Reggie Wayne On Skill Depth: "That's Something We Have In Our Arsenal That A Lot Of Teams Don't"

Intro: At Reggie Wayne’s radio show on Tuesday night, No. 87 discussed a ton of topics surrounding the Colts hot start offensively. What did Wayne chat about on WNDE’s Query and Schultz?


INDIANAPOLIS – Reggie Wayne was back on his weekly radio show this week to chat about the Colts first win of 2014.

Here are some of the highlights from Wayne joining Query and Schultz:

On the Colts 44-17 win over the Jaguars:

"We all understand how hard it is to win games in this league, no matter who your opponent is and what their record is. But we know when we are hitting on all cylinders, we are going to be tough to deal with and the way we started the (Jaguars) game out was kind of a glimpse of that and hopefully we can do more of that. We know if we don't shoot ourselves in the foot offensively, we can get the ball moving, we can run and pass. And whenever our defense is playing the way they did on Sunday, we are going to be hard to stop."

On if Wayne thinks Sunday was Andrew Luck's best game in the NFL:

"I wouldn't say that. If you look at what the stats say, you may have that argument, but I've seen some comeback games that he has had under his belt that were pretty outstanding where he was just as relaxed as if we had the lead."

On the play of the offensive line early in 2014:

"They all have to work together for anything to happen on the plus side, if you're running the ball or passing the ball, because it all starts with them anyways. The last couple of weeks, they've really been playing as a unit. I think they are excited about their play. It's to the point where as a receiver, you want to throw every time but you are kind of enjoying seeing them come together, even with all the injuries we've had and all the shuffling we've been doing. They've come together and put some good play out there. We've been running the ball pretty good and that's all you can ask for. Those guys are laying it on the line each week and hopefully we can keep going the right way."

On the Colts spreading the ball around:

"Think about when Marvin Harrison caught 143 passes (2002 season). I go home looking at my hands making sure they still can work (laughs), wondering why I'm not getting the passes. If you look at the big picture, we are winning games everything is on the up-and-up. That's all that matters at the end of the day. I think as a skill position on the offense, you are always going to have a little part in you that's going to be a little selfish, but as long as that's only three or five percent, as long as you got 95 percent of wanting to do what's best for the team, I think you'll be fine. Everybody wants the glory but we do understand if you win it all, and I can speak from experience, if you win it all, there's going to be plenty to share for everybody."

On nine different players catching the ball at least twice on Sunday:

"That's the beauty of it. That's something we have in our arsenal that a lot of teams don't have and that's numerous guys that can show up each week and play key roles. Like I said earlier, as long as Andrew is finding the open guys and guys are playing to that level, I think it's going to be hard for teams to keep up with us and key on one or two guys. We are blessed with a team where guys have a lot of experience and guys are eager to make themselves household names."
