New York Jets coach Rex Ryan may be the head coach of a third-place team but, when it comes to being numero uno in one area, an NFL players poll says Ryan is tops at being the most overrated coach in the league.
Finally, Ryan gets to be ranked ahead of Bill Belichick in something.
The Sporting News polled 103 players from 27 teams, with players not permitted to name their own coaches. Sorry Tim Tebow.
Ryan was named on 35 ballots as the league's most overrated coach surpassing Belichick's 16 votes for second place. They were followed by Philadelphia Eagles coach Andy Reid with nine votes and the Washington Redskins' Mike Shanahan with eight.
"His coaching style is over the top," an unnamed AFC player said of Sexy Rexy. "Some of the things he does in front of the cameras are way over the top. You must put that with the New York media and he has a pretty big reputation, I guess."
The anonymous player suggested that Ryan's recent record might even make the coach's new title irrelevant.
"I don't even know if you'd call him overrated anymore because it's going to 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."
BEST OF MAXIM
