Jean-Jacques Taylor writes about Dallas Cowboys coach Jason Garrett making some changes to the way the team does things.

While Garrett might have lost some power, he's doing other things.

From Taylor:
You don't win in the NFL by signing over-the-hill faux stars, paying solid players like they're superstars or benching young athletes for dudes who are a notch or two above serviceable.

Jerry Jones has always lived by this credo, so it's unlikely his philosophy has changed.

And since Stephen Jones hasn't talked Jerry out of too many bad ideas lately, let's not give him any credit for this subtle shift in protocol.

Give the credit to Jason Garrett, because it falls in line with the way he wants to build a football team.
Check out Taylor's column and tell us what you think about Garrett.
