Reggie Wayne Talks What It Was Like To Break The Colts Franchise Record

Intro: At Reggie Wayne’s radio show on Tuesday night, No. 87 discussed a ton of topics surrounding the Colts. What did Wayne have to say about playing game No. 209 with WNDE’s Query and Schultz?





INDIANAPOLIS – Reggie Wayne's final radio show of the 2014 regular season took place on Tuesday night.

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

On playing the most games in Colts history and having the most wins as well:

"It's definitely humbling. Like you said, there's so many great players that have been through this organization so it's definitely humbling. I appreciate it and I appreciate all the support from the fans. They make it easy for me when I'm out there playing."

On what the post game locker room was like after the game:

"By the time I got in the locker room, everyone was waiting on me and that's when I got my brothers, my teammates, who want to be funny and do the "Reg-gie" chant. They made a big deal about it and I'm grateful for those guys. I appreciate everything they've done for me. That's my brothers, man. I love them to death. I'd do anything for him. Just to be a part of the whole speech coach Pagano gave and Mr. Irsay gave, it was humbling. It really was."

On if he felt more comfortable physically against the Texans:

"I felt good. I finally got rid of that ugly brace. I talked my way to get rid of that so I was able to be me a little bit. I was able to get out there, get in the flow of the game. Andrew (Luck) threw me a couple of passes and I was able to catch them. Hopefully we can do more of that.

"I had to get clearance and consult the doctors to make sure it was the right decision (to take off the brace) and they ok'd it. That was like a breath of fresh air. Playing with that, it was definitely uncomfortable. It's not receiver friendly. That's why you don't see many receivers wearing them. Just to get rid of it, I'm excited and now I can go out there and be the 87 that everyone knows."

On winning another division title:

"It never gets old. They all have their own different feeling to them. I enjoy them all just like it's my first time doing it.

"It is (our first goal). We have that stepping stone and to win that division is that first box you can check off. You win the division, you are guaranteed to be in the playoffs. You are guaranteed to have a home game. That's what you want. That's what we fight for. We've conquered that first step and hopefully we can ride that journey and move on from that first step."

On the next goal:

"If you still have room to move up into the seeding chart, you want to definitely do that. And you still want to finish off the season strong. We've been blessed to have conquer the division but we still have a couple of games left where you want to win those games. You want to win, so you have that feeling rolling into the playoffs."

On the possibility of resting down the stretch:

"They pay me to play, man. The game is fun. Yeah, we understand there's a lot of things that can happen during the game but you want to play as much as you can. Me personally, I can't speak for anyone else, I enjoy the game. I love playing the game. So to go out there and play and compete, that means a lot to me. That's what I want to do. At the end of the day, that's not my decision to be made. I have to follow orders. I guess I just have to answer to the higher calling. If they tell me I'm going to sit down, there's nothing I can do about that. But if it was up to me, I would want to go out there and play.

"Our offense, we haven't started the last couple of games how we want to so we should want to play. We should want to go out there and kind of work out the kinks that we've been missing on."
