    Limit his plays to red zone only. With AB, there is no reason to let Evans put stress on the injury. He needs to be 100% next week.

  2. rrsrq Says:

    Hopefully 20+ ahead at the half, no need to play in the second half.

  3. Durango 95 Says:

    Bang the gong and get it on!

  4. Mike in LOL Says:

    LFG Big Mike!! You been working for this for so long – time to go out there and get some well deserved playoff time!!

  5. knucknbuc Says:

  6. Buc1987 Says:



    The Bucs are really in the playoffs?

  8. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Was there any much doubt?………Play him as much as he likes…..maybe they’ll decide he doesn’t need a double-team……(for one play)….then will reconsider.

  9. JWBucs Says:

    I hope they minimize Evans as the selected receiver in plays to draw WFT secondary coverage while also avoiding wear on ME13’s legs…

  10. Bucamania Says:

    Good. Evans is the type of dawg you need in the playoffs. Knew he’d play.

  11. adam from ny Says:

    money mike with the mentality…

    north dallas 40 style…

    do it up mik3

  12. Joe in Michigan Says:

    Because, of course he is! That’s Mike Freaking Evans!

  13. TampaTown Says:

    So happy for him! Let him get the start first series then rest him except for a few plays here and there. It’s very underestimated just how tough this guy is and how much he plays hurt. Good Luck Mike you deserve all of this and more.

  14. JimmyJack Says:

    Of course he is going to play. The guy is a warrior. He’d have to be crippled to miss his first playoff game……Even then hed still be trying to get out there.

  15. ocala Says:

    Happy for Mike!

  16. Fernando Diaz Says:

    There was never a doubt in my mind, this guy is a warrior.

  17. Mclovin Says:

    Guess my new mike evans jersey was a good choice! Go Mike! You deserve it man!!

  18. unbelievable Says:

    As soon as we was practicing, I figured he would play, even if it’s limited.

    Let’s get up early so he can rest the 2nd half.

    LFG Bucs! Playoffs baby!!!!!

  19. unbelievable Says:

    *he was practicing

  20. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    I know I’m in the minority, but I wish he would sit this one out. We’ll definitely need a healthy ME13 next week. We shouldn’t need him to beat the WFT.

  21. Davenport Says:

    Alvin … i agree. AB at 100% is better than ME at 80% Let AB take the vast majority of the snaps today.

  22. martinii Says:

    Just for the fact he is on the field Washington will have to realign their secondary. Go Buc’s

  23. bojim Says:

    That pic. How does one defend that?

  24. Bucfanforever Says:

    @bojim – push him out of bounds before he lands

  25. Bucfanforever Says:

    But he is awesome and basically unstoppable

  26. Bucfan81 Says:

    Godzilla returns…

  27. TampaTown Says:

    That is an amazing picture! Remember the height of that crossbar is 10 feet. Crazy

  28. Godlovesbucs Says:

    Gotta let him play, but on a short leash. You get up by 14 and he should sit. Only use him when you need him. Need this win, but he is essential to a playoff run.

  29. David Says:

    Awesome! The O & D lines need to win the battle today.

  30. Coburn Says:

    I worry how much he may be hobbling, but injured Mike seems to actually play well .. just hope it doesn’t set him back for next week

  31. Alaskabuc Says:

    Happy for Mike, he’s busted his @ss a long time and deserves to be on the field today. LFG Bucs!

  32. Listnfrmafar Says:

    First play 15 yd back shoulder will put defense on heels the rest of the game. Use him sparingly.

  33. Miller5252 Says:

    I’m glad he to see he’s going to be able to play his first post season game. My only worry is hurting it more in a game Tampa should win without him. If they do play him, I just wonder if he’s going to stick to routes that don’t have him pushing off that hurt knee.

  34. LVMYBUCS Says:

    Who is playing in White spot on D and is he any good?

  35. Steven007 Says:

    Alex Smith just declared inactive for the game.

  36. richardtyson Says:

    @ LVMYBUCS Kevin Minter. I thought Minter filled in well when White missed time earlier.

  37. Listnfrmafar Says:

    I guess the Black Knight lives to see another day!

  38. Surfslowson Says:

    Alex Smith is out, inactive for the game.

  39. cmurda Says:

    Great news about Mike Evans. By the way, watching the Shehawks game and I thought Jamal Adams was going to be ejected for his hit on the qb meanwhile they picked up the flag. Baffling. The NFL is broken. Don’t throw a flag when a guy gets nailed in the had but soft calls everywhere. Ridiculous

  40. cmurda Says:

    @Tyson. I disagree. I thought Kinter was slow and terrible especially in coverage but he’s a good tackler and that’s probably even more important right now.

  41. Listnfrmafar Says:

    Questionable ball in Bill’s, Indy game. Nevertheless Indy gave them the game. Allen overrated.

  42. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    I kind of wish Alex Smith was gonna be the QB. I don’t think he can throw a ball 20 yards, he can’t push off that knee and he is a statue like Brady, but with none of Brady’s tools. The backup is a real unknown with no film on him and that always makes me nervous. Bucs have made many backup QBs look like all pros.

  43. The Red Mirage Says:

    Suh will play big tonight.

  44. Zwak Says:

    Hopefully as a decoy we will need him 100% if we go deep into the playoffs!

  45. Cobraboy Says:

    Evans is fine. I knew he’d play. That injury was not that bad, just scary.

  46. Brady is a cheater Says:

    Who cares he won’t catch a ball. Brady won’t be able to throw against this club’s pass rush , you all love cheaters and cheaters will never win

  47. Buczilla Says:


  48. JayBucsBoi Says:

    Alex Smith will not!!

  49. Cobraboy Says:

    Alex Smith is inactive vs. Bucs. This could be interesting.

    Expect a lot of RPO from TFTFKATR.

  50. Jmarkbuc Says:


    Forgive me, but ..TFTFKATR??

    Clearly I missed something

  51. Bucfanforever Says:

    The football team formerly known as the redskins -tftfkatr

  52. Robin bell Says:

    Glad mad Mike is back he’s the man has been a long time but save him for next week we have a lot of wapons go BUCS

  53. Jmarkbuc Says:

    Well Damn, and I’m a Prince fan.. shoulda got that one.

    WFT or WTF woulda been easier 😂

    Thanks bucfanforever

  54. TampaTown Says:

    Anybody else getting nervous? I’ve got butterflies in my stomach. I need to start pounding some cold ones

  55. Bucfanforever Says:

    I prefer WFTWTF

  56. Cometowin2 Says:

    I hope I live to see his HOF induction. All the qualities of the best of all time with unmatched toughness and without being a diva. First to project him for the HOF early in his 3rd season.

    Go Mike!!! Go Bucs!!!

  57. Jmarkbuc Says:

    1 hour til GAMETIME!!!

  58. Rod Munch Says:

    Sounds like Alex Smith is indeed out – so the Bucs have no excuses not to win this. If the Bucs can win and we can get the Bears to win, then the Bucs would host the Rams, who might be down Donald and Cupp. You can’t luck your way to the Super Bowl, except you actually can, just look at the 1999 St Louis Scams who played the softest schedule in football, then had the refs hand them the game against Tampa.

  59. DoooshLaRue Says:

    Is Joe taking a nap?

  60. Jeagan1999 Says:

    come on boys! This is what you play for!

    Play fast!
    Play smart!
    Play together!

    Go win a playoff game and live to fight again!

  64. Bucfan81 Says:

    To much brew for joe we need open game forum.

  65. Miller5252 Says:

    Let’s go Joe!!! Starting it off bad here!

  66. DoooshLaRue Says:

    Ndog broke into the JBF main frame and put Joe in moderation!

  67. Miller5252 Says:

    Hey yo let’s go Joe!

  68. TampaTown Says:
