Player Ratings: RSL 0-5 Colorado

Things went from bad to worse to worst.

MLS: Colorado Rapids at Real Salt Lake Jeffrey Swinger-USA TODAY Sports

Andrew Putna - 4 Five goals against is nothing to be happy about. Putna had a few tough saves, sure. But something is seriously amiss when that many goals get past you.

Aaron Herrera - 4.5 Herrera did not seem to be directly responsible for any goals, but his level of play and organization was lacking.

Justen Glad - 3 Glad had an uncharacteristically showing. He made way too many mistakes and got beat in battles.

Everton Luiz - 5 Everton was not his usual self, but he at least showed spurts of desire and energy.

Damir Kreilach - 4 Clearly the game plan broke down with two early goals, but Damir was out of position for most of the game which is part of why the midfield wasn’t working.

Justin Meram - 5 Meram was not bad in this game, he just didn’t bring the creativity that RSL desperately needed. Once he was subbed off at the half, it was too late.

Albert Rusnak - 4 RSL needs more out of their captain in a game like this. RSL got embarrassed and Rusnak did not rise to the occasion to help lead his team and show some pride.

Maikel Chang - 5 Change had a decent pass or two and was responsible for RSL’s lone shot on goal.

Corey Baird - 3.5 Baird’s focus was simply not there. He made some decent runs, but stopped defending at critical times.

Substitutes

Douglas Martinez Jr. - 3 Even though the game was already essentially lost, Martinez needs to play smarter and not let his emotion get the best of him. He earned an obvious red card and then Colorado piled on.

Pablo Ruiz - 5 Ruiz had enough time to make an impact, but was unable to steer the ship in the right direction.

Sam Johnson - 4.5 In fairness to Sam, he came on at an unfortunate time when things were already out of hand. He was unable to get involved and spark any sort of attack, but that’s not all on him.

Erik Holt - 4 Holt committed a cardinal sin when he reached his foot around his back to try to stop an attacker, failed, and allowed Colorado to score.

Jeizon Ramirez - N/A
