FC Denver writer Daniel Valenzuela offers his take on First Kick action. The item most of interest to Rapids fans will be his analysis of the Rapids performance in their 2-0 over the Crew, quoting Valenzuela: "The Colorado Rapids earned a victory but they were less than impressive against an awful Columbus Crew. The players don’t recognize the timing, decision making, and pace necessary play in Pareja’s system. Clearly, the team is a work in progress and isn’t ready for the likes of Real Salt Lake or the Los Angeles Galaxy. However, they aren’t far away. Coach Oscar Pareja needs a few more pieces for his vision to be realized in Colorado. Luckily, the Crew were so bad that Pareja pocketed three points, some easy credibility for his system, and confidence for his team." What do you guys think? Is Valenzuela being harsh or is he just being frank? How much work do you think the Burgundy still has to do to pick up what Papi is laying down in Commerce City?
