He had as many Super Bowl appearances (seven) as losing seasons, and the Broncos had a 354-240-1 record since he bought the team in 1984. His competitiveness, kindness and humility are the qualities that I will always remember. As Chairman of the Broadcast Committee, Pat helped expand the audience for America's Game and prepare our league for a changing media landscape.

"The Broncos are very saddened that Mr. Bowlen is no longer able to be part of the team's daily operations due to his condition", the team announced at the time. Pat Bowlen grew up playing hockey and football and running track. The late owner will be enshrined in August, joining the likes of Jerry Jones, Art Rooney and Al Davis as team owners in the Hall. In February, Bowlen was elected into the Pro Football Hall of Fame as as a contributor. "Even during his battle with Alzheimer's, you could still see that same strength and dignity in Pat that he brought to the office every single day for more than 30 years".

"It's worth noting that the Pat Bowlen Trust still does, in fact, run the Broncos Joe Ellis at the head of that", Rapoport said. "He was also an extraordinary leader at the league level during a key period of growth".

Under his stewardship, the Broncos won Super Bowls in 1998, '99 and 2016. Bowlen played football at OU during his freshman year, but left the team and turned his attention to academics, majoring in business and law. "He gave this team everything we needed to be the best and compete for championships, and the focus was always on football", Elway, 58, wrote.

Takakura, who picked several World Cup debutantes in the starting 11, said her team had been slow to find their attacking rhythm. The point was not lost on numerous more than 25,000 fans who attended the match at Paris' Parc de Princes.

Bowlen also became one of the NFL's most powerful owners during his tenure.

"I get it, and I respect that", Manning said, adding that Bowlen flew back to Denver from his offseason home in Hawaii to welcome him when he signed with the Broncos, and they were friends afterward.

Along the way, Bowlen repeatedly proved his willingness to empower the likes of head coach Mike Shanahan and Elway, now the designated team runner, with the ability to make decisions that kept the Broncos relevant even during less successful periods - although the past two seasons have been marked by a serious decline. His shoes will never be filled. "We'll continue to take care of his team as if he were here today".

Bowlen's wife, Annabel, who recently announced that she, too, has Alzheimer's, and their children were on hand to accept the Lombardi Trophy on his behalf in Santa Clara, California.
