Wednesday Update: “We believe in who we are…”

JACKSONVILLE – Trevor Lawrence likes the big picture, if not the recent past.

As such, confidence in the second-year playmaker – and for the Jaguars in general – remains high as the AFC South home game is pivotal.

“We really believe who we are,” said Lawrence.

Lawrence said on Wednesday that this was true even after a 29-21 win against the unbeaten Philadelphia Eagles last Sunday in a match where the Jaguars were leading 14-0 and incurring five losses in one.

“We know we’re going in the right direction; it’s all about consistency, ”said Lawrence as southern AFC Jaguars (2-2) prepared for the Houston Texans (0-3-1) match at TIAA Bank Field Sunday at 1pm. “It’s the way we work, it’s our process – we trust it. It paid off for us. “

The Jaguars, which lead the AFC South with the Tennessee Titans, reacted to their lonely previous defeat of the season – Week 1 in Washington – with a home scrap victory over the Indianapolis Colts. After their victory on Sunday, they can advance to 2-0 in the league.

“Hopefully we don’t have too much bouncing habit,” said broadband Christian Kirk. “But that’s the mentality of this band and the kind of guys we have. We always say, “When things don’t go well, we shoot ourselves in the foot.” We wanted to go back to the training ground, we had a good day today.

“We want to end the week well and go out and make a statement on Sunday.”

The Jaguars have been leading with at least eight points in every game this season. They lost an 8-point lead in the fourth quarter in a 26:22 loss to Washington, defeated the Colts (24-0) and the Los Angeles Chargers (38-10) in weeks 2-3, and then scored 29 consecutive Eagles points before the late rally failed succeeded.

“We still have a long way to go to where we want to be when it comes to playing our best football at the end of the year,” said Lawrence. – We played really good football early on and sometimes we didn’t play very well. There are so many things to build on – good and bad.

Lawrence said the key is to use the experiences of Weeks 1-4 to “be more consistent.”

“There are always things you can do to be more consistent,” said Lawrence. “It’s managing all situations. We are a young team. I feel like we are gaining many great experiences. We’re just going to keep learning. “

Lawrence, No. 1 overall in the NFL Draft 2021 standings, made one steal on Sunday but lost the NFL record of four fumbles in rainy, cold conditions.

“We all know as players what this winning performance looks like,” he said. “For me, it wasn’t like that on Sunday. You just grow out of it and learn. “

Kirk added: “I told him after the game:” One person cannot win a soccer match. It concerns all of us. ” We just didn’t play good football. You learn from it. This is the process that I am going through. I know it does. It doesn’t take longer.

Lawrence, after dropping 12 touchdowns and 17 steals last season, has eight touchdowns and two takeovers in four games this season.

“Obviously I didn’t play well on Sunday so this is not where I want to be,” he said. “I am not letting it affect me at all. I know I have to play better. But if you look at this year as a whole, I know I have taken many steps in the right direction and I know that I have improved a lot.

– The quarterback must play well to win this league. We all understand that. If I can stay consistent and keep taking these steps, I really do believe in this team.
