      As slim as our chances are at going to the Super Bowl if Tom Brady and Evans don’t get on the same page we will have zero chance. Tom has Evansphobia for some reason and can’t seem to get in sync with him. That must change next week.

      Mike is good in what he does, but he’s just not a quick precise route runner. Those are the type of receivers Brady really clicks with. It ain’t happening.

      Gronk is not a quick precise route runner and they’ve clicked.

        He’s also a TE and not a WR and runs completely different routes

      Evans is a good WR – as long as he’s not playing against NO. But he’s not a cerebral player at all.

      Evans and Brady don’t seem to click on on the deep routes, Brady often likes to take a little off and Mike keeps his routes upfield. Other than that, they seem to be just fine.

      Evans cant consistently get open like gronk ab godwin perriman even grayson can. They’re more speed receivers(sans gronk)

      Even miller. Tho brady has made it work with possession receivers(hogan, edelman)

      Down ab and godwin we need to get edelman or Fitzgerald on the phone. Perriman is our #2 atm. Ugh.

      …of the pre-season top 3 WRs I would have viewed them as
      Godwin
      Brown
      Evans

      In order of value for the team I like Evans a lot but he isn’t as well rounded as the other 2 WRs.

      Evans just isn’t the most reliable pass catcher. He’s tough as nails and can make some big plays, but for a variety of reasons his target-to-catch ratio seems a bit lower than our other options.

      • dalbuc

        Participant
        Post count: 770

        His ratio is lower because he isn’t catching high percentage things like WR screens for Example. Evans is clearly good but while he is great at the vertical game and contested catch he’s not going to win any prizes doing stuff short and intermediate.

      Evans is like a teammate of James Harden when he was with the Rockets. He is now use to Brown, Gronk, Godwin making all the plays while he is out there conserving enough energy to bust 1 or 2 plays just remind you he is still on the field .

      I actually think they pull Evans as soon as he gets the 1000 yards. I think they target him early to get it and then use the rest of the game for Brady to work with the other receivers.

      this is assuming it’s an easy game and we aren’t fighting to the death like the Jets game. Who knows what to expect from this team anymore

      Agreed. Should only take 2 or 3 catches since its bit play or nothing for evans.

      Would be nice if we had godwin or ab to run the short to intermediate routes.

      Lord knows evans can’t get open to save his life!

      I bet Evan’s has lost more yards than any receiver in the league due to inaccurate passes. I’ve never seen a receiver be wide open and missed more than Evan’s and it’s not even close. He’d probably have close to 11000 yards by now if those connections were made. Who knows why there are so many communication issues and inaccurate passes.

      Having this misconception of Mike Evans as a Buc fan is disappointing. Evans is a well above average route runner.

      Ab, godwin, edelman. They are quick precise route runners.

      Evans is taller, more of a possesion type receiver. Deep ball home run threat. Evans isnt effective in screen or quick developing passes sans 50/50 balls in the end zone. I ageee with RH.

      But he’s not a speed guy. His tall frame makes him more of a possession receiver, and gives him an advantage with undersized corners. Jameis was used to that because he was throwing to Kelvin Benjamin in college. Just throw the ball accurately but slightly high, and Evans will get it

      Exactly. Evans is great at jump balls in the end zone but has trouble running slants and screens. His route running is average. He is fast but not quick.

      Mike Evans. The lion’s share of Brady’s production has been with another franchise. Maybe you’ve heard of the New England Patriots. Evans is the most prolific offensive player in our team’s history. Not debatable.

      yeah i am not sure how anyone can say anything negative about him

      he was huge in the Eagles game.

      i realize sometimes he’s marginalized in games but he’s got heart, grit, and i think youll see him step up in the Rams game.

      Dude is on his way to a Hall of Fame career and while he may NOT be Jerry Rice; he’s still pretty darn good

      Evans currently had 75 touchdowns which ranks him 36th all time.

      Let’s say he gets 10 touchdowns next year, that would jump him all the way to 16th at 85. (AB is at 83, Jimmy Graham at 85 as only active players)

      In two years, at 20 more touchdowns, that would jump him to 12 at 95. Rob Gronkowski is active at 92 so likely he remains at 13 two years from now

      in three years, 30 more touchdowns, that would jump him in the top 10 at 105.

      Fitzgerald is a first ballot and he has 121. Evans is still only 28 years old so if he can play at this level to say 35, hes a first ballot hall of famer. Fitzgerald by comparison is 38 so he started to slow down at 35 with breaking 1000 yards in his age 34 season

      he has 9300 yards for his career. If he breaks 15,000; he’s be in the top 7 all time. You going to bet against him continuing to get 1000 yards with another year or two with Brady. then if he’s in rebuilding after that, please reference Winston throwing the ball even more on a shit team
