Rex probably needs to go, but Tannenbaum built this debacle of an offense. more so than Rex, Tannenbaum is the guy who picked the talent, and the talent, unquestionably, isn't there. They are simply have the least amount offensive talent in the NFL. Bottom 5 in WR, bottom 10 in RB, bottom 5 at QB. That's on Tannenbaum. Not a single impact player drafted since 2008. He cannot be demoted, he simply needs to be fired.
Tanny is a cap/money guy not a football guy.
This is how is works in most nfl cities. At the end of each season
Rex (HC) and Bradway (director of football ops) get together and determine the team needs, and the best way to pursue each need either thru FA or the draft.
If Rex says that his offensive talent is sufficient to win 11 games if his defense can hold the opposition to 17 points a game and to do that he needs players X,Y and Z. If Bradway concurs they give the wish list to Tanny. They then set up the draft board and enter FA.
Tanny should be fired as he does not have competent people under him and the people that report to him are not up to snuff. But Tanny does not rank anyone he just figures out how much to pay them.
