1. Don't expect too many more gaffes from Scott Caldwell- A test of a professional player is his ability to shake off a mistake. Scott Caldwell passed that test with flying colors on Saturday night. He, his teammates, his coaches, his fans, and the entire league are well aware of his ability and potential. The own goal he scored tonight is not indicative of his skill as a player. It's an unfortunate mistake, but Caldwell has shown that he's more than capable of bouncing back when things don't go his way.

2. Fagundez finishes well, but he was offside- Diego Fagundez' goal was certainly key, but the replay shows that he was offside. By at least two yards. That call, or lack thereof, is proof that refereeing decisions even out. The Revolution were victimized by two controversial calls in last week's 3-2 loss to Chicago. On another day, the linesman would have raised his flag on Fagundez on Saturday night, too.

3. Revolution still in playoff race- With Columbus beating Chicago and the Revolution picking up this win, New England slides back into the fifth and final playoff place in the Eastern Conference. Next week's game against Houston at Gillette Stadium carries even more playoff implications. But the Revolution need to do a better job of putting away their chances. They were all over DC and should have scored more than two goals. Nevertheless, a playoff team always finds a way to win. The Revolution certainly did that tonight.
