Gallery of Broncos memories: Orange and blue days gone by
DENVER -- With the passing of Denver Broncos longtime owner Pat Bowlen, "heaven got a little bit more orange and blue," his family said in a statement early Friday morning. Bowlen will be remembered for transforming the team into a winning franchise, having bought the club in 1984. During his 35 seasons as owner, Bowlen's team compiled a .596 winning percentage — tied for second-best in the NFL during that span.
