Black Takes Slap At Former Position Coach

October 7th, 2012

Who took over for Joe Barry and coached the Bucs linebackers the last two seasons?

That’s a reasonably tough trivia question. And the anwer is a guy that Quincy Black clearly didn’t think too highly of, Joe Baker. Black told Tampa Tribune scribe eye-RAH! Kaufman that he appreciates the change Bucs’ front-seven coach Bryan Cox has brought to the table this season.

“Coach Cox has a linebacker’s personality,” strongside linebacker Quincy Black said, “and that’s something we haven’t had around here for a couple of years.”

Hmm, it’s noteworthy to Joe that Black was voted by teammates as a Bucs captain last season yet, from this comment, was harboring a lack of respect for his position coach. There’s a lousy combination.

Black has hardly earned his gigantic contract this season (13 tackles) but he’s no longer a head-shake inducing liability.

It’s no surprise that Greg Schiano, a former college linebacker, has the Bucs linebackers performing far above the dreadful play the Bucs got at the position last season.

    Black simply said that Cox had a linebacker’s personality and they hadn’t had a coach with a “linebacker’s personality” in a couple of years. He did not say that was a good thing or a bad thing. YOU are the one who drew the inference that Black did not think too highly of Joe Baker. Black did not state that.

    Joe here,

    @CyberDilemma — Yes, Joe is make the massive leap here. C’mon, dude. Not thinking your linebackers coach has adopted a linebackers personality is a problem.

    How do you make that conclusion from these quotes, ” Black told Tampa Tribune scribe eye-RAH! Kaufman that he appreciates the change Bucs’ front-seven coach Bryan Cox has brought to the table this season.”

    “Coach Cox has a linebacker’s personality,” strongside linebacker Quincy Black said, “and that’s something we haven’t had around here for a couple of years.”

    No disrespect but Schiano was a linebacker at Bucknell for 3 years while Cox was a 1st team All American college linebacker who played in the NFL for 11 years.

    I would hope that when Cox holds a defensive meeting at the Buc Palace, that he would keep the door locked.

    While the Little General takes a halftime siesta, there is no way Bryan Cox does not meet with his players and coordinator.

    If the fans ofof Tampa Bay will give this head coach and coaching staff a chance they will turn this thing around and become a very good football team. Jimmie Johnson’s first year in Dallas and Troy Aikman together did not look good at all the first year. They were a 1-15 team. I think everything turned out pretty good for them.

  5. Keith Says:

    Miguel, Schiano is responsible for everything, plus he handpicked Cox, who isn’t even the primary linebackers coach. Anyone who went to training camp can see that Schiano has a heavy hand on the LBs.

    Nice picture of Cato June?

  7. Big Marlon B Says:

    Hey Joe-
    That’s Cato June, not Quincy Black.

  8. ElioT Says:

    S**t I forgot Quincy was even on the team.

    Feel free to let your presence be known Mr. Black!!!

    Quincy is like David Copperfield: He’s rolling in the dough and can make himself disappear (mostly on Sundays)!

    I think more was made of the comment than was warranted.

    Agreed, but it’s a slow news day for the Bucs. I appreciate the effort Joe!

  12. Andrew Says:

    Miggie isn’t worth spending the money on. A better investment would be an “Ignore comments by…” button. Like they use to uave on the bucs message board.

  14. Tomcin Says:

    I would say its to bad you don’t have a linebackers personality Black.

    Cato June wore #59, believe that’s Black wearing #58 in the pic. I’ve commented before how poor the prior coaching staff was, especially Baker. He did a horrible job with the DB’s, and once Barry left they moved him to LB coach instead of finding a quality replacement. He was so highly thought of around the NFL that the only gig he could land was as an ASST. DB coach in Dallas.
