Rankings Recap: FC Dallas still near bottom after bye week

New, comment

Not many are high on the Hoops to start the season.

MLS: Concacaf Champions League-Tauro FC at FC Dallas Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

Two weeks into the new season and FC Dallas is still near the bottom of the latest Power Rankings across the web. Part of it was due to the way things went in Week 1 and the other part was being off in Week 2.

Either way, everyone seems to agree that their rating may henge on how they do Sunday against Seattle. (This week: 18, Last Week: 18)

Comment: Dallas had the week off, and are probably just now rounding into form with CCL out of the way and the players fit. Still, they may want to see their upcoming opponent Seattle advance in CCL this week to keep the distraction factor high in MLS play.

Comment: Oscar Pareja’s team was off this week.

Comment: FCD is at home Saturday against fatigued Sounders. Can it take advantage? And what if it can’t?
