    Should have never been in a position to run into that pile..

    No idea why Kliff got conservative.

    Just noticed Daniels missed a block on that Kyler TD run.

    If he's still ahead of Jordan Thomas after the bye... @Harry

    Ridiculous to name goats after this game.

    Drake and Kirkpatrick we’re both fighting injuries throughout the game.

    Perhaps the biggest game against arguably the best team in the league in the last 5 years so you can keep your goats in the barn.

    Heroes:
    Chase - runs angry but balanced
    Byron - looks like he has the makings to be a complete corner
    Zane - missed one he should’ve never been attempting in the first place but totally redeemed himself
    Defense - 2nd half/OT they were clutch

    GOATS:
    Kliff - went full potato in crunch time
    Isabella - not sure I even want him out there as a decoy anymore
    Daniels - you shouldn’t hear his name more than once a game
    fans - too much green in the seats

    TJ, great point. I DID NOT REALIZE they only scored seven points. Thanks for pointing it out.

    In fairness to Kliff on the 4th down call.

    Kyler maybe had Hopkins open to the right side.

    He'd have to fit over Bobby Wagner

    Kind of wish we rolled him out.

    Can't understand how Kliff is a goat. Yes he made some bad decisions, but he is also largely responsible for the overall effectiveness of the offense today and they were very effective.

    Effective offense is expected vs a terrible defense. He continues to butcher time management. We got lucky on the FG leaping penalty after draining time running Drake down by ten. Then obviously butchering the first FG attempt in OT. It’s like he has no concept of certain situations.

    Sometimes he does look like a OC (see a bit of uneasiness in his eyes) looking for guidance from a HC.

    If we can somehow make the playoffs I think his confidence/swagger will grow into next season.

    That might be a slight overstatement as they are like 10th worst in points allowed per game. They are the worst in yards though so your comment tracks in that regard.

    That being said Seattle is also the leagues best offense in both yards and points. We are 2nd in yards and 9th in points.

    Gonna give Zane some hero points. Yes he missed the FG but then Simmons wouldn't have had his INT.

    Imagine standing there for a 2nd time a few minutes after missing a game winning FG.

    He also had the kick to get 3 back at the end of 1st half. Tie game FG at the end of regular time and the game winner.

    Come on man Kirk got to be in hero's. He didn't have a big stat line but he had 2 TD's.

    Kirk. 2 TD's. There was a time not so long ago we were slating him for his lack of TD's and he has 5 in 4 now. In fact I'm pretty sure he leads the team in TD's fairly comfortably.
