Quincy Black Injured

September 18th, 2011

Not that he’ll be missed by Joe or many other Bucs fans, but Quincy Black hurt his ankle against Minnesota and was removed from Sunday’s game because of it.

Raheem Morris said during his news conference that Black wasn’t producing and Dakoda Watson was inserted, careful to say that Blacked wasn’t punished.

“Quincy had an injury. He went down with the ankle deal. He was limping. I got him out of the game. He wasn’t productive for us today. Hopefully we can get him back next week and see where he is. I didn’t bench him.”

As Joe wrote earlier, the Bucs need to see a whole lot more of Watson.

    I’m not saying this has anything to do with Black, but since you bring up an ankle injury it reminds me of something I find annoying. It’s when players have an injury and try to keep it a secret from the coaches in order to be “tough”.

    Larsen was injured most of the preseason and tried to hide it in order to keep playing. The line suffered as a result. Like I said, I’m not sure if Black kept playing beyond his initial injury but it happens all the time and it needs to stop.

    Unless you’re Brian Price you’re not helping your team by playing at 65%.

    Quincy Black is now suffering from Kyle Moore Syndrome – Looks like Tarzan, plays like Jane. Ask Kyle, I don’t think there’s a cure for that!!

  3. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    I call it Tony Mandarich syndrome.

    it looks like sabby the goat….outstanding specimen, but nothing on the field…..

    BTW i wanna ask, u guys are comfortable with geno hayes?????? WLB is our main LB, at least on this scheme, so saying that, im not comfortable, time to move on

    Notice they said he was not productive

    Don’t wish any injury on Quincy, but the hopes on defense rose when he left the game. He’s really playing badly- just not doing anything. Signing him to a big Contract was a monstrous mistake by Dominick- what was he think??

    Watson and Haywood are big improvements. Black should be cut . Now. Today. immediately. And mark should get a pay cut for screwing up that badly!!

  7. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    Cut a starter after only two games? Have you lost your marbles? If they operated using your philosophy there would be no players left.

    call me an arse, but…..good! he blew a herd of chimp today!

    it has to be unbelievably obvious when the coaches break down film that black is in another world out there. he takes horendous angles, stands flat footed 3 yards beyond the los and lets gaurds get right up on him, and conrtantly tries to arm tackle.

  10. gotbbucs Says:

    basic football fundamentals are completely lost on this guy. and it shouldn’t be an nfl coach’s job to teach an nfl player what he should have learned in highschool.

  11. Chace Says:

    Im not happy with the fact that he’s hurt…but he is really terrible out there. Geno at least has a few splash plays a game and needs to be consistent….but Black is a carbon copy of Ruud in his run defense and is terrible vs. the pass. Time t give Hayward and Watson some serious consideration.

  12. Espo Says:

    Keep playing Dakota Watson.

    1st Pick in the 2012 NFL Draft the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Select….Vontaze Burfict

  14. SRQBucFan Says:

    for as many diamonds in the rough Domink has found. He has also thrown a crap ton of money at under achievers… Faine, Derrick Ward, Quincy Black. Faine is at least decent. but the other 2 are god awful. I would personally like to see our starting LB corp be WL=Watson, ML=Foster, SL=Hayward.. Just saying.

  15. SRQBucFan Says:

    or even flip flop Hayward and Foster .. Allowing Both to play their NATURAL positions.

  16. SRQBucFan Says:

    Plus Hayward knows all the calls and how to set up the D.. he’s been around long enough to do so!

  17. Capt.Tim Says:

    FlBoyinDallas( that explains alot!)

    Again, not to add to your already substantial confusion, but I- along with every pro scouting report- have been pointing out that Black is totally worthless for Nine months. It hasn’t been a secret!! The only people who were oblivious to the fact were Mark Dominick and Raheem Morris. Further Proof that Dom is a draft specialist, with no talent for Vets. Also proof that Raheem needs a defensive Co-ordinator. Possibly Millard!

    Neither Black nor Hayes should be Starters in the NFL

    NYC BUC +1

    Dakota Watson and Preston parker have earned there paycheacks!!! This was Jones best game as well…. Looks like we do have some depth… I wonder what will happen when Tanard comes back….

    Don’t forget the Vikings 2nd possession when it was 3rd and LONG and McNabb took off running to his left and started running down the sideline and the only one between him and a first down was Black. The only thing Black had to do was take one more step towards the sideline to force him out. If he would’ve done that and McNabb cut back infield our other D would’ve annialiated him. Instead Black cuts back infield leaving McNabb the space to tiptoe down the sideline for the easy first down!!!! WTH! I’m in agreement with you, Joe. Black didn’t deserve his contract extension and we’re in for a long year if we keep him in there.
    With the first pick in the 2012 NFL draft…the Tampa Bay Buccaneers draft…a Linebacker. Mark it down.

    He hurt his ankles over running plays and getting juked out of his soul.
