Honestly, there's no real regular season evidence to support my comfort level with Carr. I fully admit that. It's just a gut feeling. I've seen him in preseason look good, and he's been around here long enough to know the offense inside and out. At the very least he could run the plays and make the calls. I don't want him starting for an extended period of time, but for a short run I'd be ok with it.
Nassib is just an unknown in my opinion. I didn't have him as highly rated as some others. This is different from the Aaron Rodgers situation for 2 reasons. One, even though it was just a couple of years, Favre was older and already showing some signs of decline. Eli is right smack in the middle of his prime nad has never been seriously hurt. By the time Nassib's contract comes up, he very likely won't have played a single snap for the Giants.
Secondly, Aaron Rodgers was a consensus First round pick. He was touted by many to be worth the No. 1 overall pick. I know there were rumors the Bills were going to take Nassib in the 1st, but it didn't seem like anybody else had him rated as a 1st round pick. And just from my own personal unscientific and mostly uneducated rating I had him as a 4th rounder which is why I feel the way that I do about the decision to move up and grab him.
