Lawrence, offense “making a lot of progress…”


“That’s what’s cool about camp, working through all that stuff. When you see it coming together, you have a game and you check it out and it works the way you both think it does, that’s the cool part.”

Lawrence said the transition was smooth and the practices worked well.

“When you get new staff, new players, a new system, that’s one thing you try to limit – that’s mistakes,” Lawrence said. “You’re going to have some at the start, but we’ve really been pretty clean. As far as knowing the assignments, offensively, the guys have done a really good job.

“Now it’s just a matter of ironing out all the little details so we’re all on the same page and really clean.”

Lawrence, who threw for 12 touchdowns and 17 interceptions last season as a rookie, has looked sharp for most of five practices this week. He had a near-perfect passing day on Tuesday and showed good timing with wide receivers throughout most of Saturday’s practice.

“He looks sharp,” head coach Doug Pederson said. “He sees the pitch very well at the moment. He’s commanding the attack. He’s still in the growth mentality, which is exciting. He still wants to improve every day. We’ve seen that.”

Lawrence also looked confident in the pocket, throwing with precision and appearing to make the right calls quickly – which was also true throughout most of the 2022 offseason schedule.

“You have to have faith in the work you’ve done and the way you’ve prepared,” Lawrence said. “I think that’s what gives you confidence is knowing that you’re ready. I know I’m ready mentally, physically, all those things, I had a really good offseason, I had great spring with these guys. Then it’s just building every day.

“It’s not even really about how you look on day one. Obviously you want to look good, but it’s about how you get better every day. When September comes around and we’re playing in Washington [in the regular-season opener]how we look that day is most important.

“I feel like we’re in a good situation. I’m happy with our situation. But as I said before, we have a lot of work to do.”
