What they're saying about Bucs-Seahawks game

Greg Schiano, Bucs coach:

"We'll watch the video and as always, peel it apart. … This is a tough one. We win the turnover battle, we rush the football, you handle the noise. We had one illegal-procedure penalty and it has nothing to do with the noise. The job that Mike Glennon did handling the noise was veteran-like. A good football team came back and beat us. We had opportunities to contain the quarterback and we didn't."

Mike Glennon, Bucs QB:

"I think we took an aggressive approach because kind of, why not? It worked for a while. We just weren't able to close it out at the end."

Da'Quan Bowers, Bucs defensive end, on QB Russell Wilson and the Seattle offense:

"They made adjustments. They made key adjustments to help their team win. We couldn't keep him contained, he got out of the pocket sometimes. A couple of penalties helped them in the first half."

Pete Carroll, Seahawks coach:

"We saw (the Bucs) all week long, thought they were a really good-looking group. I know their record doesn't show that, but when you watch the film and how hard they play and how tough they are and the schemes that they throw at you, I really wasn't surprised that they would play well. I was disappointed that we weren't able to do better than we did."

Russell Wilson, Seahawks QB, on rallying from 21-0:

"That was a huge win. You think about the deficit we were under and to be able to comeback in that fashion … that's big-time."

Wilson, on the late drive that tied the game:

"That's kind of what I told them on that last drive, that great teams do something special. 'Find a way to do something special.' That's what I told them in the huddle. We just have to keep doing that."

Michael Robinson, Seahawks fullback, on Marshawn Lynch, who rushed for 125 yards:

"He wanted every single yard. He was in beast mode today. He was upset, and he was running mad."

Earl Thomas, Seahawks safety, on being pushed by a huge underdog:

"I'm kind of (upset). But I'm ready to get back on the field. I'm ready to get back to work. Ready to correct those mistakes."

Doug Farrar,

As for the Bucs and embattled head coach Greg Schiano? Painting this as a moral victory with everything that's happened to this franchise in the recent past will be a tough sell.

Pat Yasinskas,

Could things really get worse if the Bucs fired Schiano and elevated special teams coach Dave Wannstedt to interim coach? Probably not. But things probably couldn't get much worse.

The Bucs hit their lowest point in Seattle. They squandered a chance for Schiano to say, "Hey, look at what my system can do if it's run right."

But that didn't happen and the Glazers might be at a point where they need to make a big choice. Remember what I said about them not liking being embarrassed. I can't emphasize that enough.

The next game on the schedule is a Monday night contest (Nov. 11) against the Miami Dolphins. It will be on national television in a sold-out stadium that rarely sells out.

The Glazers have to decide what's worse — going the interim route or run the risk of letting a national audience see Schiano get booed out of Raymond James Stadium.
