New York Daily News - [Full Article]

Giants backup QB Ryan Nassib’s career got off to a nightmarish start when he entered Saturday's game early in the fourth quarter. The rookie’s first drive featured a false start by one his offensive linemen, a sack, a delay-of-game penalty and then a bad snap (by tackle-turned-center Matt McCants) that went over Nassib’s head and was recovered by the Steelers for a touchdown. Then there was a hold on the next drive followed by another sack.

Nassib called it “first-game jitters” for the band of fourth-stringers he tried to lead three drives in the quarter, although he also added any NFL jitters were “unacceptable.” It was all definitely unacceptable for Coughlin, who admitted the fourth-round pick from Syracuse barely had a chance.
