Ryan Fitzpatrick, Gardner Minshew trade facial hair barbs



Dolphins quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick may have found a hole in Jaguars counterpart Gardner Minshew‘s game.

His facial hair game, at least.

Via John Reid of the Florida Times-Union, the luxuriously bearded Fitzpatrick took a little shot at the young Jaguars quarterback.

“The mustache versus the beard, I think the beard is a cooler look,” Fitzpatrick said. “I think guys that grow mustaches a lot of times have patchy sides for their beards, so they just stick with the mustache.”

Minshew defended the honor of his style, while getting a shot of his own in.

“I’ll let mine speak for itself,” Minshew said. “But I think I’ve shown I can grow a beard with no patchy sides. I’m gonna have respect for my elders. Especially when they’re much, much elder.”
