What a story it could have been: A former Revolution player, born and raised right here in New England, taking over the team he played nine seasons with, gunning for the possibility of winning the club's first league championship. That was the narrative Jay Heaps inherited when he was hired to replace Steve Nicol as head coach in November 2011.

Within a seven-minute span, Revolution midfielder Teal Bunbury went from potential hero to just another passerby during Saturday's 3-1 loss at Sporting Kansas City.

Barely four minutes after the opening whistle, Bunbury scored to give his team just what it needed: an early lead in a hostile environment.

That’s a Wrap

The good news about Saturday's match at Children's Mercy Park? The Revolution didn't lose by seven goals. The bad news? Another red card undermined their efforts.

Teal Bunbury scored early, but Krisztian Nemeth's dismissal set the stage for another letdown in Saturday's 3-1 loss to Sporting Kansas City.

Why Didn’t Nguyen Take the Armband at ATL?

It was easy to miss amid all the chaos during Wednesday's 7-0 loss at Atlanta: a brief, but compelling interlude about the state of the Revolution's leadership situation quietly unfolded during the early stages.

In the wake of Xavier Kouassi's 16th minute dismissal, the designated player, who was named captain for the match, relinquished the armband to Lee Nguyen, who had worn it for the better part of the past year.

Jay Heaps had never seen anything like it. And it's safe to say few soccer fans had, either.

In a wild first half that Atlanta dominated from the start, Video Assistant Referee (VAR) Ted Unkel was at the center of two calls that profoundly impacted the Revolution's fortunes in Wednesday's 7-0 defeat to the expansion side.

A nightmare of a first half for the Revolution set the stage for its worst loss in club history, a 7-0 annihilation at the hands of expansion Atlanta United FC on Wednesday at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Ga.

Within the first 45 minutes, the Revolution surrendered three Josef Martinez goals (2nd, 31st, and 39th minutes), conceded a pair of penalties, witnessed the dismissals of Xavier Kouassi and Antonio Delamea, and watched Anton Walkes score during stoppage time.

Time to Quiet the Noise

Ignore the noise. It's unofficial mantra of that other team the Revolution share Gillette Stadium with. But the MLS team has apparently adopted for its own use as it embarks on a critical two-game road swing.

While plenty has been made about the Revolution's winless ways on the road and justifiably so given their 0-10-3 mark outside of New England Revolution midfielder Diego Fagundez isn't paying attention to the naysayers ahead of Wednesday's contest at Atlanta.

In a televised rant about the recent setbacks suffered by the United States Men's National Team, Alexi Lalas called out a number of the squad's stars, including Attleboro, Mass. native Geoff Cameron.

During Sunday night's broadcast of the Seattle Sounders-LA Galaxy game on Fox Sports 1, Lalas ripped into individual players, including Cameron and former Revolution midfielder Clint Dempsey, and admonished the team as a group, calling them "soft, underperforming tattooed millionaires.

Less than four months after it was replaced, a new artificial surface will be installed at Gillette Stadium while the Revolution embark on back-to-back road matches.

Installation of the new surface began shortly after the Revolution's 1-0 win over Montreal on Saturday. The change was made after the previous surface did not meet the organization's standards, according to reports.

Call it a case of losing pretty.

Despite outshooting their foes by wide margin, the Breakers ended up in the loss column yet again following Sunday's 1-0 defeat to the Portland Thorns at Jordan Field in Allston, Mass.

Christine Sinclair netted the game's only goal in the 72nd minute to send the Breakers to their 12th loss of the season.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. Jay Heaps is often wont to classify a close win as "hard fought" during the opening remarks of his post-game press conferences. But Saturday's 1-0 victory over Montreal was different.

The Impact abandoned their preferred 4-2-3-1 formation, giving the Revolution a look it wasn't expecting.
