Basically taking the same role as Ed Dodds with the Jets.

And he'll be a GM soon. 

 

Hopefully Dodds is true to form and loves the role he's in. Would be nice to keep him for the longterm.

I think so. He's said that he doesn't like the responsibilities of being a GM. There's no huge upgrade for him, and it's not like the Colts have terrible ownership/FO, so I could see him staying for a while, unless he changes him mind about becoming a GM.

Good for Rex. He appears highly respected throughout the league.

 

It's always one thing for someone to assemble a strong staff (whether it be personnel or coaching) to start with but the question always comes down can they maintain a strong staff? Time will tell how well Ballard does this.

No disrespect to Mr. Hogan, but one door closed means another one opened.

 

Do you promote from within the Colts or do you post this job and hire the best from outside?

Yes, Good addition (Hogan as asst. GM) for the Jets.

Joe Douglas is on his way to building a good front office.  He has (or is) also expected to hire Chad Alexander of the Ravens and Phil Savage

 

In a demonstration of ties and loyalty in the NFL, Savage was director of College Scouting and then Director of Player Personnel in the early 2000's with the Ravens when Joe Douglas was hired on as a scout. Now Joe hires him (or supposedly soon will) for his staff.

Time will tell, but he's done well so far and I'm not losing sleep over it.

What's nice about getting your staff poached? Unless he was no good or the Colts have a better man, I don't like it.

Agreed. This just takes away one of our better scouts. Hurts us, and helps the Jets. Now we have to replace Hogan with someone of equal value (which is hard to do), and have him learn and buy in to Ballard's philosophies. I don't know Rex Hogan personally, so it's hard for me to get excited for his promotion at the expense of the Colts.

I'm just surprised the Jets did something right.

 

I know, right?

 

First it was Dorsey w/Browns and Eliot Wolf.  Now it's Douglas w/Jets and Hogan, Alexander, and Savage.  It's like these teams are now actually trying (to be relevant!)   ;)

It's just a reality though.  If people are good at what they do there will be opportunities to move up.  So another function of upper management is to always be developing talent and scouting for talent - not just players but every function of the organization.

 

I used to work for a very large company (100,000 + employees) that the expectation was you should be looking for a new position every 2 years.  If you stayed in the same job over 3 years you were looked at with suspicion of being a loser.

I am sure ballard already has someone on his staff he will promote. If I remember right he mentioned how he always has a list of people ready to promote when someone leaves.

Large corporations are where everyone advances to their level of incompetence!  haha

I can root for most past colts moving to other teams but to the Jets i cannot.  I do hope he fails there only to succeed elsewhere.

That's just stupid. Maybe an employee likes his position does a great job and doesn't want to change locations. He is a loser really?????

I go the other way on this.  I think it is an outstanding representation of the quality culture and organization that Indy has and is developing.  I think you want people to be in demand.  People in and outside of the building notice that there is a path forward, even if it means leaving the Colts.  I also think it reflects well on the pipeline that Ballard believes he has internally.

I agree with this. There's nothing wrong with the Jets besides being from NY, and SB III, which 90% of us weren't alive for or have little memory of anyway.

Like us getting Ballard from KC? Polian from the Panthers? 

 

If no one is trying to get your staff, your not very good. BTW, I said "eyeing".... you said "poached".

Jets should be a very good team in a couple years.

Because of this culture the first thought for many people when a new project or role within the job came along was "how will this hurt/help my career?"

 

Very large high tech company.

    • Not with JB at QB.  Averaging 150 yrds a game...yea, I wouldn't want to either.  The narrative of him being an MVP candidate was always ludicrous, and the only people that really believe that are those that want live in a fantasy and not reality.  The WRs out there won't buy it.  
    • What's the point of bringing anybody over. You draft a rookie WR, they get hurt, RBs, so does defense. This is a M.A.S.H. unit. Bring in durable players.
    • I honestly think this is a 50/50 share of blame. JB isn’t going to be confused for Manning but he isn’t Ryan Leaf either. I’m not even sure who his comparable is at this point because I can’t say I recall watching another QB like this. Saying that, what coordinator is incapable of building schemes to fit their players? A really good one will adapt to what they have and this team has seen JB play enough by now to know what they have. Lack of PA pass while murdering the opposition with the run is mind boggling. Not throwing to Doyle over the short to medium range in the middle of the field was also mind boggling. Trusting that your QB is finally going to connect on a deep pass when your game is on the line near the end is just stupid when he hasn’t shown he can do it all game long. Coaching decisions are borderline terminating type offenses in this league. I just can’t understand their logic this year.  I have highlighted an area that feels spot on about JB and I agree with most everything you put in here. Nice post.    the one thing we may differ in is if we can agree that JB is just what he looks like at this point and his ceiling isn’t much above what we are seeing, I’d really like to just take a look at Kelly during live fire and see what, if anything at all, we have with him. You would think at the VERY LEAST, Kelly could sink and dunk equally as well as JB has with the ability to go vertical. Even if you pull the risky vertical away from Kelly and just say dunk and dunk, he gives you the speed from his feet. The possible plus side if you say go play your game, is he able to throw a guy open and can he do that safely enough without being too high risk with the ball?    im not advocating that Kelly is the answer or anything remotely like that, I’m at the point though that I feel this team is stuck in the mid with JB and we don’t go far with him, regardless if the coaches can build better plans or not because he can’t seem to anticipate his throws deep. Kelly May or may not but let’s look at the kid and either check boxes or know that he is just another qb in this league. Idk    dang you Luck for pulling out of this team like you did.
