Rex hasn't even come close to that magnitude of failure.
I just can't fathom it being done.
Carrol got fired from the pats after going 8-8, Marty was fired after going 14-2.
The record matters less than the direction the team is going. I don't think he gets fired this year, the new GM would not want to stradle the new guy of his choice with this team after this offseason. He will let Rex take it down one more notch and then bring in his guy.
He will make a big show about giving Rex a new shot, but the gun won't be loaded.
