Colts missed the memo
Regular season started
last Sunday with Bears.

 

Most troubling of all
Defense prone to big run plays
Safeties not so safe. 

 

New digs; no more dome
Football played under sky and
field of plastic grass.

 

How did Colts forget
Formula to beat the Bears?
Run ball, play defense.

 

Wind taken from sails
Colt crowd trudges home, unfulfilled
Drained like Peyton's sac.

 

Generosity
Safety, fumble, fourth down fail
Three Bear scores gift-wrapped

 

Without training camp,
Manning, offense out of synch
Fine tuning needed.

 

First September loss
Fifteen more chances to prove
week one was a fluke.
