i will miss him he had a lot of good football talk

He was a huge Cubs fan like I am as well. I am so glad he got to see the Cubs win the World Series, they hadn't won in 108 years. I will miss him like everyone in here does.

I have to say I was stunned when I read of Gavin's passing.

It was like getting punched in the gut.

 

I was looking forward to his Draft Profile Reports that are so nice to read this time of year.

I've only been mocking for 2 seasons, this season will be my 3rd. His Draft reports gave us so much information. I kinda felt good when teams known for drafting well like the Steelers, Ravens, and Giants happen to draft a player that I had in one of my mocks. I'm sure Gavin's reports contributed.

But I felt even better when Gavin himself had one of my guys in his mocks.

 

R.I.P. fellow Colt Fan, you are already being missed on this forum.

On January 24, 2017, the Colts Forum lost a treasured member of its family, @Gavin

 

Brandon Lee Marshall, known as Gavin to us, was a long-time member (Senior Member and Hall of Famer).  A diehard Colts, Cubs, and Pacers fan, he was active on the forum nearly every day, sharing his thoughts and insights. He had over 25,000 posts and more than 7000 likes. He made us laugh. We learned so much from him; his contributions will be missed.

 

We are not aware of the cause of death, but regardless of the cause, he was taken from us too soon and we'll miss him.

 

So glad Gavin (Brandon) got to see the Cubs win the World Series. And he shared his joy with us. Now he can celebrate with Harry Caray and all other Cubs greats.

 

 

 

RIP Gavin.  We miss you.

 

Please use this space to share your remembrances of our brother Gavin.

I've been away from the Forum for quite some time and was really saddened to hear that Gavin has passed away.

 

He was a good guy and such a knowledgeable fan... and he'll be missed here!

 

Prayers for comfort and strength for his family. :(

One thing I will remember about Gavin is that he, much like Nadine and Superman, was cool-headed enough to squash quibbling on these boards.

 

I am embarrassed that a few times I have gotten into "cat-fights" with other members about silly things.  But each time, someone like Nadine, Superman, or Gavin stepped in and brought perspective.  The amount of respect that we have for these guys, alone, would be enough to cool hot heads, but it's the way they talk to people that builds that respect.  We all have our opinions, and we think we're right, but not all of us respect differing opinions.

 

I will miss Gavin, and I want to "shout out" some respect to all the members and moderators like Gavin.  Your level heads and way of communicating is head and shoulders above the rest.  Gavin was a voice you listened to, whether you agreed with his opinion or not, you respected him.

 

Gavin -  You, along with others, made me a better forum member.  You will be missed.  RIP.

Awesome post. :agree:

I am truly saddened by this news.  I know that I haven't been on this forum in a while, but after reading this, I feel as though I've been punched in the gut.  I will miss his insights and colorful commentary.

With the draft coming up in a few days I will personally dedicate our first round pick to Gavin which now means for sure this pick will work out now and be excellent.:thmup:

I've been absent for a long while, and am saddened to hear this.  Gavin was a genuinely interesting contributor here, one who stayed above the fray, and constantly sought and shared knowledge and insight about this team and the game of football.

    • I like the assessment. I would personally include Mingo in pleasant surprises, the guy is all around the ball all the time, he is rejuvinated it seems with us after lackluster play in Cleveland and NE. I also would include Mack in pleasant surprises as i believe we have only seen glimpses of the REAL Mack attack yet due to the coaches not playing him, i understand we have a proven veteran RB on the team, after this season when Gore leaves im fully confident Mack will assume the number 1 role and become a top 5 running back in the league. Then lastly i would put the Oline in dissapointments, as you stated nobody expected them to blow anyone away but i personally dont think anyone expected them to be as bad as the have been either.
    • Geathers was having a great season last year under monachino before his neck injury I think he will be fine he needs to play more man to man.
    •   ^^^ ban this user!! ^^^
    • It was the only show I watched or listened to on ESPN. Now that they are no longer a team I will have no need to tune into ESPN at all.
    • I think you have done a very nice assessment of our teams progress and where we are right now.  Most of the teams improvement has come on the defensive side of the ball coming from additions and improvement from our young players.  The loss of Luck for the year and the hurried assimilation of Brissett to the lineup certainly has not helped the offense meet our preseason expectations.  I read where Doyle was second in the league in receptions among TE's before the Pittsburgh game.  A stat that blew me away actually.  Who knows what a healthy Luck and a better OL  would have done for Moncrief and the rest of the WR's.   I think you have to congratulate the coaches for this progress and continued improvement that we have seen from this team.  They have gotten better and that's what we are looking for.  It might be a lost season record wise but if you are looking at player and overall team development you have to be pleased with the great progress they have made this year.  No one is happy with the record but you can not ignore the overall improvements that have been achieved.  Everyone is looking forward to new coaches next year but this years staff has done some pretty impressive work teaching and improving the overall contributions of our players.
