I would have no problem with Herm as head coach IF:
1) He had a good offensive coordinator to whom he gave complete control over play calling and game planning.
2) He had a game day assistant that could keep him from making those 'risk aversion' decisions.
Seeing as these two things are highly unlikely to ever happen, I'm content to let Herm have another year or even two to get us the players we need for a real coach to take this team to the next level.
