I agree wholeheartedly dude. I hate it...when the Offense is on the field STFU. people are shouting Go Skins! etc on offense. I just shake my head like ..really? seriously? make noise on D and especially on 3rd and 4th down on D.
“I just wanted to say to the fans … in D.C. and across the nation, they’ve been great for us, cheering us on. At away games they show up in the masses and at home they really made it feel like a home-field advantage. We said this when I was in college, ‘We got a chance to sit at the dinner table and experience success and it was a good meal. But now we want to go back to get dessert.’ We’ll be ready to get dessert next year.”
Robert Griffin’s last words at the press conference.
I am constantly trying to get people to make noise on defense....
I am also trying to get those same people that won't make a peep on defense shut the hell up when we are on offense.
sounds great in theory.. but as someone with Season tickets , every time my section (125) is quiet on a Skins possesion the opposing team starts their chant....so if you want me to be quiet on O and let the other teams fans go at it...you can go to hell
Irritates the hell out of me.
Edit - I'm talking sports in general here not specifically FedEx which I can't speak to as I have yet to get over for a game.

I was at the Giants game. It didn't seem that noisy to me when we were on offense. I don't do the wave. I rarely yell unless a big play happens. It's not that I'm sitting on my hands, it's that I'm concentrating on the play. And I know the fight song word for word. And you can look at the big screen now and sing along.

Home- Dallas, NY Giants, Philadelphia, Detroit, Chicago, San Francisco, Kansas City, San Diego
Away- Dallas, NY Giants, Philadelphia, Green Bay, Minnesota, Atlanta, Denver, Oakland
Thread title is a little over blown but I do agree with the overall tone of the OP. I was at the Cardinals game & I found myslf trying to silence my section multiple times during the 4th Q while we were on offense and trying to pump up the crowd multiple times during the game while we were on D. Oh and just for the record, I noticed the stadium was a little more empty than normal (as it is most times when Arizona comes to town) but there were about 95% Skins fans in the stadium.

By all means, try to 'help' them with more noise.
I can see it now on every message board of every team we'll play at home... Hey, you know if you go to Redskins games and chant "Defense" you can get their crowd to help you distract their own offense?
A huge die hard crown that's totally on the same page is most definitely the exception and not the rule. Seems pointless to get mad about it.
