“We’re Going To Be Explosive”

August 6th, 2015
Bucs WR Mike Evans talks about the Dirk Koetter offense.

Mike Evans talks about the Dirk Koetter offense.

A pretty cool Mike Evans interview by Charley Casserly aired Tuesday on NFL Network. And Evans isn’t really known for giving decent interviews.

Evans talked a bit about the Bucs offense. Casserly couldn’t quite get details, but Evans basically stated if you want to get a window in the Bucs offense this season, watch tape of the Dixie Chicks from last year.

“We’re going to be explosive,” Evans said. “I like Julio Jones a lot.”

Also, when Evans was asked about “America’s Quarterback,” Bucs signal-caller Jameis Winston, Evans couldn’t stop smiling talking about Jameis’ gun. Evans noted that he can out run Jameis, but he can’t always outrun his cannon-like deep ball.

Even Joe was getting excited watching the interview.

    I just hope that they can be productive at all times of the game, And not just when they are behind on the score board and the other team has switched to a soft coverage!!! Just looking at the run to pass ratio will reveal the skewed passing numbers!!!

    Just remember that diarrhea can be “explosive” as well!!!!

    Michael Clayton and Mike Williams looked pretty awesome in their rookie seasons too. Let’s see Evans repeat what he did last year before we start talking about how he’s on the way to passing Julio Frickin’ Jones.

    I want to see some 80 yard bombs this season!

  5. Nole on Sat.-Bucc on Sun. Says:

    Rob with all due respect this particular Mike is cut from a different cloth then what those other two were. ME has that anger and passion in him. I never recalled seeing that in Clayton or Williams.

  6. CreamsicleBananaHammock Says:

    I totally agree with Rob — to be a superstar in this league (which is what we’re all ready to crown ME as being) you have to be consistent

    The streets are littered with 1000 yard receivers who did it one year and then disappeared

    I think it’s more likely ME becomes that star, but I’m still jaded after watching Clayton and Williams implode after one good year

    was never meant Evans>Jones

    This statement was in regards to the effect of Dirk Koetter on our offense and the absence of Dirk Koetter for the Falcons Offense. This was a Mike Evans article afterall, but generically speaking

    BUCS Offense ^
    Falcons Offense v

  8. OklahomaBucFan Says:

    I agree with Nole. Mike Evans is cut from a far different cloth than the other two. His time with Moss in the offseason is partial proof of that. I think we can rest easy when it comes to 13. He’ll have even more yards this year.

  9. Buccfan37 Says:

    The Saints look like they’re gearing up to attempt to stop Evans impact. Brandon Browner, a 6 foot 4, 221 pound D back who likes to bully receivers is listed with the most improved secondaries in the league, lower down on today’s page articles.

    If Evans can stay healthy, we got a soon to be top five type of player.

    I watch the Falcons a lot, I moved to Atlanta from Lakeland in 1985. And while Dirk Koetter was the OC, there was 2 plays that always were successful and explosive, and they always involve the same player. It was that draw play to Antone Smith, and it was the short pass out in the flats to Antone Smith. I have been a Buc fan since 1976 when Hugh Culverhouse was awarded the expansion franchise. And I have never seen the Bucs OC call those type of plays, we don’t have a back with Antone Smith speed. But those plays and similar plays could work for us, with Bobby Rainey as the back. Bobby Rainey caught 33 passes for us last season in a part time role, and this season he will have a part time role also. Maybe with 25 receptions, Doug Martin caught 49 passes as a rookie, Charles Sims caught 19 passes in 8 games last season. I see Dirk Koetter mixing it up, it will be totally different from last season, when VJAX and Mike Evans got all of the looks. Dirk Koetter protected Matt Ryan with his playcalling, but one stat stands out from the rest. And that stat is the Falcons had 5 different RB’S(including the fullback) to catch a pass last season, and they had 102 pass receptions. This is the main reason why I can’t see Jameis Winston failing and I don’t see Marcus Mariota having a better season than Jameis. The Bucs have better offensive minds in the right position, the Titans have a better coaching staff, but they are not in the right position.

    After the Michael Vick dog scandal, the Falcons hit rock bottom. Bobby Petrino quit on them and they finish 4-12, in 2008 they hired Mike Smith as Head Coach, Mike Mularkey as OC and they drafted Matt Ryan with the 3rd pick in the 2008 draft. Mike Mularkey said they needed a RB to protect the rookie, so they signed Michael Turner from the Chargers. Michael Turner ran for 1699 yards and Jerious Norwood ran for 500 more as a change of pace back, and Roddy White(who had never did anything while Vick was the QB) caught 88 passes for 1382 yds. And the Falcons went 11-5 and won the division with a rookie QB, who had threw 19 picks as a senior at Boston College. And all the so-call experts questioned the Matt Ryan pick.The Atlanta Falcon never had a losing season while Mike Mularkley was OC and Matt Ryan never had a bad season. But in Tennessee, Mike Mularkley is the TE coach and Jason Michael is the OC. Jason Michael has been an OC for 1 season and that was last season with the Titans and he was horrible. If the Titans let Mike Mularkley call offensive plays from the booth like he did in Atlanta. I believe Marcus Mariota would be a Pro Bowl QB this season, but he will stink up the field with Jason Michael calling the plays. And to make matters worse, the Titans has John McNulty as QB coach and Bob Bostad as O-Line coach..A true Buc fan are familar with McNulty and Bostad, they are loyal,faithful Greg Schiano henchmen. I’m finally weighing in on this Winston vs Mariota debate, I’m a die hard Buc fan through thick and thin…To the end. But if the Titans wise up and give Mike Mularkley complete control of the offense, it won’t even be close between the Bucs and the Titans, and it won’t be close between Winston and Mariota.. The Titans and Mariota will win the battle hands down, Mike Mularkley is an offensive genius, 9 seasons as a player and OC for the Dolphins,Steelers,Falcons and Head Coach for the Jaguars and the Bills and he started out as the Bucs TE coach in 1994-1995 after 9 seasons with the Vikings and Steelers as a blocking TE. He’s only 53 with a resume that stretch a mile long and successful

  13. LakelandBuc Says:

    I should have worded it like this, Mike Mularkey spent 9 seasons as a player in the NFL. And another 21 years as an OC, TE or Head Coach, and he’s only 53.

    Thanks for sharing your irritable bowel syndrome with us…stick to football!

  15. Buccfan37 Says:

    LakelandBuc, that was an interesting post. Mularkey will likely get in on calling the plays in the Bucs matchup. I agree he is a good offensive mind. I think you are right about his impact potential.
