Tampa Bay Quarterback Josh Freeman: It's always good to have a fast start, especially playing in an environment like this one. I think it makes things a lot easier down the road.
Tampa Bay Coach Greg Schiano: Guys are getting more comfortable with what we're doing and with each other. We're getting better and that's what you're supposed to do.
Tampa Bay Running Back Doug Martin: It's hard to come from college to the NFL. The speed of the game is definitely increased, and this is a feel thing. You're looking for that rhythm, as a running back, getting comfortable in the offense and having that game-time experience. I'm definitely there, right where I need to be.
