Last night Rex had a passer rating of 112.7 and led the team to 31 first half points. He threw for 211 yards and 2 TDs in the first half. But, some people want to focus on his interception and botched snap. That is ridiculously unfair.
He has had a great camp. In the preseason, he has gone 30-41 (73%) for 320 yards. He has 2 INTs and 2 TDs. He had a solid outing his first preseason game. Made mistakes in his second preseason game, and then had a great outing last night.
As the season wears on and he gets more experience as the starter, the organization, the coaches, the players, and many Bears fans (including myself) believe that he won't make the same errors. That is what comes with experience. If he continues to make errors, then we will have something to talk about.
What I find objectionable from one particular Rex hater (A.K.A. JKD) is that one week he will seriously try to argue that Rex would have 10 turnovers in a game based on him throwing an INT, and having a fumble, and 2 botched snaps (that the Bears recovered) in the first 22 minutes of a game. But then, on a week where Rex is great, he will focus again on the negative. If he were truly objective and fair, I would have expected JKD to argue that Rex would have thrown 4 TD passes, led the Bears to 62 points, and had 400 plus yards passing if we projected out his first half stats. Of course, that was not offered.
I am surprised JKD didn't put up another foolish looking billboard about Rex on his website. Of course he is not a hater and is not just trying to pile on to Rex. JKD is just being objective. RIIIIIIGHT!
Bottom line - You just can't win with Rex haters.
