It's hard to criticize Sigi Schmid. Over the decade + as an MLS coach he has proven himself to be one of the two or three best coaches in the league's history. The other two in the conversation both coached the US National Team. But there were some things that went wrong with the Sounders on Sunday and learnings from that performance must be carried forward into Leg Two. There is also little doubt that they will.

Preseason picks had the team of Beckham, Keane, Donovan, Gonzalez and Franklin (let’s not forget those two Rookie of Year players) as the MLS Cup and even CCL favorites.

It is time for that success to end.
