Every quarterback/wide receiver duo in the NFL strive to be the best, but that’s exactly what Buccaneers’ captain Jameis Winston believes he and Evans are.

One of the best things about Jameis Winston is his confidence as well as his desire to get better. It’s why Buccaneers fans – and teammates – are drawn to him. After the first day of training camp, Winston spoke with the media – as he always does. During his media session, he was asked about whether or not he and Mike Evans are the best combination in the league;

"“I felt that we already were, you know. But, we have to continue to get better. If we haven’t achieved something, obviously we want to achieve more together and that will open up other opportunities for other guys. One thing about Mike is he is a very selfless individual. So, if he gets five touches and gets his touchdowns, he’s ok if Adam Humphries has eight touches for 115 yards and we won the game because that’s what it’s all about. Teamwork makes the dream work.”"

There’s plenty of reason to step back and say there’s no way Winston and Evans are the best combo out there right now. There’s Matt Ryan and Julio Jones, Eli Manning and Odell Beckham Jr., Ben Roethlisberger and Antonio Brown, Aaron Rodgers and Jordy Nelson. All of these quarterbacks have Super Bowl experience – three of which have won the big game.

Can Jameis truly believe he and Evans are better than those dynamic duos?

Yes, he can. In fact, he should.

If you don’t believe you’re the best then you shouldn’t be playing the game. And just because you believe you’re the best doesn’t mean you aren’t striving for bigger and better. Those are things Jamies and Evans are both laser focused on accomplishing this season – and beyond.

Great things are ahead for Winston and Evans – this is only the beginning.
