Default The Don "Wink" Martindale approval poll (following Q1 of 2010)

An approval poll after Q1 for a Broncos defensive coordinator may be moot, but I am hoping this season is the year the epic collapses stop.



His favorite movie he's seen lately? The Hangover.



Favorite musician? Rogers & Zapp (I have no idea who this is.)



Favorite meal on the road? "I haven't turned one down yet!"



Wait...

I like that he seems to be adjusting, and the D seems to be improving on a weekly basis

I approve the work he is doing till now.One of the main reasons we are in all the games is due to our defense.

I like what Wink has done. He doesn't bring pressure a lot of the time, but when he does it's pretty effective. He lets his players make plays, and we tackle very well for the most part. I'm pretty pleased, all in all.

Plus, I met him about two months ago at a bar downtown, and he's a ****in' cool-ass guy.

I approve of the rush defense, it seems to be improving, I disapprove of the pass rush and the lack of interesting blitzes, those add up to fence sitting.

Pass rush has more to do with talent. Hasn't been a lot of blitzes but I thought he had some good ones dialed in during the Tennessee game.

Basically this.

I'm on the fence, but getting there. It's his first D-Coordinator job... a little OJT might help in the long run.

Creatively designed and well timed blitzes are a big part of successful blitzs. I'd like to see more creativity, use Dawkins and DJ or even a corner.

I am also glad we don't blitz just to blitz...it's WAY too easy to get caught with your pants down like that.

Yeah I know it's give and take, but I like some of the ones he is throwing out there in moderation.

I have a sneeky feeling that if this poll was posted after the Ravens game....it would be much different.

I like what Wink has done so far. There has been improvement every week, and the defense is noticeably more physical than I can remember a Broncos defense being. Part of that is personnel, but some of that comes from the top.

I thought the game plan he put together against the Colts was fantastic.

Add in the fact that he's lost his more dynamic player, and I've been impressed overall with how they've played so far.

We should have a poll on the approval rating of that tye-dye shirt he wears. That thing is hideous.

I loved how he used Dawkins against VY last week. That was good gambling, and good coaching. He is putting the team in a good position to win.

I know this sounds funny, but I a really looking towards the Chiefs game to see if he really has things "fixed." That final game last season was an embarrassment, and the Broncos need to show that they have learned how to defeat their divisional foes.

Excellent work against Tenn, but still not enough to put me flat in the "approval" column. Looking forward to more improvement.

I approve. It's his first gig as a coordinator and he's learning as he goes but he's done a good job of making half time adjustments and taking away other teams' best players. He'll make more mistakes but will continue to get better.

Robert Ayers is turning into a bonafide star on this team, which is good. Where are the picks, though? We need to work on grabbing the football from the opposing quarterback...

I can see this view. We need to be patient with him though. For his first time he's doing really well.

Fully agree. But coaching isn't a learning on the job business. He'll have to continue to compete and be a top notch DC week in and week out regardless of experience like he did last week, imo.
