    I believe the number of snaps he got were performance based. I just hope he gets used to proball and shows drastic improvement. I just think its long odds.

      Eli feeling pressure from Josh Freeman to keep his starting job would be like Jerry Vale feeling pressure from William Hung in a singing competition!
      Anything happens to Eli....the season is OVER no matter who the back up is.
      Painter couldn't fill in for Peyton and Freeman couldn't hit the side of a barn!

      John McKay, HC of the 1976 winless TB Buccaneers, when asked by a reporter, how McKay felt, about the execution of his offense.

        Freeman was good enough to take TB to the playoffs. Eli couldn't hit the side of a Barden!

          Historically, the Giants keep their draft picks for several years before letting them go. Nassib would really have to stink things up this offseason to lose his roster spot. Most likely he remains with the team.
          I agree in principle. If Nassib gets cut it's clearly a sign that he has fallen considerably far from his perceived value. I still never thought we should have gone up to get him in the first place.
