    I don't think this has been posted anywhere else, but ESPN.com has a very nice piece about Tillery. It's a written story, not a video story. And it's about all the things you've seen talked about here. His other interests beside football. But his real and growing interest in football. He appears to be an exceptionally smart and well spoken young man who is just beginning to realize what a football career can mean for the rest of his life. Note: This is a longer read than I usually post. But if you're interested at all in Tillery, then it's a very enjoyable read. He's an easy kid to like and root for. Enjoy! http://www.espn.com/nfl/draft2019/story/_/id/26440136/nfl-draft-south-bend-south-africa-jerry-tillery-ready-next

    I apologize. I suppose I just do not, and never will, feel comfortable with the whole ribbing, trash talk, mindset that's prevalent on social media. I really have no use for social media, and this is the only place I go for Colts info, but..... that's apparently my issue, and there's solutions to that. Carry on.

    Did you read the entire convo between @2006Coltsbestever and me because it was a discussion about why I am luke warm about baseball especially right now and he was talking to me about why he is so proud of the Cubs not demeaning anyone

    Here is the answer to both questions @2006Coltsbestever and I are a lot alike in our fandom for our favorite teams He was relating the story to me I am sure that @HOZER, @NFLfan, and @Jay Kirk aknows fans of other teams and had instances like this at work or in public. I know I have

    Yeah but my point is more about the poor hotel staff that have to put up with this. When you make a giant mess of the place, some poor person has to clean it. Sometimes only making min wage. My grandfather was a caretaker for my school. Everytime someone thought it was funny to flush something stupid down the toilet he was there. Im all for good fun, but why make someone's day harder.

    I posted this information in the meetings/interest thread but I thought the info is piling up way too much to ignore the obvious connections. The Colts are already reported to have scheduled a private meeting/workout with McGary: Also... It seems like Howard Mudd tutored Kaleb McGary during the pre-draft process before he took the Colts assistant coach job. It's also of note that the new Colts OLine coach Chris Strausser was McGary's OLine coach during his freshman and sophomore years in 2015 and 2016: Here's Mudd at an OLine clinic talking about a pass-protection technique he teaches and he uses McGary as an example and says: "So you pro guys[this is probably NFL Oline coaches and scouts he's talking to] pay attention to this guy(McGary). He's pretty good.": Take it for whatever it's worth. IMO there is a realistic change we pursue OT in the draft and IMO McGary is a very realistic target.

    Its a lazy Sunday afternoon. What better to do than a Colts' mock draft! Two trades: 1. Because the top pass rushers are gone, Colts trade pick # 26 to New England for the Pats' #32 and #97. The Pats grab a QB to groom. 2. Colts trade pick #34 and #129 to Tampa Bay for the Bucs' #39 and #70. T. Bay moves to grab the last good QB left after the first round run and pays extra for him. Basically, the Colts pick up two additional 3rd round picks for a slight drop back in the 1st and early 2nd rounds. Colts first 5 rounds. Round 1, Pick 32: Dexter Lawrence, DT. They will work 15 lbs off him and he will become a terror. Round 2, Pick 39: Jonathan Abram, S. He will take Geathers' spot after next year, if not sooner. Round 2, Pick 59: Kaleb McGary, OT. All the personal connections are there. Mudd gets his clay to mold. Round 3, Pick 70: LJ Collier, DE. Not the alpha pass rusher we all want, but a very solid DE who can get in the backfield and hold the edge. Round 3, Pick 89: DaMarkus Lodge, WR. The third of the three musketeers from Mississippi. He's underrated and a steal at this point in the draft. Round 3, Pick 97: Alex Barnes, RB. Here is a big, tough third down specialist with skills and hands. He becomes Mack's backup. Round 4, Pick 135: Jordan Brown, CB. This guy is from a FBS school but has skills, size and promise. Round 5, Pick 164: CJ Conrad, TE. A quality TE who slips because of a bad heart test at the combine. A 2nd opinion has cleared him to play. I know we are all approaching mock draft burnout, but....so what? Would love to hear back from the gang. Critics are welcome.

    Lol. That is not a "spanking". I thought you were losing 9-0 or 10-2. Mets are getting spanked. We have walked 12 guys! It is 12-6.

    No big deal. I do post some redundant stuff and if someone isn't a Cubs fan they may get tired of reading it. I don't post on Twitter or have Facebook so this is this place I tell my stories and post about the Cubs constantly. I really wish we had a Brewers fan in here or even 2, it would be fun for me.

    He get's ahead of the message. In a vacuum, doubts and opinions begin. He has a very real way of designing, sharing, and following his own plan....which creates very little space for doubt. Unless of course, one is on an internet board....dying to blame something...

    When it comes to @buccolts, what he says doesn't really bother me. I will defend myself though and say I never demean anyone in here and when the Cubs play bad I am very critical of them, when they play well than yes I do boast at times. The Whitesox fan on here that doesn't post on here much has bashed the Cubs several times on here in the past, @Myles even takes his occasional shots at the Cubs, it's called friendly ribbing, banter. The story I told was about a Whitesox fan I work with, it wasn't even about anyone in here and he hates the Cubs like most Whitesox fans do. Maybe I shouldn't go to other forums and read what some of their fans post because some of the stuff they say is awful about the Cubs. This is the only place I post so I get a lot of my chest when I am here. I also love posting stuff about the history of the game, hence those posts. I am far from insecure about the Cubs.

    Wrong. If you were doing it in jest or to rib us Cubs fans we would laugh and talk smack right back at you. There’s fans of several teams on here and obviously not just the Cubs. That’s kind of the whole point of this thread, to talk about and maybe boast a little bit about our teams. Heck, we even criticize and berate them when necessary, it’s all in fun. Cubby Chubbies, I never heard that one, that’s great, lol!

    Pot meet kettle, you’re demeaning an excellent poster on here for simply expressing his feelings about a teams accomplishments and maybe talking a little bit of friendly smack. I seem to recall having an interaction with you in the past about the Cubs/Pirates, can’t remember exactly what it was about and am not going to read through hundreds of pages to find it, lol, but it was friendly banter if I recall, at least on my side it was.

    I get it with Tillery. He has prototypical 3T traits, with exceptional length and power. Heavy hands, strong punch, strong grip, and when he lands accurately he takes control of the opposing blocker. His push-pull is excellent, his rip is probably his best move, and then he has a club move that he sets up with some quickness in his feet. He used all of these against Notre Dame. He's significantly improved in these areas from 2017. Makes me wonder what his ceiling is. I see DeForest Buckner, because of the length and power. But Tillery has some lateral agility that I don't remember from Buckner. There's a question of consistency. The effort question seems answered, but from game to game he seemed different. Maybe it's not fair to compare anything to the Notre Dame game, but I first watched the Michigan game. He still looked good, but he got washed out against the run more often, seemed to have no pass rush plan from down to down, sometimes took himself out of the play because of it... He also faced a lot of double teams in that game. I'm not certain he will be an effective interior pass rusher in the NFL. He has to improve his consistency, keep his pads down, and learn how to string moves together without getting washed out of his rush lane. I think his power will translate, but that's always a question mark, especially when there are inconsistencies with technique. As for how he fits with the DL and whether it makes sense to draft him, I don't get the question. We have decent 3T players now. Maybe a nice rotation, depending on how Lewis plays there. But like @stitches said, don't let good be the enemy of great. No one on our team is a great interior pass rusher. Autry had a career high in sacks, but that's not something he's ever done before, so to count on it moving forward would be a mistake. 3T is the most important position in this defense, and we have a couple decent players there, no one great. Even if we did have a great 3T, there's nothing wrong with having two. I'm fine with 8 great DL. The draft is for adding good young players that can grow and be developed, and hopefully become really good players for your team. Roster mechanics should not prevent you from adding good prospects. The more talent you have, the better your team will be.

    He’s proud of his team, nothing wrong with that. It was quite an accomplishment to win the World Series after a 108 year drought. You’re right there is a White Sox fan on here, not that it matters because yes he was discussing a interaction he had with a friend who is a White Sox fan, and was telling us about it, simple discussion, didn’t bother anyone else. The Cubs/Brewers rivalry is starting to heat up, so I expect there will be plenty of banter to come, you may not be happy. Didnt say you should block him, maybe just cruise by his posts in this thread if they are ruining your day.

    I thought you were just joking with him at first, Geez....... Its not childish swipes, it’s called friendly banter, ribbing, trash talk. A lot of fans do it.........and he always gives credit where credit is due. Just like you mention he doesn’t have to go on thier forums or read thier comments, you don’t have to read his posts if it gets your underwear in such a knot. Also noticed no one else seems to have a problem with it. Oh and btw, with social media the way it is, you no longer have to go to thier forums to see what they are saying, sometimes they bombard the Cubs/Colts sites with trash talk. Speaking of Crips......

    I've been on the A.J. Brown bandwagon since the off-season began. I think he is the #1 wr for Indy. Will he be the best in the NFL of this class when all said and done? I'm not sure. But I think of everyone in this class, A.J. has the best shot of being tops for production in Indy.

    Roger Goodell does not get Booed... Jacoby Brissett in some sort of trade nets us another 2nd round pick... Colts trade out of 1st round and get 2 second round picks (1 in 2019, 1 in 2020)... The draftee walking music is nothing but old Waylon Jennings, Hank Williams and George Jones songs... Colts Draft Teammates The 2019 NFL Draft is sponsored by: Jack Daniels Country Cocktails...

    I am sure if there was a Brewers fan here, you would not post anything to hurt his/her feelings. You got along with AMfootball when no one else couldn't. Lol. When she put down your favorite players and team, you did not demean her or the Pats. So, I'm sure you would get along with that Brewers fan. I think the more the merrier. I wish more baseball fans would join. I notice that there are Orioles fans and Yankees fans but they don't post in this thread. While it is a baseball thread, it seems that only fans of NL teams are posting.

    I've also noticed a number of fans with the mentality that you can only get good players from the first wave of free agency or the first round of the draft. In reality, most pro-bowl and all-pro players started out as unknowns who became great because they were "home-grown" by the team that drafted them in round 2 or later, or even started as an UDFA and played their tail off for the team that took a chance on them. And I believe Ballard has been preaching "home-growing" a great team since day 1. He will probably find his own Demarcus Lawrence, Antonio Brown, and LeVeon Bell types and "home-grow" them without having to overpay.

    One reason why I only went to home games when I went to Colts games was because I felt safe. I went to around 50 games in my time from 1984-2013, last game I went too was the Texans game in 2013 and we stomped them. Anymore I just enjoy watching at home and not messing with crowds of people. I did go to 1 Colts road game, that at Chicago in 2004. I went with 3 other guys and 2 of them played O.Line for Ben Davis when I was in school . Nobody was messing with us . Colts won big that day but the Bears fans around us were actually cool.

    I don’t think there’s any chance Ballard gives up his 34th overall selection. That’s basically a late 1st.
