Mike Evans Approved

April 30th, 2015

Check your damn pulse if you’re not jacked up by the thought of Jameis Winston throwing balls to 1000-yard receiver Mike Evans.

Both are 21 years old!

Joe’s been hot in the pants about this combination every since Lovie Smith friend Kevin Sumlin, the Texas A&M head coach, hopped on BSPN and proclaimed — on January 7 — that he knows Evans would love to have Winston be his quarterback.

Keep in mind Sumlin doesn’t blow a bunch of hot air, and he’s a friend of Lovie Smith.

It was Sumlin’s recommendation (for one of his 2013 stars) that played a huge role in the Bucs drafting Evans.

Joe realizes leaky, sleepy Josh Freeman and mattress-in-the-yard Mike Williams were a sizzling NFL combination in Williams’ rookie year, Freeman’s second season. They set a high bar — on a winning team. But the new dynamic duo has the skills and potential to blow them away.

    Mike Evans is going to be catching balls all over the field, no doubt. He will surpass last years reception and yardage numbers. Go Bucs!!

    So if ME13 made Johnny Football, what can he do for Winston? It will be fun to find out.

    I recorded both ESPN and NFL Network. NFL Network had full coverage including Winston’s reaction with his family. After the pick was announced, all the ESPN analyist just looked down at their papers and Berman took them to Mariota. ESPN obviously made a corporate decision to not cover Winston. They never even showed any highlights after the pick. NFL Network covered the reaction and later interviewed Winston. NFL Network also had reporters at the stadium covering Tampa from there. I am so disappointed with ESPN I may have to remove their site from my browser bookmarks. No big loss as there site sucks anyway after their web redesign.

    Dream big: Yep. ESPN is basically geared toward women. Every time I stumble on their media, it’s an outraged morality tangent over some non-sports issue. They’re probably making some statement.

    Well they will be showing a lot of highlights of #3 to #13, That they can stop.
