MLS sample size is now up to 180 minutes per team! Except for the bye teams, they are still in 90 minutes. Not for some of the teams in the CONCACAF Champions League as they field weaker teams this weekend to prepare for continental play in midweek.
And then there are still teams that have to comply with documents or new agreements. Can you judge a team with a new manager as if they are still really struggling? But at least we have these two complete matches to make definitive statements about who is good and who is bad. Rank them!

On the one hand, Philly lost to Miami. On the other hand, they were still a good team and *last season’s moves*.

A 2-0 win over RSL didn’t do the Sounders justice. Haters prefer last season’s missed playoffs. Seattle is back.

LAFC shut down Portland after blowing a 3-0 lead, and it’s hard to blame them. They’re still winning and the gap between the top three and the rest of the league looks huge right now.

The Lions were hoping to turn the match against Cincy into a rock fight for points, looking ahead to their CONCACAF Champions League match against Liga MX side Tigres. They got their point, and now they’ve reached Monterrey.

There was so much Gary could do for his representatives in Orlando. Win and everyone says “well, the Lions played their B team”, but lose, maybe they’re not contenders. The draw would split the difference, but you could see the growth in Cincy’s game and how they were able to dictate how this match was played in Florida. They need to be sharp, but what they showed bodes well for the rest of the season.

Another MLS season, another season for Maxi Urruti as a utility forward. It’s like clockwork and it gave Austin a well-deserved win over Montreal.
Previous rating: 8
Do you dream of a great middle third that transitions to the final third, or do you wonder when their ability to run the game will translate into consistent wins? After the draw against Toronto, it’s easier to be last, but we’ll be first because sometimes you have to get sick.

Going to the Red Bull Arena and walking away with points is always a job well done, even if it leaves fans wondering what sport they’ve been watching.

We’ll see how long it takes for the crew to really embrace Wilfried Nancy’s system, but they already have some level of confidence in him, and as they showed in their win over DC, Lucas Zelarayan and Cucho Hernandez can carry the team. interval.

Two goals for Jesus Ferreira against the Galaxy, three points against Dallas and we’re thinking “he’s not just a one-season wonder!” we can find that territory soon, although no one is calling the forward a one-season wonder.

The results suggest that Inter are contenders, especially after beating Philly this weekend. The eye test isn’t as reliable, but these dots live forever.

RBNY had nine turnovers for every shot attempt in a 0-0 tie with Nashville.

The ravers are back! Directed by Bobby Wood! Welcome back to the real Game Week 2 headlines after the Revs beat Houston.

TFC hired Bob Bradley and spent an ungodly amount of money because they wanted to be special, but the only thing special about the team right now is their injury list. Getting points from Atlanta isn’t all bad.
Previous rating: 15
The Timbers were absolutely crushed for 60 minutes before scoring a pair late on to make things look respectable in a 3-2 loss to LAFC, but the first hour showed better where this team is at than the last half hour.

It’s probably not a good thing that Quakes teams are still being compared to Goonies teams approx 2012 because it’s been a long time since they’ve been good. This version of San Jose isn’t Goonies-level good, but it was encouraging to see them come back to beat Vancouver without looking like the Goonies. They got into the match slowly and methodically, not with late-game frenzy, and then took a well-deserved three points. Earthquakes are sure to rattle.

SKC looked pretty good in the game and lost, so it makes sense that they look shaky in Colorado this week and walk away with some sort of point.
Previous rating: 18
RSL have to cross their fingers people saw the score line in the 2-0 loss to Seattle and didn’t watch the game because phew.
Previous rating: 20
Having a bye early in the season while you wait for your best player to emerge will be beneficial.
Previous rating: 13
The Galaxy were completely burned out in transition and their wing was a black hole, but at least Dejan Joveljic looked good in the loss to Dallas. Looks like 2022.
Previous rating: 19
The Broncs have a lot of moving parts, but as they showed in their tie with Chicago, there’s a lot that can be solved by keeping Keaton Parks in the midfield.
Previous rating: 22
Charlotte headed the ball into their own net first, but at least they learned their lesson. Instead of repeating the same mistake for their next adventure in Honoring St.Louis Goals, they back-passed City for an easy finish. It’s growth, sort of.

It’s been two weeks and after two defeats it’s hard to decide which is more worrying: the talent that went out the door over the winter or how unworthy of the talent Hernan Losada has.
Previous rating: 23
DCU looks like a competent, professional team. That’s quite a compliment, but it’s also a big step forward after the club’s management in recent years. Losing 2-0 in Columbus won’t do them any credit, but you can tell who they are.

Dynamo looked good again. And again, they lost, this time to the Revers.
Previous rating: 28
Another memorable win for St. Louis City, giving them an amazing opening game and their first home win to enjoy forever. But while the wins are great, it still looks like fool’s gold. What happens when opposing teams stop scoring on the silver plate?

One day Darren Yapi will turn those chances into goals and the Rapids will have a special player, but for now he is only 18 years old, trying to improve his game and they have only managed a draw. House with SKC.
Previous rating: 26
Two games, two losses, but at least their signing of winter goalkeeper Yohei Takaoka looks like a home run. Now if they couldn’t ask for more.

Score! But just one at home against an NYCFC team in transition? Eh. And are the injuries starting to pile up? Oh no.
