“I Don’t Give A Damn About Any Of That”

November 25th, 2019

Mike Evans put his foot down on national radio last night.

The best Bucs receiver in team history joined Fantasy Football Gameday on SiriusXM Radio and was asked how he mentally handles great performances from Chris Godwin when he himself struggles or doesn’t get the rock much.

The hosts, obviously, weren’t dialed in to the fact Evans is a pure team-first guy.

“I don’t give a damn about any of that,” Evans replied. “I’m just going out there playing as hard as I can, and when the ball comes my way I’m trying to catch the rock. So that’s the only thing I can worry about. I love to see C.G. shine. Of course, I’m a competitor. I want the ball, especially in 1-on-1 situations. But we have a lot playmakers on this team and I’m fine with everybody getting the rock.”

No diva to see here.

After yesterday’s NFL slate of games, Evans is the fifth-most targeted receiver in the league, so he certainly shouldn’t be moaning about getting the football.

Evans even went on to say rookie Scotty Miller is an emerging force he’s excited to see get more opportunities.

“Unbelievable speed. He’s definitely one of the fastest guys in the NFL,” Evans said of Miller.

Classy stuff from Evans.

    Scotty may have all the wheels in the world, still waiting for the routes and hands to show up

  2. Adrnagy Says:

    Evans is ok. But there’s times he gets lazy. Miller …. sure he has speed and whatever. But let him take acouple good licks and the kid will end up hurt. I want to see the kid get tuff

  3. 813bucboi Says:

    love mike but the mental side of his game still needs improvement….

    GO BUCS!!!!!

  4. unbelievable Says:

    Agreed bucsfaninchina. He’s got some speed but they really haven’t been able to get much out of him besides a catch or two, plus that TD last week. I see WRs running free behind the defense from almost every other team I watch, it’d be nice to see Tampa doing that more frequently too.

    As for Evans- he’s saying the right things. But his body language the last 2 weeks says differently– he has looked very frustrated, has given up on some balls and also been running some lazy @ss routes (see the 1st INT yesterday).

    Hopefully it’s just frustration from losing season and not him giving up on the team.

    I second that statement.

    I laughed with the Evans is OK comment from the poster above.

    Just saw that my favorite poster of all time, Macabee, passed away.

    RIP – there were no others like you. Thanks for all your well thought out posts.

  8. Miller5252 Says:

    I liked the Ok post as well, he’s only done things that only Miss can brag about….. he’s meh.

    I do agree he’s been having something going on here the last few weeks and periodic in the season. Dudes a straight baller when he’s locked in. I just hope Tampa can win next year, if he’s around, and get him and David to a playoff game.

  10. MadMax Says:

    Yeah, im glad Evans isnt a diva. Like i said a while back, we have two #1’s at the WR position. What a place to be!

    I saw a vid yesterday from the bucs that Miller has the highest route running speed in the nfl…..need to get that used in some spots. Try him at kick returns too.

  11. Etzel Says:

    Evans 4 Jamal Adams! Who says no!?!?

    (gonna keep beating this drum)

  12. JP_09 Says:

    Yeah Evans is okay, he’s only done what one other receiver has done in the history of the NFL but yeah he’s just okay. Some comments……..

  13. MadMax Says:

    what happened with Macabee? Yeah he was a great contributor here…RIP Sir. 🙁

  14. Nptbuc Says:

    Evans is just OK? That stupid comment shows a total lack of football knowledge. Something that shows up frequently on here. Give it a break. If you dislike the team so much there are plenty of other franchises to root for. Jeeze

  15. zzbuc Says:

    Old scholl , pure class, no diva hard working Wide recieiver. Nothing but admiration and respect for you Mr Evans!!!!

  17. PanthersSuck! Says:

    I swear we have the most negative fans on here. Never seen so many people take a good thing and throw dirt on it.

  18. Buczilla Says:

    My favorite player since Brooks, but Godwin is starting to catch up to him. How awesome is it to have two fantastic receivers playing on the same team given our history with wideouts? I can’t wait to see Jalen Hurts slinging the ball around to those two next year and our improved offensive line blocking like madmen, bought with the money we saved by smartly not resigning the guy who had 5 years to prove that he belonged.

    I can dream right? Nope, because in all likelyhood, both Jameis (franchise tag) and far more regrettably, Licht (foolish Glazers) will be back next year.

  19. Destinjohnny Says:

    Ya but if Godwin keeps this up…. we will see
    Drop in a franchise back and 3 offensive lineman and an elite qb….

  20. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Miller is a rookie & it shows……he’s got great speed and sometimes serves as a decoy…..he has to be covered by a CB because of his speed……that takes some pressure off Evans & Godwin….

    I think he’ll improve…..

  21. Tc Says:

    Jameis is 2nd in the league in passing yards with Godwin and Evans 2nd and 3rd in receiving.

  22. ModHairKen Says:

    Evans is a man.

  23. DB55 Says:

    8 attempts each and I even saw mike try to make some happen after the catch 🤷🏽‍♂️

  24. JustBucNwin Says:

    Evans is a grind it out, blue collar guy and I love it! Dude is a baller without the Diva which is rare in WR’s these days!!

  25. Buccfan37 Says:

    Look at that little Scotty Miller go.

  26. Clw JB Says:

    I said one thing right last week at least – we have TWO All Pro WR’s on our team

    Not just Pro Bowlers, these two are ALL PRO level, period

    They just take turns roasting secondaries across the NFL

    If the D can stay on task and keep improving, this team is going to be just fine…

  27. ChanEpic Says:

    I feel like Scotty miller should almost always be in for screen passes and not so much on vertical routes. We have a ton of vertical threats, but the speed he can show if he gets a couple of down field blocks should serve him well. But, what the heck do I know?

  28. JimbobBucsFan Says:

    Jerry Rice, Larry Fitzgerald, Terrell Owens, Randy Moss and Isaac Bruce are the top five NFL regular season career receiving yards leaders.  They averaged 14.8, 12.4, 14.8, 15.6 and 14.9 yards-per-catch respectively. Mike is averaging 15.6 at this point in his career. This is the same number as Randy Moss had and goes along nicely with the first six years of thousand yard seasons. 

    This is elite company to be in indeed.

    I have seen nothing but a hard worker and a class professional in Mike Evans.  I don’t see his failure to run perfect routes every time as taking plays off or in any sense as slacking. 

  29. firethecannons Says:

    Good to hear Mike Evans put it forth. As far as Scotty Miller goes, he just got praise from one of the best there ever was/is–he might be worth keeping.

  30. 1sparkybuc Says:

    The guy has on wr ahead of him on the list of best in the league, and we have fans complaining about his body language, and that he’s lazy. Unbelievably.

  31. firethecannons Says:

    Tc says: Jameis is 2nd in the league in passing yards with Godwin and Evans 2nd and 3rd in receiving.

    Might be reason alone to keep Winston for another year, hate to break up the trio now while so much history is getting made, granted our win total sux and we aint never going to the superbowl with JW but history is getting made and it may take a rook a long time to get acclimated and in the meantime ME and CG best years would be getting wasted.

  32. DavidBigBucsFan99 Says:

    I remember when he had all those drops in his 2nd year and a number of people who were sniffing all in his butt after a stellar rookie season were whining and even wanting to give up on him. Now look at him yet people still don’t see his greatness for this team. Buc fans can be ridiculous.

  33. Brandon Says:

    Y’all can keep on slamming Miller but speed doesn’t grow on trees. He could be good in time.

  34. Anonymous Says:

    it is very similar to how dungy the clown wasted sapp for 6 years….

  35. Jameis Almighty! Says:

    Mike Evans is a big physical receiver. Perfect for the way Jameis throws.

  36. DaBux Says:

    Whatever it takes, he needs to have a Larry Fitzgerald type of career and play for only one team. Period.
