    “My bad days are 150 yards so that’s alright” No! It’s not alright! 150 yards is good on paper but it took a record number of targets to hit that number. With 19 targets, he should be breaking into the 200+ yards category. Hopefully he gets it together and we see VJax and ASJ back on the field soon. Go Bucs!

    Clayton never lacked confidence, either. We have enough hi draft picks disappointing on the field that it almost has to be the coaching, or the water. Water here tastes fine to me…

    All of our first round receivers have a second year slump, it’s part of the the curse. Hopefully Clayton, I mean Evans will come out on top, but he’s fighting demons. What I’ve noticed about Mike this year is he’s letting to many balls get to his body. He stopped snatching the ball out of the air with his hands at it’s high point. Now you see him wait on a ball that goes to his body. That’s a lack of concentration, and confidence. Or as legend says, his hands are turning to stone, part of the curse.

      Thank you Surfer, I’ve been saying that since week 2. He has let entirely too many balls get inside to his numbers. Other times I see him trying to run before he gets it. This kids got more talent in one leg than Michael Clayton. Clayton never put up the numbers Evans is after his first season. Evans just needs to concentrate more and catch that ball out in front of him.

    It’s the curse of the Scubog player jersey. I also have McCoy and David. Coincidence?

    Good article EH, I wasn’t aware Evans had such a low efficiency catching the ball. Up until now my biggest concern with him and ASJ is that neither seemed to be able to stay on the field long since we drafted them. They’re both at the halfway mark of their 3 year evaluation so there’s still time to improve, but they better both stay healthy and productive next season.

    I didn’t like Evans “that’s alright” comment either. Alright if you want to be good and not great. Alright if you only care about having a good amount of yards and not wins. Big time players play big in big games. That game was likely our chance to turn season around and was well within our grasp. Having highest amount of drops in that game is not alright. Breaking an all time record for drops by a receiver in a game. All I can say is wow! Hope he can fix his concentration, confidence, or whatever it is. Saying you are confident doesn’t mean you are.

    I’ve also noticed this year that EVERY TIME he misses a catch, he immediately looks to the ref for a flag. It’s pretty annoying, to me that shows he’s not doing any self-reflection and would rather blame others. That’s not the way to improve
