Bucs vs. 49ers Postgame Quotes


Hear what coaches and players had to say in the locker room after the 49ers’ 33-14 victory over the Bucs Sunday.

We’re just not performing at a consistent enough level now. It’s not from a lack of effort, a lack of work, a lack of any of that stuff. These guys are laying it on the line, coaches and players alike. We’re just not getting the results that we want all the time.” — Bucs head coach Greg Schiano

“Mike [Glennon] is the one who controlled the whole operation, moving it down the field against, arguably, one of the top three defenses in the league. We didn’t perform in some areas, but I thought Mike actually, without watching the tape, gave us the spark.” – Bucs head coach Greg Schiano

“We had them where we wanted them, it was 20-14, all we needed to do was get the ball back and they went on a 10-minute drive. The defense can’t allow that. That’s happened too many times this year and we have to do better.” – Bucs DT Gerald McCoy

“I cramped up, I didn’t know whether I cramped up or not, but you know my legs just didn’t feel the same, so I went to the sideline, got worked on, after that I just got better and went right back into the game.” – Bucs LB Lavonte David on leaving the field after his nullified pick-6

“The same thing they’ve showed all year on film. They did a really good blanket coverage, keeping everything in front of them, not really giving up a lot of big plays and they have good athletes that go in there and just try to come up and the tackle.” – Bucs WR Vincent Jackson

“We had really good protection on the play, but the way Vernon extended and ran that ball down, I mean it looked like Willie Mays running down a long fly ball to centerfield. He just tracked it down with his feet, and his eyes, and then extended to make the catch. That was a big-time play.” – 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh on Vernon Davis’ 52-yard touchdown reception

“Kaepernick really put on his cape. A couple of those conversions were, I don’t know how else to describe them. There’s not a lot of people that can make those kind of plays that he was making. I mean, make them with his feet, make them with his arm, make them with his head. I mean, who’s able to do that, playing in this league? Very few guys.” – 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh

“Frank is an amazing running back. Once again, I feel like he is the most underrated running back in the NFL. He does everything for our offense. He runs the ball. If we ask him to block, he does it. If we ask him to catch a pass he does it. What he means to this team and what he contributes really can’t be quantified.” – 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick on RB Frank Gore

“I didn’t know [the wall] was that close. I didn’t know their wall was right there. As soon as I looked up, the wall was right there. It just knocked the wind out of me a little bit.” – 49ers TE Vernon Davis on hitting the wall after his 52-yard touchdown reception

“That’s Kaep. He can do whatever: he can throw, he can run. That’s what makes him the player he is. He can do both. A lot of guys in the league can’t do that. Like I tell everybody, once it’s said and done he will be one of the top quarterbacks in this league.” – 49ers RB Frank Gore on teammate Colin Kaepernick
