Seems like the best case scenario for Nassib is not a good scenario for Eli Manning.
As much as I dogged the pick, though, if Eli goes down for a couple games, and Nassib plays well enough to win, then all of a sudden Reese looks like a genius for spendnig a 4th and 6th to rescue our season.....and Nassib becomes the next Matt Flynn, which translates to some serious trade bait.
Still though, if Nassib goes the Aaron Rodgers route, he's on the bench 3 years....and Eli is 35. He might become a great QB, but the Manning genes would suggest it's for another team.
NE picked Ryan Mallet in the 3rd in 2011. good teams do this fellas.
That will also happen to Nassib if he doesn't get a shot to start down the road.
This notion that we will trade Nassib for value is highly unlikely.
He was drafted to be a back up QB and "possibly" the heir apparent down the road.
1. He develops into a legit QB
2. He doesn't get a chance to play with us.
Contracts are shorter for 4th round picks.
For the record.....GB didn't take Favre back because they knew that if they did, they would lose Rodgers the next year when his contract was up.
If it can happen to Favre, (the most beloved Packer in history) does anyone really think it can't happen to Eli.
