Jones gets extra work in Revs debut

The Day-After Report: Testing their patience

The frustration began to settle in around the 30th minute of Seattle's 1-0 victory over Colorado on Saturday at CenturyLink Field, sometime between DeAndre Yedlin's injury scare after a late Edson Buddle tackle and Obafemi Martins' turning shot off Marco Pappa's chip pass. The place of play slowed, but it was hard to put your finger on why -- the Sounders were still controlling the play and pinning Colorado back.
