Tackle Kenyatta Walker on the offense:
"We had our chances. I thought we moved the ball pretty well."

Defensive tackle Warren Sapp on the offense:
"We just didn't make the plays today. The bottom line is we were in red zone three times and we come away with three field goals. You can't do that against an excellent ballclub. We just couldn't get the "O' we needed."
* * *
Quarterback Brad Johnson on the offensive struggles:
"The second half things just kind of fell apart. They made some good plays. I think we had a great plan going into it. We just had a hard time as far as making the big big play."
Johnson on the season:
"I don't think you can consider this year a total failure, but obviously winning the Super Bowl is what we wanted to do."

Center Jeff Christy on the running game:
"Yeah, of course we thought we could run the ball. For whatever reason, we didn't."
* * *
Walker on the Eagles' aggressive play:
"They just whupped us."

ABC-TV studio host Chris Berman, after cameras showed Dungy good-naturedly declining to discuss his future in his postgame press conference:
"(He's) class, no matter when you look at Tony Dungy."
* * *
ABC studio analyst Steve Young:
"It's been hard to watch them, because they've got so much talent. ... I think it's solidified now. (They're) like the Browns of the late '80s, the Oilers of the early '90s, teams that are supremely talented but can't get over the hump."
