We needed it." Lions C Dominic Raiola, on hurting the Bucs' playoff chances: "Are they still in the playoff race? Are they getting ready to go make vacation plans now? I hope so." Lions LG Rob Sims, on QB Drew Stanton: "He can flat-out play. Just because he's our third-string guy, he has the confidence of every single one of our guys. He came out there and proved it." Lions QB Drew Stanton: "I talked about it a little bit last night in front of the team. I said it was going to take all of us doing everything we can, and it sure took that today, and it feels really good right now." Bucs LB Barrett Ruud, on the team's struggles vs. the run: "When somebody gets out of their gap, there's going to be a big gash, and that's exactly what happened. And they did nothing tricky on those runs, either." Bucs DT Roy Miller, on the defense needing to execute: "We just keep hearing a lot of 'My bad,' and it just doesn't equal up. We need to take more accountability, and we need to get it done." Bucs DE Stylez White, on the Lions' last drive: "Everything went wrong, you know. Everything. Catching the ball well, running the ball well, we just couldn't stop them." Bucs CB Ronde Barber: "Like I told you before, our two-minute defense needs to be better. It's the second or third time it has let us down when we had an opportunity to win." Bucs CB E.J. Biggers, on the team dealing with injuries: "That's the nature of the beast. Coach (Raheem Morris) preaches it: when somebody goes down, the next guy steps up. Everybody gets coached the same way, everybody knows what they have to do when they get in there." Pat Yasinskas, ESPN.com's NFC South blogger: Raheem Morris has gotten everything he possibly can from this young team. Heck, the Bucs already might have more wins than they realistically should have. Although the future looks incredibly bright for the Bucs, it's fair to say that any defense that allows Drew Stanton to throw for 252 yards and Maurice Morris to run for 115 has hit a wall and needs an offseason to fix what's broken. Ray Glier, Fanhouse.com: The edge in this game for the Lions was its defensive front against the Tampa Bay rebuilt offensive line. Few teams this season have handled Tampa Bay quarterback Josh Freeman in the pocket the way the Lions did in this game. Freeman squeezed out of some pressure, but he was also sacked three times. Bob Wojnowski, Detroit News: At times, it was hard to differentiate between the Bucs and the Lions, despite their records. And in the end, it was the Lions who made the clutch plays, who rallied when it appeared lost, and who pounded away with their offensive and defensive lines.
