    Yeah, those 11 extra playoff wins between 1992 and 1996 didn't fit the agenda.

    Bottom tier front office equals bottom tier results. No big surprise.

    Jags have more success, how sad is that?

    Yeah it's pretty much been terrible for the Cowboys since 1997. Everyone whose a fan already knows that. I'm not sure how this chart makes it more obvious or sobering.

    There are five teams with zero playoff wins. Only four can be in the bottom 1/8th. 32/8=4.

    Which one of those five teams with zero wins do you exclude from the four teams that mathematically can be included in the bottom 1/8th?

    First initial statement was dallas wasn't in bottom 1/8th. Since they are 6th from bottom 6>4 or 5.

    Longer answer, rank ordering in a distribution ties will count as 1 place. All 5 teams with 0 wins are tied for 28th place (or 32nd). Percentile-wise, 100%*(1/8) = 12.5%. All five teams with 0 wins are at the 87.5% mark (100%-12.5%). Dallas is at 84.4%.

    Not in the bottom 1/8th, positive spin to the thread. Even more positive spin...Dallas is within 2 std deviations of the normal playoff wins over the period wins ~95%. Barely missing the 1std dev of 68% by 0.22 wins. However, the skew does break that Gaussian

    Let's see a chart on "Bottles of scotch finished since 1997 per GM".

    The first graphic is like the middle finger.
    The second graphic is like, "hook 'em horns"

    And people will still argue that we are relevant.

    We are not, .. if you are talking about success on the field.

    What is sobering is that Jerry Jones seems fairly content with this.

    I'm sure he would rather not be at the bottom, but he is not willing to do what it takes for us to improve.

    We have more playoff wins than the Eagles in the last 5 years.

    Arbitrary dates!

    So now we are measuring ourselves against the Iggles?

    Sad.

    Not really. Just pointing out how things can be looked at. The Eagles were in that upper echelon of teams that won a lot of playoff games over the last 17 years... but 5 of those years, the most recent years are very very empty.
