Qwest Field in Seattle is about as loud an environment as there is in the NFL, which can give visiting teams difficulties. But it’s not always so daunting.

Antrel Rolle, who played there every year while a member of the Cardinals in the NFC West, said a good performance by the visiting team can take away the home field noise advantage.

“It definitely is one of the loudest stadiums I’ve ever played in, but at the same time I’ve also heard it be one of the quietest stadiums I’ve ever been in,” Rolle said on his weekly WFAN Radio segment. “I’ve seen it when it’s ridiculously loud, but they have to be winning in order for it to be that way. When you go in and you take care of business against the Seahawks, you can hear a pin drop.”

Rolle also said he abides by a motto when it comes to being a visiting team.

"When we're playing at home, we bring them to their feet," he said of the crowds. "When we're playing away, we bring them to their knees."
