After six games, Chris Godwin has 43 catches for 662 yards and six touchdowns.

Read that again.

Pull out the trusty calculator and those numbers extrapolate to 114 caches for 1765 yards and 16 touchdowns. And Godwin has caught a whopping 78 percent of balls thrown his way.

Through six games, he his without question the Bucs’ best receiver. Mike Evans has hauled in less than 50 percent of his targets. And fans watching the Bucs’ London burial today on NFL Network heard Michael Irvin and Kurt Warner heap a healthy share of criticism on Evans.

Yeah, it was a load of garbage time yards for Godwin today. But that’s not his fault, and there were a good chunk of contested catches. And he blocks. And he grinds through injuries.

And he’s going to want a year-early contract extension after this season, the kind great third-year players usually command.

    As the picture shows Godwin thinking: “Smells like a loss”

    We should totally rebuild……trading Brate…..maybe Evans…..letting VH3 go….JPP……get some comp picks……
    The only reason to trade ME13 is the money & we would certainly get at least a #1 for him.
    Brate we don’t need…..with some of these 1 year FAs we could get comp picks…

    We would likely get a comp pick for Winston because he would be given a decent contract as a backup somewhere.

    Evans looks like he hates the game now.

    Sad what this crappy franchise has done to him.

  4. Danr Says:

    Evans bad attitude and quitting has returned from his sophomore year

  5. Rayjay1122 Says:

    Poor Godwin. He deserves better than the crap franchise he plays for.

    i have said it all off season:

    Suckaneers Roster Sucks

    besides some players, this Roster is rotten

    The Suckaneers FrontOffice is not able to evaluate talent and they suck at Roster building ..


    is it true: Jason Licht got an contract extiction?

    if so:

    its time to boycott this joke of an “professionell” team…

    Fire Licht Tonight!!

  8. Duthsty Rhothdes Says:

    Love mike evans but the bucs are basement dwellers & if they had a new and competent GM, they trade evans for 2 #1s

  9. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Hey…Tmax…..>BMA & JUMA…..

    And you answered your own question as to why we need comp picks…..the more picks, the more of a chance we actually might hit on one.

    You were the one who practically guaranteed our sole reason for losing was 93.

  10. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    I get moderated every time I answer T……x. Where is his moderation?

  11. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Is Tx being protected by Joe?

  12. Frank Pillow Says:

    I’ll say it again- Godwin IS the best overall draft pick of the Licht era. The kid came here with his head on straight, maturity and one hell of a work ethic. He is earning a huge payday with each and every snap—he doesn’t lose focus, doesn’t pout, doesn’t allow himself to fall victim to head-games and fights for every ball thrown his way. He is the #1 WR on this roster and is the player-type this woebegone franchise needs more of.

  13. ModHairKen Says:

    Does it matter? The team’s record is worse than after game 6 last year.

  14. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    So, you fool….you’d rather have fewer draft picks?…… guys under 14 shouldn’t be on the site…..

  15. Capt. Tim Says:

    Relentless is the perfect word!
    Playing style is alot like Jerry Rice.
    Great routes, strong Hands, fights thru tackles.
    He’ll break some records this year!

  16. Buczilla Says:

    One of the few bright spots in this miserable season.

  17. JameisHas2Go Says:

    I believe there could be a reckoning coming. I would not be surprise if we see some personal moves, up to and including moving Mike Evans, if not during the season, then in the off season. He has considerable value and right now Chris Godwin is going to command a significant salary increase after this season. They will need to sign him to a long term extension like they did in NO with Michael Thomas.

    Mike becomes expendable and an asset that can return at least a 1st round pick and another high value pick. Maybe another first but probably a second.

  18. Ndog Says:

    Best WR on this team hands down.

  19. Bosch Says:

    Why would he want a contract extension? That would mean staying with the Bucs.

  20. lowercaseg Says:


  21. Mike10 Says:

    All we can hope is that it is a different GM making that signing.

    Ya, that drop by Evans at the end of the first half was egregious!

  22. Jeebs the Honey Bear Says:

    Awful game by Mike Evans. TRADE THIS BRICK HANDED LOSER

  23. Lee Says:

    Everyone on here “saying trade so and so for draft picks.” That would be nice if the stinking GM knew how to draft and scout talent. But he doesn’t know how to draft even 1st rounders which should be hits 99% of the time. I dare to say that you will continue to see what you saw today UNTIL Licht is fired. I think the Glazers do spend money, they just don’t spend it wisely. Team will continue to suck until Glazers sell.

  24. BigPoppaBuc Says:

    Y’all are crazy. Trade Evans? And replace him with who? Let’s be honest. DCs fear Mike Evans. Godwin gets a lot of single coverage and does a great job. But our depth at WR is not that great as Justin Watson seems to be a bust and I think Miller is just too small. Trading one of our TEs or one of our young but struggling CBs makes sense. Letting guys like Evans go is the kind of move that’s got this franchise in this position to begin with.

  25. Bucsfanman Says:

    Ndog- hate to say it, but you’re right. He’s been the most consistent player on this offense, hands down.
    Evans just doesn’t look right to me this season, hot and cold!

  26. orlbucfan Says:

    This makes me madder than a fire ant mound that’s been disturbed. Ungodly does not deserve this nor does a bunch of other competent players on this team. Good old braindead owners, first Culverhouse and now this Glazer joke. What did west central FL do to deserve this crap??????

  27. Bobby Says:

    Yeah, we don’t trade Evans. That would be a mistake. He’d probably go to Carolina and torch us twice a year. Godwin is great but part of that is the attention Evans gets. Godwin doesn’t seem to mind when Evans has a great game. I think Evans does mind when Godwin has a great game.

  28. Eastsidebuc Says:

    I may be talking crazy after an L but trade Mike Evans for some picks for the future??? Or nah?

  29. WestChap Says:

    I resisted all the TradeBraters in pre-season and dared to dream JW was “fixed” after Bucs dropped 55 on the Rams but today’s fiasco has broken me. Brate is the only luxury on this team. What would the Patriots be willing to part with for a quality receiving TE? After today no sane person can argue the Glazers would be wise to tie up $30M+ in 2020 (or beyond) in JW. So, is there any team out there willing to take a chance on JW rebooting with a fresh start… Washington, Denver, Jax, Chicago, anybody? I doubt he has much trade value but you never know what a team without a solid QB will do for a chance to try their hand at reviving a frustratingly talented #1 pick’s career. Let’s roll with Griffin and Gabbert (when back from IR?) to see what we may have (another Kyle Allen?). I’ve seen enough of this nightmare.
