Nassib on Buffalo: “A match made in heaven”

Posted by johnmurphyshow on January 22, 2013 – 2:19 pm


Syracuse QB Ryan Nassib is finding the question unavoidable in the first few days of Senior Bowl workouts in Mobile. How would he feel about playing for the Buffalo Bills? Doesn’t it make sense for the Bills to draft him?

After Tuesday morning’s workout the North team at Ladd-Peebles Stadium in Mobile, Nassib had a ready answer.

“It would be a match made in heaven,” he told reporters.

Nassib’s Head Coach at Syracuse Doug Marrone is now the Bills head man. And Marrone brought along Offensive Coordinator Nathaniel Hackett and several other Orange coaches for his new Bills staff. So in classic connect-the-dots mode, most observers make the connection between the talented Syracuse quarterback and a potential landing spot in Orchard Park.

Nassib says that would work for him.

“That would be a great situation, I love the city of Buffalo,” he said Tuesday morning. “I’m a Central New York guy, that type of weather, and going to Buffalo with all those Syracuse guys there, that would be a match made in heaven.”

Nassib is one of three quarterbacks on the North roster this week, splitting time with North Carolina State’s Mike Glennon and Miami of Ohio’s Zac Dysert. The three have been rotating through the reps through the first two days of practice.

Playing for the Bills would be “a great situation for me” Nassib told The John Murphy Show. And we asked what would make it so great.

“Just like anybody would like to be with the coach that they’ve been with for the last three years,” he answered. “That’s just definitely an advantage, instead of building a relationship with somebody new. You already have a relationship with somebody else. But that’s a rare situation, that usually doesn’t happen. It’s just kinda like a special circumstance.”

We’ll have more with Syracuse QB Ryan Nassib, along with Head Coach Doug Marrone and Bills GM Buddy Nix will be live, when we broadcast The John Murphy Show from the Senior Bowl tonight. The show airs from 7pm-9pm on the flagship station of the Bills, WGR Sports Radio 550.
