    We have been posting 8-8 and 9-7 seasons forever. And maybe this season 10-7. Enough wins to keep the nouveau riche coming to the stadium but enough to keep us picking at 15 in the draft forever.
    Vicious cycle with no brakes.

    Yes, that 17 is about right.

    I think you're being overly optimistic. Hey, look, I don't mind. I always go back to that 2014 season where I thought we'd be lucky to win 6 games. So anything can happen. But my feel for this upcoming season isn't good.

    In my crazy warped brain I always think Ranched is Ranching's significant other while scrolling through threads.

    Unfortunately, convivial lad, that season record cannot count toward our chances in the 2022-23 playoffs. And 12 wins didn't mexactly get us ahead in the draft. Sod.
    But, me miscreant, the O line, the WRs new order, Dak, a rapidly declining Zeke and a pouty Schultz won't guarantee 12-5 next season.
    We shall whistle "O Our Merry Hearts Converge" all we want, but next season will be challenging, more than usual.

    Nooooo. Nice thoughtful guys. They are friends, chasing the pigeons through Marketdelia Square, playing "Sonny Boy" on Youtube and singing along, antiquing in Cotulla.

    Coaching is key, we have the pieces.
    Assembly required!
    Could be top 5
    Could be 20th

    Who are you calling out here? Nobody I can think of uses PFF to prove the superiority of our roster. We have a few highly ranked players but so does every team.

    I think there are multiple factors to consider not only about last year but next year:

    a 16th ranked roster in the 2021 NFC East likely wins double digit games.

    Dallas ended up losing at home to the last team that qualified for the playoffs.

    Dallas lost multiple starters on offense and defense. and while their replacements could theoretically cover most of the holes, until they prove it you can’t just credit them with doing so (particularly the more unproven guys like Steele, Williams, and Smith).

    A number of NFL teams that may have been ranked behind Dallas got dramatically better:

    Denver
    Chargers
    Raiders
    Minnesota
    Dolphins
    Cardinals
    Eagles
    Saints

    If LAC had a third year Herbert and Khalil Mack, do they still narrowly lose to you?

    If Mac Jones is not a rookie but a second year QB, does he make the same mistakes in that razor close game?

    If Baker Mayfield starts for the Panthers and not Sam Darnold, do they still lose to you by 1 possession?

    If the Minnesota Vikings have Pro Bowl edge Zadarius Smith, tackle machine Jordan Hicks, and Lewis Cine, do they still only lose by 4 points?

    If the Commanders swap Heinecke and Kyle Allen who split time for Carson Wentz in a 1 possession loss, and then added Chase Young who was injured for the game… could it have turned out differently?

    A lot can change from year to year.

    Flamma---i do hear you....i just choose not to be a realist until we are mathmatically out of it....just cannot forget the 1980 USA hockey team..."Do you believe in miracles".....off-season i swing other direction

    and am looking to blame anyone or everyone why we fell short year before....but once camp hits.....a switch clicks.....we will beat tampa Bay first game and dont need a Plat for that.....TB will have uncharacteristic

    large amounts of turnovers.....then we ride that "dream wave" for several games.....its time to break that bad streak that same NFC east team does not win back to back seasons since 2004.....yes i am assuming

    bounce of ball bounces our way too much.....we play out of our minds..... we are even bigger turnover machine than last year....Dak has best season of his life.....2 -1000 yd receivers....and running game is top

    3-5 in league......only way been able to be cowboy fan for 50 years i live in a dream world.....plus i get all my frustrations out during off season......total Hater in off season then switch total Lover during season

    yes indeed from that view....things can look scary....i am hoping we have a year where most everyone stays healthy and all those teams have injuries ( not life threatening of course ) and we play better

    than our potential and get all the breaks of bouncing of ball and refs all of a sudden love cowboys....realize not realistic....how else can you be a real fan year after year?.....you must go into denial

    because a person can only have heart ripped out of their chest so many times before a person must hope we are the 1980 winter olympic USA hockey team....and must rely on miracles...either that or

    look to chemicals or booze to get by and i quit that except for occasional valium on game day....when you have a Stephen Jones who is nothing more than Cap-boy running things and refuses to get

    free agents when you got the money......you must depend on miracles

    out of nowhere 2022-23 Cowboys turned into Juggernaut ..... no one could point to any one specific reason...went against all prognosticators ......cowboys kept putting "the hurt" on just about every team

    they played then playoffs occured and cowboys "Mowed everyone down".....no dynasty....just happened as the history books will say...that one year.....Do you believe in miracles?

    Doesn't surprise me, considering that unfortunately,we have only one proven great player,a couple up and comers,1 former great player who the clock is ticking on and the rest are pretty much average,hell,so being 16 sounds about right.

    #1 offense in the league last year and #1 in defensive turnover = #16 roster in league.

    Another reason they are an absolute joke.
