“We Don’t Ever Get To Work On That Play In Practice”

August 21st, 2016

MikeEvanssmileInteresting insight from Dirk Koetter on Tampa Bay’s first touchdown last night.

Speaking on the Buccaneers Radio Network after the game, Koetter said the Mike Evans-America’s Quarterback connection to the back of the end zone along the right sideline was very much about chemistry.

Team usually roll safety coverage toward Evans in the red zone or they flat out double cover him, Koetter explained. That even happens in practice. But the Jags didn’t do that.

“It was a good read by Jameis. We don’t ever get to work on that play in practice,” Koetter said. “Like I said, we never get that look. So good read and good execution and really nice play by Mike.”

Yes, it was classic Mike Evans, as Joe wrote last night. Body control, adjustment and great feet — and this one even included great hands.

    Say what you will about Mike Evans…..but I can tell you this…..he is an absolute beast to defend and has phenomenal skills. There isn’t a team in the league that wouldn’t want him. Yes….he will drop some passes……who doesn’t?

    Very happy for Mike..today is his 23rd birthday..just happy he had such a great night last night.

    Happy Birthday Mike!! May you have many more TD’s this year..

    I think we are already seeing improvement from evans. finally having his first legit nfl receivers coach is paying off. Unfortunately other than Humphries the rest of WR are a lost / hopeless cause. Vjax will ride off into subset either during the season or after it. Not much left there

    I don’t think it will happen, but how cool would it be for Mike to grab 23 td’s this year?

  5. Buc1987 Says:

    Why not 24 TD’s?

  6. SB with Jameis Says:

    Ummmm Maybe because he just turned 23 today 87. Just a guess though

  7. Trubucfan22 Says:

    If you’re going to get 24 might as well make it a quarter of a century and get 25.
