More Jaguars protection
Compounded together with his five-turnover recreation the week ahead of in a 29-21 loss at Philadelphia, Lawrence has muted the chatter ultimate month that he is enjoying a degree of ball worthy of the “generational talent” label pinned on him since he led Clemson to the 2018 nationwide championship as a freshman.
Right now, the Jaguars training personnel could also be not sure of which quarterback will display up: the Trevor Lawrence who threw for 497 yards, 5 touchdowns, finished 76.8% of his passes, had a 120.26 passer ranking and had no turnovers and no sacks in striking 62 issues on the board in beating Indianapolis and the L.A.

Really, with the whole team, building that consistency week in and week out, showing that one percent improvement every day, every week and building off of that.”
Pederson is huge on duty however mentioned it isn’t making excuses for Lawrence to needless to say he is nonetheless simplest performed 22 NFL video games, the primary 17 amid the turmoil ultimate season underneath Urban Meyer.
“It’s truly laborious for me to move back and get within the minds of the coaches that have been right here,” Pederson said, carefully avoiding any criticism of the Meyer regime. “I simply know that Trevor’s younger, he’s finding out this recreation. I stay going back to this: new training personnel and coordinator ultimate 12 months whilst you got here out of school … on the other hand, this 12 months. When you could have that roughly turnover, you’re finding out a brand new language each and every unmarried 12 months. It’s laborious to get consistency, and that’s what we’re making an attempt to get to.”

“Obviously they are going to be well-rested … you have got to regulate when the sport begins to see in the event that they do the rest other,” he said. “It might be fascinating to see what the brand new wrinkles if there are any, and we will simply have to regulate as the sport is going on.”
