O RLY HEAPS?

Jay, Jay, Jay… what ever are we going to do with you?

In an interview this week with Kyle McCarthy on MLSsoccer.com Heaps was asked about how his partnership was with Mike Burns in his first year… here is what he had to say…

“From my perspective, being a first-year head coach, having a general manager like Mike Burns – who knows every facet of this league, who has played in this league, who has an understanding of players that are going to do well in this league – [helps]. When you make that many signings and we get that many players through that I have to have eyes on, I have to trust his idea of value, however you want to put that. There’s a lot that goes on here. It’s important for a guy like me. If you don’t have that kind of experience in his seat, we’re not where we are.”

Jay, I see you aced Revs PR Spin 101.

“We are not where we are.”

Jay did you look to see where we are? 4th from the bottom Jay… 4th from the bottom… not the top.  Do you know where we were last year? Tied for last… you know what part of the equation hasn’t changed since last year… Burns.

“who has an understanding of players that are going to do well in this league”

Sorry Jay, but Burns is clueless… the more you or anyone else tries to build him up the more foolish it makes all of you look. Many of the players listed above where nothing to great to begin with… but a few of them were and are with their current teams. Remember Burns had a role in determining the value of these players when they were on their way in or out…

Mike Burns is just throwing it against the wall and hoping something sticks…

Update: John Lozano added
