Following the Colts' season-ending loss in Baltimore, we wrapped up the Reggie Wayne Show yesterday from Detour in Carmel. While we mostly focused on the season, Reggie had some interesting comments on how he felt about Ray Lewis doing his dance in the final minutes of the final home game of his NFL career.
They never played together at Miami, but Wayne had spoken highly of Lewis in the past, calling him a friend. He often talked about the bond that all Miami players in the NFL, both past and present, had with each other. Was their relationship ruined by this "incident"? It doesn't appear that way. However, it bothered Wayne enough to comment on it:
He went on to compare it to a 1998 Miami/Syracuse game, where the Hurricanes were on the losing end of a 66-13 score on Donovan McNabb's senior day. Wayne claimed the Orange used all three of their timeouts to re-insert the seniors, take them back out of the game, and then pull McNabb off the field.
Our conversation wasn't entirely controversial, as Wayne joked about free-agent-to-be Ed Reed potentially joining him and Chuck Pagano in Indianapolis. Query and I did our part to "break" the false report on Twitter:
We had a great time with the Reggie Wayne Show this season, and wanted to thank all of you that came out to see him.
