So how excited are we about Rodgers?
Very. He's called defenses in the NFL and worked under one of the game's best defensive minds. Always a chance he doesn't adapt well to the college game, but coming the week after the Super Bowl when his unit was the story of the game, it would be a huge credibility hire for this program.

I’d be ecstatic for Kacy Rodgers. Guy is an elite defensive line coach and has been a play caller in the NFL before, plus he’s a VFL as an added bonus. While he has been out of college for a long time, I’m sure if we fill position coaches with recruiters, we’ll be fine. He has an easy resume to sell to kids, especially defensive linemen.

I also love his background of coaches he’s been under to “influence” his defensive style:

Bill Parcells
Todd Bowles
Wade Phillips
Mike Zimmer

Even middling guys like Dave Wommack, Brian Stewart, Kevin Coyle aren’t terrible guys to learn from.

The first four on that list were/are considered the best defensive minds in the NFL at some point in their careers.
Think it’d be a very good hire by us if we can pull it off.

Not sure about his ability to design and implement a defense. But man that rotisserie chicken was good!
And, unlike our last coach, he knew that you don't count your money when you're sittin' at the table. And, he knew when to run.
All around better.

If Henry T goes to Bama I will officially embrace the nickname Toot, which I have hated for a long time. He will have earned it.
If he really does transfer to Bama, I believe it has Pruitt written all over it. I'm sure he would love nothing more than to help Saban get our best defensive player.

**** him if he goes there...I hope he rots if he goes there. I hate everything about the Alabama football program.

I agree.

It should be a good hire (one would think) from an X's and O's standpoint.
It could be a good hire (again, one would think) from a recruiting standpoint.
It would be a really big hire, without a doubt, from a credibility standpoint.

Again, as always, this is just my opinion.
