(Photo by Mike Comer/Getty Images)Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence didn’t exactly light it up at home against Georgia Tech this past weekend. Despite the lopsided 52-14 score, Lawrence’s arm did very little of the actual damage to the Yellow Jackets.Pro Football Focus senior analyst Steve Palazzolo came away unimpressed with his performance.Taking to Twitter on Wednesday, Palazzolo thought Lawrence was “pretty bad” on Saturday. He qualified his statement by stating that Lawrence is “still awesome.” But he did show poor decision-making that we didn’t see in his historic freshman year.“I don’t mean to diminish the 2021 draft hype but Trevor Lawrence was pretty bad against Georgia Tech.“Lawrence is still awesome, and the Clemson offense will be fine, but poor decision making that we didn’t see as a true frosh and overall inaccuracy. He’ll be better.”Lawrence is still awesome, and the Clemson offense will be fine, but poor decision making that we didn’t see as a true frosh and overall inaccuracy. He’ll be better— Steve Palazzolo (@PFF_Steve) September 4, 2019 It certainly wasn’t the best performance of Lawrence’s young career. The two interceptions that he threw were half as many as he threw all of last season.He finished the game 13-of-23 for 168 yards and a touchdown, with another 24 yards and a touchdown on the ground.Unfortunately, the weak performance may have adversely affected Lawrence’s Heisman Trophy hopes. While the odds on who wins the coveted title remained the same after the game, many other quarterbacks and running backs had stellar games in Week 1.Suffice it to say, Lawrence will need to get back to overwhelming opponents if he wants the Heisman.last_img
