Our defense right now
Fine, no problems here.
Damien Perrinelle A 33-year-old coming off an injury-plagued season.
Gideon Baah Coming off a shattered leg.
Aaron Long A 24-year-old who has spent virtually his entire pro career in the 3rd division
Hassan Ndam A raw 18-year-old
Jordan Scarlett a Third-Round pick
Sal Zizzo Is Sal Sizzo
Connor Lade coming off ACL surgery
Ethan Kutler A late second-round pick who has never played outside back.
This is not good. I could at least tolerate an unreliable defense if it was stocked with young talent with high ceilings. But it's not. Our defense is Lawrence and Collin, and then a bunch of guys who are either major injury worries or fringe MLSers. With maybe one wild card in Hassan Ndam.
