Reggie Wayne still was doing a slow, quiet, frustrating burn as he deliberately dressed.
"It's bull. It's bull, man," the five-time Pro Bowl receiver said after being a non-factor in the Indianapolis Colts' 17-16 loss to the New York Jets in Saturday night's AFC wild-card playoff game at Lucas Oil Stadium.
"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."
The last time Wayne had just one catch in a game in which he played from start to finish was Sept. 9, 2004, at New England (one catch, 42 yards).
