New faces, new responsibilities as Columbus struggle to compete
Crew disappointed

The Columbus Crew got an early taste of what they need to improve on after a 3-1 season-opening loss at D.C. United on Saturday. But they aren’t ready to hit the panic button.

“No team wants to go the first seven, eight games without a win,” midfielder Eddie Gaven said. “You don’t want to start the season in a big hole like that but at the same time this league is about getting hot at the right time. If you can get hot at the end of the year you have a good chance to win a championship.”
