Sunday’s result against the treble-chasing Seattle Sounders confirmed what many of us had feared for some time … that the Colorado Rapids were not going to be a part of the 2014 postseason.

And, for all the disappointment surrounding Sunday’s 4-1 reversal, and – of course – it was the result which cut the Rapids adrift, it wasn’t that one performance which punctured hopes of a push in the playoffs. It wasn’t even the heavy losses at Real Salt Lake or LA Galaxy, though they were difficult to stomach.
