So there is a chance that Todd or Sumlin will be available when we start looking?

If Todd is available, we need to look the other way. (Although Rice is his dream job)

Why is it the real nice guys like that always get screwed? /sarcasm off

The only saving grace if Graham gets the boot is that he will have to transition down in his career.

I am sure there are people here who would welcome a Return of the Toad, albeit with tighter controls and a bigger buyout.

Sumlin, though? do we want a guy who could not succeed with all those A++ QBs he had?

Or will we continue to look for the up and coming gem?

Would you *ever* advise a business who needs a long term stable partner to not just enter into a contractual relationship with an entity that had previously breached that contract, *and* subsequently breached every similar contract to climb the ladder?

Sorry, the core thread of Todd's being is wrapped up in that history. In context, the first time shame on you. The second, shame on me.

Prediction: Graham will be fired before Bailiff.

And, imo, that is an equally cringe-worthy (and likely) outcome.....

Just saying there are some who wouldn't mind having Todd back if the proper legal safeguards are in his contract.

No, i am not one of them. i didn't like him in 2006, even before he jumped ship. I didn't like him long before that.

Gosh, this is terrible news. Maybe we could hire him as a graduate assistant or something.
