Broncos at Seahawks: The 10 Things I Liked and the 10 Things I Didn’t

Preseason is more interesting than the regular season to me, but that doesn’t mean I enjoy the preseason more. The fascination of the preseason is simply figuring out who should belong on the 53-man roster. The score may not matter at the end of the day, but the entire’s team roster is heavily dependent on who shows up when they’re called upon. With that, I begin this year with my list of things I did and didn’t like.

What I liked:

  1. Brock Osweiler dissected arguably one of the best defenses in the league.
  2. Wade Phillip’s defensive genius showed up keeping Seattle to -5 rush yards and 10 yards total in the first quarter and strong throughout the game
  3. Shane Ray shows why we moved up in the draft
  4. Shaquil Barrett is making a case why he should be on the active roster
  5. Ronnie Hillman is ridiculously fast
  6. Our starting offensive line mostly removed our worries
  7. Trevor Siemian shows the world why Kubiak hand-picked him
  8. Anunike was dominant every time he stepped on the field
  9. Broncos remained relatively injury free
  10. Pete Carroll getting nailed by the referee (gif below)

What I didn’t like:

  1. Our special teams defense is awful
  2. Fumbles on offensive  special teams
  3. Our inability to score in the redzone
  4. Montee Ball had sparks of greatness, but they were few and far between
  5. Connor Barth on kick-offs
  6. Zac Dysert was unimpressive to say the least
  7. Our second offensive line was poor
  8. A few plays in the second half where our defense had 3-4 men around a receiver and the catch was still made
  9. We couldn’t stop the screen plays
  10. Kapri Bibbs didn’t even play
