Steelers Are In Good Hands

With the status on QB Ben Roethlisberger being able to go against the Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium still in question, Pittsburgh fans and players alike may be able to take a sigh of relief and relaxation after the performance of Landry Jones on Sunday. Mike Vick was playing very poorly (3/8, 6 yards) when he left the game late in the first half against the Cardinals and Jones came in and played spectacularly, going 8-12, 168 yards and 2 touchdown tosses to WR Martavis Bryant, including an 88 yard bomb to seal the deal. Now, I’m not saying that Jones will have a 149.3 QBR every game like we saw Sunday, but these were good signs for the Steelers. Jones looked confident, and seemed to have better understanding and rhythm than Vick did. When you look at the highlights, Jones had a type of swagger and poise in his step and other players noticed it, such as star running back Le’Veon Bell. “He let guys know when they were hot” is what Bell was being quoted on saying to an ESPN columnist after the game Sunday. News just came out that Vick has a small hamstring tear, so if Roethlisberger can’t go, Landry Jones is the guy in charge. After his debut performance shocking many, and this Steel City defense looking great, holding the NFL’s leader in points per game to just one touchdown and a total of just 13 points, this is a Steelers team that will be scary in the future.

    I read Jarrett’s sport articles as they come out, and I’m overly impressed with his wording and play on words at such a young age. I may be just as bias as he is with Johnny Manziel because I’m his sister who lives in NC, but he’s got a future ahead of him in writing!
