Six points, six years...

Welcome to year six of 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.

Issue # 90: Colts vs. Texans

Defenses, beware.
Only two things can stop Colts.
Themselves or the clock.

Eight hundred catches
in less games than anyone
ever in the league!

Peyton to Marvin.
Ev'ry catch sets new record.
No one will catch them.

Thankless foot soldiers
give Edge daylight to run to
and keep Peyton clean.

Greatness would be nice,
but mediocre's ok.

Mid-season check-up.
Lack of balance proves costly
in all three losses.

No kickoff quick fix.
Colts lack faith in Vanderjagt.
Kickers don't tackle.

Whippersnap Texans
Look for first win in Indy.
Ponies still beat cows.
