The team's play thus far can best be characterized as self-destructive. With the exception of the Seattle and LA games, they've generally gone out and controlled possession for at least the first half of every game. Then, they'll do something to shoot themselves in the foot...red card right before half, ill-advised backpass...take your pick.
Good news is that they're able to string together passes and spread the field wide better than a lot of MLS teams. Bad news is that the quality of the finishing (Le Toux being the lone exception) has been pretty poor.
