There is so much to talk about with Jacksonville Jaguars QB Gardner Minshew, from the shock at the fact that a sixth-round pick is suddenly the toast of the NFL to his father to all those memes that sprouted on Thursday.
And then there’s that mustache. Oh my goodness, that ‘stache.
It’s glorious. And there’s been so much attention paid to it that he’s fielded questions about his facial hair and his team’s owner has talked about it.
First, let’s talk about how it showed up on his face. Back at Washington State, it was the subject of an ESPN feature:
“It’s just kind of symbolic of how we are as a team, just free, loose, we’re going to play as hard as we can, but we’re gonna have fun doing it.”
Here’s a quote from Jags owner and fellow mustache enthusiast Shahid Khan:
Here he is talking about it after Thursday’s win:
He revealed it started in camp at Washington State with his teammates and that everyone “quit on (him),” so he said, “Screw y’all, I’m doing this longer than everybody.”
The Minshew Mustache is legendary.
