According to Adam Schefter, the NFL icon is the first player in league history to ever throw three touchdowns and complete 95% of their passes opening weekend.

Week one is in the books, and Minshew Mania is already cranked up to 100! I just love to see it. Minshew is a legend in the NFL after barely more than one season, and I couldn’t be happier.

The dude is so much fun to watch. There’s nothing about him that pops off the page as an elite quarterback. In fact, Minshew looks like he just walked off a construction site.

Yet, the man just makes plays.

If you’re not a fan of Gardner Minshew, then you’re just not a fun person. It’s that simple. Minshew brings so much energy to the field, elevates everyone around him and makes the atmosphere exciting.

He’s the exact kind of person I want under center for my team.

Finally, if anyone thinks the Jaguars can tank for Trevor Lawrence and play Gardner Minshew at the same time, then they just don’t know anything about football.
