INDIANAPOLIS -- The Colts have named Chris Ballard their new general manager, the team announced Sunday.

 

"Chris has a solid reputation throughout the National Football League as a heavyweight executive and our extensive discussions with him confirmed that reputation,'' Irsay said in a statement released by the team. "He's a savvy, organized, and thorough talent evaluator, but beyond that, he's a terrific person our community will be proud of.''

It will be very interesting to follow his career there in Indianapolis. Bears fans will get an insight into what could have been the bears GM. The Bears passed on Ballard when they signed Emery to be the teams GM. Ballard interviewed for the job and many thought he was the front runner to replace Angelo. But then the Bears surprised everyone by announcing Emery as their top choice.

If Ballard turns the Colts into a Super Bowl contender, just another what could have been for the Bears.

.........sounds like the same things people in Chicago were saying about Pace and Emery for that matter when they were hired.  There is always a tone of optimism for the most part in the beginning.
