Pat Bowlen Snubbed From Hall of Fame Again
The Denver Broncos will have to wait one more year for Pat Bowlen to get into the Hall of Fame as Bobby Beathard will be the contributor finalist in 2018.
Pat Bowlen will have to wait another year before he will have his chance to become enshrined in Canton, Ohio.
The Hall of Fame has named longtime General Manager and Personnel Administrator Bobby Beathard as the contributor finalist for enshrinement in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Once again, the Denver Broncos owner who has done so much for the team and the NFL is snubbed.
Pat Bowlen has done so much for the Denver Broncos and the National Football League during his time as Owner. It just continues to shock myself and Broncos Country that he continues to be passed over.
Ever since Pat Bowlen took over for the Denver Broncos, the team has more Super Bowl appearances than losing seasons. He has worked to help get the National Football League to where it is today regarding television.
The countless things that Mr. Bowlen has done make it feel like all of his accomplishments are being pushed to the side. I have no doubt in my mind that the past two years that Pat Bowlen deserved to be in.
Bobby Beathard is a former General Manager and Personnel Administrator. He was a part of the Kansas City Chiefs, Miami Dolphins, Washington Redskins, and San Diego (now Los Angeles) Chargers. He has led all four teams to at least one Super Bowl appearance.

Perhaps his biggest contribution was with Washington during their Super Bowl years. But just looking at overall accomplishments, Pat Bowlen should have been in before Bobby Beathard.
Looks like the earliest that we will see Pat Bowlen in the Hall of Fame is 2019. Congrats to Bobby Beathard, but it is a shame that Pat Bowlen will not have his time in 2018.
