Third String But Playing on Special Teams
Landry came out in relief in two games last year and to his credit played well (AZ and OAK). His stat lines looked better than his game however, as his yardage came mostly on catch-and-runs by superior athletes (AB and Bryant).Our defense has the habit at times of making ordinary QBs look like pro bowlers. So I wont be surprised if throws it all over the pats on sunday. Regarding pre season performances of his , its had to gauge .Garrapolo looked quite bad in the week 3 pre season game as well. Also ,I am trying to remember, wasnt landry jones the QB when you guys beat the raiders in a shootout at home last year?
His only full-game performance was at KC, and he was pretty dreadful. He also somehow managed two INTs in four total throws in very brief relief of Ben at SEA.
Jones is in the final year of his rookie contract. It would not surprise me at all if Pitt went another direction next year at backup (again, really the QB2 job was supposed to be Gradkowski's but he just kept getting hurt)...and if Jones was out of football entirely as of next year.
I hope he proves me wrong tomorrow...but IMO he's really a borderline QB3 (if that) and an INT machine.
