The sky is not falling, at least not yet. That's the conclusion we've come to after the Seattle Sounders put together a solid, but ultimately disappointing, performance against the New England Revolution. There were a lot of things to like, such as the general passing and the play of the central midfield.
Of course, good passing doesn't necessarily lead to goals and that's something the Sounders are sorely lacking. Through five league matches, they've found the back of the net just two times and that's a legitimate area for concern.
To help us assess the situation, we asked Sounders play-by-play voice Ross Fletcher to share some of his insights. As always, he's a font of knowledge. We also got his take on the effect NBC's coverage of the EPL will have on MLS.
Finally, we took your questions ... lots and lots of your questions. If you stick around until the end, you'll also learn some rather embarrassing stuff about what songs make the boys cry. Cringe-worthy indeed.
