All this after stating during the off-season that he was going to become more involved with the offense, including attending meetings, because of his admission previously that he did not have the pulse of the team.
Assuming Manish's report is correct, of course.
Jordy, I thought the same thing when I read the report! And I didn't realize he'd said he would become more involved with the offense - that really seems to have been a lie. Unless by being more involved he meant finding an OC like Sparano and dumping it all in his lap.
I mentioned this elsewhere, but it bears repeating:
Why is Rex getting all the credit for the Defense instead of Pettine? If Rex has spent the past 4 years micromanaging the Defense instead of learning how to be a Head Coach, he really needs to be fired. Sounds to me like he inherited a good team in 2009-2010, and then shot it to h3ll and back.
