QB Gardner Minshew has multiple thumb fractures. Tank being fueled up in Jacksonville?

Recommended Posts

Would a switch to Glennon help or hurt Jax's chances of winning games?

Sources: Jacksonville Jaguars QB Gardner Minshew has multiple fractures, sprained ligament in thumb

X-rays taken this week revealed that Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Gardner Minshew has multiple fractures and a strained ligament in his right thumb, league sources told ESPN.

Minshew has had discomfort in his thumb since Jacksonville's Oct. 11 game at Houston, a source told ESPN. He did not tell the team about the pain until after the last game, a 39-29 loss to the Chargers, which led to a postgame X-ray in Los Angeles.

The Jaguars (1-6) didn't know about Minshew's injury until this week, per sources.

It is uncertain whether Minshew will be able to play when Jacksonville returns from its bye to host the Texans.

Jacksonville's backup quarterback is Mike Glennon, and Jaguars head coach Doug Marrone already stated before his team's last game against the Chargers that he might have to ponder a quarterback change. The thumb injury could make Marrone's decision easy.

The thumb injury might also explain why Minshew has sailed some passes in recent games, something that was not common previously; the thumb likely impacted his performance more than he and others realized.

Minshew completed a season-low 51.9% of his passes (14-for-27) for 173 yards and two touchdowns in the loss to the Chargers. He airmailed his first pass to a wide-open DJ Chark on the first play of the game, and the Jaguars' offense started the game with four consecutive three-and-outs. Minshew went 0-for-3 and was sacked three times in those four possessions.

Minshew has completed 65.9% of his passes for 1,855 yards and 13 touchdowns with five interceptions this season. He also has lost three fumbles, tied for the second most among all quarterbacks. However, Minshew has the NFL's third-best passer rating and fourth-best completion percentage on third down, per ESPN Stats & Information.

The Jaguars traded Nick Foles in March and turned the team over to Minshew to give him a chance to prove that he could be the franchise's long-term starter. He got off to a hot start, completing 75.4% of his passes for 512 yards and six touchdowns with two interceptions in the Jaguars' first two games, but struggled after that.

Though his stats look good, he hasn't significantly improved on the issues that plagued him as a rookie last season: comfort in the pocket, arm strength, throwing receivers open and working the middle of the field. Plus, he's having trouble hooking up with top receiver Chark, who has caught only 63.4% of his targets (Chark has one drop).

Minshew took over for an injured Foles (broken collarbone) during the 2019 season opener but was put back on the bench when Foles returned in Week 9. Foles, however, was ineffective and Minshew returned as the starter in Week 12.

Minshew went 6-6 as the Jaguars' starter. He had the highest passer rating (91.2) and fewest interceptions (six) of any rookie quarterback while throwing for franchise rookie records in yards (3,271) and touchdowns (21).

Minshew sucks, and this is a sh*tty team, so changing QB makes little to no difference in results. 

 

They are a legitimate threat for that 1.01, but not quite on the Jets' level.

I actually sort of like Minshew, so I would argue hurt, but it's hard to say. They suck, regardless.

There's only one takeaway from all this. The guy, a sixth round draft pick, had a mangled hand the past few weeks and still played better than Darnold. 

An armless QB could probably play better. 4 total offensive yards in the second half.

We really need the Jags to win another game. This is going to be too close for comfort all year

Minshew isn’t great, but Glennon is Nate Peterman level bad.

He's probably out for most or all of this season but this isn't career ending. 

For a sixth round QB he's no Brady but definitely a value pick. He's been a starter performing better than an early first (Darnold) and several other supposedly reputable starting QBs. Maybe he could be Fitzpatrick II. We would be lucky to have Minshew's productivity right now.

 

Also: where is what's his name that was the big Glennon fan now that his big boy is getting another shot?

How do you feel about Darnold?

The Jetsiest thing I can think of would be for Jax to scoop up David Fales and trot him out there the next 10 weeks to lock up the #1 pick...

@Villain The Foe

 

The Mike Glennon show?  Will that be a drama, a thriller, a horror movie or a comedy?

It’s not safe to win a single game this year.

 

With our strength of schedule and how bad 1/3 of the NFL is one single win against the Pats or Dolphins will lose us Trevor Lawrence. Whatever we’re jets fans we know how to have hope dashed every. single. time.

Glennon! Haha! I remember when members of this forum thought he was Jesus and demanded we trade for him because he was the lights out savior that never got the chance. He was going to bring us riches in the form of multiple trips to the Big Show. Hahaha Glennon sucks big balls.

It might not even be Glennon. There’s talk of starting Luton their other 6th round pick, who might actually be pretty pumped at the opportunity and will do everything in his power to win, a la Minchew.

That can’t be possible. The Jags drafted Josh Allen. Remember? The once in a generation talent, the next LT, the player who would change the game, bring the Jets to the Super Bowl, can’t miss prospect, the best defensive player ever to come out of college, future HOFer, the 20 sack, 10 INTs, 5 TD, 50 TFL, 20 FFs per year average football god. 
How could the Jags possibly be drafting high enough to talk about tanking? They drafted an edge rusher. Clearly they don’t know what they are talking about.

Minshew sucks, but is orders of magnitude better than Darnold and it's really not up for debate.
