Mike Evans Names Corners Who Give Him A Fight

February 13th, 2022

What CB challenges him?

Bucs stud wide receiver has been the most consistent baller at receiver in the NFL for years. Still, it’s sad that so many folks will pick their top-three receivers and you don’t often see Evans among them. Guess that’s the fantasy football indoctrination in society. #Sad

So Evans, who has never had a season in the NFL with less than 1,000 yards receiving, in an online chat on Bleacher Report, cited the three corners that give him the biggest battles.

And Joe is confident Bucs fans can name two of them right off the top of their heads.

The one CB who gives you way too many problems is ___

When they’re by themselves, I like my chances. Certain teams, they got a really good game plan with guys over the top and leverage. I definitely get one-on-ones. I would say Marshon Lattimore, Jalen Ramsey and James Bradberry—those three guys always make for a battle.

This is one reason Joe thought it was so cool that Evans, in Tom Brady’s final touchdown pass, caught a bomb against mouthy Jalen Ramsey. That was sweet as can be.

Joe sure hopes Evans can extend that 1,000-yard streak to nine seasons. But Joe wouldn’t bet on it right now, today. Why? Well, tell Joe is will be throwing Evans the ball and then Joe may bank on Evans.

Right now, we have no clue who will be the Bucs quarterback.

    despite the outcome, that touchdown over whiny Ramsey was so sweet

    Kinda think that when Godwin is healthy, the coverage that ME13 draws is probably quite a bit different. Defending BOTH of them simultaneously obviously makes the CBs jobs more challenging, but I would think that getting Safety help changes quite a bit too.

    Just read an interesting SI piece from Feb 9th about Bucs’ FAs. Their ‘costs’ differed from Spotrac’s somewhat, but at this point it’s anybody’s guess what the market will bear.

    They had Godwin projected to receive a 4-yr $70 mil contract ($17.5 mil/yr) with $36.5 mil guaranteed. That’s actually less than what I thought he’d command if he tests the market.

    Davis they projected to be franchise-tagged at a cost of $17-$15.5 mil for the year. Their rationale was holding off on a long-term contract because of Carlton’s injury history.

    Whitehead they thought would get a 3-yr $18 mil contract ($6 mil/yr) with $11.5 mil guaranteed. That’s the same that Vonn Bell got (similar Safeties they feel).

    Fournette they projected to get a 2-yr $16 mil contract ($8 mil/yr) with $11 mil guaranteed. They also projected that we’d let RoJo & Gio walk. Personally hope that we re-sign Gio.

    Jensen they projected with a 3-yr $30 mil contract ($10 mil.yr) with $15 mil guaranteed. Personally hope that works out because IMO he sets the tone for this OLine.

    Same folks seemed unsure on re-signing Cappa. Leverett’s under contract & he’s shown some good potential. Stinnie’s a FA, as is Wells, but I suspect the Bucs will press to bring both of them back. Still unsure how ready Hainsey is to be a starter.

    Thanks for the numbers…good thing inflation doesn’t affect the player salaries because of the cap….too bad our Government doesn’t have a cap.

    He got 1k with McCown, so he will be fine.

    I have no words!

    TBBF – There is actually a government spending debt limit. Trouble is, every time the debt approached the limit congress votes to increase it. I just wish the government would live within their means (spending < proceeds) like every American has to do.

    Regarding CBs who give Evans trouble, I guessed the first two and I've only been a Bucs fan for these past two years.

  7. PSL Bob Says:

    I like ME13 gave respect to those 3 players. His value in their eyes just went up. I’d love to see the same question asked of them – what 3 receivers give them the most problem. Wonder if Evans would be on the list?

  8. #1bucsfan Says:

    Bucszilla my thoughts exactly. He had mclown n glennon throwing him the ball n he still got it. I personally like glennon n think he got shafted by lovie. But that’s in the past.

  9. Swampbuc Says:

    Maybe if the Bowels of Todd were to apologize to Brady and lay out his plan and commitment as to how he will fix his secondary so they actually learn their assignments, and fix his blitz packages so sometimes they actually result in pressure, and then commit to pay attention to situational football and never leave the best WR in all of football unguarded at the most critical moment of the season – perhaps that would be enough for Tom to tell his Horsefaced Commandant to hit the beach in Costa Rica for another year.


    Thanks, Todd.

    Deshaun Watson and Evans and hopefully Godwin… hell yeah… get your popcorn ready.

    Remember Joe mike got his first 1000 yards from Josh mccown and mike glennon I think he will be fine
