Bucs-Rams: Quotes


“This was a tough afternoon. Offensively, we struggled to run the football, which in turn I think it made it harder to throw the football. We had seven sacks and Mike (Glennon) was under a lot of pressure throughout the day. That was tough for our offense to be effective that way.” Tampa Bay Buccaneers coach Greg Schiano

“Not really. It goes back to us. It’s not them, it’s us. They did a great job playing their defense, but at the same time, if we do what we are supposed to do then we will be able to do the things that we want to do.” Bucs RB Bobby Rainey, on whether the Rams’ defense changed after Tampa Bay’s early touchdown drive

“We wanted to force more turnovers. We wanted to do a better job against the run game. Early on in the game (Rams RB Zac Stacy) was getting some nice yardage and obviously we didn’t want that to happen.” Bucs LB Lavonte David

“They didn’t surprise us with anything, they just beat us. We just got beat, that’s it. We just got beat. There wasn’t any surprises or anything they did.” Bucs DT Gerald McCoy

“Tampa Bay’s a good football team. They’ve been hanging with people, beating people after a rough start. I know their coach prides them on being physical around the football. Shoot, we did a pretty good job against the run and a reverse and some trick stuff. I think our team has a lot of resolve.” Rams DE Chris Long, on the victory

“To me, the games go by so fast. They just told me I had, I think, like 34 carries – I didn’t even know that. It didn’t feel like it. They add up so quick. But it was a good win for us. Obviously, we always want to establish the run game. We did a good job of that today.” Rams RB Zac Stacy, who ran for 33 times for 104 yards

“Definitely a great honor. I’ve been blessed all year, nice way to end the game. I had a great D-line that’s been playing with me all year, great defense. A lot of credit goes to them and the man upstairs has been great to me. We’ve got one more game. Let’s finish this strong and take it from there.”

Rams DE Robert Quinn, who was carried off the field by teammates after breaking the St. Louis single-season sack record with 18, including three against the Bucs
