Evans: Practices Have “Energy”

August 11th, 2018

Has different take.

Interesting perspective from a player this morning, coming from of the best of the Bucs players.

Bucs coach Dirk Koetter grumbled after practice that the Bucs were “sluggish” in practice today. However, Bucs wide receiver Mike Evans is thinking otherwise.

After practice, Evans had a sitdown with Pat Kirwan and Jim Miller, co-hosts of “Movin’ the Chains,” which is broadcasting their SiriusXM NFL Radio show live from One Buc Palace.

When Kirwan asked Evans how his training camp was going, Evans enthusiastically said it was going great.

“It’s going awesome,” Evans said. “Defense is bringing a lot of energy. And so is the offense.”

Now that doesn’t remotely sound like Evans believes the team has had sluggish practices.

Of course, Joe cannot recall very often a player claiming he or his team has had a garbage practice.

    This is journalism gold. Koetter talks about today’s practice while Evans answers an unrelated question from Kirwan. Where does Evan’s talk about today’s practice and the players not being sluggish?

    They had a a road game Thursday night. Why would dirk expect them to be anything but sluggish.

    👆 I’m because it’s only after the first preseason game & not one should show any signs of slowing down.. They are a bunch of pansies and not meant to win anything if they are sluggish after that as you would suggest.. If they were a little sluggish I’d say it just has more to do with just sometimes, some days, players don’t put all in effort during camp all the time and during preseason.. Some of the good ones pace themselves until the real bullets start to fly

    For those gluttons for punishment like me who watch the preseason games a second or third time to watch individual players…. is it just me or did #60 RT Brad Seaton seem to have a pretty good game? He started at RT and played into the 3rd qtr and I thought he was very sound both in run blocking and pass protection. Did anyone else notice the same thing?

    Could be a difference in perspective!!!!! As The Head Coach is watching everything as opposed to ME13 who is just seeing the secondary!!!!!!!!!!!

    GO Bucs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    @Season is Over: that exactly what I was thinking, less the dig at the Joes and the “gold” they’re mining. They’re not all gems, but I appreciate the amount of effort the Joes take to consistently feed Buc Nation, regardless if I agree with every article or not.

    A little off topic but I am a huge fan of the indoor facility. The sun does damage and does not give you an advantage! Living here in FL every day gives you an advantage not practicing in it. Dehydration that these guys are experiencing especially the ones losing 20, 30, or more lbs you can not recover from in a few weeks. After six weeks of practicing in the sun (trading camp/preseason) your legs are shot and your brain is fried! There is no amount of water you can drink to get the body back to where it needs to be. These guys are already in shape no need for boot camp even though it sounds good on paper.
