Bucs' Mike Evans: 'My bad days are … 150 yard'

Receiver Mike Evans, coming off a game in which he dropped six passes, says he feels he has played well this season.


Receiver Mike Evans, coming off a game in which he dropped six passes, says he feels he has played well this season.

TAMPA — Mike Evans was accountable for his performance after Sunday's loss to the Giants, saying his six dropped passes were "unacceptable," but the Bucs' second-year receiver said Wednesday that he feels he has played well this season.

"I'm going to work hard no matter what. If I don't get the outcome I want, I'm just going to keep working," he said. "I've done some good things. My bad days are, you know, 150 (yards), so that's all right. If I can improve on that, then it'll be great."

Evans had eight catches for 152 yards Sunday but had 19 passes targeted for him, and his six drops were the most by an NFL player in any game in 10 years, according to ESPN research.

"It's very hard having a historically bad day when it should have been a historically great day," said Evans, who had cited rainy weather and humidity among the factors in his drops after the game. "I can't just keep whining about it. I've got to just go play."
