Nobody knows that better than Chargers coach Marty Schottenheimer who coached the Chiefs from 1989 to 1998.
"I've never been in an outdoor environment that produces more noise than Arrowhead Stadium," said Schottenheimer. "It's tough. You're going to have problems.
"You just have to keep them to a minimum and overcome them."
"It's loud," defensive end Marcellus Wiley said. "I've never been anywhere louder. An OutKast concert maybe, other than that, no. I don't know how many fans will be there, but we know it'll still be rockin and when they sing the national anthem we're still gonna hear 'Chiefs!' "
The Chargers have lost five straight years at Kansas City's Arrowhead Stadium and the Chiefs have won those games handily outscoring the Chargers 150-37.
"I hear all the stories about how bad the Chargers have played there in the past, but last year was pretty close," running back LaDainian Tomlinson said. "So I'm really encouraged."
Tomlinson doesn't know any better, and that's a good thing.
If it approaches the sound in the Edward James Dome in St. Louis the Bolts are in trouble. During that game it was hard to think above the crowd noise. In that game the offensive line committed far too many offsides penalties.
Drives are sustained through patience and the team working together and penalties hurt. There is no way to practice for that except to anticipate each others moves and stay focused on the center. Too often the Chargers will deviate from that plan.
Of course taking the crowd out of the game early is a solid gameplan. Give them nothing to cheer about and the 12th man is nothing but air.
