Broncos Country has a lot to be thankful for.

We have ever since Pat Bowlen bought the organization over 30 years ago.

John Elway.

Peyton Manning.

Terrell Davis.

Floyd Little.

Mr. B.

The list goes on and on.

That’s not what this is about. This is the stuff Denver Broncos fans may not think about. Some are off the beaten path.

Still, they are things Broncos Country has to be grateful for or the Broncos aren’t what they are today. It all ties together. These aspects are just as important as the ones we all know about and mentioned above.

Most importantly, I’m thankful for Mr. B. He is the reason the Broncos are what they are.

The success they have had and the organization they have become is because of him.

There would be no better way for this season to end than with Elway lifting the Lombardi Trophy and saying these four words: This one’s for Pat.

As you get ready to chow on turkey, potatoes and stuffing, here are the five things I’m thankful for as Broncos fan.
