Rapids vs. Timbers - Goat Of The Match

Who was the worst player on the pitch against the Portland Timbers?

USA TODAY Sports

Who was the worst player on the field against the Portland Timbers? Truth be told, there were very few performances that really inspired much head shaking, but still, a few guys probably could have done better. Here's the three guys that came to my mind.

Brian Mullan - Mullan had another blah game playing as an outside back -- though I think it was his best affair so far this year and he did have his fair share of solid plays, almost half of his passes went wanting and nobody on the Rapids was dispossessed more often than Brian.

Atiba Harris - It was a bit of a ticky-tack foul if we're being honest, but Atiba Harris getting beat in the box and attempting to kick his man instead was still a pretty awful play for the penalty that the Rapids gave up. Harris didn't have a particularly good game otherwise, with missed throw-ins, crosses and other possession follies after coming in late.

Edson Buddle - I can't put too much of the blame on Buddle here, since he seemed like he wasn't anywhere near full fitness. Still, he was rather slow and his hold-up play was overshadowed by Deshorn Brown almost the entire game. For his efforts, didn't have a single shot.

Who do you think was the Goat of the Match?
