Bucs-Jets: Quotes

“It's the first of 16 one-game seasons and you have to go into it looking at it like that. So, we're getting ready to go back, work on the corrections and go to work on the next one.” - Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Josh Freeman


“Today at the beginning of the game we were trying a little too hard, is the best way to put it, defensively. A couple of holds, too many third-down defensive penalties that we would have been off the field. One of them ended up in a touchdown and one ended up in a field goal. That's 10 points right there, and maybe they score in another way but it wouldn't have been on those drives.” - Bucs coach Greg Schiano


“It's frustrating to everyone, because we have good players. We will find a rhythm with this offense. We haven't found it yet, but we will.” - Bucs coach Greg Schiano


“He stayed poised. I was sure when I was hitting him early on that he would get rattled, but the guy just kept sitting in there. I was like, 'How many more times do I have to hit you?' He took a lot of hits today, but he stayed poised and bounced back up when he had to and made plays. He's got a bright future.” - Bucs DT Gerald McCoy, on Jets rookie QB Geno Smith


“I love playing with a team like this because you don't have to go out there and try to be Superman. You just go out there and just play football, execute and be smart with the ball.” - Jets QB Geno Smith


“Man, oh man. We talk about a resilient group, and we certainly have it. We fought all the way to the end. One team, one fight, well, there it is. Holy cow. Man, I mean, we'll take it. There's no question.” - Jets coach Rex Ryan


“You just kick it like an extra point. Make it look like every other kick.” - Jets K Nick Folk, on his thoughts before kicking the 48-yard winning field goal


“If there's time on the clock, I expect us to go out there and execute. And that's what we did today.” - Jets QB Geno Smith
