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.

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.

    • Supe it's not an angle whatsoever, it's purely the truth.   I am, of course not talking about you, or what you do on this board in terms of evaluating players. I always enjoy hearing your take on players.   I am obviously talking about the people spewing bile on here after the loss to the Raiders, and every other loss for that matter. And a lot of that includes tripe about Jacoby Brissett that just goes way over the top.   We can disagree on Brissett, it's not really a big deal. And I apologize for quoting you in the other thread and giving you the impression I am including you in this. I'm really not. I quoted you because I would rather debate the topic with someone like yourself than get sucked into a flame war with some troll, which has happened to me a time or two. That's all. Me and you can have a somewhat interesting discussion. I always enjoy it.     
    • Nice thread...    There have been some arguments for a while now about the relative value of pass-coverage vs pass-rush. Teams offensively are turning to faster and faster game plans and this affects the pass-rush a ton. You can practically scheme the pass-rush away if you have good enough QB and receivers that get open quickly. The latest advanced analytics seem to favor positions like CB and WR value-wise over long-held champions like EDGE rushers or OTs. I will also take into account your characterization of the rest of the roster(average players as opposed to straight up trash). At some positions the improvement between pro-bowler and average/JAG is higher than at other positions. Those are just part of the considerations that will inform my choise here:   Offense:   1. QB: not controversial take here - most important position of all... he handles the ball and makes a decision that might affect the game pretty much 100% of the snaps. I want the best passer and decisionmaker to run my offense.    2. WR: yep, give me a beast of an X-receiver. Pass-catchers are incredibly important.   3. LT: Yeah, I know, this goes against some of the things I said above, but time and time again we see what a great LT does to an offensive line. Leremy Tunsil is not even that great and he almost single-handedly turned around the HOU OLine. Same with AC last year - we missed him mightily when he was injured to start the year and then turned the line into a great unit. And again - he's not even at the level we are talking here. He still has not had a pro-bowl or all-pro recognition(maybe he gets one this year, he deserves it). But yeah... give me Bakhtiari, give me Armstead, give me Tyron Smith level player... I think this raises the level of the whole O-Line, especially if it's filled with average players at the other positions(rather than horrible ones)   ------------------------------------ Those will be my selections offensively. I think a QB masks a lot of deficiencies and I think he elevates average players and squeezes everything out of most of them. Just look at what Luck used to do with players like Jack Doyle, Donte Moncrief, Eric Ebron, Inman, Coby Fleener, Dwayne Allen...    Defense:   4. CB: yep, I want a shut down corner. Like I said earlier, newest research shows pass-coverage and especially on the boundary is paramount. and it affects pass-rush more than pass-rush affects CB play.    5. CB: yep, give me one more... I'm shutting down both sides of the field and hoping this gives additional time to my pass-rush to get there. They will play on island and I will scheme out everything else(i.e. slot receivers and TEs)... if I have to I will double away from them.    6. WILL: I want a sideline to sideline monster to clean up the run game and take on crossing routes in the short-intermediate middle in coverage.     7. EDGE: I still want a player capable of beating his man one-on-one on the line and creating pressure/affecting the pass when my pro-bowl CBs lock down their match ups.    So what do you think? Does it make sense?
