Chris Polian, son of former Colts GM Bill Polian, has officially been hired by the Jaguars as their new director of pro personnel. The hiring shouldn't be surprising, considering that David Caldwell worked for Bill Polian and Chris Polian in Indianapolis from 1998 to 2007 before moving to Atlanta. In Atlanta, Caldwell helped Chris Polian find employment, and now, Caldwell is helping again. Chris Polian succeeded his father in Indianapolis as the Colts' general manager from 2009 to 2011 before both father and son were canned by Jim Irsay following a disastrous year without their star quarterback Peyton Manning. While Bill Polian was instrumental in building the Colts' roster around Peyton Manning, his son Chris never really left much of a mark in terms of solid draft picks. It's largely because of shoddy drafts that the Colts fell to pieces without Peyton Manning. Despite not making a name for himself with draft picks, Chris Polian has developed quite the reputation of being a jerk, especially among blogger types. The Polians were notoriously crappy to the media, but bloggers weren't even treated as legitimate carriers of information. Fortunately for everyone, we probably won't be hearing from Chris Polian in the near future. His position isn't one that will put him in contact with the media very often, and we'll be able to find out if he's a good evaluator of talent or rode his last name to the top of Indianapolis' personnel department.
