Default Bowlen's Health

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...owlens-health/

The gathering of NFL owners in New Orleans for league meetings will result in plenty of real-time reporting and observations on Twitter.

An early eyebrow-raiser comes from Bart Hubbuch of the New York Post, who says that Broncos owner Pat Bowlen looks “frail and out of it.”

“His right-hand man just had to show him how to get in a car,” Hubbuch writes. “Sad.”

Rumors and reports have been emerging for months regarding Bowlen’s health. The team consistently has denied that Bowlen is ill.

If he is, we wish him well.

Really, was there any doubt after watching the Elway introductory presser?

makes me even more glad he hired fox, and elway seems to have filled into his role nicely. out of it or not, bowlen did a damn good job getting people who can take control on staff.

Does Bowlen have a kid who's interested in football?

This is sad to hear. I hope for the best.

I've got the feeling Elway will eventually become at least, a majority owner of the team...

He said that none of his kids had interest in taking over the family business.

Although the drunk jokes probably should have stopped about a year ago, I'd say it's definitely time now.

fair enough I did seem to post that in a tone.
No this makes me sad as hell but whenever it came up it was very hard to have a discussion about the future of this team because people rushed into say everything was fine and nothing will change
I fear what happens next with this team. If Elway has been brought in with the idea that he will lead the next group to by the team then wonderful. But it not this team could be ripe for the picking if Bowlen has not put very specific plans in place. His children have all ready made it clear they have no interest in owning the Broncos.

When it's all said and done, I think Elway will be taking this team over after Bowlen.

I believe part of brining him in now, and Elway agreeing to it finally, is to develop the turnover plan before it becomes too late.

Yeah, the new report just flat out scares me. When it rains, it pours...


I blame McDouche.

This does clarify Ellis' poisoning of Bowlen's decision a few years ago for me:

Bowlen remained silent and unseen during the most tumultuous period of his ownership. There had been rumors for at least a year -- including an admission from Bowlen himself that he was losing his memory. Elway is introduced as the VP, and Bowlen can barely muster a few slurred sentences. This was on video, plain as day. Yet this goes completely untouched by the local media... coupled with a display of outright denial regarding Bowlen's obvious health problem by a faction of posters on this board.

Now a profootballtalk article suggests there might be a problem, and people are starting to worry. Makes perfect sense.

I'm not worried one bit about the Broncos future, the franchise will be fine considering it's been a top 10-15 NFL earner for the last decade plus. I'm just more worried about the man who gave me 2 Superbowl wins with his money, some fans will never experience that. I hope Pat's health picks up.

Pat was fine when I sat down with him He's been in D.C and now is in New Orleans so it's hard to believe he can't get in a car.


I'm told by reliable source at owners meetings, Bowlen was busy talking to people in lobby today and went thru killer workout Friday.

i know weve gone over this like 30 times, but that was pretty clearly a joke. the topic was in discussion to super bowls and he said it in jest, saying its been so long since we won a super bowl he barely remembers them.
