I think Rex deserves one more year. I've liked him since day one, but if next season is as sorry as this one, then he'll certainly be gone.
But I think people are overreacting as far as how "difficult" it will be to hire a GM with a coach already in place. With the right offensive coordinator for once and some smart player moves by our new GM, Rex could field a much improved squad next year with an optimistic future. We just need an offensive mastermind to take control of the offense, continue to let Rex work his magic on defense, and see where that takes us. If that fails, then find a new coach with a new plan.
