Rex Ryan voted most overrated NFL 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."

Can't believe they voted Bill second...only got them to the Super Bowl last year and again they're leading the division...bunch of haters.

2. Correct Answer IMO Is

Reid. How long can he coast on doing effectively nothing? I'm not a Rex Ryan fan either, though.

3. I'm With You On BB, Joey

How can a guy who's been to 5 SB's in a decade be overrated? And, with a different RB, different interior linemen, and different schemes based upon offensive personnel for each.

Now, Ryan i can buy. I can buy Reid, too.

4. I might even put Reid before Ryan...

At least the Jits were decent a few years back...the past 2 years the Eagles have been the most underperforming team in the league.
