    There was way too many times that Rex would not step up into the pocket when pressure came from the sides, he always seemed to bail out backwards or right into the pressure from the DEs.

    I simply think that he does not have the mental confidence to play football at the NFL level.

    1 thing to add to this, teams realized they could rush to a "spot" where Rex would be I heard D's after the game talking about that. Even if the pressure wasn't in the middle, it didn't matter b/c Rex's size limited his ability to find throwing lanes and see over his line, teams figured out he couldn't see the wr's, or if he could he couldn't see the LB's/DB's, in the flats(imo) and they easily started picking off his short and intermediate routes.

    He just had no composure in the pocket, and much like Cutler before this year, would start chucking the ball up for grabs when he was pressured, he just wasn't as talented. You saw the same problems in Houston when he got a shot to play, he was horrible, and the OL and RB and WR's were better.
