Another Feather For George Warhop: Josh Allen

The Bucs were down to their third-string left guard tonight to protect the health of their franchise quarterback, America’s Quarterback.

No problem.

Former fan punching bag turned 2015 here George Warhop, the Bucs’ offensive line coach, had third-stringer Josh Allen ready, while Kevin Pamphile left town for a funeral.

Allen was stout against the Browns tonight and drew praise from Dirk Koetter after the game. Obviously, the Bucs’ offense was humming against the Cleveland and nobody seemed to notice the Bucs were rolling with a left guard with flimsy experience.

Allen has played for the Bucs in three NFL games, during the Chase for Jameis in 2014. Heck, Allen didn’t even play against Jacksonville last week.

Pretty impressive stuff from Allen and Warhop, who seemingly can do no wrong.

    Hey joe, didn’t you put down warhop back in 2014 ish? Just asking…
    Absolutely, wanted to run the guy out of town. He was a highly ineffective coach back then. O-line looked like it quit, especially considering Smith, Mankins and Dotson were not at all washed up. –Joe

    He’s really made me and plenty others eat their words. After the Cousins/Gilkey fiasco, he was on real thin ice. Glad he’s turned it around and really molded his unit into one of the strongest on the team.

    I don’t know why some of you keep messing with Joe when archives are readily available. If you like the content here then accept the typos and stuff but don’t look silly and question his integrity.

  4. Waterboy Says:

    Who was the OC in 2014?

  5. Capt.Tim Says:

    I too got served a big slice of Humble pie, By Coach Warhop
    I was wrong about him.
    But to FINALLY have a strong O-line-
    I was happy to eat my slice of that pie.

    Go Coach Warhop, Go O-Line
    Go Bucs!

    Lol Capt. Tim……….No whipped cream needed?!?!

  7. LovieBall Says:

    Our run game was missing the starters but overall it was fine.

    We weren’t getting much push in the run game but pass protection looked very solid.

  10. Jolly Bucs Fan Says:

    @Bucfan951 the Joes are of course human like us.and after 2014 any human wouldvee wanted warhop gone. I am glad we were all wrong tho.

    That being said I saw d. Smith get beat very badly a few times today

    I guess the morale of the story is that coaches can suck but get better with time maybe ?

  12. stanglassman Says:

    Not at all strider. Worhop never forgot to coach he was just put in a ridiculous situation asking to coach the O-Line without an OC. I supported him when it seemed like no one else did. Just look at the guy resume, bad coaches don’t stay in this league for 20 plus years and be tought of so highly among your peers. It’s never as simple as some fans (and bloggers) believe.

  13. MadMax Says:

    Yes, O line is looking good and deep. But it was the Browns……just keeping things in perspective.

  14. DemBoyzFromDaBay727 Says:

    Shout out to Allen. Solid backup. The guy I’m worried about is D.Smith, he has looked shake at best sll preseason and doesn’t look comfortable without his mentor Mankins at his side anymore. Something to keep a eye on.

  15. Buccfan37 Says:

    The Bucs looked good, I’m expecting a heaping helping of this level of grit and fight just exploding.

  16. Mike Johnson Says:

    Lets not get to excited Buc Fans. after all, it was the Clev Browns we beat last night. We will take it though.

  17. DavidBigBucsFan99 Says:

    They played well against a 34 but there was no game planning so go figure

  18. James Walker Says:

    Sometime it is the culture. Who knows how deep Logan Mankin’s impact really was? Is it coaching? Attitude? Or are the players just balling hard!
