Mike Evans: “Major disappointment” if Bucs don’t make it this year

Wide receiver Mike Evans has spent the last five years with the Buccaneers and he hasn’t done much winning.

The team has lost at least 10 games in four of his five seasons and even their lone winning season — 9-7 in 2016 — didn’t amount to anything because the Buccaneers failed to qualify for the playoffs. All of the losing hasn’t doused Evans’s expectations for the coming season, however.

“It will be a major disappointment if we don’t make it this year, like it has been every year, but especially this year,” Evans said, via the Tampa Bay Times. “I feel like we’re loaded on both sides of the ball and we have a really good rapport overall. Everybody has been playing well. Everybody has been having a really good training camp. I mean, if we don’t do it this year, it’s going to be tough to do it all the other years. I know we’re in a tough division, but we’ve got the guys to do that.”

If the Bucs don’t do it this year, it will make 12 straight years without a playoff berth in Tampa and Evans will likely be welcoming a fair number of new teammates when they try to avoid No. 13 in 2020.

  1. Good luck with that.
    Bruce the Blowhard will give a boost but the boost won’t be enough.

  2. I think Williams is going to be very disappointed. The WR corps drops in talent drastically after Williams, there are no weapons in the running game and I do not think Jameis Winston will succeed without these pieces in place.

  3. Team on the rise, but you gotta play the games. It’s a major disappointment for every player when it ends for the year. Only 1 team wins their last game and when that happens… they’re gonna have a parade!

  4. No Chance on even winning more than 6 games. We all saw Hard Knocks. Lazy team with terrible practice habits.

    It’s almost like Tampa got a new coach that brings a new culture to the team.

  6. “Team on the rise, but you gotta play the games.”

    Problem is they’ve been “on the rise” for several seasons now yet they haven’t risen very far. They start every year as the trendy pick to make the playoffs and surprise people yet nobody is ever surprised and the playoffs go on without them.

  7. It doesn’t take E.S.P. to connect the dots and see that the future of this team is not a winning season..

    This league is QB lead teams – Winston (one of the least of all qbs)
    o-line – not upgraded
    d-line – injuries already
    RBs – least in the league
    WR – lost some talent
    DB – no real standout talent
    Kickers – who knows

    It was coaching – Arians is delegating; Leftwich was a mediocre qb and responsible for Josh Rosen; Bowels did nothing to help Jets defense..

    Schedule – much traveling 1st half and they lose just as easily at home…
