The poll, conducted by Sporting News at mid-season each year, asked 111 players for their opinion on all thinks NFL. Of those polled, 22 said they would least like to play for Coughlin, 21 for Sporano, 15 for New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick, and six said they would least like to play for Pete Carroll of the Seattle Seahawks.
“Coughlin is that old school, Bill Parcells, my way or the highway type,” Chicago Bears defensive tackle Anthony Adams told the magazine. “He won’t bend at all. That’s not the kind of coach you’d like to play for.”
