New York Giants quarterback Ryan Nassib is the favorite to win the backup position behind Eli Manning, and he will be his worst enemy.
It's like running a race alone; it's hard to push through when there is no one upping the ante so to speak.
The 2013 fourth-round pick, Nassib will get the majority of second-team reps in training camp and his main competition will be Curtis Painter.
According to Jordan Raanan of NJ.com, the team usually carries two quarterbacks and he will need to win the backup job to avoid getting released.
'It's Nassib's job to lose. The Giants already know what they have in Painter. They must learn what they have with Nassib. He'll receive every opportunity possible to earn the backup job. Barring an awful preseason and training camp, the backup job behind Manning is his.'
