Jaguars training camp: Offense hits speedbump, other Day 13 takeaways
The Jacksonville Jaguars are getting ready to face off the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 2 of the 2022 NFL preseason. The offense didn’t have a great day of practice Wednesday but that doesn’t mean all was bad.
In fact, there were a handful of positive things the Jags can build on following Day 13 of the training camp. With that in mind, here are four takeaways from Wednesday’s practice.
4. Jaguars QB Trevor Lawrence is focused on the end goal
You have probably heard that process isn’t linear and applies to every single activity you can possibly think of. Whether you want to learn to play an instrument or loss weight, you’re going to hit a few speed bumps and have a few setbacks along the way. Playing in the NFL is no different and Trevor Lawrence struggled on Day 13 after shining throughout most of training camp.
Lawrence was off target several times, had a couple of passes intercepted, and also threw a few that were close to being picked off. All in all, the sophomore signal-caller went 19-of-35 in team drills, per Jordan de Lugo of Generation Jaguar.
But not everything was doom and gloom for Lawrence and the offense. He connected with Zay Jones in the middle and also found Christian Kirk on a deep pass, per John Shipley of Jaguar Report.
Moreover, Lawrence understands that he can learn from a bad day. He met with the local media after practice and talked about the offense’s struggles. ” I thought offensively, we came out a little slow”, Lawrence said. “Found our spots here but it’s got to be a little more consistent”. He then went on to credit the defense.
"I thought the defense really getting after today. They were flying around, they did a good job. So overall, it’s a good day of competing. I think we got to be a little sharper on offense. But yeah, it’s good to see the guys finish."
Listening to Lawrence, it’s fair to say that he won’t let a bad day bring him down and will instead try to make the best of it.
