At halftime of the Bucs 31-15 loss to the Dallas Cowboys Saturday night, NFL Network analyst Deion Sanders said the Bucs had quit on coach Raheem Morris. At the time, Tampa Bay trailed 28-0, had only first down and had yielded 60 unanswered points dating back to the loss at Jacksonville Dec. 11. But Bucs tackle Jeremy Trueblood disagrees with Prime Time's observation, noting that team played better in the second half, outscoring the Cowboys 15-3. “Basically, he doesn’t play for us. He’s an outsider looking in,'' Trueblood said of Sanders. "Great player, but that doesn’t mean he knows exactly what’s happening in our locker room and on our field. You know, you respect what people have to say, but you don’t always have to agree with them. “We wouldn’t have done better as the game went on, so I don’t really find any merit in that at all. The offense started playing better toward the end, if we had quit, that wouldn’t have happened.’’
