Bottom line: Expectations at this point of the offseason are just stupid to have. Wait until after training camp to have expectations of the Cowboys.
Jeez, that's just ridiculous.
Parcells: "Hello men. We're shooting for mediocrity unless at Training Camp you really show me something. Then we'll adjust our thinking and raise our goals and expectations."
Once the season ends the goal is to get better. Once you start adding the better personnel expactations rise. Not just for the Head Coach and his staff. They rise everywhere.
To think that Dallas is not looking to be vastly improved with the personnel acquisitions of this off season is myopic at best. You can bet your bottom dollar that the goal upon the completion of last season was the playoffs this year. So far, everything they have done is pointed towards a return there.
The expectations started the day the season ended. You're trying to put your personal viewpoint on the situation and paint everyone into that box. Not going to happen. Sorry, you live in an "irrational and unacceptable" world.
