Quarterback Quincy Carter on his first regular-season game: "It was tough. (Warren) Sapp was coming hard at me all game. It's part of the learning curve. You can't get experience like that in practice."

Coach Dave Campo on the game: "We lost the turnover battle. When that happens, you usually don't win ballgames."

Safety George Teague on people underestimating the Cowboys: "Everybody out there has to be shocked to see how we played today. We played better than everyone expected. ... Everybody thought we'd give up over 200 yards on the ground again and we didn't. I think everyone who watched the game will begin to gain some respect for our defense."

Receiver and returner Reggie Swinton on the fallout from his 77-yard kickoff return: "I doubt Detroit (the next opponent) will be kicking to me very much."

Guard Kelvin Garmon on what cost the Cowboys the game: "It's disappointing to lose when we executed so well. We had as much to do with the score as their offense did."

Running back Emmitt Smith on his team's struggles: "We had a lot of turnovers and mistakes that probably cost us the game. I didn't think we ran the ball very well."

Campo on the Bucs defense: "They didn't blitz as much as I thought they would. They started blitzing more at the end when they thought the game might be in danger."
