Fourth and Short
Very short. Welcome to the Horseshoe, the home for Colts

analysis to find the essence of the game.
17 weeks. 17 syllables. That's all we need. Beat that,
Each year the 'Shoe also predicts winners for
the full slate of NFL games. Jim Conway put the 'Shoe in its

The score: All tied! Horseshoe 39/60 Jim Conway

This week's game: Colts vs. Bengals, 10/6 12:00pm RCA Dome
Colts suck rocks versus bad teams.
Please God, not this week.
Sad little tigers,
The game is played with pigskin,
not a ball of string.
Heads up, Colts defense.
Keep Corey Dillon in check.
Make 'em pass to win.
Bangles played music
Bengals used to play football
These are the Bungles.
Line up and play hard.
On any given Sunday,
even good teams lose.
Kitna, Smith, Frerotte.
Profiles in ineptitude.
Twelve years ago. Twelve!
Bengals last winning season.
Bakers dozen now?
Peyton's pregame show.
Golden boy, chest-thumping gits.
Fish out of water.
