This season Jaguars Rookie QB Gardner Minshew won the Pepsi Rookie of the Week award 7 times - most recently Week 17 in the Jaguars home win vs the Colts. Despite winning the Rookie of the Week award 7 times while no one else won it more than once, he is not even a nominee for the Pepsi Rookie of the Year Award. The Jaguars official Twitter page will not stand for it! They went on an all out twitter rant on the subject, normally I don't throw more than one or at most two tweets in one of these blogs, but that simply would not do this rant justice.
Really though, why is he not at least on the ballot? The story of the 2019 NFL season can not be told without mentioning Minshew Mania. The Nominees include: DE NIck Bosa, WR AJ Brown, RB Josh Jacobs, QB Kyler Murray, and RB Miles Sanders; even though at the bottom of that same screen you can see Minshew's face 7 times for the weekly winner of the award while no one else appears more than once. Seth Harp from Harp on Sports weighed in on this topic when the Nominees were listed.
