NFL Twitter had some wild reactions to Gardner Minshew trade

#Eagles dedicated 3.5 M to Joe Flacco so I wouldnt view the addition of Gardner Minshew as a brand-new leading backup to Jalen Hurts. Minshew (850k in 2021) is QB3. #QBFactory.

When it comes to what may happen if things go awry, Minshew and Flacco backing up Hurts likely provides new Eagles head coach Nick Sirianni some peace of mind. Injures has two clever quarterbacks to help his development as a starter, and having 3 beginning quarterbacks in its quarterback space definitely will not stir any local sports talk radio coals and produce wonderfully entertaining chaos this season.

Gardner Minshew, who produced a wave of Minshew Mania 2 years earlier, was traded to Philadelphia for a conditional sixth-round pick that could be as high as a fifth-rounder. The Jaguars, with Trevor Lawrence as their starter, viewed C.J. Beathard as the much better backup choice and plan suitable for whatever Urban Meyer is preparing up in Duval.
That suggested Minshew was expendable, and the Eagles surprisingly chose him up regardless of currently having a starter (Jalen Hurts) and a multimillion dollar backup (Joe Flacco).
The reactions to the trade ranged from fans in Philly questioning what precisely including Minshew to a crowded and costly quarterback space does, to observations about how the Jaguars might have currently bungled Trevor Lawrences early advancement by not making a Minshew move earlier.

Possibly the strangest part about the trade is the truth that the Eagles didnt need Minshew on the depth chart. He no doubt includes fantastic worth in the quarterback space, but Philly paid Joe Flacco $3.5 million this offseason to come in and support Hurts– a strategy that doesnt appear to be altering.

Im surprised the #Jaguars only got a conditional late choice for Gardner Minshew.
Has beginning experience, showed a propensity for huge plays. Has 38 total profession TDs to just 11 INTs.
Still two years of low-cost contract left. pic.twitter.com/ALu80ZudG0.

thoughts:.
the Jags were VERY DUMB to limit Trevor Lawrences reps in practice & & games to operate in time for a guy you were going to trade … for a 6th???
conditional 6th for Minshew is extremely low.
former Jags GM? hes now in Philly.
Minshew is much better than you believe.
