After the Sporting News released their poll yesterday that asked NFL players to rank the most overrated and underrated NFL Coaches, Rex Ryan was at the top of the overrated list. After hearing about the poll, today Ryan spoke to reporters.
In what seems like something you would see from the Onion instead of an NFL coach, Ryan said he glad to finally beat Belichick.
“My first thought was I looked and saw who was second. Hey, I finally beat Belichick. I got him. I knew it would take time, but I finally got him,” Ryan said, via Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News. “Like it hasn’t been a tough enough year. Nah, I wasn’t offended by it. At the end of the year, we’ll see who’s overrated.”
Ryan went on to say that he believes he would lead the poll of which coach players would most like to play for, adding Mike Tomlin to the top of that list as well.
It is nice to see that Ryan added a little humor to this poll.
