Could of definitely been some mental aspects. Hopefully he comes back and looks like his old self this year.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.
He's just a guy who can beat man coverage in contested catch situations. He's not a technician or a burner, so he's never going to be open, but he's pretty good at the catch point.What is his old self though? Do we know what Gallup is? I feel like I should but I don’t.
it isnt just healthy, it is mental, and getting into the groove of playing again.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 take that !!!!! Let's see .Yeah. Like 60 grabs and 900-1000 yards
He can do that but he also knows how to stem routes too. That was his big problem last year, his plant leg when turning left was suspect so he rounded those cuts badly. You're supposed to be lateral or coming back to the QB and he was way upfield.He's just a guy who can beat man coverage in contested catch situations. He's not a technician or a burner, so he's never going to be open, but he's pretty good at the catch point.
Problem is that guys like that have a shelf life, and can be very streaky. He'll get way more opportunities in 1-1 coverage down the field this year than last year though.
He’s never been a separation guy…he makes great catches but it’s because he doesn’t get open a lot. I like him, but you can’t expect him to be a great #2, injury or not, defenses will never have to account for him with more than one defender. He can be a phenom #3 but you need two guys ahead of him who can consistently get separation and frustrate defenses if we are going to be a legit contender.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.
