Evans Says “Dumb” Is Unacceptable

April 11th, 2016

MikeEvans2The Bucs are back to work and Mike Evans is among the Buccaneers talking this afternoon at One Buc Palace.

Evans had plenty to say, but one subject addressed was his challenges managing emotions last season. That’s a nice way of saying losing it on the field, which Evans did too often.

Evans says his emotions will stay the same “but there’s a difference between passion and being dumb and being hotheaded. I got to find that happy medium. I think I will this year.”

It was a pretty mature take from the 22 year old.

    I think having a qualified and respected WR coach will help tremendously. It will be his first real WR coach with bucs.

    Words of wisdom! Don’t hurt the team Mike.

    I am glad to hear ME13 admit this, you do not want to be a player with a reputation of losing it during an emotional games!!! I also know that we finally have Coaches in place that will not tolerate “dumb” !!!

    any reports of the smiles on the Defensive roster because they have a chance of playing in a real NFL defense with a Great Defensive Coordinator????

    Someone asked if koetter could compare last years defensive meeting with this yr and koetter said that he could not bc he wasn’t in the meeting last yr but more importantly that comparisons to the past would not help the team in anyway and would prefer not to compare.

    Off subject, watched the presser with ME, the real Coach K and Jameis… Funniest thing I heard was Jameis said Mike Glennon said this was the first time he has had back to back years of the same offense, does he know he is on the trading block. Really like Mike, would love for him to stick around but he may do the Bucs a solid by bringing in another talent at a different position and he should be able to compete for a starting job in the NFL

  7. DB55 Says:

    It’s hard not to get excited when you hear Jameis talk. This kid is the real deal.

    What my homes tmax said. And the energy coach Monken projects has me excited about the wr corp.

  9. Buccfan37 Says:

    I’ll be surprised if Evans can eliminate the losing it on the field completely. That is a part of his competitive nature.

    He said this exact same thing last year and kept on acting like a diva on the field

    It reminds me of one of my favorite quotes — “In the end you are nothing but your actions” — basically, you can call it passion, but if you act dumb then you are dumb. Let’s not be dumb

    Nice take.
    The emotions was a carry over from the dropped balls. Frustration.
    He didn’t have that problem much his rookie year or in college so I’m not concerned. He will be fine.

  12. Tampa Tony Says:

    Media loves this time of year, it’s the BS and tough talk time. Show me on the field. Is it September yet?

  13. BigHogHaynes Says:

    Evans problems (dropped passes) had absolutely nothing to do with coaching, to say it does is all BULL, maturity was his only problem, I expect him to be better this year, but won’t be because of a coach, MATURITY!

    Send all the refs a $50 Outback gift certificate might be a good start.

    Critical year for Mike Clayton Evans. If the drops and temper tantrums persist in 2016 the cake may be baked for him. However, if he can stop batting down Winston’s passes and quit flailing around like an NBA player when a defensive back contests a pass there is a good chance he will go on to be the great receiver we all hoped for.
