Minshew, who filled in admirably in Foles' absence, was 4-4 as a starter and garnered Rookie of the Week awards on six of the nine weeks he was on the field this season.
Because the Jaguars are at present savoring their bye week, Marrone resolved to make a likelihood at quarterback.
Foles, the club's $88 million franchise quarterback, has been out the last eight games with a broken collarbone and hasn't played since going down in the the first half of the season opener against the Kansas City Chiefs. Minshew replaced him and went 4-4 as the starter, throwing for 2,285 yards, with 13 touchdowns and four interceptions. He leads the National Football League with 11 fumbles and is second with seven lost fumbles. As expected, Doug Marrone told the media that experience was a key factor in the decision, but also added that the work the Jags put in with Foles earlier in the offseason was a vital part of the decision, too.

Former Manchester United coach linked with Bayern job
It was a good time. "I with the club and the team all the very best". Kovac's assistant Hansi Flick has been named interim coach. We all regret this development.
His attitude, attire (jorts, headband, aviators) and mustache - coupled with his freewheeling style of play - led to Minshew Mania erupting.
"Nick will be our starting quarterback going forward", Marrone said Tuesday. The rookie was picked off twice and sacked three times in a 26-3 loss against the Houston Texans this past Sunday.
"He's done a great job", Marrone said of Minshew, according to MMQB's Albert Breer. "I think emotions can run differently, so I looked at the body of work". "I feel a whole different about him now than I did prior to him playing, in a very positive way". "We felt like we did the best job to make sure that he was in position to be ready once he was healthy".
