“I Just Knocked Him Off His Landmark”

November 30th, 2018

Payback. Revenge. A skill refinement.

Something big is expected Sunday and it seems they know all about in Charlotte.

Mike Evans was shut down three Sundays ago by Panthers cornerback James Bradberry, a late second-round pick in 2016. Evans was rendered invisible, one catch for 16 yards on a whopping 10 targets.

It was his worst game of the year and Dirk Koetter even called him out publicly.

Evans credited Bradberry, who the Charlotte Observer newspaper noted fell off his game after locking down Evans.

▪ He was beaten badly by Pittsburgh’s JuJu Smith-Schuster, who caught a 72-yard touchdown on the Steelers’ first play of the game in Week 10.

▪ He allowed two third-and-long conversions and the go-ahead touchdown to Detroit’s Kenny Golladay in Week 11.

▪ And he lost track of Seattle’s David Moore for a 54-yard gain on third-and-12, which led to a Seahawks touchdown three plays later in Week 12.

Bradberry knows the rematch is coming and explained what worked for him when he held Evans to one catch for 16 yards.

“I think I just knocked him off his landmark,” Bradberry said. “In each offense, you’re going to run certain routes and have certain landmarks — I think I was just knocking him off his landmark because I was able to get up there and press him. That was pretty much my goal.

“It can also be a bad thing, too, because if you miss it might be over with. You’ve got to make sure you get your hands on him and slow him down, that’s pretty much the whole goal when you get up there on the line.”

Joe sees a disaster looming for Bradberry, and Joe even suggests Evans will get in his head on Sunday at the Stadium on Dale Mabry Highway.

Joe believes it’s likely America’s Quarterback, Jameis Winston, knows a revenge day is in order for Evans. So Joe hopes calm and cool Jameis shows up and resists temptation to force anything to No. 13.

    well i hope mike and james play within the offense and winston doesnt try forcing things to mike to get “revenge” on bradberry…..

    but the most telling part of that was bradberry talking about landmarks…..why didnt dirk or monken move mike around?….stack him so bradberry cant press him…..motion him….run a rub route….

    something so bradberry cant get his hands on him…..

    but im not surprised…..this staff is allergic to making adjustments….

    KRIS RICHARD 4 HC!!!!!

  8. BucEmUp Says:

    what a great idea!!!!! gee wiz golly why didn’t anyone ever think of that before. Hitting a wr at the line to throw off the timing. WHAT A TERRIFIC IDEA HE HAD THERE! THIS MUST BE BREAKIBGNEWS CUTTING EDGE DEFENSE RIGHT? Has anyone else heard of this pressing at the line before? Weird…..seems like it would be common sense to do that but hey, we are the Tampa bay buccaneers and we don’t like to do that around these here parts mmm mmm hmmmmmmm

    Duh uuu uh!

    The games within the game. Ah loves me some football!
    Go Bucs!!!

    I think this time around Jameis approaches this game with a chill mentality. He knows he has no deep threat(or does he) with DJax out. Doesn’t it feel great to know that you have your #1 TE out for the season and #2 WR out for a game and yet we know we have 2 great players in Godwin and Brate that will step in and ball out. Not to forget Himphries in the #3 WR position. I guess our GM HAS done something good for this team! We could say we have the best 1-2 TE tandem in the league and THE BEST #3 WR in Godwin!
    #Go Bucs!!!

    Im counting on our defense to drop Cam on his ass about 4 times. That way, we can see his signature move….going to the bench, sit down and cover himself with a sweaty towel so no one see him cry…lol

    Jameis gets suspended 4 games for the uber ordeal…

    Meanwhile Kareem Hunt is on video shoving and kicking a girl in a hotel hallway back in February, and nothing happens. Supposedly he also knocked some guy out at an Ohio restaurant recently.

    Selective justice, the NFL at it’s finest! I guess woman-beating is okay in KC

    Unbelievable: the girl in the hotel was trying to rob the guy. The guy in the restaurant was probably trying to pick a fight with Hunt. This happens more than you think when pro athletes are out trying to have a good time…jealous snags try to pick fights with them.

  16. unbelievable Says:

    She was not trying to rob him lol

    He walked out and engaged with her after kicking her out. And those videos look like he would have done much worse if a bunch of people weren’t trying to separate them.

    Three indeed, my bad Joe.
