Minshewmania's next stop is in the Rocky Mountains

Excerpt:

Quote

DENVER (AP) -- He's the real-life Uncle Rico lookalike from Napoleon Dynamite, the ''Mississippi Mustache,'' the rookie whose legend is growing faster than any of the more celebrated quarterbacks taking their lumps on the field or biding their time on the sideline.

Gardner Minshew II, who leads the Jaguars (1-2) into Denver on Sunday to face the unusually quiet Broncos (0-3), has been the biggest surprise in the NFL's 100th season.

That's not to suggest the sixth-round draft pick holds it against any of the league's other 31 teams for bypassing him until the Jaguars made him the 178th overall selection and the 10th quarterback taken in the draft.

''I'm 6-1, I don't run very fast and don't have a super strong arm. That's kind of what'' teams look for, Minshew said. ''I know I'm right where I'm supposed to be. I wasn't supposed to go in a higher round. I wasn't supposed to go to any other team. I'm right where I'm supposed to be and I couldn't be more grateful to be here.''

Neither could the Jaguars, who gave Nick Foles a four-year, $88 million contract in April with the belief he would solve their two-decade-long search for a quarterback only to see him break his left collarbone in the first quarter of their opener against Kansas City.

Enter Minshew, who completed 22 of 25 passes for 275 yards with two TDs. His completion rate (88 percent) was the highest in league history for any quarterback with at least 15 pass attempts while making his debut.

It wasn't a fluke, either.

Minshew leads all NFL rookies with five TD throws and his 73.9 percent completion rate and 110.6 passer rating are both the highest by a rookie in his first three games in the Super Bowl era.

Minshew's path to the pros took him through Troy, Northwest Mississippi Community College, East Carolina and Washington State, where he threw for nearly 5,000 yards with 38 touchdowns last year.

''Minshewmania'' has grown with the quirky quarterback's fashion sense , which ranges from jean shorts, or jorts, Hawaiian shirts and a thick headband to 1970s-style throwback suits as colorful as his personality.

''I have fun, but if you ask anybody in the building, they'll tell you how hard I work and how serious I do take it,'' Minshew said. ''I just try to have as much fun as possible and that's why I play my best, too.''

Minshew revealed this week that he once took a hammer to his right hand at East Carolina in a misguided attempt to extend his college playing career.

''That was really the only way for me to get a redshirt,'' explained Minshew, who failed, fortunately, to break his hand. ''Looking back at it, it was pretty dumb. ... But I always tell people, what would you do to play more ball? And that's damn near anything.''

Minshew said he's looking forward to meeting Von Miller.

''Hopefully it's after the game'' and not in the backfield, Minshew said.

So far, that hasn't been a problem for Denver's opponents because the Broncos are still seeking their first sack and first takeaway even though Miller and Bradley Chubb have played 96 percent of the snaps.

''That's shocking,'' Minshew said. ''I know a lot of people that are down on them, but they're a lot better than what their record says. ... They've got some serious talent over there, those two guys on the edges especially.''

Love the legend like everyone else, but would surprised if he ever became an ff difference maker. I would be excited to get a first for him.

He's an FF difference maker right now. 

I'd take a first for him, but the chances of him becoming the starter are too high to sell any more cheaply than that.

Watson is probably the only successful QB who threw under 50 MPH at the combine. 

Mahomes threw 60, so Minshew is right in between Watson and Mahomes in terms of arm strength, by that measure. 

They changed how those #s are reported a couple years ago(?) but generally 54-55 is the O/U historically.  Tyrod was very low.  Watson is very low.  Schaub was probably very low.  There are probably some others.

Minshew should be fine.

Yeah they do a left and right, but it's usually pretty similar so a lot of places just average it I think.

What would it take in a two-QB dynasty?

Gardner Minshew completed 19-of-33 passes for 213 yards, two touchdowns and zero interceptions in the Jaguars' 26-24, Week 4 win over the Broncos.

Minshew Mania has reached a fever pitch. The Jaguars’ rookie QB didn’t post the prettiest stat line, but he routinely extended the play with his feet before making clutch throws down the field. This was evident on his first touchdown pass to Ryquell Armstead, when Minshew made no fewer than three defenders miss before finding Armstead open in the end zone. Minshew would later hit James O’Shaughnessy down the seam for a TD, and he had a short scoring strike to D.J. Chark nullified by penalty. His ability to play through the pain on the game's final drive to set the Jaguars up for a game-winning field goal was particularly awesome. Minshew probably doesn’t have enough pass-game volume to consistently function as an above-average fantasy QB, but he’s sure making the Jaguars fun again. They take on the Panthers in Week 5.

This guy has real pocket presence that's just instinctive. He got clobbered a few times today and bounced back and hung in. They had to respect him enough to the point where Fournette just had a day. If Ramsey comes back, watch out for JAX. Gotta love it.

absolutely. Definitely a starter in this league. Has excellent accuracy, knows how to climb/move in the pocket, doesn't crumble under pressure, goes through his reads. Team seems to love him. The only knock is the lack of exceptional arm strength and perhaps doesn't have prototypical size but that's about it.

Yep. That's about the book on him right now.

We have to be deep into QB controversy territory, and possibly well on our way to crossing into the Minshew side of it.

If they're leading their division he's not coming out.

For sure, and regardless it will be telling...  

They will have to make a distinction to avoid the dreaded controversy.  One option would be to not bring Foles off of IR as mentioned above.

If he does come off of IR, it will speak volumes if JAX says they need to stick with Minshew.

He's pretty much played his way into the starting role IMO.  He's a rookie who looks like he is right about on par with Foles (league average starter) in his rookie year, so it would be pretty hard to go away from that thinking that a rookie will have upside from there.

Foles has to come off IR (if he’s healthy) if for no other reason than to have a decent backup if Jax makes the playoffs.

4-0 Minshew's Swag Stash will be pairing Gardner with Mahomes' and the KC stack in its super flex league.

I don't even care if Foles returns to starting.  Minshew's karma will carry the day.

Gardner Minshew (knee) remained limited at Thursday's practice.

Minshew is a little banged up, but rest assured, the Jock Strap King will be in uniform Sunday at Carolina. The reigning Rookie of the Month has been brilliant in the early going, ranking sixth among signal-callers in both completion percentage (69.4) and quarterback rating (106.9).

I'm so, SO happy that Chris Berman is no longer hacking it up on ESPN, just the thought of what he'd do with a name like Garner Min-Min-MIN-SHOOOOO! or Minshoo Pork 

uggh.

Gardner Minshew (knee) wasn't listed on the Jaguars' final injury report.

Minshew Mania will travel to Carolina this week to take on the Panthers' sneaky solid defense. Overall, they've allowed a league-low 3.9 net yards per pass attempt this season. Minshew is facing the week's third-highest combined pressure rate between his offensive line and the Panthers' pass rush. He's demonstrated the ability to escape from pressure and make plays off script in recent weeks, but don't be afraid to fire up the Panthers defense in this spot.
