The world tuned in to watch Gardner Minshew on Thursday Night Football, and we got the bad version of him all night long.
Analyst Steve Smith was critical of Gardner Minshew after the Jacksonville Jaguars QB looked pretty bad all game long until the 4th quarter, when the game was already out of reach.
“He is the franchise quarterback … for the struggle bus. In the second half, he didn’t have a completion over 10 yards until the end of the fourth quarter. He didn’t look very comfortable back there,” said Smith.
“I think we got him figured out a little bit. He couldn’t read zone coverage if zone coverage popped him upside his moustache and went in his nose. He still wouldn’t get it. He struggled, because he couldn’t get past himself,” Smith said.
Minshew went 30 for 42 for 275 yards with an interception and lost fumble in the defeat.
