It's just that we almost never saw the guy. When Rex was first hired, we heard that he, Pettine and Thurman would brain storm before calling plays together. But little-by-little, we stopped getting this information. Right or wrong, Rex seemed to take the lion's share of the grieg/glory for the defense.
I saw Pettine at least 2x in the heat of the sideline inferno....
Once he was 2-3 feet behind Rex and i clearly saw him mouth "Good Call Rex" as Rex sent in the defensive call....
The second time, he was again standing behind rex, and caught the corner of the clipboard to the forehead as rex threw up his hands in dissapointment during the New England "game".
