“I’m A Boring Guy, Most Of The Time”

July 6th, 2014

mike evans 0517It sure seems like the great Bucs receiving hope, rookie Mike Evans, is not the kind of guy who will live in a fancy rented house with a bunch of friends and family, launch a rap group, install a stripper pole, and host blowout house parties culminating in the front lawn looking like Tempur-Pedic showroom.

No, Evans likes quiet.

In this NFL.com video titled “Rookie Confessional,” Evans gives his impressions of “quiet” Tampa and says that suits him perfectly. “I’m a boring guy, most of the time,” he said.

The video also shares other nuggets and, overall, sort of reinforces that Evans is a boring guy.

And that’s just fine. All Evans has to do is catch the football like Mike Williams did during his rookie year, and Tampa Bay fans will sleep awfully well at night and gobble up Evans jerseys like Joe eats Tums while watching film of the 2012 Bucs secondary.

    I must confess I’m amused by the reactions to Mike Glennon on this board. It seems there is very little middle ground.

    Either the posters hate him or they love him as card carrying members of the MGM.

    Is there not a “balanced view”? How about he started his rookie year for a team in horrible disarray from MRSA to horrid coaching to a bad OL and a limited number of targets. He had some success and some failure. He looked like a ROOKIE!!!

    I do not see Glennon one way or another. I can’t write him off as a loser based on his limited opportunity with a HORRIBLE TEAM…plenty of blame to go around…nor am I ready to anoint him as the franchise QB based on a game out in Seattle where the Seahawks took more than a half to wakeup and begin playing football. Doesn’t it make sense to take a longer look before we all jump on or off the Glennon bandwagon? Just sayin’.

    I agree with you 100%
    Unfortunately this is the internet, the land of opinions with out consequences. So if we are looking for rational though we are looking in the wrong places.

    You mean we won’t find Evans partying with Justin Bieber! Funny how Joe shows and reports on every John Manziel pic and story imaginable in his Morning Cup of Joe EXCEPT the one of John and Justin.

    StPete- there are plenty of us that are not on either end but you wouldn’t know it by the reactions from those you talk about. I don’t think Joe hates MG8 but has been fair in critisism and tempered expectations. He could end up being good or he could be terrible. Not going to know that until we see much more but it is not unreasonable to have low expectations after watching him last year.

    I think the Glennon thing started off in middle ground. Most just wanted to give the kid a chance but as the hate grew and the unnecessary amount of articles that did nothing but poke and taunt anyone that liked the kid, more and more people jumped on his side. Dont really think anyone thinks he’s a franchise QB yet, but I’m pulling for the kid!

    Glennon has had his baptism by fire. It’s hard to imagine a worse possible situation for ANY QB, much less a rookie. He’s now going to get what he should have had last year, a place on the bench learning behind an experienced veteran with a professional coaching staff. The Bucs will transition from a QB who can handle it now to a QB who will be better prepared to handle it in the future. I’m confident that will happen and that Evans will be a huge part of it. After more than a decade of dramatic, I’m looking forward to little quiet. Save the excitement for Sunday afternoons.

    This kinda of reminds me of an interview I saw with Wil Meyers when he was first called up. When asked to share something about himself that most people wouldnt know, he said “umm… I watch a lot of movies on netflix.”

    There is something very comforting knowing Evans isn’t the Josh Gordon/Pacman Jones type

    You hit the nail right on the head right there. I think part of the polarization is where people stand on having no issue waiting around for almost 5 years for a physically talented 1st round QB pick to finally realize his potential yet being unwilling to wait 1 season for a 3rd round guy who showed some good plays as well as some rookie mistakes in the 13 games he started. Then there’s the stupid “he looks like a giraffe not a franchise QB” stuff smh

  11. ToesOnTheLine Says:

    Hopefully Evans is boring off the field and lightning in a bottle on the field.

  12. b.Bruce Says:

    is this Mike and Ike or Mike and Mike for a record touchdown pass Manning smiley in the audience.

  13. Matt Says:

    What you didn’t pick up is the correlation between his “boring” personality being in sync with the “boring” city. That was the implication.

  14. Jon Says:

    Fat and boring. Perfect. Doesn’t sound like a future all-pro to me

  15. INDYbucsfan Says:

    Jon would you rather have petite and reckless first round pick? Like joes old butt lover and biebers new one?

  16. Buccfan37 Says:

    Evans will get acclimated to the just out of college boring atmosphere here in the bay area. He is probably homesick and it was mentioned by a post awhile back through a friend of a friend of Evans that he did’nt want to be drafted by Tampa Bay. I believe that to be the case.

  17. BucPuck Says:

    Love the Richard Sherman comment. Man wants to go against the best, that’s the kind of player I want! Mark my words, Mike Evans will be a beast in the pewter and red!

  18. stratobuc Says:

    Very refreshing. Welcome to Tampa, Mike Evans. I think you will grow to like it here, especially when we start winning.

  19. pick6 Says:

    tampa’s not all that quiet unless you want it to be, although i’m glad mike evans’ #1 hobby seems to be working to become a standout pro. just politely decline if raheem morris or josh freeman offer to show you around town

    As long as he’s not boring on the field.
