This is a good observation. I suspect that you are correct. One thing that I have also noticed is that Bradley is taking a less-present role on the field. He is sticking to his play and is not really doing a lot of directing. I think that's by design too, and that Berrhalter has probably tried to allow for leaders to emerge in a vacuum rather than having them take the role from someone else. It seems to fit the nature of these young guys better. And lets be honest, this team now belongs to the young guys. Bradley is a participant but the team does not rise and fall on his play. It absolutely depends on the play of these young guys.
