Bucs wide receiver Mike Evans topped 1,000 yards receiving for an NFL-record eighth straight season. The three-time Pro Bowl receiver needed 54 yards coming into Sunday’s game against the Panthers to reach 1,000 yards. Evans, the Bucs’ all-time leading receiver, hauled in three passes for 56 yards from quarterback Tom Brady to hit the milestone, but hurt his right arm on the play.

He had two catches for 51 yards in the first half before hauling in a 5-yard reception in the third quarter. Evans’ 37-yarder in the second quarter was Tampa Bay’s longest play of the first half.

After missing the Week 16 game at Carolina, Evans shook off a hamstring injury that he suffered against the Saints four weeks ago and played last Sunday against the Jets. He caught four passes for 47 yards and a touchdown last week in New York.

Evans set an NFL record with seven straight 1,000-yard receiving seasons last year, breaking a tie with Hall of Fame wide receiver Randy Moss, who began his career with six consecutive 1,000-yard seasons.

“Bucs wide receiver Mike Evans topped 1,000 yards receiving for an NFL-record eighth straight season.”
Yet another false statement as we commonly see with this fake record. Three more years and Evans will tie Jerry Rice’s record of 11 straight seasons of 1000 yards receiving. That’s not to take anything away from Evans, who is terrific. It’s just hard to believe a guy that covers the NFL can’t get it right and we see it so often see with Bucs writers when it comes to this 1000 yard season crap.

He’s referencing the old Randy Moss record 1000 yards to start your career. Those of us who have been around here for awhile understood what he meant because for the years Mike Evans chasing that record was the only thing to get excited about. Seems now with this sudden success we find things to complain about.

Before you start making corrections to a statement you think the author “can’t get it right”, you should first know the right answer. This isn’t about the most 1000 yard seasons in a career. It’s about topping that milestone in each of the first 7 and now 8. Mike Evans is the first to achieve it.
