Have a strong feeling these playoffs can be an all timer. Great matchups potentially.

Eastern Conference

1. DC
2. NE
3. Columbus
4. New York
5. SKC

DC and New England lock up the top two seeds.

DC will play the winner of the NY vs SKC game on Thursday

New England will play Columbus

Awesome matchups. Don't count out SKC. Columbus is my dark horse. Berhalter has them playing his way and it's working .

Western Conference

1. Seattle
2. LA
3. RSL
4. FC Dallas
5. Vancouver

Congrats to Seattle on a great season with the Supporters Shield. They locked up the top spot with LA as the second seed.

Seattle will face the winner of FC Dallas and Vancouver. Vancouver sneaks in to face a very underrated FC Dallas squad.

LA vs RSL is matchup that will never disappoint.

Should be great. Any darkhorses? Predictions? Players to watch? Does LD lead LA to the promised land once again for the final time?Can DC really make this worst to first season really count?

Columbus-Seattle in the final with Seattle winning.

The only other East team I've seen this year I like would be DC. So organized and their non Eddie Johnson (who is himself is due a good game or two) attackers really can cause problems. But I really like Columbus, as I am a noted Michael parkhurst fan, as well as Wil Trapp. And they have more than that, it's their style of play, it all looks so easy right now for these guys. They will beat New England in round 1.

You guys know the west better than me, but I just think with Alonso Yedlin Evans martins and Dempsey that Seattle has too many heavyweights for the rest of the conference. Dallas was interesting, and unless midseason Zardes shows up, I can't see LA going thru.

I cant see Sporting beating NY in Red Bulls Arena. They fell apart last night and Red Bulls didnt even have Henry!
As for Vancouver good on them for topping Timbers but FC Dallas just has more quality and it will be in Toyota Stadium

East Semi
DC vs NY
Revs vs Crew

West Semi
Seattle vs Dallas
LA vs RSL

East Final
DC vs Revs

West Final
Seattle vs LA

Final MLS Cup
DC vs LA

It's either going to be LA or Seattle in the final. Just too much quality. I just think LA and Bruce know what to do to get to MLS Cup more experience than Seattle. Of course also Keane will be there of every playoff match
DC has been quality and has great depth can make a game ugly and still win or out play you. Both Conference final might as well be a flip of a coin thats how tight that will be

It won't be easy for NYRB to beat SKC on Thursday. SKC is slumping, yes, but they'll still be dangerous.

I'm surprised to see so many NY picks.... Their defense is atrocious, they are a bad bet.

What's going on with Luis Gil is he going to make a name for himself this week or what?? He's gotta show up soon if he's going to be the player we all would like to see.

If you match up NY and Sporting i dont think its a bad bid I mean speaking of bad defense BWP was tearing up the Sporting defense
KC are done imo most they can do is beating NY and even that is tough in NYRB Arena

From that NY wont beat DC i mean they never have beaten DC in playoff. DC more complete and compact team

These will be the best most watched MLS playoffs yet, I think that's a certainty. Let's hope the play on the field matches the fans in the stands.

Oh man, so excited for the playoffs to start. Can't WAIT to watch the first match tomorrow night. Oh, what's that? It's not on any of the major networks? A PLAYOFF GAME IS NOT ON ONE OF THE MAJOR NETWORKS???

Well done, MLS. You continue to shine as a beacon of how to run a league and reach a broader audience. Like not broadcasting playoff games.

Yeah real head scratcher on the Dallas Vancouver game. I was searching for it on my xfinity guide like a madman.

It's just unacceptable is what it is. If you want to be taken seriously as a league, every playoff match must be on a major network. It's a joke.
