In his short tenure as the starting quarterback of the Jacksonville Jaguars, Trevor Lawrence has shown maturity beyond his years and there’s not a day in which he speaks as if he were a vested veteran. He always has sound answers to whatever he’s asked every time he speaks to the local media. Nevertheless, he avoided getting into controversy and opted to weigh in on a discussion that has made the rounds in recent years.

In his most recent sitdown with the local media, Lawrence was asked whether Die Hard is a Christmas movie or not. However, he said he hasn’t watched it and for that reason, he can lean one way or another, “I don’t know, I don’t even think I’ve seen Die Hard, I don’t want to upset people”.

In spite of all the technological advances over the last century, there are many questions that still baffle mankind. Is there life after death? Why is water slippery? Is Die Hard a Christmas movie? While it will be years, even decades before scientists can come up with answers for the first two questions, there’s a clear answer for the third one.

Die Hard is indeed a Christmas movie. If it’s set on Christmas and there are references to the holiday throughout the movie, there’s no doubt you are watching a Christmas movie, and whenever Lawrence watches it, he will surely agree with that assessment. Not only that, he will agree it is the best Christmas movie ever made, even better than Home Alone, It’s a Wonderful Life, the Holiday, and Iron Man 3. Maybe he’s already seen it but didn’t want to be at the wrong end of the debate, and that’s a smart approach.

Moving on from Meyer brings direction and clarity to the Jaguars.

Lawrence was also asked about what his thoughts were on the firing of head coach Urban Meyer. He told the media he’s got respect for him and appreciates what he’s done for him, as he’s the reason he’s in Jacksonville. He went on to say that he wishes him the best moving forward but cutting ties with Meyer has brought a bit of clarity and direction moving forward.

Later, the former Clemson Tiger said he’s excited to play the next four weeks and finish the season with momentum. On the other hand, he said the team must take it day by day and turn over the page and keep going. All things considered, that’s the best approach the Jags can take, as dwelling in the past won’t help them get prepared for the remaining games in 2021.

Without having to carry Meyer’s weight on their shoulders, the Jaguars should be able to play more efficiently in their next four games. Their next chance they will have to prove they’re better off without Meyer will be when they take on the Texans.
