Brady On Mike Evans: Incredible Football Knowledge

September 5th, 2020

Tom Brady has never thrown Mike Evans a football in a real game, but Brady has very strong opinions about his premier target — on a roster loaded with weapons.

Brady chatted with the Buccaneers’ official website this week and was reminded that Evans is tied with Randy Moss for the NFL record of opening a career with of six consecutive seasons of 1,000 or more yards receiving. And Brady was asked why he thinks Evans has been so consistent and dominant.

“I’ve always watched Mike from afar, even in college,” Brady said. “You know, quarterbacks love watching receivers. You know Mike’s ability to get open. He’s got incredible hands, toughness, size, speed, incredible football knowledge. And he’s got a lot of rare traits; I can see why he’s had six 1,000-yard [receiving] seasons. He’s just a spectacular player, great competitor.”

Yeah, Brady is known to gush over his teammates, even former teammate Dare Ogunbowale, but that take above on Evans is incredibly strong. Especially impressive is Brady’s opinion of Evans’ football knowledge.

It’s the kind of paragraph Ira Kaufman should read to the panel of Hall of Fame voters when Evans is a finalist one day.

Joe can almost hear Ira’s voice in 2032. “Gentlemen, this is what Brady said about Evans before he ever threw him a touchdown pass.”

    ME is going to pick up right where he left off with Johnny Manziel throwing him the ball…after a few years interruption

    I’ve believed and stated that Mike will be in the HOF since early in his 3rd season. Top 4 Buccaneer player ever! Best Buc offensive player bar none. Well done Mike!

    Hey Joe, this is nice and all, but could you please do us a favor and gert us the final 53? Why is the Bucs list not posted anywhere online…

    Please bust in on these guys and dig up the dirt for us!!!

  7. Clean House Says:

    How do these guys get past the 4 pm deadline? BS

    The Bucs just released it. The 4 p.m. deadline is the time the team has to forward the list to the league. It doesn’t mean the deadline to release the list.

    The last several years, the Bucs have been one of the last teams to release their cutdown list.

    Re Roster cuts and Mike Evans:

    It was great that Evans freed up some $$. I expect that after Vaughn makes the 53 man Roster he gets moved to IR. Same thing with Tyler Johnson. I expect Dare will be back for Saints game. It would be nice if they can extend L David free up some Cap space and get an extra Edge rusher.

  10. SufferingSince76 Says:

    Alter Ego, you’re a mean man talking about the Bucs last QB that way. I think Ndog is his fiancé.

  11. Jack Burton Mercer Says:

    Love the pre hof comment. Hilarious and true.

  12. TheBradyBunch Says:

    Ndog I agree with you. Evans has been putting up HOF with Jameis throwing him the ball and to say otherwise is absurd. You are just hater Altered.

  13. BigHog Says:

    That “You People Movement” so disrespectful..Jamis made them Famous…never lie to your kids!! Late nite snack time::HENNY AND HOG…get yo-self some!

  14. Howard Cosell Says:

    Joe, Howard is getting vertigo from the Bucs.
    WHat the hell is going on anymore? Howard is
    getting anxiety
    1st Brady, then Gronk, then Shady, then LF…..all of our
    good players from last year stayed on….even those
    with contracts ending like Suh. Then Evans restructures.
    Now talking heads are saying Devin White is the next Ray Ray.
    OJ Howard, Chris freakin Godwin….Glazers look like
    pre-season geniuses. WHAT THE HELL ID GOING ON, MAN?

  15. Issac haggins Says:

    Evans is Great but there have been a few Avg corners that have great press skills thT have shut him beyond the fk down …… I mean shut the fk down in single Ass coverage …….. Tom don’t get to proud about your practice talent , which I think isntto bad but it isn’t a live game ………. hvwatched numerous-games where Mike can’t shake a scheme or a great press corner!!!!! so all can’t be great at everything but believe it or not he must lengthen his routes when he is getting handled like a bitch at the line . It’s is going to be hard to press him this year !!

    -every sane Bucs fan

  17. Cobraboy Says:

    Did Winston make Evans, or was Evans a lifeline for Winston?

    Seems that Winston always had decent WR and TE talent that made him look decent.

  18. Rod Munch Says:

    We have Tom Brady and the season starts next week and yet we still have all these anti-Winston idiots still obsessed with him. It’s really amazing. It’s like TDS, just WDS. Move on morons.

  19. Howard Cosell Says:

    Evans made Johnny Maziel into a star.
    Case closed.

  20. Hodad Says:

    Howard Cosell, you took the words right out of my mouth. By the way, I met the real Howard Cosell when I was in high school. I was surprised how big he was.

    Hater?… watch how many times TB hits ME in stride for big YACs… and then remember all the criticism of ME for going to the ground after making A catch from “ you know who”

  22. Oneilbucs Says:

    Well I guess the media has been lieing to yall for a long time and I’m glad that I’m one of the ones that never bought into what the media says . So the same way you guys are saying that the wr made Jamies looked good . Then Jerry Rice made Joe Montana , Mark Duper made Dan Marino , Shannon Sharp made Elway est.. So what it sounds like to me that Football is a team game so let’s killed the hold all you need is a quarterback and quarterbacks win and lose games . And this year was a proven fact when we brought in 4 runningbacks and we drafted a offensive liman in the first round since for ever . So all yall need to stop looking for a scapegoat and look at the team in a hole and not one guy . Win are lose this year it will not be because of one guy it will because of the team . And that’s a fact !!!!! Go Bucs ….

  23. BigHog Says:

    Cobraboy: just the kind of question you would expect from a member of the YOU PROPLE MOVEMENT… My question to you is if NE12 has a more than great year this season, would it be because ME13 and the gang made him look great or would your view be there goes THE GOAT!! No need to answer. Let me grab this last piece of chicken…HENNY AND HOG get yo-self some!!
