When the Seahawks drafted wide receiver David Moore in 2017, he knew all about Seattle’s 12th Man. He knew home games would be loud.

But he didn’t know just how loud until he experienced it.

“It’s crazy,” Moore said on After Hours with Amy Lawrence. “They get loud. You can barely hear the person standing right beside you – not even two feet away.”

Moore remembers trying to communicate with fellow rookie wide receiver Amara Darboh last season.

“I was yelling at Darboh last year the first time I got to experience it, and I was sitting there yelling his name, but he could not hear me,” Moore said. “I was like, ‘What is going on here? Is this how loud they are?’ It kind of threw me in a loop. But it’s amazing playing in front of them. You just feed off their energy and you just have a blast out there. It’s fun watching them get excited and stuff like that. It’s a great atmosphere.”

The Seahawks (4-5) host the Packers (4-4-1) on Thursday Night Football. Kickoff is at 8:20 p.m. ET.
