Instead, the bulk of the Giants...

Jason Garrett: Innovative or obsessive?

PHILADELPHIA -- Let's debate about whether it's a stroke of detail-acknowledging genius or some anal-retentive poppycock. Let's debate about whether the Dallas Cowboys' reasoning for wanting to get the ball to start the second half on the road represents an innovative path to an edge, or a reach for a 3-5 team that maybe oughta just block, tackle, throw, catch and...
