Moment of silence.
Collective gasp from the crowd.
Peyton prone on field.

 

Colts pick new player
300lb booger sticks
to any runner.

 

QB conference
One goes low, the other high
Manning in middle.

 

Poor punter Hunter.
Saving tackle belly flops
Next time fake a cramp.

 

Roughing the passer
Freeney love tap draws flag, not
clothesline helmet-pop?

 

Addai in the groove
Almost eight yards per carry
Hello, play action!

 

He plays ev'ry game
Why does it take a nasty hit
to know Peyton's tough?

 

Portis crawls off field
Well placed kick, a reminder:
Protect fam'ly jew'ls.
