    Default Reggie Wayne "...reporting for duty"

    http://www.indystar.com/article/2012...yssey=obinsite

    Reggie Wayne

    The veteran receiver has often made dramatic -- and thematic -- arrivals at training camp.

    This morning, he showed up in three Humvees with soldiers from the Indiana National Guard in Shelbyville.

    Emerging from one of the Humvees in military fatigues, Wayne declared: "Reggie Wayne reporting for duty."
    The military escort was planned two years ago, but the Colts, then under different management, nixed the idea, said Staff Sgt. Lamont Sullivan.

    I think Reggie will struggle to get 700 yards this season. He is getting old and can't separate and Luck will be running for his life.......

    I'm not sure Reggie Wayne ever could separate... Manning just knew where to put the ball for Wayne to be successful... if he ran the right route. So Luck will have to master that trait because I doubt Wayne suddenly becomes a speedster at this point in his career.

    Reggie Wayne alone will not make or break Luck anyway. He's just another piece of the puzzle.

    Wayne has been known to be a physical player. When that goes, then he is done...

    He can't separate and was a physical receiver? Which Colts games have you guys been watching? I'm positive Reggie has gotten his because of his great route running and brilliant hands. If you really think Peyton just put it in his hands everytime, then you should go ahead and stay in the Pacers forum because you clearly haven't seen Reggie Wayne. I mean, he was sure having problems against one of the best defenses in Houston, last year, right? Thunder Dan Orlovsky was just putting it on a rope everytime.

    You guys...lol

    Go Youtube Reggie Wayne. You must be mistaken him with E.G. Green or someone else. I hope so, because this is a pretty ignorant post.

    I'll stand by my post. It wasn't meant to be disrespectful of Reggie. It was meant to say he's managed to be a very effective receiver without having blinding speed (not that he's slow either). Reggie has great hands and a great work ethic. If he has a QB who can get him the ball where the defender can't beat him to it, more times than not he will come away with the catch.

    I agree that Reggie's numbers will decline, but I attribute that to us running the ball more and our new tight end duo. Reggie will still be the #1 target when passing but I suspect that teams will be trying to double team him trying to take him out of the game to see if any of our young receivers are able to step up.

    What makes you think they will be running the ball more. You run when you are ahead or when the game is close. That won't be happening much to the Colts, they will be behind most of the time and in passing situations. Lots of sacks, many hurries and interceptions while trying to evade the pass rush...... ...

    I just see them better running the ball than pass protection. It seems that we are gathering those big and burly O linemen that may not be the nimblest with fleet of foot but can be like road graters and just chew up the turf and manage the game clock. I also think that more short passes and screens to the TE's and RB's. Hopefully one of our young RB's will take command of the starting RB roll. I am hoping Donald Brown will embrace that roll, but there is other competition at that role. If we can do that consistently well then I think Luck will gain enough confidence to sling the ball deeper and Reggie will get his touches the second half of the season but not like when Peyton was in his prime.

    He would decline with anyone not named Peyton chucking the ball. He has lost a step, pure and simple..... ... Shift+R improves the quality of this image. CTRL+F5 reloads the whole page.

    I think Reggie would still put up great numbers if Aaron Rodgers, Tom Brady or Drew Brees were throwing him the ball.

    Sure, Manning makes everyone on offense look better. But Wayne demonstrated he's a great route receiver with very good technique. Those are his strengths and he had that with or without Manning and they worked ok with terrible backups tossing to him. Luck is more like Manning than he is Curtis Painter and he may be his equal. I think you will find they operate very well together.

    In any event, Reggie never made his mark with great speed or explosiveness. As such, he never had that step you are talking about. He will probably decline in a couple years, but he's going to be the same player he was last year.

    The fact Wayne plays well will have a lot to do with Luck, but not luck.

    Please, Reggie Wayne is a very good receiver still even without Peyton. #18 helped Wayne certainly, but he's not a product of Manning's greatness like maybe some other receivers have been.

    No, he may no longer be one of the NFL's elite, but he's a seasoned veteran who will run crisp routes and catch pretty much everything that is thrown in his vicinity. He's not a burner, but was Jerry Rice? Speed doesn't always define a good receiver.

    Yes. As an NFL WR in his 30's ages, he will become slower. Not that groundbreaking. Second, yes, you're right on the 2nd one. If Peyton Hillis was chucking the pigskin to Reggie every play his stats would be practically identical, if not higher.

    I think there's an AFC Offensive Player of the Week award in Reggie's future. I bet Garcon hopes he declines like that.

    Reggie Wayne has 506 receiving yards in four games. He ranks #3 in the NFL in receiving yards and #1 in receiving yards per game, 126.5. http://espn.go.com/nfl/statistics/pl...stat/receiving

    I remember that Ol Blu prefers Pierre Garcon (#94in the NFL with 153 yards), but the other thing that's really telling is how Ol' Blu It Again was so adamant about the Colts needing to hang onto Joseph Addai, who very clearly lost his explosiveness and burst some time ago and who remains unsigned after being cut by the Patriots.

    Wayne has already caught half as many balls as he did the entire season last year. 36 so far this year, 75 total last year. Think he likes having Luck around?

    Reggie is without question one of the greatest Indianapolis Colts ever.
