Bucs-Falcons: Quotes

“Penalties were a big issue again. Certainly I’m very frustrated about that. It’s been a long time since a team I’ve coached has had this kind of an issue, and so you can put it on me. We have to find a way to get that fixed because we had 11 penalties, six of them in Atlanta territory and four in the red zone. I think we do all the right things and it’s worked over the years but it’s not working right now, so we have to re-examine everything we’re doing as far as that goes.” - Bucs coach Greg Schiano


“For the second week in a row we made some coverage mistakes. That hurt. I think they ran 40-something plays and then they have a one-play scoring drive after the sudden change.” - Greg Schiano


“That’s way too many points. Our standard is 18 points. That is what we want to hold people to, so 31 is way too many points.” - Bucs DT Gerald McCoy


“We’re not playing consistent ball and you see it out there when we play. Mistakes and penalties. Penalties are killing us. We have to stop the penalties and play smarter in those areas.” - Bucs CB Darrelle Revis


“I think (QB) Mike Glennon played great. I think that we made some great plays on offense. Penalties kind of held us back today, and execution on some points also, but I thought we played at a high enough level to win. At the end of the day it comes down to players making the right plays to win.” - Bucs RG Davin Joseph


“We knew we were facing a tough (defense). Our goal was to try and run the ball and be efficient in the red zone and I think we did a pretty good job of that. One time we had to kick a field goal. That’s pretty good.” - Falcons RB Jacquizz Rodgers


“I think our entire team drew energy from that. That was kind of the momentum starter for us in the first half. Anytime you get points on defense, that’s huge.” - Falcons QB Matt Ryan, on Thomas DeCoud’s 30-yard fumble return for touchdown


“His routes were clean. He did a great job with his patience on the routes, allowing the appropriate time to set up for me to get into the spot that I needed to get to. I think our timing was good.” - Falcons QB Matt Ryan, on WR Harry Douglas


“I hope you’re not surprised by what Harry did today. He is definitely a capable person. Without Julio (Jones) and Roddy (White), your chances of making those plays go down, but Harry played great for us today. He’s just another weapon.” - Falcons TE Tony Gonzalez, on WR Harry Douglas
