The Houston Texans play at Seattle this week and CenturyLink Field has been known to be one of the loudest stadiums in the NFL. So loud that every time the Seahawks have a nationally televised game, the sideline reporter brings a decibel reader and compares the noise level to that of a jet engine.
Texans coach Bill O’Brien thought it wasn’t loud enough at practice so he instructed his coaches to blast the volume to get his players accustomed to the noise.
More specifically, he’s attempting to get his young quarterback Deshaun Watson prepared for the crowd noise. Apparently O’Brien is not the one picking the songs. “I love the music,” O’Brien said. “I have different tastes in music and I love music, all kinds of music. I don’t pick that music. I have a resident DJ named Jenerro that picks it for me. He’s a good guy. He does a good job. He takes requests, so if you guys have any requests when you’re out there during stretch. ”
Watson says the loudest college stadium he’s ever played in was Florida State. He performed well last year completing 27 of 43 passes for 378 yards and two touchdowns, though he did throw a pair of interceptions.
