Cake or Death? We give Chris Korb the once-over

New, 28 comments

With the 2013 season finally, mercifully behind us, it's time to run through the D.C. United roster and determine who should stay and eat cake and who should leave the team and find inevitable death. We begin week three with third-year fullback Chris Korb.

We seem to be a pretty cake-loving group two weeks into this exercise. Some of it is surely a function of the names that have come up, but there have definitely been one or two names that I expected a more cut-throat vote. Not that it's necessarily a bad thing - the point of this is to see where we stand, not to be a bunch of heartless bastards. All that said, today's subject should provide for some contrasting views among our readers: fullback Chris Korb.

He was immensely impressive as a second-year player in 2012, owning D.C. United's left back position in a way nobody managed to in 2013, when he moved over to what should be his natural right side. Over on the right, though, Korb wasn't as effective as he was in 2012 - though the same could be said about every single player on the roster, truth be told. His crossing, positioning and more all took a step back this year - though, again, so did everybody's.

Fullback is undeniably a position of need for United, and going into 2014, Korb looks to be atop the depth chart at the position. Our question today is whether he should be on the depth chart at all come the spring. If you'd like to see #22 back in Black-and-Red next year, vote to give him Cake. If you'd rather cut him loose, then vote for Death. If you can't make up your mind, tough - there's no third option; you've got to pick from the two.

And, of course, after you've voted, be sure to have it out in the comments.
