Five Step Drop...

Then seven, then five more. 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, ESPN.

Colts Haiku: Colts vs. Saints, Sept. 28

Superdome Sunday
Bourbon Street boy returns home.
Is this Peyton's place?

Reggie's breakout game.
Double Marvin, he'll burn you.
Defensive nightmare.

Patience, composure
Old horses can learn new tricks.
The Dungy effect.

Pre-snap huddle bounce.
Larry Triplett gets his groove
Call it getting crunked.

Pocket collapses
Bratzke, Brock, Brooks in between.
New Orleans po' boy.

Edge finds room to run
Play-action pre-requisite.
Keeps defense honest.

Three wins in three tries.
Don't let it go to your heads.
Big Easy? Tough win.

Runner and gunner,
Brad Pyatt streaks down the field
Yep, he's a keeper!
