    Nope the Cowboys hype has been dead for a long time for me. Just media click bait

    Every year cowboys get hyped to playoff / superbowl contender
    Every year the QB gets hyped or the defense or the OL or the LBs or the coaching

    Every year we fail miserably

    Just show us

    I do not enjoy hearing from the Joneses at all when it comes to this team. All smoke and no substance. At this point, I do my best to just tune it out and trust my own thoughts on what I see and what I expect.

    Media hype doesn't work out well with this organization.

    The national media I should say. Every time the talking heads pump us up we seem to find a way to have a disastrous season.

    They don't seem capable of building on success.

    They have a good year, then the hype train is crazy for the following year.....then they stink it up, so no one expects much the following year....and they aren't so bad.

    They can have a mulligan for last year......but MM was brought here to take this group to a level that Garrett could not and I fully expect that to happen....like NOW. We aren't in baby step building mode.

    I refuse to be ok with 9-8 and call it progress just because they were so pathetic last year.

    That would be right in line with Garrett taking over a team that won a playoff game the previous season and telling us about a "process" that we have to endure before we can get anywhere.

    Oh, uh....hype? Yep. I'm a little hyped up!

    The post was about hype in general, didn't reference any hype in particular...

    You do not have to buy the hype and if you decide to do so, don't accuse someone of selling it to you, you bought it.

    And what's wrong with that? Don't you get up for a new movie, album from one of your favorite bands, new TV show, new restaurant in your food wheelhouse or anything else you want to look forward to experiencing?

    You are not gullible, an easy sell or any negatives because you want to get excited. Give yourself a break.

    Damn, let's not beat ourselves up. Wasn't the anticipation of Christmas morning greater than the actual event. when you were young? People focus too much on the disappointment if it's not what they anticipated. What about all of that time spent in anticipation, was that just wasted?

    I think there are a hell of a lot more posters here that are jazzed and feeling good than they want to let on about among the "Sam the Eagle's" of the forum.

    Been a tough year, you need some joy, you deserve to feel positive about something. If you were too optimistic, that's OK. Be as happy as you can be now, do not put that off to a future time that may not come.

    Don't over think it, you are a FAN and you are allowed to be a little wacky because it's all emotion. This is supposed to be fun.

    25 years of hype tends to diminish it greatly and I don’t buy into any of it. Do something on the field to merit it other wise it is just white noise

    -----even after this many years I have not lost hope

    Wish I could say the same....until Booger and Chuckles are both out of the picture, there is VERY LITTLE hope!!!

    Agreed. One sign of a complete lack of accountability at the top of this organization is the shameless sales job they throw out every year. They can’t just let their actions talk.

    Don't care about hype in the least. Unfortunately you typically have to wade through some hype to get the information you seek. So I tolerate it in the name of getting knowledge about my favorite team.

    I have a love/hate thing with the hype. IMHO, there’s different levels of hype, both positive and negative. While I lean toward the positive, extremes on either side are the most annoying and detrimental to genuine fandom, and it’s all connected to money.

    Take the “America’s Team” label. While I’m kinda proud because of its orgins, the team’s history and tradition, the whole largest fanbase and most valuable franchise thing, frankly, I only pull out the label when some snarky ABD goes on the attack. Otherwise, stay humble, enjoy the games and remain positive and hopeful. Have fun!

    Exaggerated may not be the right word. But pretty much everything right now is hype. All the, "player X has been looking really good," stuff is completely meaningless until they put on pads and actually play some football. Sure, fans want to hear good things, but it should all be taken with a grain of salt.

    It's the typical approach of the media every year because it's proven to get them noticed. Beginning of the year, the Cowboys are hyped up. The homers get all excited and click articles. The haters get all excited and click articles. Then during halfway through the season and the Cowboys show they were nothing more than paper champions, the media starts their hate and the homers get all excited and click articles. The haters get all excited and click articles. There is nothing more predictable than those that love and hate the Cowboys.
