Jacksonville Jaguars star Abry Jones spoke to Sporting Life about the team's new quarterback sensation Gardner Minshew.
The Jaguars brought in Super Bowl winner Nick Foles as their new starting quarterback for the season, but he suffered a serious injury in the opening game of the season.

Step forward Minshew, who gained instant fans for his striking moustache as much as his talents as a quarterback, but it is his performances since then that have impressed.
Jones admits that Minshew's fellow team-mates were a bit unsure over what type of quarterback Minshew would be due to his image, but they've been instantly impressed.
"He's a solid guy," said Jones as he answered Sporting Life's questions on the team's Jags Jam show.
"I thought he was a party guy when I first saw the moustache – the first time I saw him I thought OK, classic
"That’s what I first thought, but he’s a guy that’s really locked in, he’s got a good arm, he’s got a good head on his shoulders and he can really play the quarterback position.
“The big thing for me and us as a team is that the playbook was not dumbed down when he came in. The coach put him in and told him to just go and play and he made his throws, he made his completions.
“For us to move forward you’ve got to have faith in the next man up and he’s showed he can do it.”
Jags Jam - Abry Jones
After Minshew led them to a comeback win over Denver, the Jags moved to 2-2 for the season ahead of their game against the Carolina Panthers on Sunday.
'The Minshew' is now a particular styling of moustache being sported by several Jacksonville Jaguars staff, while the team are also looking to cash in on Minshew mania by offering a special Minshew pack for the next two home games.
Minshew is not just a sideshow though, he ranks sixth in completion percentage and passer rating after his surprisingly efficient start to his NFL career.
He has the rock star looks and style though to be a huge hit in the NFL this season, and so far he's had the game to back it up.
