Two goals scored in six matches. Two red cards by newly acquired D Carlos Johnson. Paltry home crowds. In MLS, playoff pushes can start as late as August, but the 2009 edition of the Red Bulls are stinking up the joint, plain and simple. Thankfully the Eastern Conference remains tightly bunched one month into the season. With rival DC coming to the Swamp on Sunday, New York has an opportunity to stop the dreary start to the season. Don't bet on it.
