Seahawks coach Pete Carroll on who stood out against the Broncos

What is a bigger deal than the result of preseason games is how specific players performed.

So asked after Seattle’s 21-16 loss to Denver here Thursday night who he thought initially stood out, here is what coach Pete Carroll said:

“(Defensive end) Cassius Marsh caught my eye. He did a nice job. I thought Tarvaris Jackson did a nice job playing. It was fun to see (QB) Terrelle Pryor for the first time. He was obviously all over the field trying to create when we had some troubles up front and he was compensating for that. (WR) Paul Richardson did a real nice job in his first game. … He did a great job for his first time out; I love to see that. I thought (RB) Demitrius Bronson ran the ball real nice at the end of the game when he had his chances.”

Marsh finished with four tackles and the team’s only sack, though he could have, and maybe should have, had another on a play that led to a Denver first down and kept alive the drive that won the game for the Broncos.

Pryor was 9-16 for 137 yards but also threw the interception at the end of the game that helped drop his passer rating to 58.6.

Jackson was his usual steady self going 5-7 for 47 yards and leading a scoring drive on one of his two possessions.

Richardson was Seattle’s leading receiver with four catches for 37 yards.

And Bronson had 22 yards on five carries.

As Carroll said, a review of the film will surely yield some other opinions on specific players.

Richardson via Twitter offered up this thought on the game:
