Throughout his career with the Buccaneers, Mike Evans has recorded 10,425 yards and 81 touchdowns on 683 receptions. He played a key role in Tampa Bay winning the Super Bowl in 2020 when they ousted Kansas City Chief Patrick Mahomes.

Evans is a Super Bowl winner and also has four All-Star awards. However, some fans still think the Tampa Bay Buccaneers don’t deserve the praise he’s getting.

On Monday, Twitter user @nkealgoat sparked controversy when he wrote that he never understood the hype surrounding Evans. It’s safe to say that Tampa Bay fans were quick to come to the defense of the first receiver.

In response, someone wrote:

“I’ve seen a lot of bad performances but I have to be top 3 worst”

Another added:

“He’s got 1,000 yards every season. Dude is a Hall of Fame WR”

A third commented:

“Honestly I never felt like he was overdone. A steady, reliable WR whose numbers will probably get him into the HOF.”

@employee Honestly, I never felt like it was overrated. WR is steady and reliable and his numbers are likely to make it to the HOF.

Here are some reactions from the discussion:

@employee Ah, he’s had over a thousand yards every year of his career, for me hype is guaranteed

@employee Nah honestly he deserves it. It’s not easy being the most consistent WR in the league.

@employee I mean he’s the all-time top 50 person for receiving yards at 29, and no one before him on the list is younger than him

@employee What’s the noise? Outside of Tampa nobody talks about Mike Evans, and that’s criminal.

Tampa Bay fans clearly understand how important Evans is to their team. The 29-year-old has had nine consecutive 1,000-yard receiving seasons since he was drafted in 2014.

Mike Evans had another great season with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2022. The receiver reached 1,124 yards and six touchdowns on 77 receptions during the regular season.

Evans formed a solid partnership with quarterback Tom Paddy as the Pirates clinched the NFC South division title with an 8-9 record.

However, Evans was unable to get past Tampa Bay in the Wild Card Round as the team was eliminated from the postseason by the Dallas Cowboys. The receiver managed 74 yards on six catches in the playoff game.
