Eagles coach Andy Reid, on the fate of Bucs coach Tony Dungy:
"I think Tony has done a great job there. For whatever people said before the game or what they are going to say after the game, he has done a heck of a job there."
Reid, on alternating running backs Duce Staley and Correll Buckhalter:
"They run well, and it is good to keep both of them fresh and to bring both of them in and have your running back at top speed. Duce does a nice job with the pass game. Buckhalter also had some nice grabs today."
Eagles offensive lineman Jermaine Mayberry, on quarterback Donovan McNabb:
"He's great. His presence is so calm. He never gets rattled. He's always in control."
Staley, on the rushing effort:
"We were able to come out and play smashmouth football. We kind of controlled the game and did what we wanted to out there."
McNabb, on his postgame conversation with Warren Sapp:
"We're competitors. Whatever's been said through the media we know has been blown up. We don't focus on that. We're pretty good friends."
Cornerback Bobby Taylor, on the Eagles defense vs. the Bucs offense:
"You tell me. They're going on vacation, and we're still playing. No touchdowns in two years. What else do we need to do?"
Linebacker Carlos Emmons, on why no Eagle celebrated:
"Anything less than a Super Bowl win is a failure."
