    I see a lot of Steve Smith in him, not quite as talented, but every bit of the drive, I love watching him play.

    This article was written by Landry and I think it's the better choice for understanding who he is as a player- http://www.theplayerstribune.com/jarvis-landry-lsu-how-we-play-football-in-louisiana/

    not quite as talented? well..........................................Jarvis is not quite utilized as Smith was. Jarvis is over-utilized for a lack of run game at times, with these bubble screens and VERY short passes. It has been shown this year what he can do one on one down the field. Be careful on the under-valuation of Jarvis, because like Welker he could go to NE and torture Miami for years to come.

    We can just call it speed, Landry is a 4.51 guy, Smith was a 4.39 guy, thats the only real difference in talent.

    Landry has football speed. We saw that against Jets and Cards. No one has asked him to go deep one on one. He does what he asked across the middle, screens or short routes. I feel he has been limited here so far. I hope Carroo can develop into this type of WR and let Jarvis get the ball more in open field

    Comparing him to SS is a huge compliment, you are aware of this, yes?

    You seem to act like I'm dissing him or something, SS was Jarvis Landry before Jarvis Landry, with more speed and anger.

    Im sorry


    My frustration is they under and over utilize Jarvis. Under in the vertical game , over in the short check downs

    I get it bro, i'm a huge Landry fan myself, and I wasn't crazy about the draft pick at the time, I thought, not enough ceiling at the time, but he turned me right around with his tenacity, and I do think he can be more utilized vertically, but from the slot position, if he's working vs #1 CBs, vertical routes wouldn't work, he's not running past #1 CBs, he just doesn't have that kind of speed.

    But I do agree he has deceptive speed, and he gets to full speed very quickly.

    SS though, was working vs #1's all the time, and he had the speed to challenge the best CBs in the league.

    I think Welker is a very fair comparison for Landry, except that Landry also has that SS gene, as DelHomme once said of SS, "he has competitive arrogance, and I mean that in the best way", that is Landry too, you cannot convince either one of them that they aren't the best WR in the NFL, lol, and that's what makes Jarvis great.

    Landry can be very productive if he stays on the slot and has a mismatch all day. Key is Parker and Stills need to be here
