Jason Licht Read The Eyes

January 9th, 2022

Screw the shaky hamstring. It was no factor today and it was not going to be.

Mike Evans was more than ready to bring the juice against the Panthers and get into playoff mode. Joe knew this before the game because general manager Jason Licht made it clear without hesitation.

Speaking moments before kickoff on the team’s pregame radio show, Licht called Evans “a monster on the field” and Licht said he could tell that Evans was about to dominate in a big way.

“I can see it in his eyes this week that he’s ready to take over,” Licht said.

Joe listens to the GM every week and Licht is not one to make those kinds of bold claims, especially when it comes to an injured player or a guy who isn’t 100 percent. So Joe was all fired up for Evans to have a bold day, and he delivered with two touchdowns and angry after-the-catch running that told the NFL world he is 100 percent.

Man, if Licht says something like this about Leonard “Playoff Lenny” Fournette or Bucs sacks king Shaq Barrett during his next visit to the Buccaneers Radio Network, Joe will absolutely be wildly fist-pumping in ecstasy.

    Proud to have been among the “Evans at 7” squad here on JBF

    I think M1k3 heard the rumblings of a former disgraced teammate claiming he was the best WR on the team.

  4. Mike Says:

    Mike is a humble guy but also has pride in his work. He was ready to show the team he can carry us if need be. Message delivered.

  5. Dew Says:

    Evans is a monster. Hope he wins the Walter Payton Man of the Year award.

    And I am so happy the slimy Saints are done for the year.

    Mk13 is the best! He brings it every week! And when TB12 has a week of practice with the young recievers it shows!

    I am so pumped after this win. Love Evans as a players but even more so as a person and yeah, I believe AB’s comment that he was the best WR the Bucs had lit a fire under all of our wide receivers today. All of them played like they had a chip on their shoulders.

    Now lets take that Chip and slaughter some Eagles next weekend!!

    I can’t tell you how bad I want Evans to go full beast mode in the playoffs. To me, that’s all he needs to lock up that Gold Jacket.

  10. PassingThru Says:

    Evans and Gronk were huge today, and Perriman deserves an honorable mention as he’s had very little time to develop chemistry with Brady.

  11. Listnfrmafar Says:

    The best thing that could happen to the Bucs is Roger’s winning the MVP. A pissed of Brady is awfully good.

  12. JimmyJack Says:

    Evans won us the game today. And thats not easy to do when Gronk has 150.

    What do you have to say cmurda now?!!!

  14. firethecannons Says:

    Yeah Saints did not make the playoffs–glad! Seeing them fail is almost as good as a Bucs win. Seeing cam jordan and the cornerback who always gets Evans (he is a nobody–cannot even remember his damn name) oh yeah lattimore those guys once again don’t go anywhere in the playoffs–this year did not even make the playoffs SWEET they need to buy a quarterback for really big money or draft one for a boatload of picks Ian Book aint the future just like kyle trask aint our future. doubt Payton will keep tameis going forward

  15. Bucs since 76 Says:

    Tyler Johnson needs to put in a lot of extra work he has talent but half the he has no idea what he is supposed to do

  16. David Says:

    That route Evans ran on his first TD catch told me everything I need to know about his hamstring… They are both fine.

    Based on what I saw online it sure seems Lenny is going to be back real close to a 100%. I sure hope Shaq and JPP are ready to bring it!!!

  17. Smitty Says:

    Turning upfield to hit someone, instead of making for the sideline was a message to the others.

    Love Mike Evans. That wasn’t the case when he took a knee for the flag a couple years back. I sent my kids Evans jersey back to One Buc Place. I think he was young and got wrapped up into a bunch of non sense, but he figured it out and developed into one of the best Bucs of all time (One of them – not saying he’s over Brooks). He is a fantastic football player that loves the game.

  19. HomerSimpsonRocks Says:

    He was knocking people over and ploughing past DBs.

    Brady’s Twitter or tweet , whatever you call it , was HILARIOUS TODAY AND HE MADE SURE HE SHOWED EVANS CATCHING HIS 2 TOUCHDOWNS AND PLAYED PETTY PABLO , The one about “TAKE YOUR SHIRT OFF” was a great way to tell AB that he wasn’t the best WR on the team !! Lmao … GO BUCS and GO EVANS
