Glass half full...

At least it's close and a short road trip for us fans

If we somehow win and New England upsets Atlanta we could actually host New England


Glass half empty...

Lmfao we ain't winning shit but at least we don't have to spend a lot of time or money driving down the Turnpike to see them get knocked out

While I would not bet on a Metro win, Philadelphia ended the season in even worse form over their last five games than Metro.

Losing to DC would’ve made this shit- stain of a season complete. Losing to Philly is not the worst thing. DC, ATL or boy city would be worse as well IMO. And something tells me Arena has a trick up his sleeve. Don’t discount NE.

So we could lose at home!

We are good enough to beat the best teams, and bad enough to lose to the worst teams.

If there were ever a time for blind optimism, its the playoffs.

Gonna disagree.    The last thing we need is another team with a legitimate claim to a rivalry, ad knocking us out this year would give Philly a whole bunch of that.

Why do you say that? What's wrong with having many "rivals"? It's not like we're competing for cups, so these rivalries might be all we're going to win, other than random games in July.

Well, murillo should not play. He had his chance to prove that he was a legit starter but has shown that he is a complete bust.

Duncan should start during the playoffs.

.............White/BWP..........
Royer/Muyl....Rza/Kaku.....Sims/Muyl
...........Davis...Caseres......
Lawerence...Long....Parker....Duncan
...............Robles.............

If we play this line up we may have a chance.

The issue doesnt appear to be that of choice. Duncan has been starting. The problem is, will he be healthy in time for this game?

Kaku > Rza. Muyl off the bench early - he's been fired up about not starting and will be raring to go. Hopefully Duncan is healthy, but if not 100%, definitely start Murillo and not Buck or Lade.

Backline and Robles need to be perfect if we're to progress, today was a nightmare.

We've usually come into the playoffs as a higher seed/host/Shield winner with high expectations and flamed out. I'd always wonder to myself what if we one year we just barely limped into the playoffs without any pressure or expectations and see if we could go on some sort of crazy miracle run. Well here we are. Let's do this!
