Nassib is getting better every game

Nassib is getting better every game 


Through the first few weeks of training camp, all the media would talk about is how atrocious Ryan Nassib was. I wouldn't believe it and wanted to see him in preseason action and he's looked pretty good, especially lately. One could argue that he's looked better than Eli, although Eli is facing starting defensive talent and Nassib isn't. Still though, it offers a lot of hope for the future, especially since Nassib played in this style of offense in college. If he can be the heir apparent to Eli, that saves the Giants all the stress of looking for another quarterback in the next couple of seasons. We should be so lucky.

Good teams rely on their stars,
Great teams rely on each other.

Oh my god, Nassib has become must-see-tv whenever he gets in there.  Very impressive.  I can't wait to see how he does next week.  I'm someone who hated spending a pick on Nassib, but I hope I am proven wrong.

Something to think about: McAdoo's system seems to require an athletic QB, and this is why Aaron Rodgers was perfect for his system.  Nassib is very athletic.  But here's the thing: Eli isn't overly athletic.  I'm starting to think that Eli is not a great fit for McAdoo's system......

Wish the young lad well. He is showing the coaching staff that he can learn the pro game.

Re: Nassib is getting better every game 


The game was not televised in the Albany area, so I did not see except for highlights.
That said, it seems that Corey Washington didn't get on the field with the first team, and now will not since the next game is the scrub bowl. That is a shame,
Apparently, Harris did get some reps but is now injured, out several weeks.
Jernigan looks baffled to me.
I have to watch the replay on NFL nwk at some point.
To anyone who saw the game, what did you see from the young wideouts? I did see a Nassib to CW pass play on the local sports news this morning.

Re: Nassib is getting better every game 


dago, the replay on NFL Network is on right now, started at 10 a.m. I'm tivo'ing so I can watch it later.

Sage, if Eli struggles really bad to start the year, I really believe they'll consider inserting Nassib. The season will have to go south first before they do that as Coughlin will never pull the plug on a veteran that has helped win him two Super Bowls. That said, if the season appears lost and Eli is playing badly, I wouldn't be stunned to see Nassib in there. He represents the possibility of the next starting QB for the Giants and the more experience he gets the better.

So much for those camp reporters saying how awful he is. They made it sound like he was some guy off the street trying to make the team. (rolls eyes)

Good teams rely on their stars,
Great teams rely on each other.

Re: Nassib is getting better every game 


Damn,  Nassib looked fantastic last game. It was my first game of the preseason I was able to catch. He was very fluid, very athletic, made quick decisions, had complete command when he was out there, supremely accurate, amazingly quick delivery. I can go on and on and on. Nassib looked like the far superior QB out there. Eli has won us 2 SB's so he's going to ride the next 3-4 seasons on his laurels. It'll take an injury for Nassib to get a shot. It's just the reality of the situation.

Anyone else notice Eli's new ODD throwing mechanics? Now he's throwing off his back foot and he follows through with a forward pirouette? I just don't get it.........
Why can't he protect the ball? He's gotta stop putting it on the ground and throwing into double coverage.

Re: Nassib is getting better every game 


I'm not ready to put Eli "out to pasture" but the gap this preseason between he and Nassib has been extremely small.  

I don't know what to think of Eli.  He should be in his "prime", but boy has he has looked awful this preseason, all of last year, and a larger part of the 2012 season.  His decision making, accuracy, and mechanics are beyond head shaking.  People can talk about his 2 Super Bowls and what he has done for the organization, but the bottom line is, Eli's cap number is crushing this team.

At some point you have to focus on the "now" and what's best for the Giants organization going forward.  If Eli's play continues to be "erratic" at best, you have to seriously think about getting rid of him and his $17 million contract next season.  

IMHO as long as he is in Giant blue and isn't hurt, he will never be benched.

Edit:  Living in VA and seeing a lot of Redskins games, the same thing is going on with Washington.  Cousins has looked tons better this preseason the RG3.

Re: Nassib is getting better every game 


Will never happen. He could throw 28 picks this season and the Giants would continue paying him a huge sum and name him the starter. Ever since the 2 SB's, like Coughlin, Eli was handed the keys to the team and until he retires (3-4 years away), not much will change at the QB spot.

So, we just need to pray he improves. But, like yourself I'm pessimistic based on the past 2 seasons. We'll see...

Re: Nassib is getting better every game 


Maybe Gordon or someone else can speak more accurately of his contract, but Eli, as far as I know, is only under contract for this season and 2015. It is my belief that if he has another bad year that the Giants will decide to cut ties with a quarterback who is turning 34 and not played well in several seasons.

Re: Nassib is getting better every game 


Yes.....Eli is only under contract through next season.    


This was the first time Nassib looked like he could QB in the NFL.    This offensive system does seem to be one that is more comfortable for him.    It should be taken into account that Eli did not immediately step in and practice this offense in the offseason camp.    Nassib actually has more experience.   I think Eli is getting used to timing out his passes.    Here's a guy that was used to basically taking 7 step drops all of the time.........now he has to take many more 3 and 5 step drops and chuck the ball.    I don't think the adjustment happens overnight.     The pass Eli missed to Randle early on concerned me.    But I really liked the 2 minute offense drive to en the half.   I hope that serves as a catapult for Eli to get more comfortable.   


I wish TC would play the starters for a whole quarter in the last preseason game to get ore reps under their belt.......but I fear he will not and play uber conservative and let Curtis Painter and Mr. Gaskins play 3 quarters.    confused

Re: Nassib is getting better every game 


cutting Eli after this season saves 17.5mm in CAP and 18mm in actual 2015 compensation.  I doubt that will happen but I do think it is a real possibility that the Giants let Eli go after the 2015 season if 2015 is not a good season.

Eli has been terrible for a season and a half now.  so many people point to last year, but he was probably even worse that last half of 2012.  If he is bad again this year, then I do not see the Giants bringing him back unless it is at a reduced salary.  I hope that does not happen, and that he plays great, and we do not have to worry about playing Nassib.
