    I think Nick Rimando has been a real solid goalkeeper for many years. That said, it seems to me since the long layoff and Nick's return from other duties have corresponded in some rusty play. Much of that is tough luck and blown opportunities but I really feel the overall defense and goal tending are the achilles heel right now.

    I don't San Jose's second goal was a set-piece goal. San Jose had only two attacking players (Gordon and Wondo) in attacking position within approximately 10 yards of the goal. I don't think that's enough to constitute a set piece.

    Re: Caleb.

    The positioning of attacking players doesn't related to whether something is a restart or a setpiece. The second goal was off a throw-in, something RSL has really struggled with, and I think a throw-in counts as a set piece.
