The Magic of Minshew

We’ve made it three weeks into the football season without taking time to talk about the most entertaining player in the NFL – Jacksonville Jaguars QB Gardner Minshew. You may have heard about the way he does his warm-up stretches in only his jock strap, how he tried to break his own hand for a medical red-shirt, or how he’s giving hope to football fans in Florida that one of the state’s three teams still stand a shot (sorry, Miami and Tampa Bay). We learned a lot more about Nick Foles’ replacement and the Washington State alum through an interview SB Nation did with Minshew’s father, including how his competitiveness almost resulted in his teammates’ fathers being beaten up.

If we asked the fans whether or not they want QBs like Gardner Minshew in the FCFL, we think we’d get a resounding “Hell Yes!” We can’t blame them – we think Minshew is just the breath of fresh air a brand new football league needs. Before the first-ever, fan-run draft, we’ll be conducting Q&A sessions with all your draft options, but if there are any specific questions you want to ask these athletes, let us know. Especially if you want to know whether or not they can cut their own jorts or grow a mean mustache.
