Yep! We’re sending Gardner Minshew to another Eagles rival.

The New York Giants have gone from being a normally model franchise to being a laughingstock. They can’t get anything right, and honestly, that’s music to the ears of any Birds fan.

Their best player, Saquon Barkley, has seen his body break down quickly. Much of the reason for that is, ever since the G-Men shipped Odell Beckham Jr. off, he’s been the target of every defensive coordinator whose team has had the Giants on their upcoming schedule. Hey, it makes sense. It isn’t like the Giants have a quarterback that scares anyone.

The goal for anyone playing New York has been a simple one whenever Saquon has been in the lineup, load up to stop the run and dare the Giants to beat them by throwing the ball. Big Blue, more often than not, hasn’t been able to get it done. It’s for that reason that many believe this team will move off of Daniel Jones in 2022.

Drafting a quarterback is an option. Signing one is another. If trading for one is in the cards, there’s no reason why Gardner Minshew couldn’t be an option. He’s just as good as anything they’ve had recently

There’s also the Tony Sparano angle. In 2019 and 2020, his guys were charged with keeping Gardner Minshew upright as he served as the Jags’ offensive line coach for four seasons. If anyone knows what Minshew is capable of, it’s him. How much of a voice does he have with this new coaching regime?

If he’s in on the process of landing a signal-caller, it will be interesting to see if the Giants show any interest in Minshew. We’ll probably spend minimal time discussing his connection to Sparano if we do, but stay tuned. It’s going to be interesting to see if trade talks heat up once we move past the next scouting combine and into free agency.
