Felger and Mazz discuss a poll showing that Bill Belichick was voted 2nd as the most overrated head coach in the NFL.
We have Jermaine Wiggins so we'll start with the very first question. And that is is Bill Belichick overrated we ask this because the sporting news. Surveyed players across the league asked for the most overrated head coaches in the NFL number one clearly. With a bullet was Rex Ryan. Finally got surprises many people when you run your mouth like that promised Super Bowls and don't make it you get you I've got to pay for on the back end and so Rex Ryan does number one. But Bill Belichick was number two clear number two Rex Ryan had 35 votes Bill Belichick had sixteen. Andy Reid was third with nine Shanahan was fourth with eight Mike Tomlin was -- with four. So Bill Belichick clearly considered among players the second most overrated coach in the and a ultimately it'll start with you is that fair or not fair not. I don't agree with that I completely disagree with -- you're talking about a guy last year. Who took his team which is defense was ranked what 32 31 and in the NFL. And was one catch. Away from winning his fourth Super Bowl you don't got that they had taken a team back in 2007 to an undefeated was. You know we've we've talked about that one play of going. You don't have him undefeated season so when I when I think about Bill Belichick is being overrated no I don't think he's overeat I think you know. I think defensively as far as defensive coordinator he's lost some luster he's not the same guy and you know and that has to do what personnel which he picks the personnel so I think -- a lot of you know -- questions about it you could kind of poke holes into what type of of GM Izzy you know is is he the same defense coordinated well -- -- I think when you look at players they look at them. And you know he might not be a guy that's well liked among certain players that's on the question you know but I don't think -- -- hit it it really that's what did you think he loses the. Popularity cut -- a while I I wonder I wonder if that's a factor but don't you think that Rex Ryan generally would be popular among players. And he was number one on the list is such an easy target you know that whole team makes themselves such easy target I'll -- -- that. -- -- absolutely. Positively stunned. To see Bill Belichick number 21 -- left stunned borderline all. Like what are we talking about here you wanna tell me that certain guys are overrated will won a Super Bowl title. Brian Billick you wanna tell me he was overrated. Fine I mean giving it to the cap on now one to tell you -- Tommy John Bruton was overrated I'm like giving it a -- on that one but you've talked about a guy who has won three titles. I haven't -- over -- as the coach. I think that is asinine. Don't look if you want to think Belichick's teams have slipped in recent years defensively. Like Ricky just said. I don't think you can argue that the other way they slept. So that's thing you know that thing's been lost when we used to call Bill Belichick and offensive genius as soon as five years ago right -- consider whether that's. Defensive minds in football history really that's what he was tracking too. Nothing's gone I think so anyone can still considers and that miserable that's an overrated assessment right now it. Maybe he was always cracked up to be an outside the ball at least he can't make chicken salad out of chicken crap like we thought he could -- the players obviously but not. You struggle like everybody else a pro acting out the window defensive genius not. So that I -- if you would take over at that I think that's where you're at but that's the only part of it might help it and looked to me to get in that the more I mean when he's right so it's a GM yeah. I mean I don't think he's special when it comes to. Drafts I think he's good -- and I think he's above average but if you're Tommy is he one of the best drafters in the league I don't think he has -- one of the best but I but I. But I think if you said you know is he overrated as a GM or is he overrated as a defensive coordinator -- -- -- some question and get -- but when you say. Overrated as a head coach no no -- clearly we're talking about as a head coach okay and maybe I'm taking this too literally then there's the question is who's the most overrated head coach. So I look at it and say you're gonna put him on the list and if you put him. Following what I'm right up to look at and I'm not even cherry took on the list but so. It's. Asinine what I can't help but wonder what what political elements seem hindered us so that's a million times Mike look. I don't Belichick's been perfect -- recent years I think he's been far from that but it took over and over again ask me why I want to coach my team and I'm taken -- -- Every single time.
