Colorado Rapids Can Tie All-Time Loss Record With Two More Dropped Results

The Colorado Rapids can tie an undesirable record if they lose their final two games of the season.

The Colorado Rapids, I think, are a good enough team to beat Chivas USA on Oct. 20. That's a good thing, because if they lose to Chivas in LA they'll be facing an awful record. Colorado would go into DSGP against Houston on the 27th with 20 losses, one away from the franchise record. A bad game against Houston would then seal the deal and tie the 2012 team for the worst record in Rapids history.

The 1997 team that shockingly went to the MLS Cup final held second place with 18 losses until Saturday's dropped game against the San Jose Earthquakes.

Quite frankly, hitting that record this season would be far worse than it was in 1996, considering the league didn't allow ties back then. Of course, only having four draws in an entire season isn't much different than having none at all, but it's still a daunting record to be facing.

On the bright side, Colorado will not finish with the fewest wins of any Rapids team, historically. The 2001 Rapids won a measly five games during the short 26 game season.
