“Everywhere He Goes”

January 20th, 2022

What a compliment it is to hear future a Hall of Fame wide receiver barking to the nation that the Rams need to wake up and take Mike Evans out of Sunday’s game.

Yeah, Evans is that good and Rams legend Torry Holt knows it.

Joe listened to Holt on Rams House Radio on SiriusXM NFL Radio this week. He is not in favor of the Rams playing a lot of zone defense against Evans and moving stud cornerback Jalen Ramsey around the field.

No, Holt was sending a message to Rams defensive coordinator Raheem Morris that he must blanket the greatest receiver in Buccaneers history.

“If I’m Raheem, I’m thinking about having Jalen travel with Mike Evans everywhere he goes. Everywhere he goes,” Holt said. “… This is Mike Evans now. You gotta press him and make it difficult for him.”

Holt, from a Rams perspective, is concerned about the Bucs’ precision short passing game and former Rams linebacker London Fletcher had the same concern. Neither is confident the Rams will pressure Brady enough to stop it.

The hope from the Rams alumni is that Los Angeles can copy the Saints’ model of a balanced and consistent pass rush against the Bucs —  with enough pressing “dogs” for defensive backs to be effective.

    I’d feel a LOT better if Tristan Wirfs was playing. He hasn’t been ruled out yet, but let’s be real. He ain’t playing.

  2. Jp09 Says:

    Not sure what Morris is doing with Ramsey, not sure why that guy isn’t on the #1 every week. Rams D is overrated considering the talent they have. Bucs win 31-24

  3. Chris@Apple Roof Cleaning Tampa Says:

    I think Evans is too big, and too good to cover with just one person. I expect the Rams to double him Sunday.

  4. Dew Says:

    Brady is not happy coaches are interviewing instead of game planning imo. Union not looking out for players that want to win at all costs. Brady needs to run the players union when he retires.

  5. Scooter Says:

    This is a payback game for Gronk.

  6. Bellingham Bucs Fan Says:

    Time to embarrass Ramsay.

  7. Alvin Scissors Harper Says:

    We’re gonna win this game.

  8. godlovesbucs Says:

    I think the best thing about this is that Ramsey is the only guy that has a chance to cover Evans and Gronk 1 on 1. That means you have to double whoever Ramsey doesn’t cover. That will allow backs, brate and Tyler/perriman to have a game.

  9. Listnfrmafar Says:

    Ramsey shut him down last game. Why wouldn’t they do the same again?

  10. fern Says:

    Hope we score 50
    I’m tired of everyone with the Rams

  11. Dew Says:

    Rewatching the game vs the Rams in week three it appears neither JPP or J Whitehead played in that game. On offense AB didn’t play & Gronk & J Dean went out early with injuries. We owe Floyd a big big hit.

  12. Dew Says:

    Correct that. Whitehead played but SMB didn’t.

  13. Pickgrin Says:

    Ramsey is very good.

    But I’m guessing Big Mike will still get the better of him on a few plays – even if 13 does get “shadowed” all game by their best CB…..

  14. Lokog Says:

    I just wanna win by any means payback for 1999

  15. BucsBeBack (Artist formally known as: BringBucsBack) Says:

    Lokogs, & 1979!

  16. NeverGIVEup Says:

    Look for lots of PIs against the Rams this game AND that being their excuse as to why they get beat.

  17. Lokog Says:

    I wasn’t even swimming in my dads testicles in 1979 I’m a 1985 baby. What happend in 1979? I need to be schooled

  18. Jmarkbuc Says:


    In our fourth year of existence after the worst beginning in history our defense carried us all the way to the NFC championship game where we lost to the Rams. 9-0.

  19. Bob Says:

    We have this as long as playoff lenny is ready to go.

    Screens all day from the pass rush.

  20. Dew Says:

    It was LB Terrell Lewis #52 that injured Gronk in that game.

  21. SB~LV Says:

    It’s been done before , the names behind the starters lost to injury or mental illness are going to have to make big play after big play.

  22. Lokog Says:

    Man, twice in the playoffs against the rams I hate them even more now we have to beat them

  23. Navfree17 Says:


    Ramsey did not shut ME13 down last game. ME13 had 8 for 106 yards. What makes you think it will be any different this time?

  24. Swampbuc Says:

    If you get Mike in motion it’s easier for him to avoid the press.

    Boron – listen up! If you’re not too busy with your interview schedule that is.

  25. Daryl Green Says:

    👍🏾 Swamp, get him in the slot and in motion.
    Scotty needs to be in the slot also.
    All quiet on Jon Brown front( nothing in the media)
    I like that👊🏾

  26. Daryl Green Says:

    Rams always gives me worries.
    Those games has always been epic.

  27. Francisco Guzman Says:

    Defense has to play well to have any chance and other players have to step up on offense.

  28. NE+bucs fan Says:

    The key to us winning is scoring more points than the Rams,,lol captain obvious

    Thinking is not his, eh-em, Strong point.

  30. Swampbuc Says:

    Daryl Green — spot on and BTW, get yourself some pads and a helmet and get out there — we need you to help guard Cooper Kupp!

  31. dmatt Says:

    We had a monster defense during that time but we never had an offense. They played lights out during that game. Doug Williams was the offense but he got hurt. He was hounded n harassed by the Youngblood brothers. We had receivers that were regulars on nfl bloopers n they couldn’t catch a cold. Years later Kevin House became the first sure handed consistent Buc’s receiver. In 1979, our OL n receivers were 2nd to none.

  32. adam from ny Says:

    see brate vs washington in last years playoff match up…

    more of that is needed sunday

  33. adam from ny Says:

    one guy is definitely going to have to step up out of the receiver group besides evans and gronk…




  34. David Says:

    Man I wish Wirfs was healthy !!!
    Since he’s not, I do agree they won’t get pressure to stop the short passes. Brady is too good at it. I am not sure if he’ll have time beyond a medium pass though. I don’t think the Rams are as good at tight press coverage.

  35. BillyBucco Says:

    @List if you call 8 receptions for 106 yds shutting Evans down then he might have 150 and 3 TDs this game.

  36. Reddington Neck Shores Says:

    The only guy I see who chokes more than Qaaron Rodgers is Aaron Donald. Maybe it’s an A-A-Ron thing?

  37. Bob in valrico Says:

    Rams have added to Von Miller to an already good D Line. Our O line is going to have their hands full. Brady will need a little extra time for him to find enough open targets downfield occasionally. It will be difficult to win if Brady is forced to just rely on the short passing game. If that happens hopefully GIO or Bell can
    add a little wiggle to our offense.

  38. Idahobucfan4life Says:

    In games like this, it always seems to come down to what no one is talking about: In this case, it’s the Bucaneers defense against the Rams offense. If the D brings it, they’ll shut the Rams O down and give the Bucs a fighting chance. Without a good showing by the defense it’ll be tough sledding for this injury-riddled Buccaneer offense. The defense has to play inspired football though, like they did in last years playoff run. The D is healthy for the most part, thank goodness, and they’re capable. Let’s go!!!!

  39. Listnfrmafar Says:

    Navarre, all in garbage time.

  40. DavidBigBucFan99 Says:

    Francisco why do you keep repeating the same tired dribble post after post??? It’s so asinine. I mean who doesn’t know the entire team has to play lights out to win? It’s the playoffs! Duuuihhh! You mean to tell me even though we have the same record and they got embarrassed in some games as we did yet you think they’re so much better than us? We have a better qb who is the GOAT and you have no confidence in him and the coaches? You act as if we’re paper mache champions and can’t beat a legitimate team even though we have. If you don’t believe in the Bucs I hope you don’t watch the game.

    Idaho we don’t talk about it because we’re all aware that this defense has given up 27 or more to them in the last 3 games. We all know what the Bucs need to do in order to win but you bet your bottom dollar the coaches and players know too.

    We need to have some faith in the boys because they’re not playing the Saints defense and the defense came out last week and crushed the Philthy Eagles

  41. Idahobucfan4life Says:

    “Philthy” Eagles….Haha! Nice one!

  42. TampabayDJ82 Says:

    LISTNFRMAFAR- ALL IN GARBAGE TIME ?? WHEN IS THE LAST GAME THE BUCS HAVE BEEN IN “GARBAGE TIME” ? EXCEPT WHEN THEY ARE WINNING BY 20+ IN THE 4TH QUARTER !! AND I WATCHED THAT GAME , HE DIDN’T HAVE ALL THOSE YARDS IN THE 4th !! Was throughout the ENTIRE GAME .. GO BUCS .. And I don’t want to hear all you bandwagon fans when the Bucs win tomorrow !!
