It could be the crowd getting them pumped, it could be the turf that helps their speed, it could be the crowd noise they pump in from the speakers but whatever it is, they're better in the Dome.

Is there any proof of this, I heard that some NFL teams were complaining about how loud it was in the Dome, but as far as I knew, it was proven false. Do you have a link to the articles concerning this?

From Jaguars.com Ask Vic

[ QUOTE ]
Cory from Jacksonville: Have you heard the accusations of the Colts piping crowd noise through the speakers? The NFL isn't investigating it because they don't want their precious Colts to be cheaters.
Vic: Yeah, I was surprised when I read a story that said the NFL is satisfied that the Colts arenít piping noise into the RCA Dome and that theyíre not going to investigate. Itís especially surprising since media people have cited microphones on poles and reported accusations that those microphones are used to capture crowd noise and amplify it when the visiting team comes to the line of scrimmage. ESPN's Ed Werder also reported that the Colts pumped up the volume at the RCA Dome this past Monday. The Colts issued a statement denying the charge. Iíve talked to people who have no doubt that the Colts have been piping in crowd noise. Iím really starting to believe the Colts are being favored by the league.

Question in standard, answer in bold. It's a question and answer part of the website. It's from 12/2/05, the week after the Pitt/Colts game.

Well I apologize for questioning, that's definitive enough for me. Also, something you might be interested in, as I understand you're a Jags fan, I heard from this guy I know, that his barber cuts hair for the limo driver for Peyton Manning. Now he said that he was told that once both Manning and Colts GM Bill Polian were in the limo and Polian mentioned putting poison in Leftwich's soup (not Campbell's chunky, that's McNabb's gig), which might explain why he got hurt. If I were you I'd warn Jags GM James Harris that there's foul deeds afoot.

Just a freindly heads up.

Lol at citing jaguars.com as proof that the Colts are pumping in noise. The fact of the matter is that the dome really amplifies things a lot. The easiest way to tell is when there are a decent number of opposing fans in the stadium. Yesterday there was a decent but not huge number of KC fans in the building and it is surprising how loud a vocal minority can be in there.

Vic is a reliable source and is not extremely biases compared to some writers(say...New York writers?) I wouldn't cite it if I did not feel it was credible, cause I wouldn't believe the author.

Do I really think the Colt's pump in noise? The side of me that has a brain, no way they do this and like you said, it's a dome and the sound is amplified. The fan side of me says YES!!!
