Bucs-Rams Quotebook

© St. Petersburg Times
published September 24, 2002

Greg Spires, Bucs defensive end, on getting going after the early Rams scoring drive:

"That first drive, we settled in. We continued to come. We were just getting into the game."

* * *

Ronde Barber, Bucs cornerback, on comparisons to the defenses of years past:

"We're trying to make it that way. We're not going to make any bold predictions, we're going to go about our business. We got the win here."

* * *

Bucs coach Jon Gruden on defense:

"There was a consistent pass rush tonight that was legitimate. It caused serious problems for them. ... Fortunately our defense really made it happen again."

* * *

Warren Sapp, Bucs defensive tackle, on the home crowd:

"Ah, it was electric baby. Electric from the get-go. Even after we got them all up on their feet and they drive 90 yards on us, they still stood up for us whenever we asked them to. They gave us what we needed."

* * *

John Lynch, Bucs safety, on the Rams losing Marshall Faulk to a neck sprain:

"Any time you lose the best player in the league (it hurts). For them it hurts their attack. I'll tell you what, it's still a challenge with their receivers. Kurt (Warner) can still put it on a dime."

* * *

Mike Martz, Rams coach, on his quarterback:

"Kurt (Warner) was fine. We had some guys around him that didn't perform very well. We've got make sure those guys are where they're supposed to be."

* * *

Martz, on running back Trung Canidate:

"I was very disappointed in (his) performance, very disappointed. So we put Lamar Gordon in there, and it looks to me like we found us a starter. I was very pleased with his efforts."

* * *

Warner, taking the blame for four interceptions:

"Hey, I'm throwing the ball. I've got to throw it to them, that's my job. When that doesn't happen, it's on me."
