Mike Evans Now Tied For 66th On The All-Time Touchdown List

October 2nd, 2022

Mike Evans broke a franchise record tonight, but he also leapfrogged some legends in the NFL record books.

Evans’ two touchdown catches against the Chiefs give him 79 for his career. That’s tied for 66th on the all-time list. Damn impressive for a guy who doesn’t turn 30 until next August.

Evans passed Eddie George, Fred Biletnikoff and Steven Jackson (among other) with those two TDs. With another seven TDs this season, Evans will move into the top-50 in NFL history.

Joe would have loved to see Evans get even more targets tonight, but he was stellar in his return following a one-game suspension. Evans led the Bucs with eight catches for 103 yards on 10 targets.

Joe sure hopes Byron Leftwich and Tom Brady look at their weapons and realize a throw-throw-throw philosophy suits this Bucs team.

As for the franchise record Evans cracked, he now has more yards from scrimmage than any player in Bucs history, passing James Wilder (1981-1989) early in tonight’s game.

    Evans had a great game. It was good seeing Godwin out there, though it’s obvious he’s not anywhere near 100%. Cannot say much about the other WRs. I hope it’s due to injury, but time will tell.

  2. BUC CHEEKS Says:

    Mike…. You’re AWESOME!!! This team, not so much! Bring back BA

  3. Rod Munch Says:

    So we get 31 points by throwing the ball.

    Yet these idiots, in the post game, will absolutely say we have to run the ball more. Just wait. These 3rd rate coaches are idiots are completely predictable.

  4. ClwJB Says:

    Jones was absent although suited up

    The 2 turnovers did us in – but the D looked soft way too often

  5. LVMYBUCS Says:

    How long before Brady puts his foot.down on this clown show coaching staff.

  6. Kody Says:

    PERRIMAN, GAGE and WHITE probably cost us the last 2 games with their ultra critical fumbles…

    BUT you never let us down MIKE. You’re always the one bright shining star that we can always count on. CONGRATS, man!

  7. Bucsfan13 Says:

    Julio has been worthless

  8. Coburn Says:

    Yeah nice seeing Brady just sling it. Too bad we had to get so down first. I’m convinced we can replace the run game with screens, swing passes to white out of the backfield, short passes

  9. Orlando Kevin Says:

    I’m not a fan of this shell defense especially against a QB like Mahomes. And our coverage on Kelce needs some improvement.

  10. Orlando Kevin Says:

    I liked the adjustment of using Devin White as a spy on Mahomes but overall we didn’t look prepared on defense. Granted Hurricane Ian probably impacted our preparation.

  11. yar Says:

    It’s not BL or Brady it’s Bowles that’s messing with the offense. Stick with the defense Todd leave the offense to the people who know how to score points.

  12. Rod Munch Says:

    “You know we got to run the ball better, and execute better, and just need to make plays.”

    There, I just wrote a transcript of the coaches post game interview for you, no reason to even attend now.

  13. Goatfarmer Says:

    I think Brady might just scheme Mike himself. Mike is better than ever. Spectacular TD catches tonight.

    Julio – either play football or retire. You look like you are afraid. Just retire.

  14. Yucs2Bucs Says:

    Records or results ? Time for this group to become a
    team and hold each other accountable and if not it’s another waisted year with Brady at the helm

  15. ClwJB Says:

    From a fan since day one in 76 – Evans is the best Buc of all time

    Kudos to Brooks and Selmon, but Mike is just special and not close to being done yet

  16. Anonymous Says:

    Kinda makes you wonder if the green bay would have ended differently if Evans had played. It took Brady and Evans a year to click but they look unstoppable.

  17. Bucs Orlando Says:

    Would it be wierd to put Mike in the ring of honor while he’s still on the team?


    I mean, why wait? Reqward the greatest buc ever.

  18. SidBucs Says:

    Where you see 66th I’m showing 33rd right now

  19. adam from ny Says:

    ME13 had himself a game…!

    at one point i thought the chiefs were trying to hurt him…hurt his back

  20. Buczilla Says:

    Mike was one of our few bright spots tonight and he’s easily our best drafted offensive player ever.

  21. PSL Bob Says:

    Evans is the brightest light on this team. He’s our security blanket and will hopefully be a Buc for life.

  22. Ed Says:

    The Chiefs definitely put some hits on our WR after catch. Evans just bounced off of them!

  23. snookman Says:

    Greatest Buccaneer of all time (1 Evans, 2 Brooks, 3 Selmon 4 Sapp 5 L David)

    A top 10 WR all Time in NFL

    Hes been an absolute joy to watch an Im so glad he has a Superbowl Ring to add to his legacy. If He were in a larger sports market he would have been plastered all over the place. Imagine if he were in Dallas??

    For him to have playe 9 years at an elite level………….That is just rare. And nobody can take what he has done away from him……….He was elite with Mike Glennon, Winston, and Brady.

    Thanks Mike for what you have done for this team!
