Meet public enemy No. 1: Greg Schiano

By Jay Skurski

As part of The Sporting News' annual midseason players poll, one of the questions posed to players was "Which coach would you least like to play for?"

The winner, if you can call him that, was Tampa Bay's Greg Schiano.

Here's what the rookie coach had to say when asked about the poll by the Tampa Bay Times.

"Sixty-one guys. That's the only ones I care (about), the ones back in that locker room," Schiano said. "Now if they voted? We're going to ship them off to Buffalo or something."

In case you're wondering, Bills coach Chan Gailey got three votes in the poll, while Schiano got 20. New England's Bill Belichick was second with 19 (which makes no sense).

Sporting News' network of NFL correspondents polled 103 players from 27 teams. Players were not allowed to select their team or teammates for their answers.
