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."

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."
