We couldn't have a round of postgame quotables without hearing from Terrell Owens, now could we? Here's what the wide receiver had to say after the win on Sunday against the Bucs:
... I think from a coach's point-of-view and his assessment of this team as a whole, we know why we were losing. I think some of it's energy. I think some of it's communication on the offensive side of the ball, the defensive side of the ball and even special teams. We've been a play here and there away from really breaking open and putting ourselves into some games. I think we've got to eliminate a lot of those mistakes.
... Our defense showed up today. A situation like this is just where ... you'd expect the Tampa Bay Buccaneers defense to step up. It really shower that everybody was in-sync with each other. It's a part of how we've been practicing all week. We gave ourselves a chance. As an offense, we definitely appreciate the way they played together.
... We go into the game every week thinking we should win the game. Obviously, Brad (Johnson) played a lot better than he did last week. As an offense, we're not as efficient as we need to be. THere are things that will get better as we practice. We're looking forward to next week.
... As receivers, we're competitive. We feel like we have some playmakers. But we have to do whatever is necessary to win the game. For whatever reason, we got the dinks-and-dunks. We had some opportunities there ... but there's always room for improvement.
... I'm always looking forward to trying to make something happen once I get the ball. You just have to make the best of your opportunities. I think we did a great job of that today.
... We're just trying to execute, number one. We had some penalties that set us back a little bit. Those are things that won't allow us to be efficient as we need to be if we keep making silly mistakes.
... The most important out of everything today was that we got the win.
... You guys (in the media) want to create the negativity. I think a lot of guys are aware of it. I think a lot of the coaches are aware of it. You guys (in the media) put our head coach on the hot seat. We've just got to concentrate and worry about how we feel about each other in the locker room. That's all that really matters ... what was said in the locker room. Don't worry about what the media says.
... We're a young squad on defense. They are getting better and better each week. That bodes well for us going into the latter part of the season.
... I'm very confident going into next week. I understand we have to do some things to keep the chains moving. Brad is going to do the best job he can back there. We've just got to go make plays for him.
... Brad has been through the fire. He's been a starting quarterback. He's been a backup quarterback. He's been in every position that you really could imagine. You have to take your hat off to a guy like that. When he's back there, he tries to asses what the defense is playing in front of him and he tries to take advantage of what they are giving him. Brad is a professional. He's going to do the best that he can do.
