I dont know, maybe it was the promise that he showed. The excitement that we had a QB, and then kept getting injured. I didnt like him then, and then he played well, and I said to myself "well it was worth the wait", but then he started playing so inconsistantly. Yes we went to the super bowl, but it wasnt on his arm. And then there was this season, where Rex was supposed to take the next step, and he was still utterly inconsistant. I would rather have a QB that will be consistant that will manage the games well than a midget that can not throw a screen pass, and will lose us games. And then there was the whole "he is a rookie". That was a load of BS. He had been in the NFL for I think 3 years (excuse me if its 4), thats 3-4 years that he could have just been mentally getting ready watching tape, doing everything that he could. So I didnt give him that excuse that everyone else was so ready to give him.
So for me, its the false advertising. Its the getting our hopes up. Its the fans who love rex no matter what, and give as many excuses as they can to make him look better than what he is. He is a mediocre QB that has a deep ball that will work every once and a while.
But as I said, I hope he does well.
