Two quarterbacks known for their eccentric personalities and unique facial hair are set to square off on Thursday Night, and they’re already providing a bit of “bulletin-board material” for one another.
Gardner Minshew and Ryan Fitzpatrick have already exchanged words ahead of the game, but it’s not like they’re taking shots at one another’s skill set or body of work. No, instead, the topic of discussion has been about their facial hair.
Fitzpatrick got it going with this mustache zinger.
Fitz just dunked on Minshew Mania: “The mustaches versus the beard…I think the beard is cooler. Guys that grow mustaches have patchy sides.” pic.twitter.com/b2iLbuGJb9— Josh Tolentino (@JCTSports) September 22, 2020
But Minshew fired right back, essentially defending his mustache choice, and also calling Fitzpatrick old in the process.
