When you factor in the altitude, I think Denver is the hardest place to play. It is as loud as any stadium, but the weather can get crazy in a hurry and the altitude is a very difficult adjustment for any team. No dome should be considered the toughest place to play. I know from the Chargers perspective, they have beaten the Falcons and Colts in their dome stadiums when they were two very good teams, yet they have been owned by Arrowhead and Mile High for years. I don't think the Chargers have ever beaten both KC and Denver on the road in the same year in my lifetime.

The hardest NFC venues, IMO, are Seattle and Green Bay.

The RCA Dome deserves some consideration. The Colts are 17-2 there since 2004, the noise level consistently gets to that of a jet engine, and teams try to lobby complaints that the Colts "pump noise" into the stadium (though they've never done that when I've been there).

I still think the piped in noise was an issue. Jaguars.com Senior Reporter Vic Ketchman has noted that the RCA Dome is not nearly as loud as it was before the complaints. Several Steelers players also said there was a noticeable dropoff in the level of noise in the regular season game and the playoff game.

Does he have scientific evidence to back that? Because an independent study was done immediately after those accusations were made, and it was found that the next week against Tennessee (a team that wasn't even a competitor last season) the RCA Dome actually reached HIGHER decibel levels than it had the previous week. So, unless he can debunk that, or provide his own evidence to the contrary, I'll believe the scientific evidence.

The easiest is probably carolina. The crowd makes minimal noise at all times and doesn't know the meaning of the word third down.

That's easy, Denver has the best home record over the last 20 years. Adjusting to their cities above sea level, has proved to be very difficult for every team.

we have the best home record over the last *thirty-five* years. i'm also quite sure we have the best home record since 2000 (though i certainly haven't counted the games).

how denver wasn't even an option on this....
