Fourth and Short
Very short. Welcome to the Horseshoe, the home for Colts
haiku. Football is a game of simple grace and power, grit and
glory unleashed in small explosions. It's poetry in motion. Fast
forward, that is. The 'Shoe doesn't need pages of stat-crunching
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
place last season. This year, he returns to defend his title.

This week's game: Colts vs. Washington Sunday
10/27 8:30pm FedEx Field
Tale of two QBs
Manning has the pedigree
Maddox gets the win.
First quarter blocked punt.
Colts falter out of the gate
and then pull up lame.
Ponies whine to press,
"No one respects us." Press says,
"Play well; you'll get it."
Monday night marquee.
Like the duck billed platypus,
these Colts can lay eggs.
Slow motion train wreck.
True Colt fans can't look away.
Like moths to the flame.
Poor clueless ponies,
Not a bus stop; stop the Bus!
Colts lack horsepower.
Manning, a marked man,
green turf wedged in his helmet.
Three picks, one TD.
Sixteen game season.
This one is best forgotten.
Is it Sunday yet?
