The survey didn’t stop there.  The Bears also have the fifth-most-complaining quarterback in Nick Foles. Coach Matt Nagy ranks No. 4 among complaining coaches. The team is well represented, to say the least.  However, the Bears have nothing on the New England Patriots, the biggest whiners in all of football. The fans rank No. 2, their coach Bill Belichick ranks No. 1 and their ex-quarterback (Tom Brady) and current QB Cam Newton rank No. 1 and No. 2, the survey found.
