Catch a Rising Star: Mike Evans

in Tampa Bay Bucs

Coming for Christmas: Mike Evans jerseys.

And Mike Evans bobbleheads.

And Mike Evans action figures.

Soon, there will be the Mike Evans chess set, the Mike Evans footballs and the Mike Evans toothbrushes. A Greatest Hits CD is coming soon. For the right fee, I am certain that Evans will juggle at birthday parties.

Yeah, it’s an Evans world all of the sudden. Just like that, Evans is everything you
want to believe about the Tampa Bay Bucs. He is young and promising and talented and on the
verge of stardom. He is a force, an offensive force, for crying out loud, that the rest of the
league is trying to figure out. Forgive them, but they're having a dilly of a time.

Wish you had slid Keenan McCardell in there. All though he was only here two short years, he was a much better receiver and player than the primma donna Keyshawn Johnson ever was.

Really excited about this kid’s potential and the manner that he goes about his business. By all accounts that I’ve heard/read, he is a student of the game and he’s absorbing the coaching he’s receiving well despite his recent success. Hopefully he keeps his sights set on continuous improvement and doesn’t get wrapped up in his own hype. Last thing we need is to have this kid with so much potential get a big head and then become a locker room issue

WOW! Great article. I love your new website, and I look forward to more great articles you are known for. Great job!

Just want to say I’m happy to be able to still read your thoughts on Tampa Bay sports! I’ve always looked forward to your take on Bucs wins and losses! Good luck on your new endeavor! And yes I wholly agree that Mike Evans is the truth!
