Vako leads resurgent San Jose Earthquakes up standings | Audi Player Index

It was a rough start to the 2019 season for Valeri "Vako" Qazaishvilli and the San Jose Earthquakes, with the Quakes beginning with four straight losses and a -12 goal differential in that span. 

However that stint is a far cry from the current form of Matias Almeyda's men, as they've since surged up the Western Conference standings, often leaving their opponents out-shot by a massive margin in the process.

Matt Doyle and Andrew Wiebe take a peak under the hood, and analyze what has Vako and the Quakes firing on all cylinders.
