Stop. We did get to 2 AFCCG because he was a good coach who got his team to rally behind him. The Ground and pound worked wonderfully and that was all rex's philosophy, NOT SCHOTTYS.
Second, when would you have liked to bench Mark? After last year? And who is he going to put in, Tebow? McElroy? No, Mark is still the best option out of the 3 of them but the future QB of this team lies elsewhere, so Rex is damned if he does and damned if he doesn't in terms of who he puts in at QB.
