Or at least didn't screw up. I'm trying to think of players who didn't contribute to the loss.

1. Welker. I'm probably missing something, but he seemed to catch what was thrown his way and not make any mistakes.
2. Julius Thomas. Didn't get many chances, but didn't screw up.
3. Knighton- The middle of the line did good against the run. Don't think he is even in when the DL failed to get to Wilson numerous times.
4. Travaython- He seemed to make a few plays, and I can't remember him getting burned
5. Prater- Never had a chance to do anything. I blame the coaches for calling the pooch kick not him.

Is there anyone else? I know DT had a big game, but failing to get key first downs by not being aggressive and the fumble were huge miscues. OL stunk. Moreno even had a big fumble we at least recovered. DB's got burned over and again. Colquit stunk on his 1st punt, the other was OK, but not great. I can't recall a came where so many players on the team made so many mistakes.

Nate Irving

True. He had the biggest play of the game for the Broncos.

Yep. Nate Irving and that's it. Maybe Trevathan. I can't bear to re-watch. Seems like he was making an impact against yeast mode.

Irving did make a nice play despite somehow being matched against a WR. In fact, there were times where when Seattle had multiple WR sets on one side of the field, the Bronco defense looked lost and let guys run free and wide open. I don't think Del Rio called a very good game. It looked like they geared up for stopping Lynch but little else.

Knighton, Nate Irving, Danny T, and DRC (outside of a great throw didn't allow a big play) all came to play but that's it. I would give DT an A for effort because he was the only guy who could separate, but the fumble killed us.

Irving...Knighton...Danny T...DRC...Demaryius Thomas.

Say what you want, but DT came to play and he was literally the only WR Manning was favoring. His fumble was just a great play by the defender.

DRC didn't play well. Gave up a few first downs and the guy flat out has no interest in playing the run.

Did he? The only play I remember him giving up was the one over the middle later in the game when Wilson literally pinpointed it.

I don't want to turn back on that game though.

My 5 year old was so happy on that play - he wasn't really paying attention to the game anyways, but I jumped up and cheered for the first time the whole game so he says "We won the Superbowl! We won the Superbowl!" I tried explaining it, but he didn't get it and was so happy I just let him be.

You watch Irving is the starting MLBer next year.

Trevaton, Miller and Irving will be the starting LBers next year and a damn good trio.

DRC is a must sign, a starting safety comes in FA.

Denver may kick Franklin inside and look for a RT or possibly Clark

Does TJ Ward work opposite Moore? Who knows what is in store for Champ.

The DTs are stout. We need to add a couple pass rushers like SEA did with Arvil and Bennett.

Maybe Q Smith will be a pleasant surprise.

Irving didnt show much this year. Couldn't even start how is he the answer yet again next year? They made the mistake last offseason and ignored that position thinking Irving was the answer. They can't make that mistake again.

Agreed. Irving May be good depth, but thats about it. Denver needs to address LB in FA and/or the draft.
