Oklahoma football fans will tell you many things about Landry Jones

Some will say the accomplished quarterback will go down as one of OU's all-time greats. Others will say he crumbled in big games and was too inconsistent. 

Regardless of what you think about him, give Jones credit for what he accomplished at Oklahoma. In four seasons, he won 40 games and threw for a Big 12-record 16,646 passing yards and 123 touchdowns. More importantly, he won two Big 12 championships and went 3-1 in bowls.

These accolades are not to be taken lightly. Still, there were multiple flaws in Landry Jones' game that limited his success as a Sooner.

These flaws don't mean Jones wasn't a great quarterback. But they do represent reasons Sooner fans shouldn't be disappointed about Jones' departure from Norman. 

This also doesn't mean Blake Bell (or whoever succeeds Jones) will be a better quarterback than his predecessor.

Whatever the case, it's worth examining these weaknesses. Here are five reasons the Sooners won't miss Landry Jones.
