No more token appearances, no more attaboys. If a player is getting time these days, it is because their coach feels they've earned it. A couple stepped up and proved their coaches right. Others were disappointing. There has been plenty of commentary regarding the Chicago @ DCU game, in which Warren, despite the loss, shined the brightest. Jaqua and Mapp also impressed in their limited time, while Bobby and Convey were never able to put their stamp on the game. Over in Los Angeles, Donovan and his fellow Quakes looked lost on the big HDC field. When Donovan's preferred running mate, DeRo, was replaced by Faria, it was apparent that the comfort level was nowhere near where it needed to be. I think Frank Yallop has been the best coach in MLS over the past three years, but I have to question why Walker, who had just scored against LA a week prior, was not put in when DeRo went down. Faria was a waste. And though few of us got to see it, Nat Borchers and Kyle Beckerman led the charge and notched the goal and assist in Colorado's equalizing goal. In what must have been a pressure game, Borchers came up big with MoM honors. You've got to start thinking that the sky's the limit with this kid.
