Jerry Rice is the greatest wide receiver, ever. For a time, it looked as if Colts receiver Marvin Harrison could break or tie some of Rice's long-standing records. However, a knee injury in 2007 robbed Harrison of his signature speed, and two years later he was out of football after 13 years in the league. One area where Marvin always seemed to struggle was post-season play. He had 65 catches for 883 yards and two touchdowns in the playoffs during his long career.
The man who spent 8 of those 13 years playing second-fiddle to Marvin was Reggie Wayne. Today, Wayne is the mentor, working with young receivers much the same way Marvin worked with him. Unlike Harrison, Wayne has had some of his biggest moments in the post-season, and Sunday's 9-catch, 114 yard performance only added to his legacy.
One of Jerry Rice's most amazing accomplishments are his 151 catches in his 29 career playoff games. Th tops, all-time in the post-season. No. 2 on that list? Reggie Wayne.
Per Michael David Smith of PFT, Wayne's 9 catches Sunday put him ahead of the Cowboys receiver Michael Irvin and Steelers wideout Hines Ward, into second place on the all-time in the playoffs with 92 grabs in 18 playoff games.
It goes without saying, but we'll say it anyway, Reggie Wayne is amazing.
