Backpass: Optimistic about the Rapids’ defense in 2019? Don’t be.

If you haven’t followed Major League Soccer until now, or only recently moved to Denver (I see a lot of you are new in town — there are 36,379 folks new to the metro area in just the last year alone) the Rapids’ 2018 season was a total and complete train wreck. The team won eight, lost 19, and tied seven matches. On the road, Colorado won just 2 matches: a 1-0 squeaker against a Vancouver squad that fired their coach and dissolved nearly their entire roster at season’s end, and a 2-0 win against a 10th-place Minnesota team that was almost as bad as Colorado was. Oh yeah, and that Vancouver goal? That was an own-goal — they scored on themselves.
