Buried in frustration and failure, the Dallas Cowboys ended their last 3 seasons with 8-8 records.  Teasing fans with playoff promises that turn into bad joke punchlines.

‘Fool’s Gold’, ‘bait and switch’, ‘banana in the tailpipe’…name your snake oil cliche and Jerry Jones/Jason Garrett own the 3-year patented process.

The problems created by an 8-8 playoff-snubbed season are endless.  Temporary victories only slightly trump a 6 win team, both ultimately suffer a painful death blow.

The 8-8 Cowboys absorb a more vicious Tyson-esque type uppercut.  15 games in the books, roughly even on the scorecards, then a bomb to the chin and it’s lights out.

How could 2 extra losses be a better outcome than 8-8?  5 words…help is on the way. Teams with 10 losses earn a guaranteed draft selection from the elite player pool.
