Rookie quarterback Ryan Nassib will be the second quarterback to play Thursday night vs. the New England Patriots, according to the plan laid out Tuesday by New York Giants' head coach Tom Coughlin.

Nassib, the rookie quarterback from Syracuse taken by the Giants in the fourth round of the 2013 NFL Draft, is just 3-of-10 for 77 yards in two preseason appearances. He has been sacked four times.

"My goals, going in…planning on executing, getting the ball out fast and trying to put some points on the board," Nassib said.

Nassib said Tuesday he believes he has improved since training camp began.

"I definitely think I’ve progressed as camp has gone on. Definitely got a better feel for the system and how to operate," Nassib said. "Definitely nowhere near perfect, still have room to improve but every day is a learning experience and every day you have to get better."

"They train in New Jersey, both of their facilities are in New Jersey on New Jersey property," Christie said as guest co-host on WFANS’s Boomer and Carton show this week. "They play in New Jersey every Sunday. There is nothing about New York with either one of these football teams. When a baseball team moves, should they still be called the old city’s name?"

"I would say I'm 100 percent, but you can't put a number on it," he told 980's Kevin Sheehan. "No one ever knows when they are 100 percent or what percentage they're playing at. The biggest thing is, I'm not below 100 percent."
