And ow all that has changed. As Broncos owner Pat Bowlen is stepping down. "Denver Broncos owner Pat Bowlen is stepping down as he battles Alzheimer's disease, the National Football League team said on Wednesday, adding that it was saddened he could no longer take part in the club's daily operations."We continue to offer our full support, compassion and respect to 'Mr. B,' who has faced Alzheimer's disease with such dignity and strength." The news was hard for many a fan but the team's President was sad as well.
