In a slump: Are the Dallas Cowboys "asking" for too much?
Michael Gallup appeared to be a major winner of the shift when Dallas Cowboys coach Mike McCarthy took over offensive play-calling duties as the "Texas Coast Offense" was the offseason's big story.
Gallup frequently produced his best work on slant routes because McCarthy's new playbook prioritized crisp, fast throws to keep the chains moving.
Combining the two appeared to be a winning combination.
However, Gallup has not performed well in his last two games. Only five of the receiver's fifteen targets have been received for 39 yards.
He had ten targets against the Los Angeles Chargers, but he only managed to catch three passes.
Robert Prince, the receivers coach, provided analysis on Gallup's inconsistent play during the first six weeks of the season.
"Unfortunately, things don't always work out," Prince remarked.
"But we put MG out there on the island, and we're expecting him to win those battles and get press coverage."
