Trevor Lawrence: We really believe in who we are

Trevor Lawrence committed five turnovers Sunday, and the Jaguars lost an early 14-point lead in a 29-21 loss to the Eagles. Lawrence and the Jaguars, though, haven’t lost faith.

“We really believe in who we are,” Lawrence said, via John Oehser of the team website.

The Jaguars are tied with the Titans atop the AFC South at 2-2. They play the Texans (0-3-1) on Sunday, a team that swept the Jaguars last season.

“We know we’re heading in the right direction; it’s just about consistency,” Lawrence said. “It’s the way we work, our process. We trust that. It has been paying off for us.”

The Jaguars are learning how to win. It’s a process.

They haven’t won more than six games in a season since 2017 and were fourth in the division each of the past four seasons.

“There are always things you can do to be more consistent,” Lawrence said. “It’s managing all the situations. We’re a young team. I feel like we’re getting a lot of great experience. We’re just going to continue to learn.”

Lawrence, the No. 1 overall selection in 2021, threw one interception against the Eagles and lost an NFL-record four fumbles.

“We all know as players what that winning performance looks like,” Lawrence said. “For myself, that wasn’t it on Sunday. You just grow from it and you learn.”

Lawrence, though, has grown since last season when he threw 17 interceptions and 12 touchdowns. He has two interceptions and eight touchdowns this season and has shown signs he’s headed toward being a franchise quarterback.

“I obviously didn’t play well Sunday, so that’s not where I want to be,” Lawrence said. “I’m not letting that affect me at all. I know I have to play better. But if you look at the year as a whole, I know I’ve made a lot of steps in the right direction and I know I’ve improved a lot.

“The quarterback has to play well to win in this league. We all understand it. If I can stay consistent and keep taking those steps, I really believe in this team.”

  1. To be somewhat fair, the game was played in a monsoon. But.. if he can’t hold on to the ball in the rain, what’s he going to do when he sees sleet and snow?

  2. Shades of greatness from him it seems. Always liked the Jags. Gonna be a fun team to watch

  3. He was the second coming last week. The hype some of these get is ridiculous.

  4. I’d say he’s playing alright. Middle of the pack qb which is a big improvement from last year..does he take a leap like Josh allen did from year 1 to year 2 noooo way. Think more along the lines of Carson wentz playing for doug Peterson in Philly as a ceiling.

    Oh did Allen make a big leap from year 1 to 2? Hmmm…. revisionist history I think. He improved sure, but from bad to not bad. I think we can expect similar from TLaw.
    Allen didn’t become a good QB until year 3 really. I mean a budding star. It wasn’t until season 3 that he earned his draft position.
