I always enjoyed watching Rex play. Was totally screwed by the Bengals and Marvin X, kept around almost solely as a WSTD until finally getting a chance to run the ball at the very end of his fourth season. Then he became a key cog on the Patriots and might have even been a starter for a couple years if he could have avoided the minor injuries that regularly afflicted him. He was an average sized running back in a league that eliminated average sized White RBs 40 years ago, so will always appreciate Rex's stick-to-itness and the nice career he ended up having.
