The Morning News' Rick Gosselin adds his two cents to the preseason ranking business, rating Dallas 20th in his initial pre-season listing. Gosselin puts Dallas in select company, just one spot behind the Denver Broncos, whom the Street and Smith folks have winning their division. The biggest surprise on Gosselin's list is Oakland, who leapfrogs from 28th on his last'04 list to the 14th spot now. Given Oakland's lackluster draft, Gosselin is giving incredible value to Randy Moss and Lamont Jordan.
There is one common refrain to the two lists critiqued so far; Gosselin, like the Street and Smith analysts, is disturbed by the Cowboys' age, especially on offense.
