    is 6 for the Playoffs (possibly 5).

    GP PTS
    Chicago 25 43
    MetroStars 26 38
    DC 26 37
    NE 26 33
    Crew 26 31

    Maximum points the Crew can earn in the remaining 4 games is 12. Which would give them 43 pts. We would need 6 points to get 44 pts. We have the edge vs. the crew in head to head series (We won 2, lost 1, tied 1) so realistically, we would need 5 to get to their max of 43 pts.

    Some interesting games coming up
    excluding our home and away games with the revs on 10/18 and 10/25

    DC @ Columbus (10/4)
    Columbus @ Fire (10/10)
    DC @ New England (10/11)
    Columbus @ DC (10/19)
    Chicago @ Columbus (10/26)

    Columbus seems to have the hardest schedule. If they lose only one game, and we only win one game, we're in.

    We better be qualified for the playoffs by the time we play the last two games against the Revs because they most likely will be needing to win both and probably will beat us knowing this fickle team of ours.
