Worst Team Of The Last Two Years

Umpteenth verse, same as the first.  At the moment I'm pretty sure the Charlotte Independence, not even using the Rapids they have on loan, would beat the Rapids.  This team is fundamentally broken right now.  Since the beginning of thee 2014 season Colorado is averaging .98 points per game, the lowest average in the league.  What changed between 2013 and 2014?  Oh yeah, we spent an offseason in a "coaching search" and signed Pablo 1 week before the season started.  Pablo must go.

Currently the Rapids are on pace to score 29.5 goals this season, and that's not setting the 4 goal outburst in Dallas aside as an outlier.  The worst offensive seasons in Rapids history were 29 goal seasons, but that was in 30 game seasons.  This year we play 34 games.  That's right, we have a legitimate chance of having our lowest goal total ever despite playing 4 more games.  Barring an amazing goal output the next 11 games we're probably going to set a record for lowest goals/game in team history.

On the flip side we have one of the best defenses in team history.  Twice we've given up 32 in 30 games.  Keeping that goals/game ratio means that if we give up 11 or less in the last 11 we'll set a new goals/game against record.  The absolute record of 32 total might be tough, that would mean only 7 goals given up the rest of the way.

Per SportsClubStats the Rapids now have the lowest chance of making the playoffs in the league at 1%.  No, that's not a typo. The Bodmer Line is now at 2.0-2.18 pts/game.

Man of the Match: Dillon Powers.  Came closest to actually doing something other than making up the numbers.
