Dude, come on. If I'm going to judge if Landry Jones can play in the NFL based on just this one game, I would say he didn't make very many throws or plays that had me going, "Wow, I want HIM as my starting QB!"
He had one whopping TD throw that required a good arm to make happen. The rest were wide open looks, easy crosses/slants, or WRs who made stupendous plays. Basically, he threw mostly TDs that Matt Cassel was capable of throwing. Think about it. When was the last time Cassel threw a TD that had you going, "Holy shit what a throw!" How many of those did he have in 2010? How many has he had in his CAREER?
Those easy throws are the kind of throws that Landry Jones has feasted on his entire career. Just like Cassel.
Now Geno Smith on the other hand...
