I hope McNair has a huge bonus plan to keep him in Houston. Wade is under contract thru 2013 but can leave for H.C. position. If he goes, I am not sure if we have his replacement in house.

But I doubt that will happen. I can't see how he won't be an HC somewhere next year and I don't know if we can replace him.
These statements dance around the key point. Whether he retires or moves on to one more shot as a head coach, the bottom line is one day - hopefully in the far future - we'll lose him.
The key point IMHO is:
Are we grooming his successor? If so, then who is he?
