The good quotes usually come after a team loss. There’s ne exception with Reggie Wayne, the Indianapolis Colts WR rendered useless by New York Jets CB Darrelle Revis Saturday night, in which Wayne caught 1 ball for 1 yard.
“I give everything I’ve got no matter what. Every day, I give it everything. And . . . one ball, that’s all. I shouldn’t have even suited up,” Wayne said. “I should have watched the game like everybody else. I was irrelevant.”
Not since September 2004 had Reggie Wayne only made one catch in a full game.
In fact, despite finishing second in the NFL this season with a career-best 111 receptions, Wayne had only one pass thrown in his direction from Peyton Manning.
Talk about a shut-down CB. You can’t say enough about Revis’ ability to completely eliminate an opposing teams #1 WR.
Manning’s 26 pass attempts tied his lowest output of the season. He threw eight passes each to tight end Jacob Tamme and slot receiver Blair White. Pierre Garcon had five catches for 112 yards.
