Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston expressed remorse Thursday for an outburst at the end of a 22-19 loss to the Carolina Panthers. On the Bucs' final possession, Winston was sacked by Kawann Short and stripped of the football, but believed he'd recovered it. The officiating crew did not see it that way, and Winston did not hold back showing his dissatisfaction with the call. He had to be restrained by teammates and at one point attempted to charge back onto the field, unintentionally knocking over Shelton Quarles, the Bucs' director of football operations. "I knew I had the ball and it didn't go my way," Winston said Thursday. "Now, looking back, I know I can't do that. But man, I want to win. That's just being competitive. If you want to win and if you feel like you had something and someone tells you otherwise, 'Man. Come on now.'" Winston said his frustration was purely about that play and not about the way the Bucs' 4-11 season has gone. "It was just that game. I wanted to win that game," he said. "Offense did a good job. I had a couple of turnovers there that kind of hurt us. But having that turnover at the end of the game, man, that hurts. I don't like losing." Winston also said that he did not confront defensive tackle Chris Baker in the locker room after the game. The Tampa Bay Times reported that Winston and Kwon Alexander were not happy with Baker's lack of remorse for his role in surrendering the game-winning touchdown. Baker's effort has been called into question at times this season.
