    Look at New England and Indy. Where are their Division foes in comparison? Give me an easy NFC East to beat up on for a decade and I'll predict we have inflated numbers too. Taking nothing away from those good teams, but how many of you put the Chargers 3rd overall? Are they just under achievers?

    Perhaps data like this is a good argument for keeping the playoff format the way it is. It is extremely difficult to escape the 9-7 to 7-9 orbit. But if you can, you usually make the playoffs.

    Not that it matters but the info on the bottom is wrong. It says det has no double digit wins since 2002. Which made me think it was done before 2011. But then it says hou has 1. Which made me think it was done after the 2011 seasn. Either way it was was done before the 2011 season and the its wrong lol.


    There are around 6 teams below us that have more than 1 playoff when in that time span.

    That really shows how valuable both Peyton Manning and Tom Brady are. We are watching two of the best QBs to have ever played the game. The Colts got lucky and swapped out Peyton for Luck and will most likely have the key component to help keep the run going. Brady only has a year or two or three at most before it all comes crashing down unless the Patriots find another star QB.

    Well, if you call 50% of your sample 'outliers'. I would have expected it to be more clumped toward the middle.

    Edit: To expand, I would argue that it's decidedly *not* an 8-8 league. It's a three-tiered league: Those doing things largely right, those muddling along, and those doing things largely wrong. We're Muddlers.

    The record in the Romo era moves us all the way up 7th.
    Even then, it seems like this franchise should be at least top five over any extended period. So this is disappointing.

    The 18 games over 500 under Romo helped.
    Not much to show for it though.

    When other Teams step up as a Contender the Cowboys promptly step down as the pretender.

    We are Dallas and that's our M.O. with Jerral Wayne.

    I wouldn't call us a laughing stock. I would just say we're not an elite team.

    Let's look at the 5 teams above and below us:

    Baltimore : 1 Super Bowl
    New Orleans: 1 Super Bowl
    Seattle: 1 Super Bowl
    Atlanta: 1 NFC Championship appearance
    New York: 2 Super Bowls
    Chicago: 1 Super Bowl appearance
    Tennessee: No playoff success
    Carolina: 1 Super Bowl appearance
    NYJ: 2 AFC Championship appearances
    San Francisco: 1 Super Bowl apperance, 3 NFC title game apperances


    We aren't even close to any of our peers when it comes to playoff success. We are the Tennessee Titans.

    Great numbers, we are on brink of passing into the bottom quartile of this ranking. The most frustrating element of these results, is that we were basically gifted a UDFA franchise QB for almost this entire period and because of poor management and coaching, we have been essentially no more successful than the Browns and Lions of the world.

    1 winner, 31 losers is the case every year.

    Is there REALLY a big difference to you guys between 8-8 and 11-5 then losing in the playoffs?

    I mean, who really gives a damn that the Bears got to a Super Bowl somewhat recently. They lost and haven't sniffed one since. Why should I feel bad that it wasn't the Cowboys? I've seen the Cowboys win 3 rings so anything less than that feels more or less the same anyways.

    You can slurp the 49ers, for example, all you want. I'll keep laughing at them. 3 golden opportunities to win a ring got them 2 NFC Championship losses and a Super Bowl loss. Whoop-de-doo!!! They're the early-2000s Eagles as far as I'm concerned.

    Of course there is a difference.

    http://sturminator.blogspot.com/2014/02/nfl-franchise-rankings-version-130.html

    #2 - Dallas Cowboys (Last Year, #2) - 108 pts

    Dallas has the most playoff appearances, the most Final 4s, and are tied with Pittsburgh for the most Super Bowl appearances. However, since 1996, they have a performance level that actually trails the Jacksonville Jaguars and is certainly a team that is getting by on reputation and history. They are far removed from where they once stood, and yet, they still can claim to have as many or more points than any other franchise. They were a dominant, dominant franchise for 30 years. So much so, that according to these numbers, the Cowboys had 101 points through the first 30 Super Bowls and just 7 points in the last 18. That equates to 3.3 points per season for the first 30 years and 0.38 per year in the 18 years since. Yikes. These are indeed disappointing times round here.

    Total Points: 108
    Total Playoff Years: 66C, 67C, 68, 69, 70SL, 71S, 72C, 73C, 75SL, 76, 77S, 78SL, 79, 80C, 81C, 82C, 83, 85, 91, 92S, 93S, 94C, 95S, 96, 98, 99, 03, 06, 07, 09

    In case I didn't make myself clear, I couldn't give less of a damn about Bob Sturm's "franchise rankings".

    The Eagles can have 10,000,000 "points" by his standard and it means absolutely nothing since their Super Bowl trophy case is empty. The 49ers are getting slurped nonstop and they've done nothing since the year before OUR last Super Bowl.

    Getting close then losing means nothing to me. 1 winner, 31 losers.
