What they're saying about the Tampa Bay Bucs-Jacksonville Jaguars game

Raheem Morris, Bucs coach, on if this was his low point:

"I don't deal on negative thoughts. Last week it was frustration because of foolish penalties. This week it was fundamentals. It's an opportunity for me to get these guys going as far as fundamentals. … I don't deal with low points. I don't ride the emotional roller coaster."

Morris, on if he is worried about his job:

"If I was worried about my job security, I wouldn't be coaching. I would be holding a microphone in front of another coach right now. I'm going to keep coaching and do what I have to do."

Josh Freeman, Bucs QB, on turnovers:

"I don't know what the number was, seven today? It was disgusting, and it really has no place in our game if we want to win."

Roy Miller, Bucs DT, on losing their seventh game in a row:

"It is a horrible feeling; I have never felt this bad after a game."

Pat Yasinskas, ESPN.com NFC South blogger:

Last week, we found out the Buccaneers are the worst team in the NFC South when they lost to the Carolina Panthers. This week, we found out the Bucs are the third-worst team in Florida. Wait, I'm going to put them fifth, behind Tampa Plant High and Seffner's Armwood High. Seriously, this might represent rock bottom. … More than ever, coach Raheem Morris is on the hot seat. It's kind of amazing how quickly his stock has fallen and how badly this season has spun out of control.

Chris Burke, SI.com:

Last year, the Bucs thrived on their "youngry" attitude. This year, it's leading to increasingly undisciplined play. Turnovers and penalties have plagued the team all season, and this week was no exception.

Mike Florio, ProFootballTalk.com:

All three Florida teams currently are 4-9. At least it's sunny there.
