A healthy Gallup is one of the best #2 receivers in football

and the tough/miracle sideline catches are his staple


Just no. He was never a number 2 and when asked he failed miserably. His catch to target rate I believe is 55% which is rather low. He's a number 3 at best and he should do well being the no 3 receiver again. He can't handle no 2 roll, he was the 3RD worst separator in the league last year.

Good point, but not all receivers win through separation.

I've got mixed feelings on Gallup's future. Will delay saying more until I think about it some more.

Yeah the national media is pumping the Ravens offense up with OBJ, Flowers, and Bateman. I think our trio is miles better and Dak is a better passer then Lamar.
1000%....kinds feels like the dream team crap from Philly a few years back

I thought he was ahead of schedule and was going to be on the same page with Dak and be a major contributor week 4 last year?

That's what I was told. And was dogged on this site for stating otherwise.

It must have been a really devastating ACL. I mean they all are but how fast they tried to push him back and how he looked, certainly makes me wonder about the Cowboys medical people. Not a good look IMO.
Well there's just a difference between being healthy enough to play and being fully strong and confident on the strength of the knee. It doesn't mean the medical staff was wrong to clear him or anything.

I’ll go on record as stating that it’ll be more shocking if Gallup isn’t back to his old self than if he is.

I don't think it was a medical issue. It was simply that he was coming back from a serious injury to his lower body. That affects you in a lot of ways. The previous year, Dak both strained his throwing shoulder and his right calf coming off his broken ankle. Neither of them was caused directly by his ankle injury but indirectly were the result of it. Flexibility, trust, etc., have to be reestablished after a serious injury and sometimes it just takes time. There are some players like Terrell Owens who could seemingly hop in a hyperbaric chamber after a devastating injury and return the next day ready to play and there are some who just need more time to get there even when the injury is fully healed.

I’m a Gallup fan but it’s been a few years now. He’s lived off of that 1k season for awhile now. I think when we talk about him we reference that season but if you see his whole body of work he’s produced like a number 3. I don’t know what Gallup is. He shows flashes of brilliance at times. Sometimes he shows he’s unfocused or not able to get separation.
