Is Minshew Mania dying a slow, painful death?
Gardner Minshew’s combination of facial hair and, um, on-head hair have been one of the NFL’s more fun things to see on the gridiron since he took the league by storm. Now, Minshew is almost unrecognizable.
In a video shared on Instagram, Minshew seems to have lopped off the mullet, opting instead for something a bit more cropped and befitting of a boring NFL quarterback. His trademark mustache has also, once again, transformed into a full beard.
Gardner Minshew’s mullet is gone, but what a run it had. We’ll always remember its beauty.

While Minshew hasn’t be shy to make changes to his salad in years past — his facial hair was a topic of discussion just about a year ago — so this is just the latest evolution in Minshew’s follicle fables.
While Minshew may have been head-and-shoulders above other Jags passers in recent years, Jacksonville drafted Trevor Lawrence No. 1 overall this year, meaning Minshew’s Jaguars tenure could soon come to a halt, depending on how the next few months play out.
Recent rumors suggest that the Jags would take a fifth- or sixth-round pick for Minshew.
Now, Lawrence is undoubtedly the QB1 in Jacksonville — at least when it comes to the hair depth chart.
