The Jaguars might not be winning a bunch of games, but Minshew is proving time and time again that he’s a legit NFL quarterback.

Remember when people thought the Jaguars were going to tank by playing Minshew so that they could draft Trevor Lawrence?

That sure was cute.

I have no idea what the future holds for the Jaguars and Minshew. I don’t have a clue at all. They don’t look like a playoff team, but they’re not going to be in any position to draft Lawrence.

At this point, I 100% believe they have to build around Minshew. Despite having very little talent around him, the dude just puts up numbers.

He’s consistently proven he can lead a franchise. With Lawrence out of the picture because the Jaguars won’t have the top pick, why wouldn’t you commit to Minshew?

I’m all in on Minshew, and it’s not even a tough call.
