Default Who actually played a good game last night

This will be a very short list but I feel we should lighten the mood and point out a few positives.

Let me give this a preface here. I watched the game once and will not watch it again. So this os on a one watch basis.

Trevathan. He played well. He has played amazing all season. I seriously loved Wpodyard since he has been here but Danny has played so well that WW is expendable. I think he played well las night.

Montee Ball. He had to deal with a ragdoll offensive line and actually got some yards.

I will think of some more later but probably not because we sucked.

I thought DT sucked. Big numbers but played soft.

I did forget about our DTs. Zero run game up the middle.

Irving. You'd know he'd kept the head down all week and played with focus. DT was about the only one on offence who showed up at all.

Knighton/Trevathan on defense played very well. I'm going to rewatch the film when they have the coaches tape but Irvin seemed like he did ok. Run defense wasn't the problem in this game except on those sweeps. I thought the run defense did ok there.

On offense... ... ... Welker? DT had a crucial fumble. 13 catches or whatever, fumble and they drive down and put the dagger in us making it 36-0. So unclutch. Make them work for these turnovers!

The 36th point was the dagger?

Please rewatch it for me. I can't.

Well it being reported that DT played with a separated shoulder, most likely after the Chancellor hit.

If this is true... then you gotta give it up to DT.

You're not the first to say it but I certainly didn't see it this way. Yes, the fumble sucked. But he ran several screen catches into heavy traffic, caught a sideline ball that he had to win a physical battle for, and caught a TD while being tackled before the ball arrived. If not for the fumble, and scaring the hell out of me by giving up first down yardage a couple times trying to make a play, he had a very good game to my eyes.

I was just annoyed that he kept trying to be Barry sanders and get around players when he needed to just dive forward to get a first down. That happened about 3 times, then the fumble happened...

DT,Trev,Irving & Pot Roast played well.
Welker was ok. DRC was OK in the pass game but they kept him out of the run game. That's about it though.

Treyvathan and the defense in general. I mean, after awhile the dam broke, but the defense was playing tough football for a good chunk of that game. It was special teams and a nervous, choking offense that kept giving Seattle excellent field position that did the game in more than anything.
