Not giving Rhodes a complete free pass, but he'd only been on the job for 11 days when Tillman pulled the trigger on the Ray deal. RLL did most of the damage to this organization the last 7 years, IMO. Sure Rhodes could have jumped in, but when you're brand new to the job, with no football experience, and you find out the GM that has been hired has literally been given full autonomy, it isn't as easy as you make it sound. I'm sure RLL told him this and to let Tillman do his job, as he'd got them into the Western final the year before.
