Cowboys @ Giants: A New Twist To An Old Rivalry

Admit it, you can't wait to see what happens when the Dallas Cowboys take the field this Sunday against the New York Giants. No predictions of a miracle win here, but just the anticipation of hopefully seeing something new, something different with this team. The last month or so for Cowboys fans has been like a train-wreck, happening over and over.  We may go to New York and get train-wrecked by the G-men, they're playing some serious championship-type football right now, but I'm sure interested in finding out.

Jason Garrett will lead this team into action for the first time. I have no idea what, if anything, will be different, but that's half the fun of this game. We have no idea what to expect. Maybe today we might hear something about personnel changes, maybe not.

Over on the Giants side of things, they just got finished demolishing the Seahawks and are in the running for the best team in the NFC. We saw what they did to us a few weeks ago, it wasn't pretty. Ahmad Bradshaw, Brandon Jacobs, Hakeem Nicks and Eli Manning took us to school. They put Tony Romo out. They are formidable.

Good luck on Sunday, Jason Garrett. We don't know what will happen, but we can't wait to see it.
