    Sure. But Tannehill has such a grip on this offense with his teammates, they will communicate via hand motions easily.

    I agree with SICK. Philbin has probably went through a ton of mental reps and will be ready for all scenarios in the 'Dome.

    Like the handmotions you use to call the boys over to your camper-wagon?

    They can communicate by scent. That's how Jonathan Martin got the nick name "Big Weirdo".

    Philbin does prepare his teams well.

    This will be a real indication of that. If we keep miscommunication to a minimum.

    If we don't waste timeouts on offense because of confusion, don;t have false starts and WRs running the wrong play because they didn't get the call... that will all speak to Phibin's staff doing a great job and Tannehill too!

    Yes, one of the bigger advantages in the NFL.

    Agreed. This game is a huge litmus test as to where the Dolphins are as an organization. Thing is, so were the last 3 games. There's no denying the magnitude of tonight's game, yet I'm pretty confident we all know they're going in the right direction and tonight should be a great game for us as fans.

    I say bring the noise, I truly want to see how these guys react tonight.


    On a side note looking back: How much of the crowd noise in CenturyLink Field influenced the outcome of the game vs the 49ers? At the time it looked like it had a huge impact.

    Brees takes his game to another level at home, especially on national television, he's won 10 in a row and 13 of his last 14 primetime games at the Dome.

    I'm sure all of the teams that succumbed to the Saints' home field advantage were well coached too, in terms of silent counts, hand signals, etc. Wouldn't just assume that Joe Philbin has some sort of magic sauce to make it work.

    It'll be a nice feather in his cap if he does make it work though. Here's hoping.

    Just the fact that you're going to a silent count or hand signals inherently declares an advantage. How big of an advantage? Thats debatable, but you'd prefer to be able to hear things.

    And if the jerkoff motion ends with a web slinger motion, cut off the fade into a back shoulder throw.

    The fan is now getting the publicity it craves..

    The fan now realizes it can impact their players, their performance, and their opponents.

    The fan is getting smarter about their performance.

    The fan is going to another level once inside the building..a real purpose.

    The one difference in the equation that separates real intimidation..

    The venue..It must be constructed properly for the fan to become a star..

    The super dome has the venue to inspire, to go in there and execute will mean our team is much farther ahead of schedule than anyone thought and reason for us to go fu&$in ballistic.

    Suits don't get it..but every building that goes up without this critical incredible advantage built into the spec, the dumber the suit is...

    Could be one of the greatest investment oppurtunities a smart business man could ever ask for, if built correctly, and marketed correctly.

    NO is a great home field advantage. It's not just the stadium, it's the whole town. City Hall closes down an hour early on Saint Monday Night games. It seems like everybody is wearing Saint's gear. No work gets done that day. It's all about tailgating and the game. Great football energy on Saint Monday night game days.

    Fan strategy..all part of the plan, and all part of making a great culture..the catalyst is the building..

    Considering the circumstances, winning tonight could perhaps be on a level as exhilarating as beating the Jets to win the division.

    The catalyst is Don Jones knocking Sproles' *** out on the opening kickoff.

    You mean the building that was built back in 1975?

    How many times from the pre-Brees era did the Saints only win half or less of their home games? 25!!! Only 6 times did they win more than half their home games.

    Oh, but those were just bad teams? You know what % of wins came while in the presence of their "catalyst" but before Drew Brees' arrival? 51.69%

    Let me say that again. Only 51.69% of their wins came in the presence of their catalyst. For a team who possesses such a magical device of culture and fan strategy, how could they possibly ever have essentially the same odds of winning at home versus away?

    No, the building is definitely the catalyst.

    Additionally, the team itself is more a catalyst than anything now. The crowd would have rocked Tulane Stadium once they came back from being displaced by Hurricane Katrina. The team was the uniting force for the city and the crowd, not the damn stadium.

    One of the things I hate about our stadium - the fans are so far removed from the field of play. Look at our sidelines and all you see are vast open spaces between the fans and the players. So different from the Orange bowl where they were right up on the backs of the benches. Even if we got a huge stadium upgrade I doubt that it will help our fans be more involved in the game. :sad:
