Coughlin voted Coach players least want to play for

Coughlin is the coach NFL players would least want to have

Tom Coughlin has won a Super Bowl, and he currently has the Giants in first place, but that doesn’t mean players on other NFL teams would want to play for him.

In a Sporting News poll of 111 NFL players, Coughlin came in first place, with 22 votes, on the question, “Which coach would you least like to play for?“

Bears defensive tackle Anthony Adams explained that most NFL players like a more flexible coach than the strong-willed Coughlin.

“Coughlin is that old school, Bill Parcells, my way or the highway type,” Adams said. “He won’t bend at all. That’s not the kind of coach you’d like to play for.”

Close on Coughlin’s heels was Dolphins coach Tony Sparano, who got 21 votes. Up next was Patriots coach Bill Belichick, who got 15 votes.

There was a big drop-off after the Big 3 of Coughlin, Sparano and Belichick: Seahawks coach Pete Carroll came in fourth with six votes, and Chiefs coach Todd Haley, 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh and Jets coach Rex Ryan got five votes apiece.

Lions coach Jim Schwartz got four votes, and no other coach got more than two.

All this proves is that 111 players value whining over winning.

Whatever works, personally I like Tom Coughlin's old school philosophy. He doesn't tolerate egos and I like that. He could be the last of a generation.
