Recapping the Rankings: Where FC Dallas Fell After Week 11

Four points out of two games at home in a busy Week 11 was more than enough for some people.

Power Rankings are always a crap shoot but they are always fun to break down as well. Each week (or so), we try to list out all the 'major' Power Rankings from across the net to see where FC Dallas has landed. Just like in previous weeks, FC Dallas sits atop most of the rankings.

The biggest thing about most of these is the fact that people are getting the point about the depth that this club has. They've taken note, it just took 11 weeks for them to do so.

Rank 1 (last week 1)

Comment: Got four points from two games in four days with essentially one half from David Ferreira. Also did their work without George John and Andrew Jacobson, and missed Jackson for a bit as well. Finding a way to get results in those circumstances means it's official: Dallas are really good.

If John and Ferreira aren't back for Seattle, Dallas could be in for a long day.

Comment: FC Dallas is 6-0-1 at home and unbeaten in nine matches (7-0-2) after tying Portland and beating D.C. United.

FCD has outscored opponents 12-4 at home this season; now comes a good road test Saturday at Seattle. (via Yahoo)

Rank 1 (last week 1)

Comment: FCD just keeps churning out results week after week. The midweek draw against Portland - even with the aid of an iffy penalty decision - stands out as a particularly important result because...
