Horse Tracks 1/30/10 - Martindale offers first comments since becoming Broncos DC


DB - Anxious to Improve Under Martindale - Gray Caldwell
"I think we're going to be sound," Dumervil said. "I think he's a smart coach and I think he's going to create a lot of problems for opponents. I think he knows how to mix it up well. With his background of working with different guys that have been successful in this league, I'm excited. I think it's going to be a great deal for us, and I'm looking forward to working with him."

DPP - Broncos' Martindale, Ryan linked - Mike Klis
"I've been with the Ryans for about 12 years," Martindale said. "It's that type of mentality, get guys playing hard. Schematically, you don't tip what you're going to do. But mostly, I know our guys are going to play hard, and we're going to be fun to watch." "Wink's going to be great, no question," Rex Ryan said. "I told him he can finish second in the league."

DPP - Clady hears the criticism - Mike Klis
"As an offensive line, we were disappointed with how we played, especially in the second half of the season. I know we'll improve and be better next year."

PFR - HOF 2010: Floyd Little - Chase Stuart
Frankly, Stuart blows Little's candidacy out of the water here. I know there are a lot of emotions tied to the HOF for Broncos fans (including those of yours truly), but the arguments that Floyd was 7th all-time when he retired (#s 8 & 9 aren't in, either) and that he kept the Broncos in Denver aren't what make a HOFer. Now, I didn't see him play. If you watched him play and saw a HOFer, that's another thing...

DP - Warner a Hall of Famer only if T.D. is first - Mike Klis
Obviously I'd like for this to be the case, but I'd only point out that Warner had 6 excellent seasons, not 4. Personally, I think they should both be in - but Warner had the better career.

DP - Dumervil’s Pro Bowl guests - Lindsay Jones

FO - 2009 Adjusted Games Lost Totals - Bill Barnwell
"On the other side of the coin sit the Denver Broncos, who beat our preseason expectations with some close wins and a remarkable string of health. Broncos starters combined to miss 15 games this season; the two Super Bowl teams each lost more starts than that from just one guy (Jammal Brown, Anthony Gonzalez). Ryan Harris was responsible for eight of those 15 missed starts by himself, thanks to a gruesome-sounding dislocated toe. It's a remarkable total, and it's one not likely to recur, which is why our 2010 projection for Denver is unlikely to be very hopeful."
