Cody Grimm “Overwhelmed”

October 10th, 2010

cody grimm 1010Bucs stud rookie safety Cody Grimm spoke on the Buccaneers Radio Network and had a few thoughts to share about the win, a robbery of a 24-21 victory at Cincinnati.

“You can play the best game of your life and lose and you feel like crap. We didn’t give up.”

On his pick-six, also his first NFL interception: “I only needed to catch the ball. Coach Morris called a great defense for that play. It feels good to help the team out but I didn’t do much on that play.”

On the mentality of the Bucs late in the game:

“Everyone stayed calm. We didn’t try to bring in different calls or anything crazy. We just kept playing and we knew if we had an opportunity, we would make plays. Aqib Talib made a great play [on the Sabby interception]. People won’t understand what a great play that was. Everyone just played to the last seconds. We made mistakes but everyone stayed committed and we came out on top.”

On Sabby’s 31-yard interception return:

“I was thinking we needed to stop them and keep them out of field goal range. I was happy Sabby got it because he’s a fast guy. I just watched and thought, ‘He’s still running!’

“When I saw the field goal go through I was overwhelmed with joy that we didn’t have to go to overtime or lose.”

    There’s nothing misleading about that headline in any way shape or form. In fact, it’s very accurate.

    Grimm played very well today. Not at all like a rookie! Think we are set at one safety. This kid has great instincts!! Hope jones is back next week!

    I have known Cody since he was in high school. I don’t believe in the notion of 110% but I do believe in 100% and he ALWAYS gives 100%. He has football in his blood and has the instincts that only a life of watching and playing can give you. You will also not find a nicer person. Thanks to the Bucks for taking a chance on what must have seemed like a long shot . . .
