“Obviously, I’m disappointed. It’s the last game of the season. It’s something that we have been pretty good at this year, playing pass defense, we didn’t do very well today. My hat is off to New Orleans. They did an excellent job. They had an excellent plan. They executed it very well. Offensively, I was actually pleased with our first-half performance. I thought that Mike (Glennon) played well. The second half of the game kind of changed a little bit. They outplayed us and they outcoached us. They won the game. I’ll turn my attention to getting this team back to Tampa and doing our stuff tomorrow, our exit things, and get working.” - Bucs coach Greg Schiano, on the loss

 

“I don’t think I have to say anything. That’s not being smug. I come in and do my job the best that I can. That’s other people’s decision.” - Bucs coach Greg Schiano, on his future after a 4-12 season

 

“Any time you win only four games, there are definitely going to be some type of changes. Upstairs, downstairs — I don’t know what it’s going to be.” - Bucs RT Demar Dotson

 

“We were rolling real well in the first half and especially on the first drive of the second half. The first drive of the second half I think we ate up about eight and a half minutes on the clock. We were really going well and then all of a sudden we don’t get a touchdown and instead settle for a field goal there.” - Bucs QB Mike Glennon

 

“Having some sort of continuity is the most important thing right now. As we head into the offseason, all of us need to really think about what happened this year and come back next year and be a better team.” - Bucs WR Vincent Jackson

 

“We struggled all year and faced a lot of adversity. And we experienced that feeling week after week. So for this season, things just didn’t go our way. I’m not in a position to speak about (coach Schiano’s job status) but I think he did a real good job for us. He came in here and faced a lot of criticism and a lot of people bashed him when it wasn’t his fault. But he continued to coach with a smile on his face and he coached us — and that’s all we can ask for.” - Bucs S Dashon Goldson

 

“There’s three main things we need to do. We’re going to change up the Gatorade flavor, we feel good about that. We’re going to change our travel sweats. We’re going to change, at the hotel, the beefy mac (and cheese) recipe the night before, just kind of give it a little extra kick. We feel like those three things are going to help pull us through.” - Saints QB Drew Brees, whose team will be on the road throughout the playoffs

 

“We’re going to be told all week long that we can’t win on the road. We all acknowledge why people say that, and yet, the other games don’t matter — not anymore.” - Saints RT Zack Strief
