Reggie Wayne: Blame the Colts’ front office, not Andrew Luck

Andrew Luck,  Reggie Wayne AP

The Colts are 1-3 this year and 3-9 in Andrew Luck’s last 12 starts at quarterback. But if you think that’s Luck’s fault, one of the greatest players in Colts history says you’re looking at the wrong guy.

Reggie Wayne, the longtime Colt who was Luck’s No. 1 receiver in his rookie year, said on NFL Network that the real culprit in Indianapolis is a front office that hasn’t put enough talent around Luck.

“A lot of people are wanting to criticize Andrew Luck instead of really in my opinion going after what the big problem is,” Wayne said. “I think that big problem is a lot of the front office decisions.”

Wayne makes a good point: It’s not Luck’s fault that the Colts’ defense stinks. Colts G.M. Ryan Grigson lucked out when he inherited the first overall pick in the draft in 2012, but Grigson has not done a good job of building a team around his franchise quarterback. Until that changes, there’s only so much Luck can do.

    Excuses.

  3. Ron Jull says: Oct 5, 2016 9:01 AM

    Now that the rest of the division is beginning to play decent football the Colts don’t have their 6 free wins and easy as pie division titles anymore. Luck has always been vastly over rated, and now he is vastly over paid as well. Going to be a long time before the Colts contend again, you might even say goood “Luck” with that.

    In a not-so-distant alternate universe, Ryan Grigson is a junior manager at a tire store in Ft. Wayne, and was just put on his final written warning for excessive workplace flatulence.

  5. patsxsaintsfan says: Oct 5, 2016 9:02 AM

    Andrew luck is a top 10 QB he can make every throw and is very mobile the problem is that he can’t carry his team. In his first 3 years he got better and better every year and won close games. In the last 2 years the team just isn’t getting those lucky breaks and the defense has gotten much worse. Luck has a Bottom 5 offensive line and he isnt good enough to carry a team this bad. That falls directly on grigson for not being able to draft effectively and slightly on pagano for not being able to coach the players on the roster (not that it’s easy to make bad players look good but you have to work with what you have). If I’m Andrew luck I would’ve never resigned with Indy and would’ve gone to the FA market and signed with Denver or whoever needs a QB in 3 years and has a solid defense and above average o line

  6. afty2001 says: Oct 5, 2016 9:04 AM

    As a Colts fan, this organization has become an absolute joke. Poor drafting, poor coaching, ruining the franchise QB. Between 13-14 drafts, there are 2 players left. Absolutely pathetic what this organization has become.

    “Colts G.M. Ryan Grigson lucked out when he inherited the first overall pick in the draft in 2012..”

    WRONG! LUCK had nothing to do with it.

    The cheating DOLTs threw an ENTIRE season to land the #1 pick in the draft.

    a MORE EGREGIOUS, CHEATING CONSPIRACY THE SPORTING WORLD HAS NEVER SEEN.
    DESPICABLE ORGANIZATION

  9. afty2001 says: Oct 5, 2016 9:09 AM

    Oh yeah and it’s standard to hear this crap from Pagano every press conference: “We are two or three plays away from being 4-0”. Which they aren’t because they don’t start playing until the second half when they finally decide to go no huddle yet they refuse to do it early in the game.

  10. zerotrophiessince1961 says: Oct 5, 2016 9:10 AM

    Dear Vikings fans: When you say that Green Bay is declining and has an awful team around him, you clearly don’t know what you are talking about. THIS is what an awful team around a great QB looks like.

  11. razzlejag says: Oct 5, 2016 9:11 AM

    Ryan Grigson (and, to a lesser extent, Chuck Pagano) have put the Titans and the Jaguars right into the AFC South race.

    Don’t worry Reggie……people do.

    Why Luck resigned with the Colts is a mystery. What a waste.

  15. kurdishpats1 says: Oct 5, 2016 9:13 AM

    Outside of T.Y. Hilton, this team has not drafted a decent player.

    And the Suck for Luck campaign should have cost them draft picks.

  16. charliecharger says: Oct 5, 2016 9:13 AM

    Sour grapes from a disgruntled veteran who got cut by the Colts’ front office, and now he’s lashing out. He went to New England and Belichick cut him in a second. He was gracious enough to let Reggie “retire”. Nobody else picked him up. The Colts actually kept Reggie around way too long and it hurt the team. I didn’t hear Reggie complaining about that. This team beat Denver last year, and went into overtime against Carolina. They were in the AFC championship the year before. You don’t do that without talent. Reggie Wayne was an average WR who benefitted from having Peyton Manning and Andrew Luck his entire career.

  17. 6ball says: Oct 5, 2016 9:14 AM

    .
    If they put the entire Colts roster on waivers, besides Luck, how many players would you take to be on your teams roster? A handful, maybe? Bottom line is : their roster sucks.

  18. losingisnotanoption says: Oct 5, 2016 9:15 AM

    Grigson and Irsay are more concerned about finding ways to make the Patriots less competitive instead of making the Colts more competitive.

    Tell us something we don’t know.

  20. QB Film Room says: Oct 5, 2016 9:16 AM

    Its both of them. Luck is not a beat you pre-snap QB. He extends plays too much, which brings success and failure. He takes too many hits because of this and plays out of Rhythm

  21. wvuandsteelers says: Oct 5, 2016 9:16 AM

    Then if that is true (which I agree it is), then blame the owner for giving the coach and GM new contracts rather than starting over.

  22. maust1013 says: Oct 5, 2016 9:16 AM

    “Grigson has not done a good job of building a team around his franchise quarterback.”

    That’s like saying the Titanic didn’t do a good job making it to NY. But Grigson’s got nothing on the owner that extended his contract

  23. lightcleric says: Oct 5, 2016 9:17 AM

    Their offensive line is also godawful. The thing is they couldn’t build a solid team around Luck on his cheap rookie contract; how the heck are they going to manage it with his new one?

  24. internetcommenter7 says: Oct 5, 2016 9:20 AM

    Luck hasn’t gotten an overwhelming amount of help but if you still haven’t figured out that he is overrated (which isn’t to say he’s not good) then you haven’t been paying attention

  25. ojordonez says: Oct 5, 2016 9:20 AM

    I disagree. Luck could have said, “Instead of making me the highest paid player ever, take some money and upgrade the D for me”.

  26. heisthejuan says: Oct 5, 2016 9:21 AM

    Owner/GM situation is rough for the Colts. Franchise had a long dark period before Peyton. Looks like they’re heading back that way.

  27. factschecker says: Oct 5, 2016 9:21 AM

    When you spend all your teams top draft picks trying to prop up your “once in a generation QB” with offensive talent then it kind of is your QB’s fault.

    Teams like NE, Pitt and Seattle spend their resources on the defense and let their star QB’s make chicken salad out of chicken crap on offense. You can’t have it both ways. You can’t spend all your cap and high draft picks on offense and expect to have a decent defense. If you truly have a great QB then you should be able to toss them a bunch of middle round to undrafted free agents and say “Hey great one, use your greatness and go make this work so we can spend all of our cap space and draft picks on the defense.

  28. maestro1899 says: Oct 5, 2016 9:22 AM

    Anyone watching football on TV knows that the front office has continually dropped the ball.

    Ridiculous draft picks, ridiculous FA signings, a terrible oline, a terrible run game, a terrible defense. And the one position the Colts thought they had figured out (WR) is terrible right now as they don’t have an effective WR over 5’10” tall and they used a 1st round pick a year ago on a guy (Dorsett) who had never even cleared 800 yards in college!

    Nice job, Irsay! You too, Grigson!

  29. atthemurph says: Oct 5, 2016 9:23 AM

    Reggie gets it. Grigson is in over his head.

    Peyton Manning masked alot of issues with that franchise. I wish Luck the best of Luck trying to follow that up, while the owner is driving around with a bag full of cash, drunk twitting.

  32. bum65 says: Oct 5, 2016 9:26 AM

    Big Sweaty is always trying to find the diamond in the rough or the underdog which is OK when you do it in the 6th and 7th rounds not the 1st-3rd. Also history has taught us that you can’t get your QB pummeled. He should have been drafting lineman Luck’s first 2 years instead of skill position players.

  33. jetsclaps says: Oct 5, 2016 9:27 AM

    How did Grigson and Pagano get extensions? What have they done outside of drafting Andrew Luck, a decision any casual football fan could have made?

  34. rowech44 says: Oct 5, 2016 9:30 AM

    that’s because instead of doing things a good GM would do to surround Luck with a decent team – lil’ spoiled brat Ryan was too busy cryin’ that Tommy let’s air out of the ball – wah wah wah! they beat us 45-7 because 1lb psi came out of the ball. We must defy science and band together and get Tommy off our playground – wah wah wah…. That took a lot of effort to come up with that silliness with all the other crybaby owners, NFL execs, etc that supported FrameGate. Go Colts Go!!! Quite a program you run there – from the owner on down… Well the good news is you don’t have to get your annual Pats whooping this year…

  36. LyinRogerMustGo says: Oct 5, 2016 9:32 AM

    It seems Luck’s problems started the day the NFL started checking for PSI in footballs. Coincidence?

  37. jeyeeteesjetsjetsjets says: Oct 5, 2016 9:33 AM

    Wayne is absolutely right. I don’t care if you are Tom Brady, Aaron Rodgers, or Peyton Manning. It would be damn near impossible to win, much less even stay healthy with the supporting cast Grigson has supplied the Colts with.

    Think about this, Andrew Luck has never had a decent o-line, run game, or defense ranked in the top 20 to alleviate some pressure. This is year FIVE for Luck. The Colts have wasted half a decade of his career, and he still brought them to within one game of the Super Bowl.

    If Luck had any kind of infrastructure around him, he would be unquestionably a top 5 quarterback. Russell Wilson was asked to score around 18-22pts a game in his first three years, that was good enough for multiple Super Bowl berths. Luck could have easily done the same if given the same opportunity.

    why, they’ve proven they’d just throw it away because they have no talent for judging talent. It’s not a money problem, it’s a draft pick problem. Trent Richardson ring a bell?

  39. megnailsit says: Oct 5, 2016 9:38 AM

    Obviously Luck knew all of this when he signed his new deal. And that Grigson and Pagano were given extensions. What did he expect? And how did he think his hefty contract was going to affect the front office’s ability to build a better team? If he’s so smart, quit making excuses for his decisions. 4th and a 1/2 anyone?

    The Patriots fan conspiracy theory is that those guys were complicit in setting up the Patriots in the AFC championship game in 2014 and Irsay couldn’t just dump them right in the middle of the whole thing.

    I’m not trying to say the Patriots are innocent, I’m saying it was a sting starting with D’Qwell Jackson catching the ball and later saying he didn’t notice anything wrong with it.

    Their knowledge of how the whole thing was started was enough of a reason for Irsay to throw them a bone.

  41. footballfanatic says: Oct 5, 2016 9:42 AM

    well u get top picks by having a bad team, so every top qb pick deals with this. Is it front offices fault he has career playoff stats of 9 tds to 12 ints? or a playoff rating of 70?

  42. ragnarthegreat says: Oct 5, 2016 9:47 AM

    The GM has more to do with the success of the team than the players or coaches, yet those are the folks who take the fall when things don’t go well. The GM needs to bring in quality players who fit the scheme the coaches want to run. There is an overall lack of talent in Indy that isn’t being addressed. Luck can’t overcome that. Either kind of “Luck”.

  43. weepingjebus says: Oct 5, 2016 9:48 AM

    Grigson helps me keep hope alive for a O Brother sequel. “I don’t want Sio god d——, I’m a dapper Luck man!” “I’m going to be a GM! I know this guy who’ll print me up a license.” “She counted to 1-3!”

    been saying this forever. colts front office has been terrible for 20 years. Peyton should have had 5 superbowls. Polian was great as recognizing star talent (mathis, wayne, harrison) – terrible at filling the holes with the mediocre to abvoe-average guys and depth that every team needs to win a superbowl. Grigson sucks at recognizing any talent whatsoever

    The sad thing is that Tony Romo got no sympathy from anyone, during all those years, just bashing!!!! Now that we do have some help in the trenches, he has been injured😦. AND, people wonder why..smh

  49. factschecker says: Oct 5, 2016 9:57 AM

    It’s not Luck’s fault that the Colts’ defense stinks.
    ——
    And the majority of the posts are saying “We should draft more offensive linemen!” That will help their defense. Sure it will.

  50. 6thsense10 says: Oct 5, 2016 10:01 AM

    The offensive line is one of the worse in the league.

    The defense sucks.

    T.Y. Hilton while a very good receiver has no business being the team’s number 1 receiver. He is a very important weapon but not a 1.

    Frank Gore is a borderline HOF but at 33 has no business being your lead back and it doesn’t appear there’s a young back on the roster who can take over the roll.

    Speaking of young backs the front office wasted a 1st round pick trading it away for Trent Richardson who had already proven to be a failure in Cleveland.

    Most, if not all thr blamr for the state the team is in today falls squarely on the GMs and maybe owner’s shoulders.

  51. supra23 says: Oct 5, 2016 10:01 AM

  56. tajuara says: Oct 5, 2016 10:16 AM

    As a long time Colts fan I can say that the owner’s mentality is that as long as the team has a competent QB, the team may make wonders. This is not recent and has been dragged since the Manning days in Indy. Unfortunately this is not working out and the team is in shambles. But Reggie forgot to mention Pagano as a guilty party (probably because they are friends?). Pagano came to Indy to build a strong defense to resemble the Baltimore strong defenses, yet the defense can’t even tackle let alone accomplish anything. Bellichick can pick a guy from the street and turn him into a super star, Pagano can pick a super star and make him a bum.

  57. intrafinesse says: Oct 5, 2016 10:17 AM

    The owner (Irsay) deserves the blame because he saw how terrible the front office/HC were and extended them.

    If you hire someone to do a job, and they are terrible at it, and you keep them on, you are the one with the problem.

    Too bad for Colts fans.

  58. trailerparkking says: Oct 5, 2016 10:22 AM

  60. pioniere says: Oct 5, 2016 10:42 AM

    Karma. Their recent failings have everything to do with Karma.

  64. lacolem1 says: Oct 5, 2016 10:51 AM

    People are quick to absolve him of ANY blame, though. There are 2-4 possessions a game where Luck does something headscratching, usually in the first half, that keeps points off the board and costs the Colts a victory later. Sure, he also has a mediocre defense and a crappy line, but that’s been a problem in Indy for a good portion of 17 years now.

  65. codythao35 says: Oct 5, 2016 10:52 AM

    Packers are still declining, Rodgers no longer can carry the team just like the Colts.

  66. codythao35 says: Oct 5, 2016 10:54 AM

    Remember when the Colts extended the head coach’s contract? Well, every one else thought they should have fired him. Bad decisions by the front office too.

  67. bencoates57 says: Oct 5, 2016 11:01 AM

    The Colts have had a favorable schedule as well. Except for the Broncos, the Colts had the Chargers (nearly losing that one as well), the Jaguars, and the Lions (in Indianapolis). They should be 3 ans 1 and maybe 4 and 0 considering they were 8 and 2 in their last 10 against the Broncos. This is hardly the Jets schedule. Sad. The bad karma from deflategate continues.

    A running game is a QBs best friend. The colts have had ONE 100 YARD RUSHING GAME SINCE 2012 (If Im not mistaken). They haven’t even drafted a good running back. The defense could help the QB but they lack the personnel to do so. They have NO cornerbacks!! The Offensive line has been awful, and he’s a former offensive lineman. He’s been there 5 years and outside of Andrew Luck (who hasn’t played great in about a year) and TY hilton, what impact player has he drafted??? He traded a first round pick less than 2 years ago for someone who is no longer in the NFL. He drafted Werner who is no longer in the NFL. He is absolutely horrible as an evaluator but he has managed to keep his million dollar job!

  73. teal379 says: Oct 5, 2016 11:16 AM

    The GM definitely sucks
    The Coach most likely sucks

    They have not drafted well but that doesn’t change the fact that the talent that is or isn’t put around Luck aren’t the players that have turned the ball over like he is.

    58 INTs
    16 lost fumbles

    59 games

    1.25 turnovers a game – Luck is responsible for that and compared to say Aaron Rodgers, another QB that people like to put together as comparable for talent – Aaron’s rate is .68 turn overs a game. Or about 1/2 as much as Luck.

    Blaming everyone but the QB for underachieving is, as we all know, the Colts Way.

    Of course, to be fair, Grigson, Pagano and the Colts ownership are awful.

  76. 6ball says: Oct 5, 2016 11:37 AM

    .
    My favorite Ryan Grigson draft story :

    With the Colts on the clock with pick #29, the Patriots tell the assembled media that they will trade their first round pick, #32, to Houston and therefore they should wrap it up and go home.

    Then Griggy passes on stud DT Malcolm Brown in favor of WR, Philip (the brittle dwarf) Dorsett.

    Belichick then cancels the trade with Houston, drafts Brown and in his second year has become the Patriots top DT.

    I guess Griggy figured the last thing the Colts needed was a big bodied, run stuffer clogging up the middle.

  77. kingpel says: Oct 5, 2016 11:41 AM

    Coaching. Luck needs to stop taking so many chances with the football. He is trying to do too much.

    Only one problem with your theory. Where u draft a player doesn’t really make a difference. If he sucks then he sucks whether 1st or 6 th rounder. They can ‘build up the team all around him’ as u say but the gm is drafting crap players then who cares

  79. varangia says: Oct 5, 2016 12:03 PM

  82. Waffle 2.0 says: Oct 5, 2016 12:18 PM

    Luck is elite so he should be able to carry the team on his shoulders no matter what other deficiencies exist.
    That is what elite players do. They singlehandedly take on and defeat entire football teams and do it while leading their fantasy owners to victory.

    Ok so you go out and get the top pick in the draft and then your a cheap as who does not go out and get the best O line to protect him. Sounds like Ted Thompson fiasco as well.
    Ted lets two pro bowlers go because he doesnt want to pay them and replaces them with bums who cant do the job.
    Luck has no, zero time to throw and let the play develop. I agree don’t blame him for this mess.

    One need look no further than the 2015 NFL draft where the Colts took a small receiver in Dorsett (not a position of need) and three picks later the Pats took Malcolm Brown who will be a mainstay on the defensive line for ten years plus. Team wrecking versus team building. Grigson is clueless.

    Polian and Manning ran the show for the incompetent Irsay for many years. Once they left, Irsay threw the season to get Luck. He then has a misfire with the Grigson hire. Factor in Pagono and Grigson do not get along is another rip in the fabric. Pagano is responsible for some pretty embarrassing coaching mishaps (Fake punt with Griff Whalen). The terrible high draft picks Grigson has blown (Bjorn Werner). Stupid trade for Trent Richardson for a 1st round pick should have more than sealed Grigson’s fate. Pagano, who is such a defensive mind has a terrible defense.

    The entire organization with the one bright spot (Andrew Luck), is in shambles. If anything happened to this guy, it would be catastrophic for the franchise. I don’t want to hear Luck is overrated and that a true franchise qb makes chicken salad out of chicken poo. Pittsburgh is loaded with offensive weapons, multiple pro-bowl offensive lineman and an up and coming defense with a seasoned gm. Seattle also has a top gm and solid coaching and up until this year, a top flight running back. New England has the greatest mind in the game since Parcells.

    It’s obvious this team was destined to fail once Irsay made another of the countless blunders under his rule when he signed both of these baffoon’s to extensions. It’s criminal to allow the NFL’s highest paid player to be exposed week in and week out by mediocre talent around him and incompetent ownership.

    Bill Polian also had horrible drafts and awful defenses but Peyton put them over the top.

    Maybe mouthbreather Grigson should have spent more time working with scouts and drafting better, as opposed to conjuring up ways to frame NFL players with the commissioner on Park Ave, to cheat and to commit consumer fraud?

    Maybe he should have put more focus into that sort of thing, huh?

    Colts need to start over in the front office. I don’t know how they ever expected to compete with that offensive line, and that’s not even factoring in the entire defense.

    Dear Vikings fans: When you say that Green Bay is declining and has an awful team around him, you clearly don’t know what you are talking about. THIS is what an awful team around a great QB looks like.
    ————
    The difference between the Colts and Green Bay is that with the Colts, this has been happening for Manning’s last 5 years in Indianapolis. It was his ability to know what the defense was going to do before the snap and his quick release that even kept them contenders while he was there. The Packers appear to be in a similar situation, where everything else is going downhill, albeit a bit more slowly, but Rodgers is good enough to compensate. Also, the Packers do have a better front office than the Colts, but they still have not been doing well.

    Russell Wilson has been sacked and hit more than any qb in the league during his career. Seattles OL is garbage. The offense had a bunch of UDFA nobodies at WR. Yet Wilson is out there with two injured legs, throwing to nobody, and putting up HoF performances.

    Luck was always overrated. He had the biggest OL in college and made his name running over tiny Pac-12 defenders. Sucked in big games against the SEC and NFL quality defenses. Can’t stay healthy in the NFL. Can’t win in the postseason.

    At some point, you gotta see reality for what it is. Luck was TERRIBLE last season. He’s been terrible this season. Dude throws more INTs than Kaeperpick. Keep making excuses. Luck is another Jake Locker. Indy failed when it threw a season for him. Yall shoulda been paying attention instead of buying the hype. Every Pac12 fan saw the truth along time ago.
