Player Profile #21: Adam Moffat

Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports

Yesterday we forgot (I forgot) #21. Today I give you The Beard!

This is a nice place to note that while the ordinal rankings make players seem dramatically different, sometimes they aren't. The last break point was between Zavaleta and Zakuani. Moffat and Shalrie are the next one. They are 3 average ranks apart (Shalrie averaged at 22.9 with Moffat at 19.7 and Caskey at 19.4). Sometimes there are significant differences in the community rankings and then there is Moffat/Caskey.

#21 Adam Moffat

Back when Moffat was acquired it seemed like a move to shore up the midfield defense and add a bit of rocket shot. It did not work out that way, but it was the theory and it was sound at the time. Adam's history was that he could be in the two band in a 4-2-3-1 or a decent CDM in 4-1-X-X systems. In Seattle he was merely a bit player in 2013.

Offense: He has a long shot. Like most long shots it is not accurate, but when it goes in he's truly something. There's enough quality there to continue taking them. Not a header of the ball. Not a strong passer at any distance.

Defense: Solid tackler. Does not need to go ground often. Tenacious, if a bit slow. Clogs space well in dead-ball situations. Quality positional awareness.

Physique: He's strong but slow. Very typical CDM, CM type in MLS. Will use his body. Can be beat on dribble. Lacks recovery speed.

Best Case 2014: He's got a high number to be a back-up CDM so he's got to figure out how to be a B2B wide mid. That means better passing contributions as a shuttler.
