Mike Evans Inspired By Randy Moss

Mike Evans was moved by a Randy Moss documentary he watched last night

The Twitter feed of the Buccaneers’ media relations department was blowing up Joe’s phone today with all the Twitters they were putting out.

They were busy, thanks to Mike Evans.

The Tampa Bay rookie wide receiver did something the NFL hasn’t seen since the great Randy Moss was a rookie.

Mike Evans has posted three consecutive games with at least 100 yards and one TD, first rookie to do so since Randy Moss (1998).

Whoa. That’s how dangerous Evans was today, how lethal. Of course, knucklehead Redskins defensive coordinator Jim Haslett somehow thought putting a linebacker on Evans was a smart move. That was the dumbest thing Joe has seen since Adrian Clayborn covered Darren Sproles in pass coverage.

After the game on the Buccaneers Radio Network, Evans seemed humbled by the comparison to Moss, yet admitted watching a documentary last night on Moss inspired him.

“Last night I watched “Rand University,” Evans said of the BSPN 30/30 documentary on Moss. “He inspired me.”

“It’s been fun watching his development,” Bucs coach Lovie Smith said of Evans on the Bucs radio network.

Maybe Lovie needs to find other sports documentaries to get the Bucs ready to play the night before every game. Might want to have Michael Johnson watch the NFL Network documentary on Reggie White.

    And people thought we should have drafted Johnny Football instead. I always wanted Evans and man has that paid off.

    Johnny 8Ball’s ability to pull is because Evans got him laid by making him good.

    @Ray For the record…I said that some people wanted Johnny Football but I’m not going to disrespect Joe on his site. I love this site and love Joe’s passion even if I think he’s wrong. Not cool bro!

    It was very nice to see a rookie have a terrific game without all the cocky ignorant stuff after the catches

  11. Ray Rice Says:


    No one ever said JOE. There were plenty of people on this site who wanted coke head Johnny. And yes JOE was one of them. But if you read my posts you would know that every time i go at JOE I say his name.

  12. Ray Rice Says:

    Especially when it’s about his Man Beef ASJ

  13. OB Says:

    We are getting there with VJax, Mike, ASJ and Simms in there at the same time, if the OL blocks and MCCown can see them, he should find the one that is open.

    The punter was also punting for a change but the punt receiver needs help.

    You won’t find anything more silly than putting Adrian Clayborn covered Darren Sproles in pass coverage but hey that’s the idiotic coach you want back.
