    First, we had an A+++ tailgate. 8 guys, two of those tents put together, then wrapped on 3 sides with a tarp to keep the wind out and the heat in. a heater going inside, and a big tv on a tailgate to watch the SF game, while we ate too much including the deep fried chicken my buddy made. it took a while to walk Rt1 after all that....

    the crowd was dressed for the frigid cold. thos you forget how much the body heat and wind block you get from the packed crowd in our section. we never really felt cold til the last 2 minutes after our entire section was gone except us.

    speaking of which, the crowd really hung in there and did NOT leave early in what was a blow out game. it was only the last 5-6 minutes when ppl really started leaving. guess a saturday night out was due!

    for some reason, our section kept doing that Tebow, Tebow chant. i didnt really like it, felt too high school. but it was funny.

    there were plenty of people in Tebow jerseys and denver attire. they didnt seem to get too much sh!t from the revelers.

    our defense looked tough. and we did after all the debate come out in a 3-4, with anderson mayo, spikes, ninko as the backers. i guess anderson played pretty well setting the edge as best i could tell.

    the gronk miracle catch happened right in front of us in the corner of the end zone. amazing play.

    the deion bomb was a stunner. the whole stadium hesitated. did he really catch that? is he really streaking down the sideline withthe ball? funny play.

    gronk looked open all night. it was fun to just watch him

    the hernandez running plays were curious. usually he would motion out of the back field, but then he stayed there, and made one of his amazing cuts on a sweep, coming down into out corner.

    i thought crowd was loud. i felt bad for the 300s, it looked windy up there.

    GREAT EXPERIENCE> SEE YOU ALL NEXY WEEK TO DO IT AGAIN

    If I can believe my TV, it was a derisive "TEEEEEE-BOOOOOW! TEEEEEE-BOOOOOW!"

    I didn't like it either. It seemed like extraneous piling on a guy who hadn't really done anything to deserve it. I wanted to give the dude a bro-hug in his post-game presser.

    Just an elongated "Teeeeeeeeeeeeebowwwwwwwwwwwwwww" in the fashion of how "Darryl" or "Roger" was chanted at Fenway.

    I didn't participate, too much respect for TT.

    yeah, but 'MEEEEEEDIAAAAAA........... MEEEEEEEDIAAAAAA' doesn't have the same ring to it.

    how was the crowd noise on 3rd down? I couldn't really tell on tv.

    When it mattered (really the first quarter) the noise was great in the stadium. After that, it fell off a cliff....understandably so, because of both the score and the fact that it was cold and windy.

    Denver players were dropping like flys the whole game. Was the crowd just getting annoyed at all the time stoppage or were they booing injuries?

    There was constant booing and heckling...particularly when one of the offensive linemen was crawling on the ground, and then 10 seconds later just fell down....and then got up a minute later and walked off without a limp.

    There seemed to be another epidemic of nohuddleitis. I was booing from my couch.

    It seemed they were suspicious that they were often happening during the Pat's no huddle.

    But I wasn't there.

    Yes, that's right. I was yelling at them for faking. The crowd was surprisingly astute last night.

    I was "teeeeeeeeeeeboooooowwwwwwwwwwwwww'ing" all night and loved it. It seemed more effective on 3rd down then just screaming, and it was more fun. I like Tebow but I wasnt there last night to make friends with him. **** it, if it's wrong to chant someone's name then maybe we should just blow kisses while he's on the field.

    It was an awesome night:rocker: The fans were into it, Gilette was rocking for awhile up til it was clearly a blowout.

    Did everyone at home catch Big Vince's booty shakin' when Spikes ended up with the grab under the pile? I hope so cuz it was a definite crowd pleaser LOL ;)

    I'm guilty of Teeeeboooooowing a few times, I like him and all but he didn't live up to his hype shall we say?:p

    Last night's game was Patriot's Football like it used to be and the fans left their pink hats at home at least around where we were.

    Next week can't come soon enough:rocker:

    Good stuff. I thought it was great fun hearing that on TV. I basically took it to be a good-natured backlash after the incredibly annoying super-hype that's been surrounding Tebow most of the year and especially the week leading up to last night's game.

    Bingo. And it was a nice change of pace from "let's go D!!"

    In response to a comment up thread...yes it was cold up in the 300s! But of course we stayed right until the end, and when the crowd did thin out it got even colder, amazing how much warmer it is when everyone is packed together. And un-like regular season games, no pink hats and we stood up the ENTIRE game (even half time, because of course by then we were so stiff from the cold if we sat down we might not have been able to get back up).

    And even if they were genuinely dinged on a play, I've never before seen so many players on the ground, having to be helped off because of a hand injury.

    there was plenty of booing in the stadium during these fake injuries. they really slow the game down, since the networks cut away to commercials with everyone.... sucks. (how about a rule change - any injury during a no huddle attack, the injured player has to stay out for 5 plays...? instead of just coming right back in)

    Between the Denver injuries and the TV timeouts the first two minutes of the 3rd quarter in the stadium seemed like it took 15-20 and that's when I started to begin to feel the cold air creeping in.
