Former Giants Coach Mike Sullivan Receives High Praise

Mike Sullivan, who served as the New York Giants quarterback coach during 2010 and 2011 and coached the team's receivers from 2006 to 2009, was recently hired as the Tampa Bay Bucaneers Offensive Coordinator. Giants offensive coordinator, Kevin Gilbride, gave Sullivan some credit for Eli Manning's career year:

"I don't know if he's gotten any credit but ... he's certainly been a catalyst in the good year Eli's had," offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride said last month.

Giants backup quarterback, David Carr, also had an endorsement for Sullivan.

Manning also threw much better while moving in the pocket and on the run, which backup quarterback David Carr attributed to Sullivan's unconventional drills.

"He has some different drills where it's uncomfortable movements," Carr said of Sullivan last month. "You're not just dropping back, moving to the left and right, stepping up and throwing the ball, which never happens in the game.
