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. Patriots  Nov. 30

Orchard Park, New York
Field frozen in November?
Seventy degrees.

Mistakes keep game close.
Bills fail to capitalize.
Colts regroup, come back.

Fourth down and a foot.
No play-action for ponies
Edge cuts in for score.

Eight men in the box,
Defense still can't stop the run.
Find a gap, fill it!

Hungry Edge needs fed
Prime numbers for factor back.
Ride him to playoffs.

Balance in all things.
If Pats think run, then Colts pass.
Pats think pass, Colts run.

Dwight Clark in the slot.
Linebacker or safety cover?
Matchup is the key.

Two weeks, two big games
Playoff picture will be clear.
Home game within reach.
