    What was learned from the RB performance against DC; it's a dysfunctional squad,Cooper can't jump and his soccer IQ is minimal, Richards runs like the wind and is clueless, Ballouchy has no speed, no stamina and no soccer IQ, defense is disorganized and the MF lacks purpose; and coach Backe needs to be replaced; a horrid display of technical and emotional dynamics.
