Mike Evans already has Pro Bowl stats — with five games left to play.

Against the stud Seahawks today, Evans racked up 104 yards on eight catches and two touchdowns, and Richard Sherman was running around looking for Kleenex.

Through 11 games, Evans has 73 catches, 1,020 yards and 10 touchdowns.


Evans is cruising toward franchise records in all three categories.

You really can put Evans in the elite-receiver conversation. And now the nation knows it with this performance against mighty Seattle.

It’s three 1,000-yard seasons for Evans in his first three campaigns. The guy is 23 years old.

Just imagine what happens next year when the Bucs put a legitimate receiving threat on the opposite side of the field.

  2. Harry in Costa Rica Says:

    Evans was totally ridiculous. Made Sherman look average

  3. Stpetebucsfan Says:

    ME’s the real deal. We’ll get to see ME and JJ the two best WR’s a lot as the NFC South is loaded. Benjamin is no slouch!

  4. AC Says:

    Love this kid. 23 years old. Jameis is 22. Marpet, Smith, and Pamphile all young. We are building something down here in Tampa I tell ya.

  6. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    And to think…last year and this off season, idiots around here were saying he was a bust.

    You know who you are…don’t make me prove it.

  7. MadMax Says:

    As long as he’s not taking a knee anymore during the anthem Im good…and he said he wont, so its all good. Good job ME13.

  8. Phred Says:

    Wow. These Bucs are progressing faster than I thought. At the beginning of the season I thought 8-8 would be overachieving for their talent level.

    If they build right, Bucs are 2-3 years away from being the Patriots.

  9. tmaxcon Says:

    Mike Evans is a MAN simple as that… he owned Sherman. watching Sherman bitch to the refs for getting a taste of his own medicine was priceless.

    Ole KY hands strikes again.

  11. Walter Says:

    Top 5 WR

  12. Bird Says:

    THAnks for Ky hands

  13. Ndog Says:

    Yep Kobe Faker this guy is average.

  14. DrHoagy Says:

    Already at 1000+yds for the year and passes Michael Clayton’s career total. Will the comparisons now cease? Probably not, haters have to hate.
    He is one of four players in NFL history to achieve 1000yds in their first 3 seasons and most likely on his way to the Pro Bowl. Criticism at this point is really pointless. Give it up!

  15. Ga. Buc fan 40 years Says:

    Amen,tmax,Amen ! What an awesome WIN !!!

  16. GhostofSchiano Says:

    Don’t know if any of you saw this as it occurred off camera, Richard Sherman crying to the refs after Evans 2nd td…..priceless

  17. Birdman Says:

    Look fellas, Im man enough to admit I made a mistake.
    I watched a lot of Texas A&M highlights back in the day, and I was so anxious for a QB that I wanted the Bucs to draft Manziel… Thank lord Mr Licht was wise enough to look at the other end of the plays and take a top 5 WR with a premier draft pick.

  18. NjBucsfan Says:

    I’d like to see Pryor come to TB

  19. MarineBucsFan Says:


    I would like Pryor as well. He is big and fast!

  20. BuccoDav Says:

    And to think, someone wanted Jonny I’m outta Football…just kidding around, Joe. Keep up the good work!

  21. Harry in Costa Rica Says:

    And keep in mind, Evans did this not only against arguably the best corner in the NFL, but also without any real other “threats” at WR. At times, you could see he was being triple teamed!

  22. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Top 5 my @ss ME13 is THE BEST Wr in the LEAGUE

  23. NCFlorIdiot Says:

    I live in NC, just got home from work and the damn game didn’t record for some reason… Do any of you guys know how get the game on the internet? Please and thank you!

  24. Warthog Says:

    Oh man Sherman got OWNED today. Absolutely dominted. LMAO

  25. Stu Laake Says:

    ME under Monken has definitely stepped up…still maturing, but trending in the right direction

  26. LongSeason Says:

    Congratulations to Mike Evans. First receiver drafted by Tampa to reach the 1000 yard plateau in each of his first three seasons. Of players drafted by the Bucs, only Kevin House reached the 1000 yard receiving mark more than once (1981 and 1984). Mike Evans is also the 4th NFL receiver to start his career with 3 straight 1000 yard seasons. e is joining some elite company.
