Pat Bowlen has been a wonderful owner for the Denver Broncos. A true class act. Below are just a few of the tweets from Denver Broncos players, fans, and the media that remind us all how lucky we have been to have him as the team’s owner. I’ll update this post as the day goes on. Best of luck to Pat Bowlen and his family.

Should Pat Bowlen be in the Hall of Fame? "Absolutely," Elway said. "I'd like his [bust] to be right next to mine."

DeMarcus Ware, on Bowlen: "(He) always had the mentality that it's not about me — it's about the coaches, players & doing the right thing."

Sad to hear of Pat Bowlen's battle with Alzheimer's. Awesome owner that cared about winning and treating his players with class and respect.

I feel like it's only right that I send a letter to Mr. Bowlen. If I can take time to write to Dick I definitely owe it to Mr. Bowlen.

I'm 34 years old. To me Pat Bowlen IS the Denver @broncos. To say his presence will be missed is an understatement. Best wishes, Mr. Bowlen!

Pat Bowlen steps down as Broncos' owner due to Alzheimer's, per the Denver Post. Bowlen is one of best owners in all of sports.

In many ways, Pat Bowlen was the perfect owner. Smart. Ultra competitive. Did anything to win. Did anything to avoid the spotlight.

Denver has been lucky to have Mr. Bowlen. So many players you talk to speak of their love for him. He set the tone for what this has become.
