Not since September 2004 had Reggie Wayne only made one catch in a full game, and he certainly didn't enjoy the most recent. "I give everything I've got no matter what. Every day, I give it everything. And . . . one ball, that's all." During the regular season, Wayne finished second in the NFL with a career-best 111 receptions. Against the Jets and Pro Bowl cornerback Darrelle Revis, he had one catch for 1 yard. More frustrating to Wayne was the fact quarterback Peyton Manning delivered only one pass in his direction. "I shouldn't have even suited up," Wayne said. "I should have watched the game like everybody else. I was irrelevant." (Indianapolis Star)Comment

And that might mean Shanahan and Allen better win in 2011 if they want to be around in 2012. (National Football Post)Comment
