Preseason wrap-up: Fire are a mystery heading into 2011

The Chicago Fire's preseason slate has wrapped up, and yet this team still is a mystery on several levels.

Four straight preseason games with a red card -- the latter three resulting in 10 men remaining on the pitch -- did not help Chicago's evaluation process. Ultimately, we are left wondering where this club stands from a cohesive and tactical perspective. And the Fire's 2011 MLS opener is only days away as they travel to Texas to take on FC Dallas on Saturday, March 19, at Pizza Hut Park.

The Fire's first team posted a 1-2-3 preseason record, earning a 1-0 victory over Toronto FC on March 5 for its lone win.
