Cowboys would like Ogletree to be more consistent but not down him

Cowboys receiver Kevin Ogletree had what was thought as a breakout game in the season opener against the Giants, catching 8 passes for 114 yards and two touchdowns to spark the 24-17 victory.

He had 25 catches with no touchdowns the first three years ago so the performance considering a turning point his career.

However, Ogletree has caught just 13 passes in the five games since the opener. His play has included a couple of drops as well as a few false start and illegal formation penalties.

Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said they would Ogletree to be more consistent but it wrong to to say he has fallen back into his old ways. Garrett said Ogleree is a better and mature player than he was in the past and the Cowboys still believe in him.

"I think he is a reliable third receiver for us right now and certainly can improve in all areas," Garrett said. "He has matured a lot. he has had some big plays and made some big plays for us. But he has to keep going. He has to get better like everyone else."
