Massive Bounceback

September 20th, 2020

Mike Evans went from two yards receiving last Sunday to 104 today.

His effort was desperately needed with Chris Godwin out, and the greatest receiver in Tampa Bay history stepped up.

Evans had 5 catches for 91 yards and a touchdown in the first half, which really set the tone for the Bucs and certainly helped open up the Panthers defense and hinder their confidence.

Evans had a deep catch-and-run, and some very tough yards underneath on third downs — the kinds of balls you might have thought would go to Rob Gronkowski.

Joe’s just dropping appreciation for Evans here, who didn’t have Godwin around to take away some of his double teams. Evans set the tone early and it was critical to the victory, especially since the Bucs offense went turtle mode late before Leonard Fournette exploded.

  3. ElioT Says:

    Evans is a beast!

    Can’t wait till they get the three TEs involved.

  4. Casual Observer Says:

    You are right about Evans. He is the best WR in the game. Reliable.

    Our young secondary play very well!

    You see Evans finally getting some yac? Even he was so shocked he looked clumsy and awkward. He didn’t know how to run it. It’s been too long since he had the opportunity 😂

    Be nice when our WR corps gets healthy. Gonna take a game or 2 to get this offense humming. Fournette’s explosion should help going forward. Brady is a finesse QB, his play is based on timing. That takes game reps, I’m not sweating that just yet. He has the resume that says he’ll get right. Just need to win by any means necessary until it comes together offensively. Nice to see some reliability in the kicking game, been awhile.

    Evans made a good block on the Fournette TD run too.

  12. Coburn Says:

    Lol at yqc comment. Yeah that’s what happens when your qb delivers in stride. Couldn’t help but chuckle when they said Brady got call out low to protect his receiver and I thought Hmm . Who would often throw high and he them clocked?

    Tyler Johnson, allying Tyler Johnson, your opportunity awaits you

    Obviously the trolls do not actually watch the game and some of them are still the butt hurt JW fans.

    That first big play to ME`13 Brady led him perfectly…hit him in the hands and set up some serous YAC. That is something that was rare last year.

    buc n a. Got anything nice to say? Miserable you are.

  16. Oneilbucs Says:

    Man this is the only thing I’ve been asking for the past 4 years . And now we finally did it this week . We don’t need a quarterback to throw 45 times a game like we did the last 4 years . I will take wins like this ever week . Go bucs ….

  17. Craig Says:

    ME13 did a lot in the first half, but faded in the second.

    It is going to take a few more weeks for the players to get into shape.

    Lol. Good one.

  19. Buccfan37 Says:

    Evans did look back on track in his push for the record breaking 1,000 yard season streak.

  20. SufferingSince76 Says:

    “Weanie” Brady and his off target noodle arm won the game. That’s all that’s required. Don’t be a troll.

  21. SOEbuc Says:

    I knew he would have some sort of bounce back with a game under his belt and film and practice. Waiting for Godwin to return for the double duo. And I wasn’t able to watch the game, but I know Gronk was 0 for 0 and OJ got 11 yards. Just looked at Cam Brate stats for the game and there was nothing on there??? Was he injured or just didn’t get a single target. The Brady and Gronk media sh!t is over. Get Brate in there for the genius one year $10 million Gronk.

    ^^What did Donovan Smith and Tristan Wirfs look like today?^^
