Trevor Lawrence Was The Best Quarterback In The NFL This Season
Trevor Lawrence was the best quarterback in the NFL when it comes to interception percentage and reeeaaaallly close to being fully arrived on the NFL scene. I expected this type of year next year because that Urban Meyer season should be a big ole flush-it-down-the-toilet year, but he's developed so much under Dougie P.
The growth of Lawrence has been incredible. Earlier in the season I talked about how he didn't look like he had confidence. I'd say that was pretty true. He had the young quarterback up and downs and had them in a big way. You could see the look on his face from time to time. When he'd throw a pick (two of those six interceptions were RIGHT on the goal line. They were straight up terrible picks at terrible times in the game. But, he grew. He went nearly two months without an interception. He had only two interceptions the last 9 games. Not bad. I'll take that every single year. But, it's not just the picks.

Obviously, he's not the best overall QB. You'd still take Mahomes over him but next year, I think he'll start pushing his way into being mentioned in the same breath as Josh Allen, Burrow, and Herbert, not Mahomes though. He's still in a class by himself but the next tier will include Trevor Lawrence and that feels fucking good.
We did it. Our beloved Jaguars have our guy. It's nice to know we won't be as bad as we were for the last decade for the next decade. Duval til we die, baby.
