If you've been following the U.S. Men's National Team for the last few years, Tuesday's failure to qualify for the 2018 World Cup isn't a total surprise.

The steps that were taken since the round of 16 loss to Belgium in Brazil set the USMNT up for failure in the long term.

There's a myriad of issues you could point at from keeping Jurgen Klinsmann around after Brazil for another World Cup cycle to not giving enough chances to the new generation of stars that goes far beyond Christian Pulisic.
