Syracuse’s Steve Ishmael is The Answer

Two years ago, Ryan Nassib, Marcus Sales, and Alec Lemon graduated from Syracuse.  The passing attack was left in shambles with no answer at quarterback and a load of inexperience at the receiver position.  That year, Nassib racked up 3,749 passing yards with 26 touchdowns.  Lemon had a 1,000 yard receiving year and Sales finished with 882 receiving yards.  Lemon had seven TDs...

New York Giants general manager Jerry Reese clearly shouldn’t have drafted Ryan Nassib

ESPN New York says quarterback Ryan Nassib must remain Eli Manning’s backup to stay employed with the Giants. The 24-year-old Nassib, who will compete with Curtis Painter and Josh Freeman, was bizarrely selected by Big Blue out of Syracuse with the 110th pick in April 2013. Shortly after acquiring the former Orange star, Giants general manager Jerry Reese publicly stated that he...

Peering into the Syracuse Crystal Ball: The Fizz’s Preseason Staff Predictions

Time for one of the time-honored traditions here on The Fizz: Preseason Staff Predictions.   D.A.: (6-6, 4-4 ACC) Loss in the Military Bowl to… whoever else plays in the Military Bowl.  Once upon a time (not so long ago) I didn’t have much faith in Ryan Nassib putting it all together.

Codeword Quarterback: Why Shafer Doesn’t Want to Name a Starter Until PSU
