Default Bowlen nearing 300 wins

Quote:
If the Broncos come anywhere near expectations this year, Pat Bowlen would become only the 14th single or family NFL owner to reach 300 overall wins.

And with his current .595 winning percentage, Bowlen would have the highest winningest percentage in the 300 club.

I have had a rough week and to distract myself I have been rewatching old games, Bowlen really is one of the best owners in football.

He may have jumped the gun and latched on to mCd without thinking it through but he learned and was able to get the right people in place to turn it around quicker than I thought it could be turned around.

Hope Pat gets his 300, he is well deserving of it.

He'd have 400 if he wasn't so broke.

Too bad he only remembers 13 of them since he was drunk and in the welfare line.

By my estimation Bowlen made two huge mistakes;

Hiring a promising young coach and giving him too much power

Not firing Shanahan three years sooner and replacing him with Kubes

Do they let owners into the HOF? He would be deserving imho.

I love Pat Bowlen. Everything about him. His Canadian heritage. His comb-over. His plastic wife. His drunken performance at the HOF speech for Zim. Hiring Shanahan. Firing Shanahan. Hiring Elway. The new Jumbo-tron. All of it.

God bless Mr. Not-really-gutless.
