Coach Tony Dungy, on the replay that overturned their recovery of an onside kick in the final minute: "They said it clearly showed (Brian Kelly) did not have possession of the ball at any time. So, that's what replay's for."

Cornerback Brian Kelly on recovering the onside kick: "I thought when I came down on the ground, I had possession of the ball. My butt was the first thing to hit the ground and not my legs."

Cornerback Ronde Barber on the defensive breakdowns: "They're still finding ways (to run the ball) against eight-man fronts. I wish I knew. It's a little frustrating. I know we're as fundamentally sound as any team in the league, (but) when they're finding gaps in there, you know something's breaking down."

Dungy on the Bucs' 28 second-half pass attempts: "It's going to be hard to win that way. We ended up getting into a throwing game in the second half, and that's not where we want to be."

Barber on being 2-3.: "I'm not scared to be here right now. You guys can be as scared as you want to be. I can be 2-3 with the Buccaneers. I've been here before. I've been on teams when we felt like we weren't playing worth a damn and the last two weeks the effort has been there."
