13 Games, 92 Catches, 1,044 Yards

December 12th, 2021

Joe and fellow Bucs fans are witnessing something very special, and it’s not just the Bucs’ 10-3 record (a new franchise best) and their stunning 18 victories in their last 21 games.

Joe’s talking about Chris Godwin hauling in another 10 balls today for 105 yards. Now he’s got 92 catches for 1,044 yards in just 13 games this season.

Barring injury, Godwin will shatter Keyshawn Johnson’s franchise record of 106 catches in a regular season back in 2001.

Bucco Bruce Arians was adamant over the past week that Godwin is specifically rewarded with a ton of balls not only because he gets open, but because he blocks like a madman. You block, says Arians, then you will get fed the football on his team.

It’s the same philosophy Arians took with Larry Fitzgerald when Arians arrived in Atlanta. And it’s worked perfectly in Tampa.

Today, Tom Brady even had a couple of bad throws in Godwin’s direction with still-25-year-old Godwin wide open.

Yes, the Bucs will pay Godwin an ungodly sum to retain his services in 2022. Brady will demand it. Common sense will demand it. Hopefully a second Super Bowl ring and another Godwin Pro Bowl honor demands it, too.

    Such a great player. Great pick by Licht. BA and co. have molded him into a complete package. Hope he’s a Nice for the rest of his career.

  3. Adam C Wade Says:

    Whatever Bucs fans sold their tickets to Bill’s fans need their season tickets revoked. Disgusting

    Now, let’s win the last 4 and watch GB lose a game. We can beat the Cardinals in the desert, but I sure as hell don’t want to go to Lambeau in January. Last year, no fans and it wasn’t that terribly cold.

  8. Dewey Selmon Says:

    Best WR in Buccaneer history isn’t the guy with 8- 1,000 yard seasons.

    There are really few ways to sell tickets anymore other than ticket resale sites.
    So if you can not go to a game, or choose not to go, it basically goes to the highest bidders.

    That is how I go to an away game every year.

    A 200 ticket was reselling for 700 for this Buffalo game. If you buy season tickets, you can decide which games you want to sell. Helps for all those years you could not even give away tickets to games season ticket holders were going to miss.

    Just sayin …we 2-0 in the red and white unis

  15. Oneilbuc Says:

    I love these kinds of wins !!! Go bucs!!!

  16. firethecannons Says:

    Mike Evans was no slouch either! The tight ends were quiet!

  17. Rod Munch Says:

    Also, Evans had another professional day, 6 catches, 91 yards, 1 TD.

    I thought he’d have 2 TDs today, but for whatever stupid reason *cough Leftwich cough*, the offense just didn’t do anything in the 2nd half.

    Still, Evans was 6-for-6. Should have looked for him more as he was catching everything you threw at him.

  18. Craig Says:

    Godwin isn’t just a great receiver, he is a football player. You don’t even need to ask him to do something, he knows what to do.

    It would be great to see him be the top receiver of the league, and get paid for it.

  19. Buczilla Says:

    Another fantastic day for Godwin and I hope that Licht’s plan to keep this dude is firmly in place. I got a couple of grey hairs watching this game, but it was sure as hell fun.

  20. G.Marosi Says:

    Been a Bucs fan since the early 80’s and this is the most excited I have been to watch our Buc’s on Sunday’s. Great games yesterday but the Bills almost took it away. Great Teams, SuperBowl winning teams find a way to win and TB12 & BP and the O-Line, Godwin, Evans with the catch of season plus Gronk & Defense played to win! Unless some crazy sh*t happens I see us finishing #3 seed into playoffs! #GoBucs!

  21. Doug Says:

    I have been a Bucs fan since I moved here in 1991so I have endured some lean years. Go Bucs!! Fire the cannons!! Raise the flags!!!

  22. Pryda...Sec147 Says:

    Sickening how many bulls fans there were I understand the last year or so we’ve had a migration from the NE but it can’t be this bad !

  23. Cnote Says:

    None of this addresses the elephant in the room. Noteably, the defense sucked the second half, this needs to be addressed. If They play like that against Green Bay or Arizona, they may be in trouble.

    ME13, LVD, WillG, and ungodly CG14. My favorite Bucs and class acts off the field. Pay up, Glazer Boyz!
