Ryan Nassib’s first steps in the NFL were backwards.

The rookie quarterback played the fourth quarter and made his debut with 13:46 remaining in last night’s preseason game against the Steelers. But before he took his first snap the Giants had already jumped offsides (Stephen Goodin was flagged for a false start). When he finally did get the ball in his hands, he was dumped for a sack and...
