Gutless glass jawed loss
Playoff bye given away,
Colt season looks bleak

 

Fans walk fine line
Between optimism and
Complete denial

 

No defense, no wins.
One punt was all we needed
Inexcusable.

 

Against Colt defense
Mediocre teams put up
All-pro statistics.

 

Peyton, Reggie, Marv
Practice tackles at half time
Play defense now on.

 

Like accordion
Colt defense folds many times
Defeat’s sad music.

 

Pardon Peyton’s French
“Get us the bleeping ball back!”
Still, defense lays egg..

 

It’s all too clear now
Colt colors show in Houston
Cincy game mirage.
