    Player Poll: Rex Ryan Most Overrated Coach

    http://espn.go.com/new-york/nfl/stor...verrated-coach

    New York Jets coach Rex Ryan was voted the most overrated coach in the NFL, according to an anonymous midseason players poll conducted by Sporting News.

    Of the 103 players from 27 teams who were polled, 35 voted for Ryan. New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick finished second with 16 votes, while Philadelphia Eagles Andy Reid finished third with nine votes.

    "His coaching style is over the top," an AFC offensive player told Sporting News. "Some of the things he does in front of the cameras are way over the top. You put that with the New York media and he has a pretty big reputation, I guess.

    "I don't even know if you'd call him overrated anymore because it's gonna be a couple of years since he was in the AFC finals. He's pretty funny, and he's a pretty good coach. But not THAT good."

    Ryan, known for his bravado and failed Super Bowl guarantees, led the Jets to two consecutive AFC Championship Game berths in his first two seasons at the helm. But the team missed the playoffs in 2011, and is on pace to miss them again in 2012.

    Coming into the season, Ryan said he felt his team had a chance to be the best Jets team he's ever had since taking over the reins in 2009. But halfway into the season, the Jets are just 3-5, tied for last place in the AFC East Division with the Buffalo Bills.

    Players who participated in the poll were not allowed to vote for their own coach.

    Guess not every player in the league thinks so highly of Rex anymore and are dying to play for him.

    Belichick high on the list isn't even remotely surprising, he's got plenty of haters.

    It seems like the players voted for the coaches that get the most press

    1) Rex and his big mouth is #1
    2) Belly and the ever adoring media
    etc...

    Learn to read. The article said that of the 103 polled, 35 voted for Rex. Oh, and Belichick is the runner up.

    If you're going to troll, try gathering up information on what you're trolling about. You just look like an uninformed moron.

    BB was right behind him; that should tell you something about the prideful NFL players that don't like the man; record be damned. how can they be trusted?

    Unlike other HCs, Rex overrates himself so he should win the poll every time.

    No news here.

    Honestly, I think that's where most of the sentiment comes from. Players are just like fans, they watch ESPN and NFL Network (probably to see themselves, lol) when they get home, and when all they see is a 10-second clip of Rex calling himself the best this and that, the first thing that pops into their heads is probably, "damn, that guy is so overrated."

    he was also voted Head Coach that most players wanted to play for too. This means nothing. It really is a dumb story.

    Who wouldn't want to play for a HC who gives his players a 2-week vacation during bye week?

    Derek Jeter is also consistently voted the most overrated player in baseball. Players hate NY players/coaches because they get all the media attention.
