    Actually Eli does not seem to be as affected by pressure as some other QB's. not hat he likes getting hit, but he has a way of staying healthy even when he does.

Secondly, he'll have a few years before the starting role is even a possibility for him and by then who knows how good or not good hell be. To say he's just a back up and thats all he'll ever be is in my opinion completely ignorant and unjustified.
      I know, he's great, unbelievable prospect, one of the best QB's ever to come out of the pro's...

      Taken in the 4th round by a team who doesn't need a starting QB, they needed a backup, they got one. I hope that if the time ever calls for it he can step in and play, but if he was good he would of been taken earlier. I understand why RB's got looked up and other skill positions you can find talent in the later rounds, but QB's get looked over constantly because it's not likely you'll win the big one without a great QB these days.

        point taken, but lets just at least be honest, Eli doesnt even execute a QB sneak. you guys ever wonder why he doesnt???

        • we gave up a 6th round pick for a highly rated prospect which we clearly rated highly as well. i really don't get these 'omg we don't need a QB' threads. eli is 32, not 25. carr sucks so bad we may as well have coughlin as the backup QB. this is a low risk high reward play with a very good chance of giving us a decent chance of winning if eli goes down anytime after this season.

          • You mean a guy drafted in the 4th round and was passed over by his own coach in favor of EJ Manuel isn't the next Joe Montana?

              Superhuman powers, primarily.

              Point is, no one likes being hit. Eli doesn't shy away from contact; if he contorts his body -- a natural response -- then it's mainly only to buy some more time, or try to evade the rush to make a play downfield.

              Eli is tough s.o.b.

                I agree.

                I'll be honest, though.....I'm probably harshing on him more than I should because I'm frustrated that Reese ignored linebacker.

                If Reese had taken a linebacker in the prior 3 rounds, I'd probably have the rose-colored glasses on myself about Nassib.

                But as I see it, the Giants used a 4th and a 6th to go after a position that didn't have anything close to the urgency of linebacker.

                I really hope the kid catches on, learns the system, and could step in a win games whenever he is called on.....I also hope that down the road, he'll either be Manning's replacement, or else have enough trade value to get more out of him than the Giants invested.

                But that doesn't help this 31st ranked defense.

                  • Turning your body away from contact is now a major flaw, yes let Eli take the hit straight on and get his ribs broken, lol. Some of the stuff people say are seriously just.... plain dumb.

                      why wouldnt a Giants fan want the kid to be good??? its odd right. Eli wont be around for 20 years, giants FO has to look toward the future and to make the team as strong as it can in case injuries. maybe he wont be better than eli, but to get all upset and say he will always sucks, to me shows that you are a fan of a player not the team .

                        Yes, because he's terrible at it. He gets absolutely zero leverage, and always positions himself to take a nasty shot.

                          Except for that weird little dance he did when he tried to make a last second audible. That was so goofy.

                            I don't agree with the pick, but right now there are a few posters who are really in love with Nassib and are starting to think he's Andrew Luck 2.0, I'm trying to get through that if he was really such a great prospect, as a QB he would be taken even earlier than he should of. His own coach didn't even want him, he used him as a smoke screen to grab another QB. He's a backup, I hope he'll be a good backup, but if he was starting material he would of been taken way earlier.

                            I agree, we needed depth at LBer, CB, S, and we take a QB. It didn't make sense to me then, still doesn't now.

                              I think its too early as well.
                              Because of all of the effort and examination being poured into these predictions, the draft is a robust market that, in the aggregate, does a good job of sorting prospects from top to bottom.1 Yet despite so many people trying to “beat the market,” no single actor can do it consistently. Abnormal returns are likely due to luck, not skill. But that hasn’t stopped NFL executives from behaving with the confidence of traders.

                                To speculate that a guy drafted in the 4th round, who was passed over by his own coach in favor of EJ Manuel, will be your future franchise QB before he even plays a down in the league is a bit pre-mature.
