We do too... methinks we will see him more in the next contest.

He played better than G Grayson. Was it a fluke, IDK, but his standing in the pocket, delivering a well thrown pass when he got nailed earned a lot of respect.

Re: Backup Saints quarterback Ryan Nassib takes step forward in preseason opener, but he wanted more

When you are going into your 3rd season as coach Payton's pet QB project and a guy off the street outplays you...

It's only 1 preseason game, but from my perspective, I can't remember seeing Grayson play like Nassib played today. Sure it was 3rd and 4th stringers, but the decisiveness is there, the accuracy is there, the pocket awareness is there, the zip is there...

We definitely need to see more Nassib the next 3 games.

On a side note, if I am Cleveland, I start giving Kizer 1st team rep like nao!

3rd and 4th stringers, I was thinking the same thing but GG came in after Nassib took that viscous hit and looked just as confuse as he played earlier.

Looked to me like he had zip on ball. Grayson looked (to me) poised but made slow decisions and little zip. More like he was throwing calmly to someone across the yard without a defensive back guarding them.

It's time for Nassib to work with the 2's, head to head with Chase D. He's shown good read progression & knows when to break out when the pocket collapses. Not to mention he's tough.

No need to waste any more time with Grayson.

His poise and confidence looks way different in the pocket than GG. I honestly think this kid is worth keeping around and think he could be Drew's replacement, possibly. Still way early, but he has some skills and moxy

Saw some good stuff from both Kamara and Nassib. Time will tell in the next few preseason games.
