The Dynamic Duo

November 27th, 2019

Rare accomplishment.

Mike Evans and Chris Godwin made Bucs history by etching their names into a small list of receiving partners in NFL history for receiving yards.

Evans and Godwin both surpassed the 1,000-yards for the season Sunday, the Bucs’ 11th game. Per Scott Smith of, that is a rare feat in the NFL. Only twice this century, and only three times total in NFL history, has a pair of teammates racked up 1,000 yards receiving through 11 games.

The first receiving duo to do this had Hall of Fame quarterback Joe Namath directing traffic back in 1969 for the Jets. George Sauer and Don Maynard.

That mark lasted until 2000, when Hall of Fame quarterback Kurt Warner guided the ship for the Rams. Isaac Bruce and Torry Holt each had 1,000 receiving yards by the 11th game.

Then it happened a third time in 2014 with soon-to-be Hall of Fame quarterback Peyton Manning barking plays for the Broncos. Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders also reached 1,000 receiving yards by their 11th game.

Now this year, with America’s Quarterback, Pro Bowler Jameis Winston, calling the shots for the Bucs. Evans and Godwin entered an elite club.

Yet there are some folks out there who are so blinded with hate over Jameis, they believe any two-bit quarterback can pull this off.

You know, because Andy Dalton.

    One of the best, if not the best, wr pairs in the league.

    Joe the evidemve is clear. Jameis is doing things only hall of farmers have done but then again people want to run him off? The kid loves the game and yes he not perfect but neither is our defense. I bet you billicheat would make jameis the mext patrick mahomes.

  3. Figures Says:

    Why does Andy Daltons name even get mentioned?
    Who in their right mind would want Andy Dalton?

    Winston has his issues but Andy Dalton?

    No thanks!!!

    And people who don’t like Winston does not equal hate.

    Just maybe people want to see consistency and know from week to week what the QB is gonna bring to the table instead of wondering if it’s gonna be bad Jameis or good Jameis.

    And maybe they want to see the QB not wait till the last 5 or 6 games for things to “click”.

    Everyone agrees Winston has talent but you can’t win in the playoffs against much better teams throwing picks at the rate he does unless you have an elite defense. And if you have an elite defense than an average QB can win.

    Stf u NDOG it’s true regardless of your “stats”

  4. Bucsfanman Says:

    Somebody’s obsessed with Andy Dalton!!!
    I wonder if Mike and Chris would trade dual 1,000 yard receiving stats for wins?! It literally means nothing without the wins.
    But, but, but, “top 5 offense!” Ahem, 4-7.

  5. JP_09 Says:

    So Evans and Godwin have 1k yards receiving because of Winston? Or does Winston have the numbers he has because of Evans and Godwin?

    cut the turnovers in half and they could’ve had 1k yards each by game 9.

    Also if Evans makes some catches he dropped he also could’ve helped that cause.

    F&CK ANDY DALTON. I don’t think I’ve ever read one comment on here where a poster said they would take Dalton over Winston

  6. Ace Says:

    the sarcasm must be going over you guys heads with the Andy Dalton LMAO unbelievable

  7. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    Andy Dalton is:

    * A veteran with tons of experience

    * Coach-able

    * Situation similar to Carson Palmer

    * Similar skill set to Jameis

    * Makes smarter decisions than Jameis

    * Would be significantly cheaper than Jameis to sign



    The stars are aligning for Andy Dalton to come here. I believe it will happen.

    No GM wants a boneheaded QB like Jameis giving the ball away and losing the team games.

    Plus, the Bucs will be in Cap Hell if they try to ink Jameis to a long-term deal. They still gotta retain their top draft picks like Godwin, Vea, and White.

    Remember, you must also field a team financially……not just skill-set wise.

  8. Alanbucsfan Says:

    Amazing how this story started out about Evans and Godwin and ended up being about Jameis…

  9. teacherman777 Says:

    Give Licht credit for Chris Godwin.

    Hall of Fame potential.

    Jameis must sign a 5 year, 100 million contract.

    Team friendly, like Tom Brady.

    Reward Jameis with 75 guaranteed. So its a mutually beneficial contract.

    We should also sign Chris Godwin to the exact same contract that Mike Evans signed.

    Everybody wins.

    And we can afford to build a great roster for the next 5 years.

  10. isrBuc Says:

    uh Jesus spinning things to prove a point. Team scores 30+ pts a game? JW is great. Leftwhich? oh, he’s a bad play caller. CG and ME are elite? how come if 50% of JWs turnovers are his receiver’s fault? They must be the worst rout runners in the league.
    They are good though. Does it really matter? Evans is making 16 mil$. Godwin payday is coming soon. are we going to keep them both? spend 30+ mil$ on two receivers while paying a QB who cannot win with them 27 mil$?

  11. Jim Says:

    Maybe Joe has some inside One Buc info re Dalton, because he’s clearly obsessed with the guy. No one other than Joe ever mentions Andy Dalton in these posts.

    Is Winston a future HOFer?

  12. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Soon to be $55 million on 3 players…..they better rack up some TDs & yardage.

  13. Ndog Says:

    Is throwing for 300 plus yards for 6 games in a row and leading the league in 300 yards games not consistent?

  14. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    Much rather have Derek Carr than Andy Dalton, and there are credible rumors out there that Gruden doesn’t want him and that he will be available in the off-season.

    Evans made Manziel look like an actual QB at Texas A&M and Godwin made his QB look better at Penn State too. I’m not buying Joe’s sarcasm and his Winston flag-waving. Time to move on from that turnover machine and say good riddance to his never ending inconsistency.

  15. adam from ny Says:

    the bucs might want dalton if they go back to the old orange unis…

    the carrot top and carrot balls bush might match the unis nicely…

    go figure 🙂

  16. Ndog Says:

    I love how everyone is going gaga over Lamar Jackson’s err the Ravens, beat down of the Rams. When they dominated via the running game all day and all Jackson had to do was hit wide open players all day due their fear of getting run over. Anybody remember what our passing game did to that same team in that same stadium in week 3, and who was throwing the ball in that game? I guess that was not a big deal.

  17. Figures Says:


    Not when you’re turning it over 10-12 times in those 6 games.

  18. Alanbucsfan Says:

    As consistent as 5-11 every year

    I agree, D, OLine and running game have been lacking, but Jameis has to do his part and stop turning it over. No excuses

  19. Tattoodonny Says:

    Oh how this subject bothers me so. It’s like that old saying “she loves me, she loves me not” when I think of Jameis Winston. Every year & every other week, he’s an unbelievable QB followed by straight garbage. I professed a few weeks ago that i was personally done with Jameis. Then BA informs us how between tipped balls & routes ran poorly, only about half of his Int’s are on him. If you heard Mark Schlereth after Jameis threw the 1st pick vs the Failcons, how Mike Evens ran that route poorly & allowed the DB to get in front of him for the pick. I’m now leaning toward franchising him or a similar 3 year deal Blake Bortles signed last year, except with an easier out for the team. Then we’ll have cap room to sign FAs & keep our FAs we need like Shaq Barrett, Suh and extend players like Chris Godwin & others. Then if things go as I’m sure the Glazers, Jason & BA expect we’ll be winning and the cap won’t be a problem. I know it sounds like a pipe dream but after Tony Dungey started 0-7 then finished 7-2 and the start of playoff seasons followed by a Super Bowl. If things work out that way, Jameis Winstons 100+ turnovers won’t matter, as bad. Come on Jameis & Buccaneers, your fans deserve it! Go Bucs!

  20. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    The last time I seen a player so dominant in the run game and it lifted the whole team up like that was MICHAEL VICK!!!!!!

    Yeah…..VICK was still slightly faster…….but it is so uncanny what’s going on in Baltimore compared to Vick’s days in Atlanta.

    I know all of the Ravens fans are losing their damn minds up there and all of the GMs are kicking themselves because they could’ve had the next Michael Vick.

    What’s crazy about Lamar Jackson, is that he showed all of the NFL to the teams that he is a SMART PASSER in the pocket……and that is something Michael Vick never was……VICK was just average throwing from the pocket.

    If and I mean IF Lamar Jackson doesn’t get hurt like Vick or RGIII……..he could dominate for many many many years to come.

    I know I’m super Jealous that we don’t have Lamar Jackson……..instead we have a boneheaded 1st rd bust Jameis Winston…………….boooooooooooooooo

  21. zzbuc Says:

    Evans/Godwing was the best thing that happened to the Bucs since Superbowl…..I really don´t know how is einstein Licht going to manage this super contracts…Evans, Godwin….JW?????

  22. Ndog Says:

    I know to each its own and everyone is entitled to their opinion but to have to be lumped into the same category as Figures, Anthem and countless others as a Bucs fan is embarrassing. They activity root against the central figure on our team and on top of it rarely show any knowledge of actual football. I mean how do we get stuck with both such a bad team for some many years and “fans” that are so absolutely clueless at the same time? What did do to deserve both?

  23. RustyRhinos Says:

    1969 Joe had 19TD 17INT 2735 yards. 10 wins 4 losses
    2014 Manning had 39TD 15INT 4727 yards 12 wins 4 losses
    2019 winston so far has 22TD 20INT and 3391 yards. So far 4 wins 7 losses.
    There are some big differences here.

  24. #1bucfan Says:

    Y’all crazy no way I’m taking the red rifle. Look I i is he’s made the play offs but that’s it. He had a whole team around him an he chokes every time he made the play offs sorry y’all it ain’t happening. Ima keep beating this drum. IT DOESNT MATTER WHO IS AT QB IF YOUR DEFENSE GIVES UP 30pts again we will lose 9 times out of 10. Fix the trenches an the defense cut down half of winstons turnovers an we have a team. Haters won’t listen let them keep crying about Winston at the end of the day it’s just noise any ways. Winston is our QB. YES I’m concerned with the turnovers but not as concerned for this leaky seive of a defense 1 good game from our defense is a good start but now they need to play consistently an disciplined let’s go Bucs

  25. Ndog Says:

    Quick question for you anyone that wants to answer.

    When is the last time the leading passer in the league (yardage wise or TD wise) not been with the same team the next year?

  26. zzbuc Says:

    Ndog, you nailed when you said
    quote everyone is entitled to their opinion….. We also have to read your opinions about JW and I disagree on most on your opinions, but that´s the beauty of it.
    I do not hate JW by any means but I think he is not the answer for the Bucs, he turns ths ball over often, a lot. You tend to blame others and with the exceptions JW is the one to blame.
    On the other side well if not JW who? Well that is an interesting debate…….

  27. 813bucboi Says:


    LJ had 5TDs with NO INTS….

    folks are going “gaga” over him because he was the last pick in the 1st round and just about everyone thought he wasnt NFL QB material….they thought he was a WR or DB…..

    regarding JW, 6games doesnt make him consistent….how many times has JW done that in his career?….thats being consistent….

    JW is consistent at turning the ball over….all the “stats” look good but if they dont come with a “W” how is it helping the team…..

    during those 6games we have 2wins VS teams that had the same record as us at the time we played them…..

    during those 6games JW had at least 1 TO in each game…..he’s turned the ball over in every game except for the week2 win vs CAR…..thats consistency…

    GO BUCS!!!!!!

  28. 813bucboi Says:


    good question…dont know…seems a little irrelevant imo because bucs fans want more Ws and less TOs from JW not more stats…..

    i think all of them had winning records except for drew brees….

    when was the last time JW had back to back games without a TO?…..

    and the QBs that you mentioned that led the league in passing and TDs, how many missed the playoffs the year they led the league?…

    i guess is only drew brees….

    GO BUCS!!!!!

  29. pryda...sec 147 Says:

    Jameis is the answer he been growing since day 1 here he has not hit the ceiling yet BA is doing good with him I think it’s a matter of time before he really gets it.

  30. orlbucfan Says:

    Licht signed both these dudes. Barring Buc Luck, they will both be HOFers. They like each other, and JW. So, they know something the yahoos/trolls on here don’t.
    The Jags are a mess right now, so no reason IF BA calls the O correctly, why Tampa Bay can’t win.

  31. 1sparkybuc Says:

    Namath and Manning had better team support. That accounts for their better W-L record. Winston has superior WRs, but that’s all he has had. Fix the trenches and add another decent RB. Better protection equals better production and fewer turnovers. Jameis adds to his franchise records every time he steps on the field, and that’s with garbage protection and a sieve for a defense. No other QB in franchise history could have done more with this team. Why anyone would think a rookie would be an instant upgrade over Jameis is beyond me.

  32. BigHog Says:

    I think it will come down to…if FAMOUS really wants to be here in Tampa Bay. It my come down to RESPECT and not MONY…But please stop saying any old game manager could do what FAMOUS is doing …FAMOUS IS DOING IT WITH THE BEST IN THE LEAGUE !!! BIGGLEY!

  33. RealityCheck Says:

    Ndog said last weekend and I quote “Mike Evans is trash.” Who cares what this homer thinks.

  34. Buczilla Says:

    I don’t want Dalton or Winston. I don’t hate Winston (I was ecstatic when we drafted him even though he played for FSU), but I am tired of seeing him and the team fail year after year. Maybe I’m still sore that Testeverde (5 wasted years there too) didn’t pan out, but after 5 years of the same old sh!t, I have lost my patience with Winston and have no desire to watch him play any longer.

    Franchising Winston or gosh forbid signing him long term is beyond irresponsible and foolish. If he’ll stay for backup money then fine, but otherwise we should draft a cheap rookie qb and build the team the right way. Oh, and obviously Lichts gotta go.

    Nice freaking narrative on Dalton, brother. But it isn't accurate. If you want a QB with a similar skillset to Andy Dalton, look no further than Brian Griese. Limited athlete, limited arm strength, accurate in the short game but struggles to consistently push ball down field with accuracy and fitting balls into tight windows. He is the Captain Checkdown that would flop in a vertical offense.
