    "As a fan you see this pick and you say, they moved up to get a quarterback? That's stupid. And as a fan you're right. We're invested in the team emotionally (and financially to a point), but we're not providing for our families based on how well the Giants play. As a fan you're thinking if Eli Manning gets hurt for an extended period of time the season's lost anyway and we might as well get a high draft pick.

    But as a coach and general manager, and as scouts you're thought has to be that if the team takes a nose dive in any of these years I could lose my job -- just ask Bill Polian. Polian is one of the most decorated general managers in the league -- a guy who didn't have a losing season in a decade with the Colts. He lost Peyton Manning, had terrible backup quarterback play and is now working with ESPN. Having a backup quarterback can save seasons -- and jobs. It's important."

    I don't have a crystal ball to answer that question my friend but the fact is that Nassib is a kid full of talent, he is coming to a class organization and he is going to learn from a 2 time SB MVP. If he pans out and Eli ( knock on wood ) has a career ending injury the successor will be already on board. In another scenario he could be a great backup and spell the Giants cap numbers in signing vets for more money or he could be trade bait for the future or if he doesn't pan out you will only lose a 4 th round pick . Again the Giants are in a win-win situation if you take in count the value Nassib gave the Giants for a lousy 4th round pick.

    You are on the money.

    I think this kid is way better than those. and even J lo had potential. he just couldnt keep his weight in check.

    Lol. The best pick up that may never see the field in a regular season game.

    I wouldnt be so sure .

    “He was the number one player on our board at that time. We thought that if we were to lose him in that situation it wouldn’t be smart,” Coughlin said. “We felt very strongly about this young man. "

    "We think he can be a starter in this league,” Reese said. we really like Nassib. . . . We like his skill set."

    No of course not, but down the road you never know what happens , id say 2 years from now we will have a better picture. I dont know if the giants want a 20mil a year cap hit if the play is declining. of course If Eli plays like 2011 for the next few years (talking season play not sb wins) then you are right Nas may never see the field with us unless mop up duty

    With the way Eli plays he will be the same in two years at the old age of 33-34. He doesn't run much and protects himself well. Plus they are putting a new OL together for him. Careful what you wish for.
