Hit So Hard He Ralphed

Cool stories from Bucs WR.

Cool stories from Bucs WR.

Recently, Bucs wide receiver Mike Evans did a spot on the “Russillo and Kannel Show” on BSPN and offered up cool, behind-the-scenes stories.

Nothing was earth-shattering, but it was cool stuff not seen or heard by anyone not employed by the Bucs.

Evans admitted the work he did in the offseason with America’s Quarterback, Pro Bowler Jameis Winston, is beginning to pay off. He noted since they can’t use One Buc Palace for offseason workouts, he and Jameis (and others) would go work out at Florida State or a local park in Tampa.

Once, while working out at a Tampa park, arena league players were there (Joe assumes it was the Storm, but Evans didn’t say). Evans said it was a particularly good challenge as he got to go 1-on-1 against corners.

The chemistry is growing with Jameis, Evans admitted. While he denied the two have set plays for each pass play, and also denied the Bucs have pass plays where Jameis only looks for him, Evans did offer that sometimes just before a snap, as the two see the defensive set, Evans and Jameis will make eye contact. “We look in each other’s eyes and we know.”

Evans was also asked what he had to learn in the NFL.

“Taking care of your body and route-running would be another thing,” Evans said. Route-running is “not really hard but it has been tough for me to get them as crisp as I want them being a bigger guy.”

Last week when it appeared Evans was hurt badly on the interception by Jameis, Evans admitted he was rocked so hard that he threw up. “I’m surprised that wasn’t shown on the TV.”

    This is a tandem that will last a long time hopefully. Need to find a solid #2 in the draft or free agency and then watch out.

    As 1 of his biggest critics last year of evans performance, i am very impressed with his dertimination to develop his raw skills and weaknesses. Me13 at the 2nd and 3rd levels is 1 of the best in the nfl..but (you knew there had to be a but)

    What separates the elite from me13

    Aj green, ant brown, julio jones, obj

    Is the line of scrimmage first level separation and run after catch skillset. All the elite can take a 2 yard slant and screen and accelerate to paydirt. Me13 has to work further on his hands to break separation. He has to learn to box and body himself away from tight man coverage.

    Alden bolden would have been perfect for him to teach and learn from.

    Me13, for his frame is properly the least physical wr of the big bodied receivers in the nfl

    For the padt 2 years, me13 is absolutely useless from the line of scrimage to the 10 yard line

    Bolden would have helped create the ultimate weapon and made me13 undefendable

    Manning/Harrison connection???? Hope so.

    Hwy will never have the breakaway speed to take a screen to the house. He does have the physicality to be very effective on short routes.

    I’m hoping the bucs find a way to draft juju Smith schuster. Or Mike williams. Shuster is a beast, very physical and very adept at getting deep on guys. Mike Williams is a freak of nature, reminds me of aj green.

  5. Sambizle Says:

    He got called for offensive pass interference every time he looked at a DB wrong. I don’t think your more aggressive approach to using his body to be more physical with the DBs is the best idea. Maybe next year after he gets his third huge year along with the extra love the Noles fans and other Jamies can do no wrong fans start giving to Mike, he can start to be more physical with the DBs.

    I miss that word being used for barf… vomit… throwing up… hurl… puke… upchuck… spew.

  7. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    @ kobe
    ME13 isn’t physical? Please see Terence newman

  8. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Speaking for Pablo

    “Pablo doesn’t recommend Pablo’s Bucs eat Mexican food before playing…….if players Ralph (vomito)……it will really be bad….nothing worse than chimichanga vomito…but perhaps general tso’s chicken”

  9. Mojiska Says:

    Difference between using your body appropriately by boxing out and using it to interfere. He doestablished have a lot to learn on how to use his body on short routes, but he is doing so well on long routes

  10. KingBuc17 Says:

    Please Jason Licht get him some SPEED help!!!! Tell me we are not really looking at giving Cleveland a third for Josh Gordon???? When can he return? Just got out of rehab??? How many chances does he get to stay off the stuff? Do you get to try them all sauce, crack, Coke, Meth, and Heroin?

    If we beat Oak and don’t go get Torrey Smith or Enunwa, we don’t deserve to make the playoffs this year. We have to give Jameis a speed weapon. Lets get it now and then again in the draft, plus safety and TE.
