Everyone except Attinella had a sub-par showing against the Revolution.

Bob DeChiara-USA TODAY Sports

Jeff Attinella - 7 Attinella was the one bright spot on the field for Real Salt Lake. Four goals got past him, but none of them were truly his fault. He made at least five incredible saves throughout the game and had to deal with 13 shots on goal. Considering the abysmal night his teammates put in, he did well.

Demar Phillips - 4.5 Phillips is still finding his way with Real Salt Lake. He did not provide any service like he normally does and his defense was just as bad as anyone else's. If anything, he didn't show up on any highlight reels where Vancouver was scoring.

Aaron Maund - 4 Maund had the best chance to score on the night for Real Salt Lake on a wide open header and he sent it high. Had that gone in, the tone may very well have been different for Real Salt Lake. His main task, defense, was lacking for the most part. 13 shots on goal is unacceptable.

Elias Vasquez - 5 Vasquez did not have the same kind of game he had over the past couple of games in which he started. Part of the problem was the entire team was out of sync and Vasquez was lost in the shuffle.

Tony Beltran - 3 This was as bad of a game as I have ever seen from Beltran who is typically very consistent in his defending. He was directly involved in at least two of the four goals allowed and was lucky that a few more did not get past him. His one on one defending just wasn't there like it usually is.

Kyle Beckerman - 4 This was the first time I have ever seen Beckerman just give up for the last 10 or so minutes of the game. A perceived foul was committed and rather than play on, Beckerman stopped and threw his arms up in protest to the ref. He did not break up plays like he is capable of, even in the diamond formation against the Revolution. Not a great night from the captain.

Luke Mulholland - 4.5 Mulholland did not provide the possession game he typically does and his defense wasn't quite there either.

Luis Gil - 4 Gil was given the reigns at the top of the diamond in his natural position and did not show well. It's a strange thing given how well he does with the national team. I thought his movement off the ball was good in the first half but as with the rest of the team, once the wheels came off it was a disastrous second half.

Olmes Garcia - 4 Garcia was getting up and down the field but was unable to make much of anything happen on either end. Of course, it is hard to make much happen on offense when your team spends most of the time defending.

John Stertzer- 3.5 As with Beltran, Stertzer got burned on more than one occasion. Stertzer shows very well at times, but in his first start of 2015 he was just not good enough. He looked frustrated after about 15 or 20 minutes of play and it was a rough night from there.

Alvaro Saborio - 4 Saborio was putting in work on defense and never really had any chances on offense. RSL desperately needs Saborio to find his rhythm to help get them out of this funk.

Substitutes

Wellington Paeckart - 5 Paeckart looked determined as a substitute, but was unable to make too much happen when the team had completely lost its way by the time he came on. He was aggressive, which is more than we can say for many others on the night.

Devon Sandoval - 5 Sandoval tried to inject some positivism and aggression as well, but one man cannot change a game, not on a night like that.

Abdoulie Mansally - N/A
