Mike Evans Takes Subtle Shot at Jameis Winston in Post-Game Comments
By Max Staley
Sitting at 6-2, this year's Tampa Bay Buccaneers team feels different. There are a lot of reasons for that hot start, between an absurdly-talented offense, an elite defense, and a solid coaching staff. But the most obvious change has been the addition of Tom Brady.
Even though he's on pace for one of the worst years of his career statistically, it seems like star wide receiver Mike Evans is pretty happy with his new quarterback. In fact, he even took a subtle dig at some of the Bucs' previous signal-callers.

To be fair, it's not like Evans dropped Jameis Winston or any previous Bucs quarterbacks' name. But it's not hard to figure out what he means. The difference between the winningest quarterback in NFL history and the career 28-42 Winston is not exactly hard to notice.
At 6-2, this Buccaneers team looks like a lock to at least make the playoffs, which would be the team's first postseason berth since 2007. Tampa Bay also boasts the third-best odds to win the Super Bowl this year at +700.
Prior to this season, Evans' Bucs had finished above .500 just once since he entered the league in 2014. No wonder he seems so happy with his new QB.
