What stadium is the toughest to play at as the visiting team?

Assuming the home team is winning. I will add options upon request to the poll.

Homerism aside, Pittsburgh is a tough place to play.

The stadium design is night mare for Kickers, and the field sucks.

RCA Dome:

1. It is LOUD.
2. They have a great record there.
3. It is LOUD.

No offense, but while it's loud, no dome can be the toughest place to play. Never have to deal with winds or weather conditions, and while it may tough on quarterbacks, it really can't be that much of a burden to players.

Even though I've never been I'd have to agree. Pittsburgh just looks ferocious in the winter, the winds in the endzone give kickers nightmares, and the fans are fanatical. I don't know why Pittsburgh isn't on the list.

Is this dependent upon the team? If so then I say Chicago just because we're such a good time at home right now.

If it's without regard to the quality of the team I would say Arrowhead or the Metrodome.

If the home team is winning by 10 it is hands down Pittsburgh.

101-1-1 when winning by 10.

The Rollerdome IMO is the toughest place to play. We've always had trouble up there and I can't stand that place.

Outdoors; probably Arrowhead, Seattle, or Chicago.

In December, it's Arrowhead. You just can't beat the Chiefs there during the winter. Call me a homer, but how is Denver not up there? Maybe they're not THE best but they, along with the Seahawks, were undefeated at home last season and so far have a perfect record at home (and don't forget the altitude)... so... they at least deserve recognition in the poll

Also the fact that Green Bay, Minny, and Atlanta are up there is a joke with Pittsburgh and Denver not... btw, this may receive some criticism but I Think you can put the Saints up there too... They've been great at home this season.

Read the Bold, Original Poster said "Home Team is winning"..

I find it hard to Win, In Pittsburgh, When Pittsburgh is winning by 10.

101 wins, 1 loss, 1 tie since Cowher has been coach. How is that Irrelevant?

He meant if it was a winning team, not if they were actually winning the game.

Besides..most teams that are able to run the ball are good at home when they're up by 10.

I say Chicago. Lights out defense + Cold weather + Extreme wind + Crazy Fans who've been waiting since 1985 for a year like this = toughest place.

10-19-2006, 05:11 PM
If it is when it is a good team, then it has to be the Metrodome or Lambeau. The Metrodome because everything about it is f'ed up. The lights, the air conditioning, everything. Lambeau, because well, when the packers are good, no one beats them in lambeau. But this year, probably soldier field. It is the same as lambeau, when the bears are good, they just dont lose there.

thetedginnshow
10-19-2006, 05:13 PM
In most cases, I think it'd be Qwest, maybe the RCA, and probably Arrowhead. But if we're talking about in the winter, places like Lambeau and Soldier Field are pretty ridiculous.

Its either Qwest or Chicago.

10-19-2006, 05:42 PM
I think the RCA Dome deserves some consideration, however it is KC.

San Diego Chicken
10-19-2006, 05:56 PM
When you factor in the altitude, I think Denver is the hardest place to play. It is as loud as any stadium, but the weather can get crazy in a hurry and the altitude is a very difficult adjustment for any team. No dome should be considered the toughest place to play. I know from the Chargers perspective, they have beaten the Falcons and Colts in their dome stadiums when they were two very good teams, yet they have been owned by Arrowhead and Mile High for years. I don't think the Chargers have ever beaten both KC and Denver on the road in the same year in my lifetime.

Assuming the home team is winning. I will add options upon request to the poll.

The RCA Dome deserves some consideration. The Colts are 17-2 there since 2004, the noise level consistently gets to that of a jet engine, and teams try to lobby complaints that the Colts "pump noise" into the stadium (though they've never done that when I've been there).

I still think the piped in noise was an issue. Jaguars.com Senior Reporter Vic Ketchman has noted that the RCA Dome is not nearly as loud as it was before the complaints. Several Steelers players also said there was a noticeable dropoff in the level of noise in the regular season game and the playoff game.

Does he have scientific evidence to back that? Because an independent study was done immediately after those accusations were made, and it was found that the next week against Tennessee (a team that wasn't even a competitor last season) the RCA Dome actually reached HIGHER decibel levels than it had the previous week. So, unless he can debunk that, or provide his own evidence to the contrary, I'll believe the scientific evidence.

just since shanny got here, we're 70-18, and that doesn't even begin to count about two more decades of excellence.

There was no scientific evidence. Ketchman and the Steelers' players were merely voicing their opinion that they felt the crowd level isn't as loud as it was before the accusations were made. It could be nothing more than coincidence.

I would vote for Philly but that's probably heavily influenced by the fact that I'm a Cowboys fan. Philly has to be at least top 2 or 3 for sure, the weather can be a factor late in the season and the fans are always loud and crazy, but the new Linc doesn't seem quite as intimadating as the old Vet.
