What a coming out party for Jacksonville quarterback Gardner Minshew II. The 6th round rookie from Washington State made his debut in week one when starter Nick Foles went down with a left clavicle injury. Now in his Thursday Night Football debut, the unlikely starter is actually looking really solid.
What’s more interesting about Minshew is not his playing or stats, but rather all of the fun facts and information that’s regarding his background, personality, and journey to the league. He’s basically the real life version of the Blue Mountain State’s Alex Moran character. Not much was known about him before, but now the internet has fallen in love with him. His crazy white boy image is taking off really quickly and while its not proven if he can win, at least he’s entertaining.
