“It Seems Like They Have A Natural Vibe”

August 6th, 2022

“You like that, TB? We’re just gettin’ started.”

Lost Decade Bucs fans will remember the instant chemistry Cameron Brate had with Jameis Winston. It stood out in training camp and ran into the regular season.

After not playing as a 2014 rookie and getting cut and landing on the Saints practice squad, Brate returned and found 30 targets in 2015 — and caught 23 for 288 yards and three touchdowns. A year later he was in the Pro Bowl conversations with 8 TDs and 57 catches as the Bucs marched to a 9-7 record.

That quick chemistry is back to the practice field again in the form of Tom Brady and newcomer receiver Russell Gage. It’s the kind of stuff you can’t teach.

Brady says strong receiver-QB chemistry can take three to five years.

It seems a lot faster than that with Gage, and Todd Bowles addressed it after practice today. “It seems like they have natural vibe,” Bowles said, noting Gage knows how to get open and it’s obvious.

Joe is drooling. Can opening night get here already!?!

    Not to mention the chemistry between Gage and Julio. If they are Batman and Robin.

    Mike and Chris are Trump and DeSantis.

    To Soon???

    Much needed signing. Not only because of godwin but evans about to turn 29. Hopefully we dont see it this year but its not entirely out of ordinary to see a dip in production from him in a year or so

  3. Bucs Win Says:

    Gage will ball out this year.

  4. D-Rok Says:

    Now we can all more fully appreciate why Brady reached out to Gage – the guy can get open. Gage is like a clone of Godwin, but slimmer and quicker. Perfect combination of skill-sets for our 2 slot WR’s. Really like this addition.

  5. Jason Says:

    This is why Gage will have more yards, receptions, and TD’s than Evans. TB12 likes to throw to the open man, and Evans never gets separation.

    I miss Medicated Pete. Lol.

    Medicated pete might just be using a dif handle these days.

  7. LakelandSteve Says:

    Jason says that Mike Evans never gets separation. OMG, do you actually watch Bucs football games? Evans usually gets the other teams best corner on him and gets doubled a lot and he still wins against intense coverage. If by separation you mean open by 20 yards, that doesn’t happen. He has started his career with 8 consecutive 1,000 yard seasons. The only man in NFL history to do that. The man is a future Hall of Famer, but he never gets open. I like to have a good laugh once in a while. Thanks for that Jason.

  8. Jason Says:

    I was making a joke referencing Medicated Pete. An actually funny troll we had here last year. His whole shtick was that TB12 hates throwing to ME13 because he never gets separation.
    Sorry for the confusion. Lol.

  9. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Evans is such a beast he doesn’t need separation…….he is a catching machine.

  10. Tim R. Says:

    Jason you are not watching the same games as the rest of us. Evans gets more coverage than all the other receivers. His numbers speak for itself. You owe him an apology.

  12. Red-sparrow Says:

    Miss medicated Pete too. Don’t know why the Joes kicked him off the site. Every group needs a jokester/comedian class clown type to make everyone laugh. And Pete certainly did that…

  13. theghost Says:

    lets up the average pts/game to 40 this season

  14. BillyBucco Says:

    Dang he apologized

  15. mark2001 Says:

    Never… Trump and Desantis compared to Evans and Godwin? Not hardly. Evans and Godwin are what they are through hard work and honest to goodness talent. They don’t baffle the masses on the other team, and their own, with BS.

  16. GOB Says:

    Sparrow, I miss me some medicated Pete. Did he insult someone’s wife or something? Whatever happened to Ben green too? These sites are only as good as their posters.

  17. GOB Says:

    I think sometimes, people confuse the truth with trolling. GOB has always been clear. I’m only on here because of #12.

  18. Goatfarmer Says:

    GOB – it’s a bit obsessive when a guy who thinks the Bucs suck is heavy breathing on every thread because of one guy. Maybe you can use your tight Brady connection that enables all this certain insight into a night out with Tom and Geezy.

  19. FrontFour Says:

    Love that Gage is on our side now. Always killed us in Atl.

    Only one GOB. Chris Thomas. Gatekeeper Of Booze.
