Minshew mania may end.
Many sources say that the Jaguars were started by Gardner Minshew, who if they continue to struggle, could still be against the Los Angeles Chargers today.
Media darling who has become a cult hero in Jacksonville for his mustache, quick wit and penchant for the Jots may find himself replaced by backup Mike Glennon. At one point, it appeared that Minzeje could be a future QB in Jacksonville. A lot of it is now in doubt, until he can get out of it.
If Minsju struggles and is replaced by Glenn – who has been the only other active QB on game day – the team will likely use the bye to reevaluate their QB status.
Along with Glenn, Jacksonville drafted raw but talented Jake Luton out of Oregon State, and he may eventually factor into the decision as well. Both strong-armed throwers have a different style than Minswa’s, but have in practice been influenced several times.
The Jaguars have suffered five consecutive defeats, as Minswa has contributed four fumbles with five interceptions. On the season, he is 240 of 162 (67.5 percent) for 1,682 yards with 11 touchdowns. Most of his production has taken place with the team coming back.
Head coach Doug Marrone did not deny the move this week, telling reporters that he would be “naive to say no”. This is a possibility.
For Minshew’s part, he is trying to find the positive.
“We are trying to find a solution to everyone together,” he said. “We’ve had some great conversations already this week.”
