The Colts Authority:
Reggie Wayne could have joined historic NFL greats with another 1,000 yard season. Instead he got this nightmare of a season. Luckily he's got a support system to keep him going:
So, the frustration builds, and nearly spilled out of every pore two weeks ago in the 17-3 loss to Jacksonville. His first reception came with less than two minutes remaining in the third quarter. It gained zero yards. By game's end, he had just three catches for 13 yards. He had been targeted only six times by quarterbacks Curtis Painter and Dan Orlovsky.
Wayne admitted he has had to fight the urge to give anyone within earshot an earful, go all Keyshawn Johnson and scream, "Just give me the damn ball!"
Peta-Gay, his wife, won't allow it. Neither will sons Rosean, 8; Reggie Jr., 2; and Rayden, 3 months.

ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting that if the standings stay the way they are now, the Colts will indeed go ahead and draft Andrew Luck with the top overall pick in April's draft.
Paul Kuharsky thinks Don Brown has played himself into a good situation:
What I wonder: Will the Colts allow Donald Brown, who ran well with 80 yards and a TD on 14 carries, increased chances? Any doghouse issues from his early failures should be well behind him. Hand it to him a bunch and see how he can do.
Tight end Dallas Clark is among the inactive Colts for Sunday's game against Carolina.
Clark is out with an injured left fibula. Jacob Tamme will start for him.
Curtis Painter remains the starting quarterback in place of Peyton Manning (neck) and Mike Tepper will start for right guard Joe Reitz (knee).
Other inactive Colts are tight end Brody Eldridge, defensive tackle Drake...
The good news for the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday was that it was the first game in a while where there was a sense that the team had a chance to gain their elusive first win. The bad news is that the team lost in the same way it has done in close games all [...]
The Colts will reportedly draft Andrew Luck if they end up with the first overall selection in the 2012 NFL draft. The Colts are expected to hand off their franchise from Peyton Manning to Luck, ESPN.com's Adam Schefter reports. With the Colts sitting at 0-11 with a two-game "lead" over the Vikings and Rams in the "Suck for Luck" sweepstakes, it's very...
INACTIVES DE Mario Addison: Addison being a new addition is an understandable addition to the inactive list. Also seeing as Brayton, Anderson, and Hughes are healthy, a 6th DE is a tad excessive. QB Peyton Manning: Manning continues to rehab, and still has not been cleared. He will continue to sit out. TE Dallas Clark: [...]
Ben Maller (@BenMaller) says that Chris Myers has some prognostication on Manning's chances at return:
Fox's Chris Myers reporting on FSR, after speaking with Colts Peyton Manning in Indy, he feels better than 50% chance Manning retires.
That's the bottom line for the Colts after their latest disaster.
Cam Newton passed for 208 yards and ran for one touchdown and DeAngelo Williams scored twice to help the Panthers hold off Indy 27-19 on Sunday.
The Colts are 0-11 for the first time since 1986 and have lost six home games in a season for only the sixth time since moving from Baltimore in 1984...
The Indianapolis Colts are a sad, mopey, miserable football team that aggressively drains the life force out of anyone who watches them play because they want them to win.
Still, people expect them to be on television, which raises an interesting question: At what point does a local network television affiliate have a social responsibility to not show something that makes people...
Bill Polian didn't sound like a man about to lose his franchise quarterback Monday night. A caller to his radio show asked about the "grim" outlook regarding Peyton Manning's future conveyed by the television crew working the Indianapolis Colts game with the Carolina Panthers on Sunday.
After promising to start a new ProCanes touchdown streak earlier in the week, the Indianapolis Colts' Pro Bowl wide receiver came through in the clutch against Carolina.
