Syracuse QB Ryan Nassib: "It Has To Be My Team"

Through two games last season, Greg Paulus had thrown 33-57 for 272 yards, 2 TDs and 3 INTs. He would go one to have one of the most efficient seasons for a Syracuse QB ever.

Through two games this season, Ryan Nassib has thrown 34-62 for 431 yards, 3 TDs and 2 INTs.  That doesn't include the 78 yards and TD on the ground. Apples don't equal oranges (pun intended) but it's fair to say that Nassib is on the right track so far this season. And in his career.

Nassib spoke with ESPN's Brian Bennett about the season-to-date and he's happy about getting into a groove but realizes there's a long, long way to go. 

I think we're doing well. We're moving the ball well and having some good drives. We've hit some big plays but we've also missed some big ones that are still out there. We still haven't punched it in enough for touchdowns. I feel like we're settling too much for field goals and field goal attempts. But I think we're only going to get better as the season gets on. We have a lot of young kids and first-year starters, and the young kids will start making less and less mistakes, and the growing pains will get smaller and smaller.

Ryan says he thinks the Washington game taught him the Orange are good team on the verge of becoming something better.  And of course, he's not looking past the Maine Black Bears. Not one bit.
