Rex did not get Brett Farve. He had nothing to do with the Pennington years. History demanded that we win now. Rex was a breath of fresh air and took us to a few playoffs. He built us a defense that was very good by getting top FAs. Now the tradeoff is those play makers have aged and lost several steps exponentially.
We build a probowl OL but when Woody left th OL, Sanchez took a beating and has a lower back injury and shoulder problems. It took too long to get Wayne Hunter replaced. Sanchez became a clutz and skittish as a result.
Is this all on Rex ? I see the time to make some tweaks but we can't tweak properly because of players favorable contracts. Cap hell they call it.
I want Rex to stay and I want his above average D. Next year is a let's see what happens year. Maybe we keep or sign key players based on next year.
