Bucs-Patriots Post-Game Quotes | Tampa Bay Buccaneers - Pewter Report
The 'we slipped to 7, they slipped to 35' quote was pure class. No excuses. Gotta respect that guy.
Kudos to their QB, Peyty take notes.
Young players. Good attitude. I wish them the NFC best.
I don't know that I agree with that reasoning (field position) of not going for it on 4th down. I can see not going for it when it was 4th and one at the 50 since that was only the 2nd quarter, but late in the 3rd quarter, back to back possessions, not going for it from either the Pats 37 or the Pats 35 - when they were down by 21 - that baffled me.
So they're hoping for a pick 6, I can understand that, but you think you have a better chance of a turnover happening than scoring from inside the 40 - or converting a play for four yards? As it was they ended up with only two more possessions for the rest of the game. And then they finally do go for it on 4th down, that was pointless since they were down by 28 with only a minute left in the game.
Agreed. I recall that they pinned the Pats back at least a couple of times on the punt (I think this may have been one of the times, but I'm not sure). Even so, the chances were high that the Pats would get to at least the 35ish on a return followed by one series anyway, so why not go for it? Easy for me to say, I guess. :confused2:
I have a lot more respect for the Bucs than I do the Jets
