    We've played well against Chicago this year...if nothing else we will bunker down and lose 1-0 at home and win 1-0 on the road to move on.

    Where's the option for "stay tight and pull out a draw at home, then get crushed like an empty beer can in Chicago"?

    You know what? I don't care. We're in the playoffs, and only the incurably myopic could say that there hasn't been substantial improvement over the last two years.

    I'll take it, and hope for better next year--for the first time in a long time, there's genuine reason to hope that next year will be better!

    I think we can pull off at least a win against Chicago. Get that and a draw and we go through. We match up well with NE and NY/NJ, so a victory there is possible. I have no idea how we would do if we make it to the final. Momentum is everything and a good start against Chicago could propel us far.

    We haven't won a game in over a month. :(

    In the most recent meeting between the two teams, Chicago won 3-1 in Naperville, getting 11 shots on goal against DC's 3 (one of which was a Hristo PK).

    Since that game, Chicago is 6-2-2 heading into today's game with the Crew. All season, the team has surrendered 12 goals at home in 15 games (DC has scored three).

    Meanwhile, DC is 3-4-3, and is 0-2-3 in its last five games. DC has not scored more than two goals in a game since July 27th.

    One thing that is clear: Hristo must see significant time. He's got one goal and two assists (of his five goals and five assists) in two appearances against the Fire this season.

    In order for DC to have a chance, it has to win the home leg. Going to Chicago needing a win (or at least a draw and some mini-game or PK luck) will be disasterous.

    My predictions: DC 1, CHI 1 at RFK, DC 0, CHI 3 at Soldier Field.

    DC 2 Chicago 1 at RFK, Chicago 1 DC 0 at Chicago. United moves on because of total goals.

    Then we stomp on NY and lose to KC in the Cup.

    I think Preki is going to blow through the playoffs this year. He will have 4 goals in the 5 games.

    1 - total goals of those scores is 2-2.

    2 - there's only the potential for 4 games in the playoffs.
