“We need more belief and more high spirits around this team,” he said, according to USA Today. “And really, more fight. That’s really, I feel like, one of our weaknesses. We need to build a stronger backbone, fight and also make sure that we brought everything possible to come out with a victory.”

Lawrence has been paid to be the anchor for the defensive line but he has also struggled at times. He’s recorded two sacks and 24 tackles in the team’s first seven games of the season.
