Hall Of Fame Honors Mike Evans With A Display; Devin White Activated

January 10th, 2021

Mike Evans inked two more impressive lines on his resume yesterday.

The first came before the Washington game, when the Pro Football Hall of Fame finally announced it has secured Evans’ cleats and jersey from his record-setting game one week ago. Against the Falcons last Sunday, Evans hit 1,000 yards receiving for the season, and that set the NFL record for most consecutive seasons (7) with 1,000 yards or more to start a career.

(See the Tweet from the Hall and their new Evans display below.)

The next accolade came when Evans returned from an ugly-looking knee injury in just six days to not just play last night, but Evans rang up 119 yards on six catches in his first playoff game.

What more can be said about the greatest receiver in Buccaneers history?

Next week against the Rams or Saints, Evans will be joined by savior linebacker Devin White, who is all jacked up to play after missing two games on the NFL’s “crazy” COVID-19 list. That’s White’s adjective, as you can see below.

    ME13=Greatness

  2. Rod Munch Says:

    Evans had 119 yards and was clearly not playing at full speed, what a hell of a player.

  3. Coburn Says:

    Hopefully Evans is feeling even better next week. Expect white to provide a spark on d. Should have fresh legs after a couple weeks off

  4. Coburn Says:

    Hopefully another week helps Davis as well and isn’t too sore after this game

  5. Jimmy Says:

    If he extends it to 8 next year to do they take the jersey from that game as well?

  6. MagicMarpet Says:

    He’ll have a bust in there too eventually if he keeps up his high standard and this team keeps winning ball games. His evolution and maturity since he came into the league has been outstanding. He was a hothead who got in his own head many times and now he’s a true leader. Love him. Go Bucs!

  7. Court XXXVII Says:

    I love how the jersey in the Hall’s display shows ample signs of wear and tear. Check out the dirt and field stains. Mike is a force of nature and a joy to watch battle and play.

  8. Leighroy Says:

    That’s awesome! Keep those cleats far away from soggy RayJay

  9. OHBucFan Says:

    That’s worth the drive to Canton for this Buc fan. Check out the TB game ball beside it. Bucs getting some love.

  10. TampaTown Says:

    He plays in pain all the time. His toughness is underestimated

  11. Allbuccedup Says:

    The most deserving player in the NFL.

  12. TAMPABAY55 Says:

    OVERRATED!!!!

    Right, Npuppy?

  13. Jonathan Limpchimpi Says:

    There’s the nod from The Hall Joe was looking/asking for! Unbelievable streak of 7 for first 7 seasons as a receiver…a tough transition position from college to the NFL. Glad they didn’t take Ira’s advice and sit Evans for this one. With Godwin batting passes down left and right, no Evans = no win. Ira’s advice on menu selections at breweries remains the best in the business, however. 🙂

    Hopefully white has been watching film and learning how to cover rb’s and te’s

    Mike Evans writes yet another Bucs record, a week after appearing to shred his knee in his first playoffs. While Godwin swung the momentum the other way with drops all over the place. Look I love Godwin, the nicest human ever and love what he does for Dogs – but I dont want to read any comments ever again who the man is on this team. It is Mr. Mike Evans, it is HE that is our bonafied number one receiver

  16. Señor Harry in Costa Rica Says:

    @gofortheface, you nailed it.

    ME was like a man among boys last night. SO happy for him. All these years with no playoffs. 119 yards on 6 catches after being questionable (to others) for the whole week. What a warrior.

    Oline, you guys are freaking amazing. That was a great WFT defense and our Oline gave TB all the time he needed to rip up the WFT secondary. Watched Donny Smith pancake Young, not once but several times. Same with Gronk; man can he block! Suddenly Fournette can run? LF had almost 100 yards with an average of 4.9y/c. Thank you Oline.

  17. Chris Boyd Says:

    there were a lot of us who wanted mike to sit this game, and admittedly, i was kinda on the fence, but we dont win that game without me13 last night. what a stud.

  18. PSL Bob Says:

    Sunday morning, I was deciding whether to wear my Evans (white) or Godwin (pewter) jersey. I thought the Bucs might be wearing white, so I went with Evans, even though I thought his injury might limit his playing time. As it turned out, I couldn’t have made a better choice! Evans was spectacular. Wonder if I had worn my pewter jersey if Godwin still would have had the dropsies? Like it matters what I’m wearing! Although there is that Dr. Pepper commercial.

  19. Deepdowner Says:

    ME13 is a monster……

  20. StonedBuc Says:

    If mike can finish’s this playoffs off with a td in the next couple games and carry lead the team in yards he will Go down as a goat.

  21. SlyPirate Says:

    That cross field, scramble pass to Evans (featured in the image) was my favorite play of the game.

  22. chris L Says:

    mike evans is my favourite player ever. what he did last night i dont think is being talked about enough by people. even his 1000 yard 7 seasons in a row. 6 days after hyperextending his knee, people thought he would just be a decoy. he DOMINATED. after each play it seemed like he kept coming up limp or re-injuring that knee or something yet there he was two plays later back in. unbelievable. him and brate were the best bucs last night as was brady. just unbelieveable. he is a true warrior.

  23. Ghost of Darrell Henderson Says:

    I love those pewter jersies and thanks to ME13 there will be one hanging in Canton for the next year.

    Hopefully, they’ll auction it off for charity when he sends a replacement jersey next year.

  24. PSK Bucs Fan Says:

    ME13 his jersey is there waiting for him. Man I love those pewter Jerseys.

  25. stpetebucsfan Says:

    Well deserved and for the consummate team player. It looked bad for ME’s stats when Godwin blew up and then we add AB.

    He just kept putting his head down and playing. He’s the TOTAL package.

    So Godwin had a bad game…he dropped more passes last night that perhaps his career total. Will he be motivated next week? AB has quietly found his very effective spot in this group. Gronk blocked his arse off last night while Brate got the glory.

    I LOVE this team because they are a TEAM. Yeah Tom Brady gets a lion’s share of the credit but ME13 is right up there with him. We have no divas and it’s in large part due to the example set by our best receiver which started long before TB12 arrived.

  26. The Daily Coroner Says:

    That would actually be January, 3 2021. Oops.

  27. LakelandSteve Says:

    Did anyone really think after watching that hideous play with Evans knee going in the wrong direction that he was even going to play again this season. I didn’t! Is Evans even human? He’s like some kind of Cyborg who gets hurt, no one thinks he could play and he comes in and plays out of his mind. You can’t tell me that he wasn’t in pain last night with that knee, yet he gets over 100 yards for the game making some clutch catches in the process. Surprisingly Joe, it seems like your the only one talking about it. Evans is a throwback player from days long gone where if you were hurt but somehow could still walk you better be playing. Bucs fan we better enjoy this while we can. We got the G.O.A.T. playing quarterback and a Hall of Fame wide receiver who if not the best receiver of his generation he damn sure is the toughest.

  28. gp Says:

    That jersey is just keeping a space warm for 7 years after he retires and his bust is unveiled.

  29. Leslie OPYD Says:

    Most under rated reciever! He is great!! On a differant note. Bears holding saints to 7 but there offence sucks! Guess wexwill play the saints. If our d can do the same, our offence will be killer!

  30. RustyRhinos Says:

    Yeah let’s trade this WR while he is still worth something to trade for. How many times have we all read that.
    Congratulations Mike Evans! A well earned first for this franchise.

  31. Anonymous Says:

    Big Mike should not see the practice field this week…maybe walk thrues!!!

  32. Buczilla Says:

    Awesome accomplishment.

  33. Eric Brierton Says:

    Stats are good and all but its nothing compared to a ring…we cant be dropping balls like this though…our oline played great we need to do the same thing agains NO pass rush is deadly..have gronk protect his bro again…defense please play man coverage against brees he will eat up zone all day long..we did very good with our run game and the balanced attack…if we had rojo against WFT he would of broke through and it wouldnt have been close we can still one two punch with him and LF….lets get it 3rd time is a charm!!!
