FOXBOROUGH — A neat set of four takeaways from Saturday night’s 2-0 Revolution loss to LAFC as you leave church, or settle in with coffee and cruellers.

Don’t give LAFC the title just yet

Remember how in 2006 — gosh, has it really been 13 years?! — Dennis Green, then the head coach of the Arizona Cardinals, suggested to us all that if you’re going to give the Chicago Bears that year’s Lombardi, “then crown their ass”?

Yeah, about that — Bruce Arena doesn’t get the potential MLS Cup love being showered on Los Angeles Football Club right now. Sure, they lead the Western Conference. Sure, they lead the Supporter’s Shield rankings. Sure, Carlos Vela’s nine goals away from tying Josef Martinez for last year’s scoring record.

But they haven’t won anything yet.
