Quarterback Quatrains

Football is a type of visual poetry. If you scored extra points in your fantasy league mock draft for your poetry prowess, how would you describe your favorite players in poem form. Experiment with different rhyme schemes and poem styles as you do this.

How do you determine who is the best?

Is it touchdowns, wins, or Super Bowls?

If you were the team’s new quarterback,

What would be your dreams and goals?

Aaron rodgers green bay packers

Aaron RodgersGreen Bay Packers

He is the reigning Super Bowl champion,

A great leadership performance to win it all.

After this year’s eight and o start,

What do you see for him in your crystal ball?

Tom brady new england patriots

Tom BradyNew England Patriots

He has the most Super Bowl victories,

Records and dazzling throws galore.

He has been close a number of times,

Is this the year he gets number four?

Michael vick philadelphia eagles

Michael VickPhiladelphia Eagles

He fascinates you with his runs and throws,

Our city loves a winner as everyone knows.

The Cowboys and The Giants are our foes,

Let’s see how this year’s Super Bowl quest goes.

A neck injury is ending an awesome career,

His list of records is without equal.

We wish for a safe and speedy recovery,

And hope to marvel at his sequel.

Ellie manning new york giants

Ellie ManningNew York Giants

A strangely quiet quarterback,

But like his brother he has a ring.

How do we measure his success,

Is an often perplexing thing.

Drew brees new orleans saints

Drew BreesNew Orleans Saints

He brought Super Bowl glory

To a town destroyed in a disaster.

Surpassed now by the Packers and more,

Teams who seem to be bigger and faster.

Philip rivers san diego chargers

Philip RiversSan Diego Chargers

He has all the tools to be a champ,

A great understanding and great arm.

Now if only his offensive lineman,

Could keep him from mayhem and harm.

Cam newton carolina panthers

Cam NewtonCarolina Panthers

He is the new guy,

They always go to the poorest team.

How long do you estimate,

Before he reaches that illusive dream???

Joe flacco baltimore ravens

Joe FlaccoBaltimore Ravens

Would Flacco be Poe’s favorite Raven?

I guess, if he were a football fan.?

He won’t break our Telltale Heart,

Following his present touchdown plan.

Matthew stafford detroit lions

Matthew StaffordDetroit Lions

Detroit is the Motor City,

With QB Stafford sleeker than a Ford.

When he gets some needed support,

How many touchdowns will he have scored?

Sport poetry

Sport Poetry

What other forms of poetry can you use in highlighting your sports’ favorites.

We used the Haiku format on the next page to introduce Mark Sanchez. Can you use prose or another style in your descriptions?

Wants Super Bowl now.

How would you describe the new rookies in the National Football League?.

Tim tebow denver broncos

Tim TebowDenver Broncos

Tim Tebow had a great record with Florida at the college level, but everyone predicts he won’t make it in the pros. Can you express your critique of his skills or your success prediction in poem form?

Additional ideas

Additional Ideas

Pick another position or another sport to highlight in poem form. Have you tried this with the best of the old timers or Hall of Fame members? How about keeping it closer to home with poetic portraits of family members as your subject.
