In this one-on-one interview with TSD's Ben Love, Landry opens up on the passing game, the trust from the coaching staff to Zach Mettenberger to the receivers and how the team approaches offense this fall.
Ben Love: What's the biggest difference between Zach Mettenberger last year and this year?
Jarvis Landry: His trust level. His trust level has increased. I think that as long as he continues to approach practice and approach meetings the way that he's doing, he's going to continue to have success.
BL: I'm assuming that trust starts with the coaching staff. Talk about that part of it, what you think Cam Cameron has seen in him that's allowed these first two games to unfold the way that they have?
JL: It's just Zach with a year under his belt and giving him an opportunity to kind of control some things on his own, taking the reins off of him, I'll say. I think Coach Cam and the offensive staff do a great job of putting Zach in situations to be successful, where he can trust his arm. So I think that's been the biggest thing for Zach during the transition this year.
BL: The fact that you guys now have these two games on tape, what does that show SEC teams when you get into SEC play that you guys can do? And how does it change the game?
JL: We want to score points. We want to score points, we want to be fearless, we want to take chances, but we're also going to play smart football. One of the things that Coach Cam preaches and the whole offensive staff preaches is ‘We're going to aggressive, but we're not going to be reckless. We're going to be tactical.' So every approach that we have and every approach that we take to the field, or practice or the meeting room, whatever, we're going to be smart in the decisions that we make come game day.
