Jameis Says O-Line Coach Is “Mean”

Offensive line coach George Warhop has the full attention of Jameis Winston

America’s Quarterback, Jameis Winston, knows all the politically correct things to say (unless he’s talking to game officials), but sometimes he puts raw meat on the bone for fans and media.

Take yesterday, when Jameis described offensive line coach George Warhop as “mean and demanding.” It’s not every day a player calls a coach “mean.” It’s a widely held belief that the Bucs need Bad Hombres. So perhaps that’s good..

Jameis was lauding the offensive line and said the O-line respects their nasty, tough-guy leader and works their asses off for him.

Joe couldn’t let that one go without a follow-up question. So Jameis? What makes Warhop so demanding?

“He’s a perfectionist,” Jameis said of Warhop. “And when you have a coach like my coach – like all of our coaches really – they’re perfectionists. And Coach Warhop, he’s just so respected. When something comes out of his mouth, you’ve got to grasp it and take it in and hold onto it.”

Tip of the cap to Lovie Smith for hiring Warhop, another to Dirk Koetter for not firing in favor of “his guy,” as too many head coaches do when they get hired.

Warhop, if he heard Jameis yesterday, probably smiled. The grizzled NFL veteran, who once was Bill Parcells’ O-line coach in Dallas, takes great pride in being “the same prick” (Warhop’s words) day after day.

    Did LOVIE do something right?! 10 games to play with 6 games to win to show improvement over the last REGIME!!

    Question, BigHog: I probably missed it somewhere, but why do you consistently repeat this mantra about 9 wins being needed to show improvement over the last regime? Do you mean in two seasons? The last regime won a total of 8 games in two seasons. Personally, I would consider winning only 9 nine games in two seasons to be pretty unsuccessful.

    Since last season included only 6 wins, clearly you wouldn’t require 9 to show improvement over 6 – that doesn’t make any sense. So, I assume you mean 9 wins in two seasons. That’s a very low standard. I hope the players and coaches expect more of themselves.

    Rich, naw I don’t think BigHog counts that way. If he meant 2 seasons he would say 26 games to play and 6 games to win. Or . . . BigHog just doesn’t count.

    Creepiest picture I’ve ever seen on here. Looks like a HOF bust.

    @big hog……i hear you and your correct…..imo 10wins is needed for this year to be considered a success….funny how once dirk got in charge everyone wants to be patient….dirk has more talent and only 1side of the ball to worry about….get it done….GO BUCS!!!!

  6. Shadow man Says:

    813 wtf are you talking about. We could literally lose every game the rest of te year and still show major improvement. No one is preaching patience. We said the same crap during lovies first year saying be patient.

    Dirk has already surpassed lovie in every aspect except the fact that he’s not as black as lovie. 10 wins is not needed to be a success nor show improvement. There is no way you could look anyone in the eye and say the team doesn’t look better in every aspect over last 6 years. Coaching, penalties, gameplan, adjustments..would you like me to keep going?

    You and big hog can take the bigoted views elsewhere for everyone’s sake, please. No one could possibly believe that we would be a better team right now if lovie was still the captain of this ship. No one.

    @shadowman…..BS….what happened to being patient after last year….did we not improve….dirk has shown the ability to beat bad teams but hasn’t won a game people expect us to lose….dirk has had his fair share of bad coaching, lack of adjustments, misuse of the clock….get real…..we had zero talent on the defensive side of the ball…..lovie didn’t have half the talent on defense that dirk has now….open your eyes and go screw yourself….no one is questioning smitty for benching banks and verner but lovie got blasted for it….dirk has more talent….if he doesn’t win 10games this year he’s a failure…face it….GO BUCS!!!!

    @Shadow man – 100%

    @813bucboi – 10 wins likely gets the Bucs into the playoffs, so you’re saying a first year NFL head coach is expected to do something with this team that they haven’t done in a decade, or he’s a failure? How do you ever expect to be taken seriously by anyone with that opinion? Such nonsense.

    BTW Morris was the last coach to get 10 wins and you’d be hard pressed to find anybody that misses him as a head coach. Schiano couldn’t do it in two years. Lovie couldn’t do it in two years. But Koetter is expected to do it in his first year? Ok.

    Good one Dewey. He does look, let’s say, statuesque.

  10. 813bucboi Says:

    @realitycheck…..he should make the playoffs….lovie got 6wins out of a team that had no leadership and zero talent on defense….its not like dirk was on the couch or on another staff…he was here last year….he didn’t have to teach a new scheme…the pieces were all in place…he has more talent….the one thing dirk didn’t have to do that the other coaches have to do and failed was find a franchise qb….he has that and has already worked 1 season with him…..

    I guess your just use to and accept losing….that’s a sad reality check….GO BUCS!!!
