You're right, it isn't rocket science.
Rex is widely regarded as one of the brightest defensive minds in football and an easy guy to work with. Yet a ton of this fanbase thinks he's a major turnoff to potential GM's just because THEY are sick of Rex.
But that doesn't mean a candidate's interest won't wane after an initial
interview. I told you, it's a 2 way street. The candidate is looking to see if they're a fit with the franchise as well.
EDIT: as far as Rex goes. He might not be as respected around the league as everyone might think.
