With ‘Catch for Kids’ Campaign, Mike Evans continues to give back to community

Photo by Julio Aguilar/ The Buccaneers’ star receiver is proving once again to be a difference-maker off the field both in the Tampa Bay area and back home in Galveston, Texas. In each of his first seven NFL seasons, Mike Evans has been one of the Buccaneers’ most impactful players. With 8,762 yards and 68 touchdowns in 113 career games, he already owns most of the franchise’s receiving records. But what fans might not realize is that, these days, every yard he gains and every touchdown he scores is perhaps making an even bigger difference off the field. “Being...

Yarcho’s Pick Six: A complete effort, dismantling of Chicago by the Bucs

Photo by Douglas P. DeFelice/ In a complete reversal of the 2020 matchup between Tampa Bay and Chicago, the Buccaneers came away with the 38-3 victory So, that was fun, right?

Buccaneers Week 7 Top Performers: Revenge is sweet and not fattening

Photo by Mike Ehrmann/ Tampa Bay decimated the Bears in a tune-up for next week’s big divisional game against New Orleans. It’s likely safe to say last year’s 20-19 loss to the Chicago Bears left everyone invested in Tampa Bay football feeling disgusted. The Bears, in the midst of what was probably the least convincing 5-1 start in NFL history, snuck away with an ugly win that saw the Buccaneers commit several penalties, leave several points on the field, and get meme’d into oblivion after the infamous Tom Brady fourth down incident. Going into this Week 7...

The story of Tampa Bay’s season, to this point, has been about fighting through key injury after key injury and somehow still managing to win. Coming into a matchup against the Bears,...

Bucs X-Factor: Chris Godwin seeks another standout performance

Photo by Julio Aguilar/ The Bucs wideout has been steady but hasn’t taken over a game since Week 1. Could that change against Chicago? While he’s not dominating the highlight reel or commanding extra attention on a weekly basis, Chris Godwin has served as the one constant in a loaded but oscillating receiver corps for the Buccaneers. He recorded at least 50 yards receiving in each of the first five games before coming just shy with 43 against the Philadelphia Eagles last week. He also currently leads the team in receptions with 34, a top 10 mark in the league....
