Answer me this He threw 2183 times in 4 years almost as much as Luck and RG111 put together had 63% completion 16647 yards 123 td's and 52 int's with 54 sacks... DId he have no pressure?? Big 12 playing nationallly ranked teams ..... How could he do so well if he was so bad at pressure... RG111 only had around 1100 attempts in his college career and took 79 Sacks... No wonder he threw so few int's and has such a high completion percentage... (Sacks equals punts and turn overs Landry should have just taken the sacks but he didnt'
Sacks equal a lost down. Not every sack is a turnover or happens on 3rd down and forces a punt. A good QB can come back on the very next play and negate a sack on the previous play, like Luck and Griffin did all the time in college.
Landry Jones lower sack number per attempts is meaningless if you're using it to argue he's good under pressure.
The fact that Bob Stoops took the ball out of Landry Jones' hands in the redzone in 2011 and 2012 and gave it to Blake Bell to run it is just embarrassing.
