Tampa Bay Buccaneers-Seattle Seahawks game: What they're saying

Bucs coach Raheem Morris:

"It's gratifying to win meaningful games in December, gratifying to win games after Christmas. The guys had a great week of preparation, and we can only control what we can control, so on to New Orleans to play our 16th game."

Morris, on TE Kellen Winslow:

"To see him come out and do the things he was able to do today didn't shock me one bit. Now it's up to me to find ways to make him do it more often and to help him do it more often, as often as we can do it for as long as we can do it."

Bucs OT Donald Penn, on QB Josh Freeman:

"I told him on that last series on the sideline, 'You have set a standard.' I said, 'I don't want anything less from now on.' I said, 'You have messed up. You show me you're the best, now every game I want that. Every day in practice I want that.' "

WR Mike Williams, on Freeman's five TD passes:

"We always feel when we get down, there's no one better quarterback to have the ball than No. 5. Once he's got the ball, we feel like we can come back and win anything."

Seahawks WR Mike Williams, on whether his team deserves to be in the playoffs with a losing record:

"People want to talk and say this and that, but rules are rules. You don't just change the rules all of a sudden because the situation is not what you expect."

Jim Moore, Seattle Post-Intelligencer:

Imagine how Freeman will feel in two weeks if he's watching the Seahawks in the playoffs after throwing five touchdown passes against them on the day after Christmas. Talk about quarterback envy after seeing Freeman — (Charlie) Whitehurst will never be what this guy is already.

Pat Yasinskas,'s NFC South blogger:

I was driving to Tampa International Airport about the time Freeman was throwing two second-quarter touchdowns and the road runs pretty close to Raymond James Stadium. The wind was making my car sway and forcing me to keep both hands on the wheel. If you can throw a football with precision through that kind of wind, you have a big-time arm.
