The Cavalcade debut of, “USE A CUCK-TAYEL STICK” …
If he was really that good, the team would be winning games by 40 instead of 35 …
Trevor Lawrence doesn’t check down on a play, gets picked off, and now, apparently, he’s going rogue in his sophomore season and Dabo can’t control him.
He hangs up an ill-advised pass into traffic for a touchdown in a game that Clemson had no chance of losing, and now he’s regressing and might not be the be-all-end-all quarterback prospect we all thought he was?
It’s hard when the Joe Burrows and Tua Tagovailoas and Jalen Hurts’ of the world are completing 119% of their passes for 104 yards per attempt, but all of this concern about Lawrence and his sophomore slide has to slow down just a wee bit.
This is the preseason. Clemson isn’t losing a game until the College Football Playoff, so this is the time to push the envelope. We all know Lawrence can hit the midrange pass to the open guy, but why not let him try out his hero ball style just to see what he can and can’t get away with?
Yeah, he threw two interceptions against Louisville. And Clemson won 45-10.
Yeah, he has eight picks on the year, but none of them came in the close call against a jacked up North Carolina.
Yeah, he barely hit half of his passes against Syracuse and threw two interceptions, and he also threw for three scores and close to 400 yards in the 41-6 win.
He’s Trevor Lawrence … it’s going to be okay.
The defense will clean up the messes, the Tigers will win everything by at least three scores, and if you don’t want him with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, the word “yoink!” won’t be yelled loud enough by the team with the two.
