Maybe I can be convinced that Rex may be able to lobby for this defensive player pick or that defensive player pick but never on the offensive side of the ball IMO. I just do not think he has the interest. Also, and even then, any decision to defer to a HC still rests with the GM. So any responsibility for the pick is always and forever 99.999% with Mike Tannenbaum even if you buy the idea that Rex was lobbying for Mark Sanchez which I absolutely do not.
Fair enough 31, and Wrecks was too new at that point in time to make any waves.
