Did Jason Garrett just win an argument with Jerry Jones? One could make the assumption that the hire of Scott Linehan as the Dallas Cowboys’ new play-caller might represent such a victory.

Reports broke last week that the Cowboys were interested in the former Lions offensive coordinator as most of the NFL world was at the Senior Bowl.
