Antonio Smith's final request for fans

Posted Dec 19, 2013

Antonio Smith and J.J. Watt talk about the importance of fans making noise in Sunday's game against Peyton Manning and the Broncos.

Antonio Smith had just one request for fans on his season-finale “Antonio Smith Show” on Texans Radio.

“Fans, I know, I know, I know,” Smith said. “I know it’s been hard on you guys but we are going to need some of that loudest stadium in the league this week, just for Texans pride. Don’t lose the Texans pride because if we can keep it loud, we can keep him (Peyton Manning) frustrated.”

Manning, known for orchestrating his offense at the line of scrimmage, shushes his home crowd before each snap. If Texans fans can make noise while Manning is trying to call plays, it hinders his effectiveness. This season, two of the three Broncos losses have come on the road.

“Obviously we would appreciate as much noise as the fans bring,” Watt said. “We appreciate the support they’ve given us through some tough times. We’re excited to play one more game here at home, and we’re hoping it’s a great one.”

In the final home game of the season, the Texans will honor fans with “Fan Appreciation Day” in Sunday’s game against Denver.
