The legend of Gardner Minshew is going strong after three weeks. Jacksonville's sixth-round rookie QB is everywhere you look these days.

There have been plenty of comments made regarding Minshew's distinct look, particularly his mustache. People keep trying to pinpoint who he looks like.

Some have said he resembles 'Uncle Rico,' the iconic character from "Napoleon Dynamite." Both wear headbands, have mustaches and can throw footballs well.

'Uncle Rico' is actually actor Jon Gries, who has appeared in dozens of movies and television shows. Gries was in Jacksonville today and he actually visited Minshew at practice.

A picture of the two of them is going viral.

No indication that any footballs were thrown over any mountains before or after this picture was taken.

Minshew Mania is at a fever pitch right now, but we'll see if it can last over the long haul.
