    2 top ten's would be a somewhat good consolation for this year.

    How do they decide order for teams with identical records? Because with us losing by 20 points in the last few games seems like it should be factored in. I would go as far saying that Buffalo is actually better than us.

    I think Buffalo still have to play Miami, San-Francisco, Cincy and Cleveland...

    I don't think their pick will be that high, but badly, our own pick will be pretty high.

    But a lot of their remainng games are on the road where they have been awful. If they continue their losing ways, odds are they replace Bledsoe with Losmann. 6-10 seems where they will fall. Dallas and Buffalo could have identical records.

    Opponents strength of schedule is usually the determining factor. If the Cowboys are tied at 6-10 with another team that they haven't played head-to-head, the team that has had "easier" opponents (worse winning percentage) will pick higher. The thinking is that the team that had the same record as another team yet played and easier schedule should draft higher because their record is even less impressive - based on opponents faced.

    Those numbers are a bit off as far as win percentages and it affects the draft order.

    http://cowboyszone.com/forums/showthread.php?t=13093

    1. San Francisco 49ers, 1-8, .506 Opp. Win %
    2. Miami Dolphins, 1-8, .580

    3. Carolina Panthers, 2-7, .543

    4. Washington Redskins, 3-6, .457
    5. Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 3-6, .494
    6. Tennessee Titans, 3-6, .506
    7. Oakland Raiders, 3-6, .519
    8. Kansas City Chiefs, 3-6, .543 (Subject to coin flip)
    9. Dallas Cowboys, 3-6, .543 (Subject to coin flip)
    10. Buffalo Bills, 3-6, .593 (Cowboys own Pick)
    11. Cleveland Browns, 3-6, .630

    12. New Orleans Saints, 4-5, .432
    13. Chicago Bears, 4-5, .457
    14. Cincinnati Bengals, 4-5, .481 (Subject to coin flip)
    15. Arizona Cardinals,4-5, .481 (Subject to coin flip)
    16. Houston Texans, 4-5, .519
    17. Detroit Lions, 4-5, .556

    18. Seattle Seahawks, 5-4, .407
    19. Green Bay Packers, 5-4, .432
    20. St. Louis Rams, 5-4, .469
    21. New York Giants, 5-4, .481 (Chargers own Pick)
    22. Minnesota Vikings, 5-4, .519

    23. New York Jets, 6-3, .407
    24. Denver Broncos, 6-3, .469
    25. Jacksonville Jaguars, 6-3, .506 (Subject to coin flip)
    26. Baltimore Ravens, 6-3, .506 (Subject to coin flip)
    27. San Diego Chargers, 6-3, .506 (Subject to coin flip)
    28. Indianapolis Colts, 6-3, .531

    29. Atlanta Falcons, 7-2, .420

    30. Pittsburgh Steelers, 8-1, .481
    31. Philadelphia eagles, 8-1, .494
    32. New England Patriots, 8-1, .506

    Numbers all crunched by the computer automatically.

    For example Dallas % by the quoted list list is .556.

    By the included list it is .543.

    Here are Dallas opponents so far with wins and losses.

    Minnesota 5-4
    Cleveland 3-6
    Washington 3-6
    NY Giants 5-4
    Pittsburgh 8-1
    Packers 5-4
    Lions 4-5
    Bengals 3-6
    Eagles 8-1

    That's 44 wins over 81 games played.

    44/81 =.543

    Even if you calculate in the rest of the schedule we haven't played so far it comes to .549 instead of .556.

    Will we get any compensatory (sp?) picks? Still not sure exatly how that works. Is it you just get a pick if a free agent lost has a very good year?
