I think you have to commit to his style and needs, he could be a gun in the Shanahan system. 

His instincts are 10/10.

No. He’s a Top Tier Backup. People put wayyyyy too much stock in TD-INT Ratio.Jacoby Brissett is also a top tier backup, but absolutely 100% not a starter. These guys have  good TD-INT Ratios cause they are ridiculously conservative and YPA’s in the 6’s or 7.0, same thing.

I like Minshew, think he deserves a fair shot. The Jags don’t better themselves by having Foles/Gardner battle it out all summer - they need to have a guy and let him get a strong hold on the offense. Doesn’t help how bad that offense was around them, either. 

As for Minshew’s ceiling, I don’t think he’ll ever be an elite guy but I think he could end up being a 12-16 QB if things fall the right way.

The fumbles are scary. I think he’s a starter, but in the 15-20 range.

Thats arguably borderline starter quality, because there are always around 8 to 12 teams that don't have a true capable starter.   

Minshew deserves a shot, but at this point, I think he is closer to a younger version of Ryan Fitzpatrick than a franchise QB.

I'm not sure. I'd give him some more run in 2020. He wouldn't prevent me from drafting a franchise QB if he fell into my lap, though.

Just start Foles.  People want to forget that Minshew’s play was tailing off badly at the time Foles returned from injury.  Marrone should have been fired for benching Foles and putting Minshew back in to end the season.

Foles is the one the organization made the commitment to — at least for one more season.  If he resembles Blake Bortles next season, then the Jags can be in the QB market in 2021.  Minshew is JAG

The Jaguars will be in the NFL cellar within 2 years the way they’re running things there

How could they not bench Foles? He was playing poorly coming off the injury and if I remember it was following Minshew benching.

I don’t think so.  The first two games he started on his return he was 33/47 and 32/48, only threw one INT in the 2 games combined.  
 

He certainly wasn’t playing as poorly as Minshew was.  Either way, benching your franchise QB in his 4th game of the season should have resulted in job loss for the head coach.  No matter which of them starts next season, they won’t win more than 3-4 games with Marrone there

Nick Foles is terrible. I’m almost certain he won’t take another snap with the Jags.

As for Minshew, see what he’s got in 2020 and go from there. If he sucks, take a QB in 2021 Draft. You have the ammo to move up if you need to.

This off-season they need to surround him with more weapons. Chark is a WR1 but after that, there isn’t much there. 

Hopefully Gruden can get the most out of Minshew. We should see more play action under Gruden and Minshew thrived in that aspect in 2019. 
 

Jags need to move a move for a TE in FA and grab him some help at WR in the Draft.

He did a nice job padding his stats I guess. I’ll give him that.

A lot of people on this forum are quick to condemn Minshew. If he cleans up his interceptions by making better reads and gets some more help, he will be a solid QB.
