Blah, Blah, Blah... we could've won the super bowl and we'd still be ranked 15th... it's fine with me, we do much better when the expectations aren't so high...

I'm happy expectations are so low. It has served us well in the past(i.e. '03, '08).

THis is great. We love the disrespect card. We have a bunch of guys that now have something to prove and are being dissed. So I will be the first to say that it looks like another playoff run this year. We don't handle prosperity very well but we are best when it is us against the world.

:party:

we're under-ranked because we sucked so bad in the playoffs... and i gauruntee you every single man on that roster knows it, hates it, harbors a bitter grudge against it, and will come out playing with everything to prove.

bring the mediocre rankings all day long.

Only team immune to being destroyed in the first round is the Cowboys who always rank top 15 no matter how many times they fail.

Exactly....the Cowboys did not even make the playoffs....got absolutely destroyed in their finale (which would have gotten them in the playoffs).....lose the only decent WR they have....and still rank in the Top 10.

This within itself is proof that all of the "expert" talking heads are sheep...nothing but sheep.

You have to remember that most of these experts are ex-players....and the average NFL player scores at about middle school level on the Wonderlic Test......they are not exactly an intelligent bunch.

i also gauruntee you they are forced, to some extent, to give certain teams more hype whether or not they deserve it. Rank the cowboys outside the top ten - even if they deserve it (which they do) - and you've got a very large fanbase that's upset because some idiots put so much stock in such things as rankings.

the people that make these rankings are less idiot, more ratings instrument.
