Wayne eclipses 10,000 yards

Posted by Andy Benoit

When all is said and done, it could very well be Reggie Wayne, and not Marvin Harrison, going down as the most prolific wide receiver in Colts history.

Against the Colts on Monday, Wayne became just the 34th player in NFL history to eclipse the 10,000-yard mark in career receiving yards. Heading into the game, Wayne needed five yards to reach the milestone.

Wayne is only 31. Assuming he has another four quality seasons left in him (and he should, given that he’s taken few hits and never been injured), he’ll make a run at Marvin Harrison’s 14,580 career receiving yards mark. Harrison currently ranks sixth all-time in that category.

Ward catches ball in 183rd straight game

Posted by Andy Benoit

Steelers receiver Hines Ward caught a four-yard pass from Ben Roethlisberger to mark his 183rd consecutive game with a reception. That ties Art Monk for the fourth longest streak in NFL history.

Jerry Rice holds the all-time record with 274 consecutive games with a catch (by the way, remember how upset Rice looked on the sideline when that streak came to an end in the Raiders’ 13-10 win over the Bills six years ago?)

Marvin Harrison is second all-time with 190 consecutive games with a catch (none of which he celebrated in the least bit). Third is Terrell Owens with 185 (his streak came to an end last season – and can you believe, we hardly heard a peep about it?).

Ward has now played in 191 career games. The last time he went “catchless” was Week 9 against the Tennessee Oilers in his rookie season.

Another impressive passing record in Indy

Posted by Andy Benoit

Peyton Manning and Reggie Wayne took advantage of the Jaguars’ major problems at the No. 2 cornerback spot Sunday (The Jags recently benched Derek Cox for Bengals castoff David Jones; Jones has been spotty in his man coverage technique). Wayne caught a career-high 15 passes for 196 yards. (The 10th-year veteran is now on pace for an 1,800-yard receiving season.)

The eruption left Wayne with 9,849 career receiving yards. Most of those yards have come from a Manning pass. In fact, on Sunday the duo moved into second place all-time for yards between a quarterback-receiver tandem. Here’s the amazing kicker: first place of all-time is Manning and Marvin Harrison (12,766 yards).

In his prime, Harrison was the most fundamentally sound wideout in the NFL. Somewhere during the two years preceding Harrison’s 2008 exit from football, Wayne assumed that title.

Wayne is only 31 and has never had a serious injury. In fact, thanks to the finesse nature of Indy’s offense, he hasn’t taken many hits. It’s likely that he has five good seasons still left. Manning has at least five good seasons left. It’s not a matter of whether the two set all the quarterback-receiver records – it’s a matter of whether they can make those records untouchable.

Marvin Harrison Has Gun Confiscated

Police confiscated a 9 mm handgun from former Colts wide receiver Marvin Harrison during a traffic stop Wednesday. Harrison was stopped three blocks from the Philadelphia garage he owns where, you may recall, in 2008, three people were injured in a shooting. Harrison’s name came up in that case, but he was never charged. Police are testing Harrison’s gun to see if it is related to the ’08 shooting.

ESPN the Magazine’s Shaun Assael described Wednesday’s incident:

"The 37-year-old former Pro Bowl receiver was driving the wrong way down the one-way street in a Cadillac Escalade when the patrolman stopped him along with the driver of a second car that was trailing him, the sources said.

According to the law enforcement sources, the patrolman saw Harrison place something that appeared to be a weapon in the seat console of his car. When the officer asked him to step out of the vehicle, Harrison produced a car registration and a permit to carry a weapon, both of which were in order. When he was asked whether he had a weapon, however, he answered no, the sources said.

At that point, the sources added, the officer said that he had probable cause to search the vehicle and found a weapon in the seat console."
