The New York giants will be making their 2013 preseason when they travel to Pittsburgh to take on the Steelers. Head Coach Tom Coughlin said the Giants plan to use all four of the teams’ quarterbacks on Saturday. As it stands Eli Manning, David Carr, Ryan Nassib and Curtis Painter will all likely see action vs. the Steelers, butt he most intriguing one to watch will be Nassib.
“It’s a dream to be able to play in an NFL game, regardless of [whether] it’s preseason or regular season,” Nassib said prior to Thursday’s practice. “I’m excited, ready to get out there and play somebody else.
Really, my main emphasis to work on this weekend is to know what the game plan is, have that down and then, as we go on, continuing to improve.”
Nassib is currently No. 3 on the depth chart, behind Manning and Carr, and ahead of Curtis Painter. With Painter having been in the league for four years now, the giants will undoubtedly look to keep Nassib over him. the real question is whether the team believes Nassib can challenge Carr for the backup job. If he wins it, that will allow the Giants to cut the veteran Carr, same some cap space and have an extra roster spot.
