Rex Ryan responds to 'overrated' claim

11/7/2012

New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan always has a sense of humor. He even joked Wednesday about being named the most overrated coach in the NFL in a player poll by the Sporting News.

"Hey, I finally beat Bill Belichick at something,” Ryan said of his rival Patriots coach, who finished second in the poll. “I finally got him.”

As we explained in the AFC East blog on Tuesday, Ryan and Belichick being named the league’s two most overrated coaches is laughable.

This poll is filled with personal feelings and bias. Ryan is generally viewed as a loudmouth and Belichick is not very likable outside of Foxborough, Mass. Neither has anything to do with either coach’s X's and O's, which are very good.
