    What's funny is we are 13th in the ranking. Or just out of the playoff field in this fictional tournament.

    Only 9 teams have mustered a cumulative 9-7 record. But only 10 teams have not posted a cumulative 7-9. It's basically an 8-8 league with some outliers.

    I'm surprised by the Chargers. They really are the goat underachievers. As are the Eagles and Bears.

    B-b-b-but we're the laughingstock of the league and Jerry is the worst GM in the history of management!

    We're actually slightly above .500. That's a surprise. Another big surprise is San Francisco at less than .500. They must have had more lean years than I realized. If I were betting big money in Vegas, they would be my pick to win the Super Bowl next year (not who I want to win, but who I think will win).

    There's a tremendous amount of middle ground between "laughingstock" and "where we want to be."

    Being back two games means we went into the final game of this NFL mega-season only one game back from the Giants and lost the win and in. I hate that that trend persists even in a fictional season.

    Is that the scenario where the Cowboys don’t have to bother with the regular season and playoffs and just get a direct pass to the SB?

    Which is exactly why I said picking a team to go 8-8 is no evidence at all of football knowledge. It is a statistical probability that given the parity measures of the League a large portion of teams will end up within 1 game of 8-8 either way. In 2013 12 teams finished between 7-9 and 9-7. 11 teams finished above that. 9 below it. You can say 8-8 every year and the odds are you are going to be close more often than not. Predicting a record isn't knowledge, it's luck. No different than throwing the dice. Show me one person anywhere who in 2013 before a single game had been played had Atlanta at 4-12 or anywhere below 8-8. You can't. Same is true for Washington, Minnesota, and Houston by the way. The same people who "knew" the Cowboys were going to be 8-8 in 2013 also were predicting Washington for a long run atop the division and saying we were no longer the best team in Texas.

    Except when the team ends up finishing 8-8.

    You know what is really no knowledge? Picking the 8-8 team to win the division every year.

    Hey, I have a feeling they'll win the division next year. What say you?

    Ah, . . . . . . . . oh so close. We are on the cusp. Another ingredient or two in the secret sauce and we are right there!

    I say you're bitter about something that isn't worth the time.
