There was a bit too much clenching and not enough clinching in this one.

Rate these handsome chaps.

It's hard to put your finger on just what felt off about this match, but something wasn't working. Call it out-of-sync, lethargic, or a number of other descriptors that Twellman and Healey came up with, but this wasn't the performance of a team firing on all cylinders going (hopefully!) into the playoffs. Still, you can never turn your nose up at a point on the road, no matter when it comes in the season.

So, how harshly do you punish Tyrone Mears for his fateful pass? How well do you reward Obafemi Martins for deflecting a ball into the net to save the point? Is Clint Dempsey out of form or tired or did he turn 40 overnight?

All these choices and more await you below.

Here's the scale:

Blank - player did not play enough to judge
1 - not a pro (USL/NASL/MLS) quality performance
4 - average USL starter
6 - average MLS starter
9 - MLS All Star
10 - MLS MVP-quality performance
