the old Fox for crowd noise. The seats are much farther back from the field in general, and there are the red seats in the middle section between the 20s (club seats) that can be empty during bad weather or bad performance games. Last year the crowd was pretty subdued for many games as the team was very inconsistent. The two games I attended this year were nice and loud (San Diego & Buffalo). All playoff games have always been loud IMO.
