WR Michael Gallup Won’t Get Lost In The Cowboys Offensive Firepower

The Cowboys offense is dangerous.

One of the most hyped units in all football reached that hype apex on draft night, when Dallas selected Oklahoma wide out CeeDee Lamb in the first round.

The memes began immediately. How can you stop an offense with Dak Prescott, Ezekiel Elliott, Amari Cooper, and now CeeDee Lamb?

Cowboys Nation responded, but not in the way you’d expect. Rather than indulge in the praise they called out: don’t forget about Michael Gallup.

Gallup bursted onto the scene during his sophomore season, going for over 1,000 yards and cementing himself as a premier compliment to Cooper’s WR1 status. Gallup also scored six touchdowns, and racked up 16.8 yards per reception.

He was a hometown favorite before that, though, earning pre-draft love from much of the fanbase. So much so that he was the fan favorite pick of that 2018 class.

For whatever reason, Gallup is yet to receive that national recognition, but that could work in his favor during the 2020 season.

You want to ignore Gallup? Go ahead. He will have another 1,000 yard season and continue to be (arguably) the team’s best red zone receiving threat. Prescott and Gallup developed a consistent chemistry throughout the 2019 season, one that should only grow if Gallup sees as much single coverage as I’d expect he will going forward.

Of course, Lamb and Cooper will be excellent weapons as well. Each of these has WR1 potential, of which Cooper has filled repeatedly in Dallas. But you can never have too many dynamic pass catchers, especially in today’s NFL where your passing offense is likely the most important part of your team.

For an offense which is littered with firepower and famous names, it could be the underrated and under-recognized Michael Gallup which takes this Cowboys offense (and team) to the next level.

What do you think?

  1. Yea i look for Gallup to make a big jump this yr. Be hard pressed to find a better trio in the league then our 3 though Lamb is still unproven at the pro level. The player im looking at is E Elliott. Did anyone else notice he lacked his elite burst last yr just didnt seem as explosive all yr not sure if he was carrying excess weight or what but if he regains that and can stay away from the off field drama we could be unstoppable offensively.

    • Zeke actually looked really good towards the end of the season. I do think him holding out thru training camp hurt him and it took him almost half the season to get into “football game shape” as to where if he was in camp he would have been ready game #1. But anyway, I think Gallup will have a huge yr along with Amari & CeeDee!

    • This is it, #1 offense, the return of the doomday defence. Look at our front four. Four pro bowlers, young aggressive linebackers, that alone will make the secondary better than average. Wide open offence will open up everything. No more stacked boxes to stop the run.

  2. Only issue Zeek had was the blocking scheme we were using. U can’t run powers and counters behind a line that’s pass setting. Both he and TP had to get skinny and press the line and hope to find a crease. Zeek rarely got to roll down hill. That’s why he had less explosive plays and looked slower. He rarely had room to to roll.

  3. In terms of explosiveness and firepower, the player with the most of those attributes is Pollard. And just as I was hoping he’d get more touches with a creative new coaching staff, along drops Lamb right into our laps. I just think its going to be difficult to get Pollard the ball more than 5 time a game (n average) … though I expect him to be in on more snaps, I just don’t see him getting the ball any more than last year. That would be a shame in my opinion.

  4. Agree Bill doubtful Pollard gets more touches and he is definitely an explosive playmaker. With all these weapons we got alot mouths to feed. But he is a quality back up. But who knows what mischief Zeke might gets into and it makes me nervous he has more free time on his hands. He’s one bad decision away from being suspended again.
