Moments after Landry Jones was drafted by the Steelers on Saturday, ESPN brought Trent Dilfer in to analyze the former OU quarterback.

But Dilfer seemed a bit more interested in torching the OU coaching staff and talent level, as a way to evaluate Jones.

Here are his candid and unfiltered comments. Tell us how you really feel, Trent.

“I went through all Landry Jones’ 2012 film and I just disregarded it. I do not hold him accountable for what happened last year. The offense is a joke. It’s spitball. The receivers are brutal. The playcalling is brutal. They take him out in the red zone, they never let him get into a flow. My final grade on Landry Jones is go back to 2011, he’s a high-ceiling guy. I like a lot about him. I hate what they did with him in 2012…The whole offense is built around getting flashy numbers and not scoring points.”
