We all need to "pump the brakes" a little bit, and we need to remember that this was not a "knee jerk" hire as Herm (and presumably Marv and AP) interviewed 6 candidates. I am assuming that we hired Rodriguez partly because he fits what we want to do on defense. I am also hoping (assuming) that he is a fairly young and energetic coach who can contribute to our recruiting. Keep in mind that AP, and our other young recruiting coaches, still have the connections (and are building more connections) with the various high schools and kids. Rodriguez should be able to help close the deal with a DL recruit by saying "I coached in the NFL for 5 years, so I know how to help get you there." That is something Cain could not tell a recruit. Thus, I am cautiously optimistic about this hire.
