This one is for you Pat.

There's been much criticism of Pat Bowlen around here and I've been one of his biggest critics.

I want to give a big time hats off the Mr. Bowlen. It took balls to step up and sign off on PM contract. I owe you an apology Pat and I and sorry I jumped to unfounded conclusions.


Anyone else feel like having some Pat Bowlen crow?

I'm certainly grateful, but I think this was all Elway from start to finish. Yes, Pat said yes to spending the money. But what kind of fool would say no, granted the fact that doctors were giving him the okay? Yes, thanks Pat, for making the easiest decision you will ever have to make. You can go back to your liquor cabinet now.

I would say go buy yourself a new furcoat to celebrate but your 96 million lighter so make sure that Peytons first check clears first.

He's been accused of being cheap, this is not the act of a cheap man. He already had a big time money maker at QB for way less money A cheap owner would just have rode with Tebow.

He did step up when he easily could have said no we are set with Tebow and none of us would have been the wiser / BUT he didn't.

That doesn't speak to you?

He looked a lot better today, too. I hope his health is in good order and he owns this team for a long time. This is ponying up some serious jack and taking a risk they really didn't have too. They could have ridden the Tebow train for a great while whether it produced wins or not, but they are swinging for the fences. I like it.

And as much as much as I disagreed with it at the time, it's starting to look like he knew what he was doing putting Elway in charge. Hopefully, in 10 years it will look as good as his hiring of Shanahan.

This is only a success when the Lombardi gets hoisted and not one second sooner.

We're not talking success or failure on this thread. Read to OP if you haven't

Bowlen has been crucified here for being cheap. Today he showed he is committed to winning. This gesture should be a big deal to all of us.

Pat Bowlen is an underappreciated NFL owner.

We are lucky to have him, compare him to many other NFL owners. Football comes first for Mr. Bowlen.

Pat does not look good. Maybe the Manning signing is an act of desperation on his part. Wants to get one more Super Bowl.

He looked better today than in past press conferences. Still he isn't what he was when he was sneaking into showers to hire coaches. Sad to see him aging like that.

Pat thinks we just signed Dakota Fanning. He's a big fan of the Twilight movies.

Signing Manning will cut down on Bowlens drinking.

Dont fear because Elway is here.

Pat seemed surprised Peyton wanted to shake his hand after introducing him. He called Peyton up when it was John's turn to speak. Quotes today say he just said yes and he's not a talent evaluator. Dude may not be "cheap" but he's an awful public speaker and seems once bitten twice shy of a retarded sloth. Go Broncos!

Not saying he doesn't have issues related to age just giving credit where credit is due.

I thought Pat Bowlen looked and talked a little better than the last pressor I saw him at. I think it was McDemolition's press conference? We could have worse thats for sure, owners unwilling to spend money like the cheaps, chuggers, and others. Big props to PB & hope is health is getting better!
