ESPN Grades The Giants' Coaching Staff

ESPN New York's Ohm Youngmisuk has been grading the New York Giants 2010 season position-by-position. Ohm recently looked at the coaching staff. That, of course, is always a hot-button topic -- especially since it seems the Giants are content to leave the staff intact -- so let's look at what Ohm had to say.

Here is his conclusion:

Coughlin deserves to return for another season as he still has command over the locker room. But he cannot afford to miss the postseason for a third straight season. The head coach said at the end of the season that he doesn’t plan on making any changes to his coaching staff.

Gilbride and quarterbacks coach
Mike Sullivan, who just finished his first season as QB coach after overseeing the wide receivers, will have to find a way to help Manning with the interceptions.

Defensively, Fewell has to limit the explosive plays and match up better against the more explosive offenses in the league after being overwhelmed by the Colts and Packers and melting down against the Eagles last season.

Quinn’s unit will be under the spotlight again next season as
Lawrence Tynes was pretty much the bright spot for the special teams.

We will, I'm sure, have a lot more discussion about the individual coaches throughout the offseason. I have had my say about many of these coaches at other times and I'm not going to completely re-hash it now. Let's leave it at this:

I am still surprised by the loyalty to Quinn and I really don't know enough about the job Sullivan does to judge him. Gilbride-haters can and will kill me for believing it, but KG is a good offensive coordinator. Fewell is a good defensive coordinator. There are better ones than Gilbride and Fewell, but there are also a lot of inferior ones, too.
