Graham Turner took full responsibility after Shrewsbury's 3-0 defeat to Rotherham ended with his players being booed off the pitch.
The Shrews slumped to a sixth straight home defeat and the Millers tore in to a home side clearly low on confidence with all three goals coming inside the opening 20 minutes to pile the misery on Turner.
Turner has now seen his side go more than eight hours without hitting the net at the Greenhous Meadow.
Striker Tom Hitchcock, on loan from QPR, headed the opener in the ninth minute before Ben Pringle and James Tavernier also weighed in for the merry Millers.
It all made for painful viewing for Turner, who said: "As manager you take full responsibility for what goes on on the pitch.
"I take full responsibility for what's happened again. There's no hiding place, there's no getting away from the fact that we've capitulated.
"The longer you go without a victory, the longer you see 20 minutes of that sort of football, the more the pressure rises.
"We've got to make sure that this club is a first division club next season and that's got to be the objective of everybody."
Turner added: "I've never been anything but confident that I can manage a team in the Football League. We'll have to see what the next few days and few weeks bring."
Tom Eaves hit the inside of a post for Shrewsbury, but it was a rare threat from Turner's side, who had no answer to rampant Rotherham.
