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. Falcons  Dec. 14

Pundits pummel him.
"Manning can't win the big game."
Will they shut up now?

Titans did not get
their yearly vaccinations
for fumble-itis.

Colts can't find end zone.
Forced to settle for field goals,
they give Titans hope.

On Tennessee fields,
Many Titans fought and fell.
Finesse put to rest.

Another hurdle.
Bitter rival beaten twice.
Colts set sights higher.

Tight spiral arcs down
A single hand snatches it
as if by magic.

Little yellow flag
announces Colt sloppiness
and stupidity.

Future superstar,
equal threat to run or pass.
Can Colts contain Vick?
