Default Is it Time for Bowlen to Sell?

So with recent firing of the Goodman(s), the tighten of the purse strings on Free Agency, the cut back on the non-football staff, and ****ty economy. Is it time for Bowlen to sell the team to someone that willing to spend the money and keep Denver as one of the elite franchises in NFL.

Hell we talk about trading HOF corner, firing HoF head coaches, why not fire the owner.

As much as I enjoy the rejection the message board shouldn't have created the thread before I inserted the poll. There is a bug there.

He should absolutely sell. We all know that the Goodmans were the architects of the past 3 drafts better than Bowlen knows what's going on within the franchise he owns. This team is in the beginning of a youth movement, and we all already know that he's not doing in the free agency that still happens to be a month away just because they didn't do much last year.

Yes, yes, yes sell this team Pat!!! We in internet message board land are all capable of running this franchise better than you. Each of us would have guided this franchise to more than 5 Super Bowls in your time as ownership. You should be ashamed that you ONLY won 2 of them. We all would have hired personnel guys who would never miss on a FA or a draft pick and hired a coach who would never lose a game. Don't let the door hit you on the way out Pat!!

why should he sell? he has kept the team as a very respectable franchise for the last almost 30 years

this year he is doing what other franchises do almost every other year. it was time to clean house. he retained the people he felt were important and cut the dead weight.

why is it that after 14 years of the same routine that, everyone is freaking out because our owner had to do what was necessary? everyone here forgets that in the NFL changes happen yearly, and we were spoiled over the last 14 years to not have the constant change of other franchises, and that is due to good ownership.

also, i have no doubt in my mind that Bowlen will let McDaniels have the money necessary to bring in FA to make this team a winner again.

everyone will be eating words in a year or 2 when this team is once again competing for a Super Bowl.

Time will tell. I guess I will be boring and say lets see. So much change over the last month. I believe as of Dec 2008, this team was on its way to going deep into the play offs in 2010, mas o menos. If the HC and new GM cant put together a similar run, then I say Bowlen definitely screwed the pooch. But, as the owner he cant be fired and cant be run outta town. Hopefully this experiment works out.

Totally agree Herc. I was just about to say the same thing. There are so many people on here and other teams boards that think it's so easy to run a team and that they can do it. Let's all go play madden and make trades for Boldin, Suggs, Peppers, Haynesworth and come back and say hey look it's so simple we can trade Tatum and a 2 for Suggs.

What has this team really done in the past 3 yrs? Or even the past 10 yrs minus going to the AFC Championship? Since winning the Superbowls Denver has won more than 10 games only twice.

I thought Shanny would last one more year but I wasn't shocked at all to see him gone and no matter if he stayed or not it was time to shake things up. Let's just hold judgement on these moves until we at least see them in action before we comment one way or the other.

But Pat if you do sell the team don't sell for $ sell for draft picks because we need 12 picks for this year and 25 for the next two.

Maybe Pat thought the Goodmans were a threat to his power trip. It is Paul Bowlen's name on Dove Valley, not Shanny's or Goodmans.

I was bumbed when Shanny was fired but was looking forward to another solid draft to get us over the hump.

Now I think Bowlen is trying to go Bidwell or McCastet on us.

Wolf is goining to know how it really feels to be a Bears fan if any one of these moves does not pan out.

Bowlen has been actively in charge for over 30 years, at some point even a Chair of Board of company needs to move on.

I think that Bowlen should do an Art Model and bring in junior partner for buy in to boost the cash on hand of the team and create a successor for ownership group
