Default The Josh McDaniels approval poll (following Q1 of 2010)

Like a Presidential approval rating poll. The team is 2-2 at the end of the 1st quarter of 2010, McDaniels is .500 as HC of the Broncos.

approve, except for his running game choices. maroney has not showed he deserves as many screens/runs as hes getting, in fact hes showed the opposite. hes stubborn about the running game for some reason, like hes going to keep doing it because its supposed to work.

passing game is absolutely phenomenal.

I took part in this poll, even though it lacked baja's seal of approval.

I approve of the overall direction this team is going, the defense is looking good and playing physical

the passing game is coming along and he really knows his stuff in that area

but some of the whacky things he does is not setting this team up for immediate results in certain areas

for now he gets an In-com-plete,

Love the passing game, hate the running game, like the defense, hate the special teams.

Still a work in progress.

As Parcells use to say, "You are what your record says you are"

Unfortunately we've been around .500 for WAY too long.

I'm thinking he's running the ball to at least keep the defense honest. In general, I think he's got the squad moving in the right direction and believe he'll make talent on the OL his next priority. I think he's built a very good staff (sans Preifer) and has made some outstanding personal decisions in upgrading the QB and WR positions while shedding potential payroll simultaneously. He inherited the worst 4-3 defense in the business and in two years has turned it into a damn fine 3-4 unit without it's best pass rusher. Overall, I most love the culture change with this team - a squad that plays smart, tough and physical football. He's made his share of personel mistakes (drafting R.Quinn, trading A.Smith - hehe) just as every coach/GM has - but in general I think he's built a much deeper and complete roster than he inherited and I approve of the job he's doing.

But that's just me and I wouldn't be suprised at all to see this poll show a heavy dissaproval of McDaniels - I'm just of a differen't opinion than the majority of the Mane.

I am 75-25. I have some reservations but I do think we have become more physical on the defensive side of the ball. The special teams needs serious improvement. I thought there was a good chance we could lose today's game when we kicked off with around a minute left by someone returning the kick. The run blocking needs to improve.

I will say I haven't seen the NFL as wide open as it is now in a long time. There is not one team that truly looks like a world beater right now. If we keep improving we have a chance to make noise this year. So I guess I approve as of right now.

I just cannot approve of the worst rushing offense in Broncos history. Its a matter of principle.

I will defer judgement until the season is over. I will say I am satisfied so far, but I see a lot of room for improvement and ultimately the win-loss record of the season will be determine approval.

It doesnt matter what time you think it was.

Dude screwed up the line for at least the first four games of this season, and for who knows how long.

One of the major criticisms of Shanny was that his offenses werent able to pound the ball in short yardage. McD took that problem and made it worse, which I didnt think was possible. It is now pathetic on the "all-time worst" level. That is attributable to McD and should be reason enough for anyone to hold back unyeilding praise and adulation.

I mother****ing approve, howerver I don't care for his mother****ing calls on 4th down in the red zone. I'd rather see him taking the 3 mother****ing points more and trusting that mother****ing defense.

This I agree with. There were two ways to win that game today, kicking the field goal and kicking off would have also worked.

i am a believer of McD and I approve of what he is doing. This team isn't a super bowl contender....yet, but this team is tougher and just a few players away from being a real force to be reckoned with.

this team may not end with a great record, but these Broncos are much better than the Broncos of the last 3 years of Shanahan.

the defense's play today had to have earned that type of respect from him. i think we may see him take the 3 and believe the defense can get them the ball back.

pretty much my take also

I like a lot of the stuff we are doing but I am flat out embarrassed at our run blocking and special teams (on defense) right now.

I don't even know how we fix something like those 2 things on the fly, but I have to say the thing that impresses me most with McD is what he has done with Orton.

That alone is simply incredible and that is not a shot at Orton either.

If we can get our line and backs on the same page, this will be really fun to watch especially with the defense playing lights out right now.

Who the hell thought we would hold CJ to 53 yards and no scores today

On the whole, I approve. I'm aghast at the state of our running game and our OL and our general theory of drafting, but he continues to improve our defense and its doing quite well, even without Doom, which is an achievement he should be proud of. I like how he is working in youngsters (Cox, Bay Bay) and his passing system is very successful so far. Seeing as how he turned a weak player into a very solid QB, I am most excited about what he'll turn Tebow into. Given the entirety of the circumstances, I find 2-2 to be quite acceptable so far.

Orton has his yards. McD bragged he would bring the scoring. That has been an epic failure thus far.

No where in the NFL will you win consistently or anything permanent rushing for 16 yds.
