Should we secure Ed Dodds?

Recommended Posts

https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2019/06/14/report-nick-caserio-has-a-contractual-provision-that-keeps-him-from-leaving-new-england/

 

With New England prohibiting Caserio from interviewing with other teams for GM jobs, could Ballard possibly do this for Dodds and also give him a pay raise so he is more than fairly compensated to stay in Indy? He is a vital part to our scouting and front office team.

They could. If he wants to be a GM though that probably wouldn’t stop him.  I saw a report awhile back that mentioned he might not want to be a GM.

He wants to be heavily involved in the scouting and the GM responsibilities would take away from that. I think it's fair to say he is currently in his dream job. Ballard most likely gives him free reign to do what he does, or else, why would he have left Seattle?

Maybe he wanted to get out of the rain.

If that's the case, he should have gone to Phoenix or Los Angeles.  We get plenty of rain here in Indy.  Maybe not as much as Seattle, but way more than we need.

Even if that is the case, we would have heard if Dobbs declined to interview for the job. Could also be teams just arent interested. Its hard to separate success from the top dogs.

According to Houston whispers, the Texans won't pursue a new candidate this year. O'Brien will be the GM for 2019. If that's true, I think Caserio will end up in there .... just not in 2019. (His contract will expire next year in Boston.)

He's already secured and under contract. If they want to go further, they can offer him an extension with terms similar to whatever Caserio's contract with the Pats says. I'm not a big fan of that, though. If someone wants to pursue other opportunities, they should.

While under his current contract he can only leave if it's specifically for a GM position.

 

Having said that, we should absolutely try to retain Hogan and Dodds for as long as we possibly can.

Which is true only if his team under contract allows him to interview for GM position.

The Crow is an excellent movie and I still can't figure out how they

finished the movie when Brandon Lee got shot and killed "for real"

on the set midway through filming. I just rewatched it a few weeks ago.

The special effects don't hold up, but the story certainly does. Excellent movie! 

 

And that soundtrack....... :heart:

It helps that movies are not filmed in order they are seen. But what helped the most was the lighting budget for the movie consisted of a couple light bulbs and the character wore the same costume that consisted of a long jacket, long hair, and face paint, which would have allowed a similar looking person to stand in as well as use close up shots from other unused scenes that would have wound up on the cutting room floor otherwise (I believe fast and furious used a cut Paul Walker scene from an earlier movie after his death).

 

I'm was more surprised to find out Lee's stunt double was the director of John Wick.

    • I don't think Luck is netting anywhere near that type of return...just too much uncertainty at this point.
    • I don't know...he does have a surgically-repaired throwing arm...and he's going to be 31. So I don't think it's crazy to take a few QBs over Luck under those circumstances...especially ones that are more than half a decade younger.    And he did leave...so that has to be part of the consideration now unfortunately.             
    • https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2020/08/04/opt-out-stipend-must-be-repaid-even-if-player-is-cut-in-2021/   The league’s position is that the money, if the player takes the base level $150,000 stipend, is owed to the team in 2021, if the player doesn’t make the team. “Yes,” NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy told PFT regarding whether the money would be owed by a 2020 opt out who is cut after he returns in 2021. “It’s a salary advance.”   For players who opt out without the higher-risk designation and fail to make the team in 2021, the question then becomes whether the team will enforce the debt. Some teams may, some may not. It could become a P.R. problem for a team to chase a player around for reimbursement, when the team simply could have given the player a roster spot and allowed him to earn the money that he already had been paid. Indeed, for some teams, the undrafted rookie who opts out at the $150,000 level this year could end up being more likely to earn a bottom-of-roster position in 2021, since that’s the only way the team can get its money back without getting its hands dirty.     So it appears it is owed back, whether a team elects to try and recover funds seems to be up in the air.
    • I would take mahomes, or peyton over andrew. But thats where it stops. Brady over luck? How laughable. 
    • I read a couple articles earlier. It just stated it is taken off of 2021 salary. I would think they would want the money back either way? Guess it's not conclusive, that's how I read it.   Will check and see what else I find.
