It took a while but it seems that the Buffalo Bills receiver Lee Evans finally left the state of sleepiness, that at the beginning of the 2007 season was.
After 82 catches, 1.292 yards, eight touchdowns in the 2006 campaign, the idea of 6 Super Bowl Champions jersey black jersey
entering this year is that Evans either met or exceeded its fabulous great season. Unfortunately, things rarely go according to plan in the NFL.
For the fourth year in connection froze the first three games of the season, reaching only five passes for 29 yards a shame. Since then, however, the 26-year-old gradually to increase their game, what a great sign of the accounts is difficult recovery, winner of three of the last four.
Losman in place of the injured Edwards went on a first test, 15-yard line place game of the bills at the end of the fourth quarter. His body which was between two defenders could have intercepted. Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis had the ball dramatically in his area for a short time, but until the 5-foot-10 began, 197-pound Evans the rookie defender and ran into the end zone, putting the bills to 13 3. The catch was the play of light and coils, which officially kayoed Gang Green and earned his third victory of the Buffalo year.
This kind of big-play ability is what Evans became known last season. Of course, the signature game of his young career was '06, when he with 11 receptions for 265 yards ended (both career highs) and two touchdowns of 83 meters in a 24-21 victory over Houston. He also gave two performances of 100 yards and four games of 80 or 90 In a relatively small offense, he was the only bright spot in line throughout the season.
What will this year, the Buffalo offense currently has 31 ranking in the league, and their quarterbacks were only 200 yards once (Edwards in Week 4). Losman, who because of 36 Bettis White Jersey
a knee injury suffered in Week 3 and has lost his job, the way Edwards still injured Sunday against Cincinnati, the defense spending only 28 in the league.
In this sense, it is not surprising that Evans, thanks mainly to their own abilities, a great rich and poor secondary enemies Losman, offers another sample of 100 meters.
When the 3-4 Bills, continue for a chance at a career in the second half and maybe make the playoffs have, Evans will be part of a roll.
The good news for Buffalo is finally starting to warm up. For the opposition hardly do worse.
