Reggie Wayne on criticism: 'You ever heard of toilet material?'

INDIANAPOLIS -- Indianapolis Colts receiver Reggie Wayne extended his streak of games with at least three catches to 81 last week against Jacksonville.

How he did it, though, two catches that totaled two yards in the final three minutes of a game that had already been determined is what raised a lot of eyebrows.
Wayne and the Colts were criticized on their approach for the receiver to extend the streak.

"You ever heard of toilet material? That’s the category I put that in," Wayne said about the criticism. "People will have their own theories, their own opinions. All I can do is go out and do my job, run the plays that are called and keep it moving. Since I’ve been playing at the age of 7, everything hasn’t been peaches and cream. It’s my job to go out there and prove you wrong and keep going."

Wayne and quarterback Andrew Luck weren’t on the same page most of the game. That was obvious when Luck overthrew his security blanket on a pass attempt that would have resulted in a big gain for the Colts.

"It was totally me," Wayne said. "He did his job. Put the ball in the right area. I have to find a way to make that catch. I take pride in catching every pass that’s thrown to me whenever it touches my hand, whether it’s high, low, far (or) short. I was open, and if I would have caught it would have been a big play. That’s my fault."

Wayne had his worst game of the season against the Jaguars, finishing with three catches for 10 yards.

"I couldn’t tell you one game I had a good game in," Wayne said. "There’s always something you can take out and get better at. Things happen. It’s the NFL. Not every game is going to be your best, just be thankful that you have another game to rebound from. That’s just the way it goes."
