Reggie Wayne Will "Start a New Streak This Week"

Indianapolis Colts WR Reggie Wayne didn’t need to be told on Monday. He had already mentioned to his wife how a scoring streak was about to come to an end with the culmination of New England’s victory over Kansas City.

Until last weekend, a player from the University of Miami had scored a touchdown in the NFL for 149 consecutive weeks. The streak started in Week 15 of 2002.

Wayne, like most, is proud of his “U” heritage. So it was a bit of a bummer that this run ended.

Asked what he thought about it, the 2001 first-round pick said, “It sucks.”

On an offense without QB Peyton Manning, everybody’s offensive numbers are down. Kerry Collins didn’t get it done. Curtis Painter can’t get it done. Dan Orlovsky has yet to get a chance to start.

So Wayne has only one TD this season. It was an acrobatic grab in the back of the end zone for the Colts’ only points in a 34-7 loss at Houston in the season opener.

But true to proud “U” form, the 11th-year pro suggested it’s time for him and his fellow Hurricanes to begin anew in the NFL.

“I’ll start a new streak this week,” Wayne said.
