DENVER (AP) — Brittany Bowlen

  Royce Freeman Jersey White , one of Pat Bowlen’s seven children, said Saturday night she’s hoping to one day succeed her father as principal owner of the Denver Broncos.It was the first public declaration of her intention and it came at the Global Down Syndrome Foundation’s annual fashion show , where she is co-chair.The franchise has been run by a trust since Pat Bowlen stepped away several years ago to battle Alzheimer’s.“Right now, the Denver Broncos have an owner. It’s my father. Unfortunately, he can’t be involved in the day-to-day of the team,” Brittany Bowlen said. “I do have ambitions and goals to one day becoming the controlling owner of the Denver Broncos. And I’ll keep working toward those goals. I’m not there yet, but I really believe I can get there.”Brittany Bowlen, 28, received her master’s degree in business administration from Duke in May after graduating from Notre Dame with a degree in finance, working for two years at NFL headquarters and a year with the Broncos as a business analyst.Terms of the trust require five years’ experience with the league or team. Brittany Bowlen, who began a job with McKinsey & Company at the global consulting firm’s downtown Denver branch, said she doesn’t have a timetable to rejoin the Broncos for more front office experience.“I think it’s really important that I get experience outside of the football industry,” Brittany Bowlen said. “And I think that working at McKinsey & Company is going to give me that experience.”Asked for an update on her father’s health, Brittany Bowlen said, “My father is doing OK. Alzheimer’s is a very hard disease. He is the most stoic Alzheimer’s patient. It’s truly inspirational to see how he carries himself with the disease.”She said since getting her master’s degree, “it’s been really awesome to spend more time with him.”Brittany Bowlen’s mother, Annabel Bowlen, recently announced her own Alzheimer’s diagnosis.Pat Bowlen, who has been nominated as a finalist for the Pro Football Hall of Fame, bought the team in 1984. He transferred control of the team to the Pat Bowlen Trust in 2014.The trust is run by team president Joe Ellis, Broncos general counsel Rich Slivka and attorney Mary Kelly.Contenders or pretenders? MNF matchup will prove if Broncos can be for real Good morning, Broncos Country!It goes without saying there is a lot riding on the Broncos-Chiefs game on Monday Night Football.It’s primetime and that’s always the time to shine.Obviously it’s a divisional game, and just from a psychological standpoint, those are big games to win.And the win-loss record among AFC West teams is primo when it comes to important victories (or devastating losses). If the 2-1 Broncos upset the 3-0 Chiefs Courtland Sutton Jersey White , they hold a top spot next to their division rivals, which will be key for any shot at the playoffs this season. Likewise, dropping to 2-2 while KC surges to a 4-0 lead in the conference could prove too much to make up in the end.But those are just numbers, and as just the fourth game of the season, a lot can still change in the rankings.No, the more critical aspect of this game is not so much the outcome as it is the preparation. And I’m not talking about practice; I’m talking about game planning.If they can, Broncos win this no doubt - Mile High Magic and all that.But if they cannot, then this game will send a clear message to future opponents - the Broncos, despite their weapons, can be out-schemed.“Yes, it’s going to be a total team effort. Obviously, our offense has to score points, but also move the ball and burn the clock for us. Defensively, we have to go out there and do our jobs,” Joesph said, adding that the defense has to get quarterback Patrick Mahomes into third downs, something previous opponents have been basically unable to do. “It’s our job to win the first and second down on defense and get off on third down. Offensively, we have to keep drives alive, convert third downs, burn the clock and score points.”He’s right, of course, but how the Broncos are going to do that when the offense has been unable to play a complete game so far with finished drives, no turnovers and no big penalties, and the defense has been unable to stop just about everyone’s passing game Joe Flacco Jersey , it’s easy to question just how well this team can perform on Monday night.We know the Broncos have many of the tools they need to win. The offense truly has depth at “playmaker,” and the defense has a line and group of edge rushers that can get after anybody if unleashed to do so.The key piece missing is a game plan that schemes away from the Broncos’ weaknesses and is aggressive with their strengths - putting players in the best position to play their best games.In their first three games, the Chiefs have outscored their opponents in the first quarter 49-6. Despite a rather weak defense, Kansas City is keeping teams from starting fast. Then it’s scoring fast and generally giving opponents an edge in time of possession. But so far that hasn’t mattered because even as teams begin scoring, Mahomes & Co. keep coming back with scores too.With that in mind, the Broncos can’t start slow by being too conservative and risking three-and-outs or just hoping to long, sustained drives will keep up with a high-octane offense like KC’s.“It’s going to be a challenge to start fast, to play great defense and for our offense to score points,” Joseph acknowledged, adding that keeping an eye on Tyreek Hill for special teams is also required. “In all three phases, it’s going to be a challenge. But again, we’re looking forward to it.”I’ll tell you what I’m looking forward to - a game plan that says it understands the kind of players Broncos have and recognizes the kind of players the Chiefs have. I want to see an aggressive pass rush the entire game. Mahomes is going to score. The best chance Broncos have is to constantly pressure the QB and force him to make some mistakes, so the secondary can take away at least some of the Chiefs’ chances in the red zone. And for gods sake, cover Travis Kelce like a wet blanket. Josey Jewell perhaps???The Broncos offense needs to be equally aggressive and play up-tempo, getting the ball to Phillip Lindsay, Emmanuel Sanders, Demaryius Thomas and Courtland Sutton. What’s riding on this game is not whether the Broncos can win. It’s whether VJ & Co. can scheme how to win.Horse Tracks - docllv’s picks of the dayFormer Bronco, first black starting QB, reflects on changes in game, society | 9news.comMarlin Briscoe, drafted as a cornerback by the Denver Broncos, told the team he'd return home to become a teacher if he couldn't get a tryout at quarterback.The roughing the passer rule is the NFL’s newest self-created crisis – The AthleticClean hits, the kind the league has been urging players to make for years, are now illegal if they involve a quarterback Bradley Chubb Jersey White , and games are suffering as a result.Horse TracksBroncos Film Review: Denver’s loss in BaltimoreReview the key moments from the Broncos' first loss of the year with highlights from NFL Films and analysis from Broncos TV's Phil Milani, Matt Boyer, Steve Atwater and Ray Crockett.The Neutral Zone (Ep. 08): Concentrating on the ChiefsPhil Milani and Aric DiLalla look back on a Week 3 loss to Baltimore (1:02), talk with Bradley Chubb about his first sack (11:30), hear from the Kansas City Star's Brooke Pryor about Patrick Mahomes' fast start (17:06) and preview this week's game against Kansas City (34:59).Not too long ago, the Broncos' newest punter was delivering pizzas and lived with his parents | 9news.comColby Wadman is on the Denver Broncos practice squad.Sub-par start by Marquette King not unnoticed by Vance JosephA familiarity with Broncos special teams coordinator Tom McMahon combined with the struggles of punter Marquette King helped Colby Wadman land on the team’s practice squad Tuesday.Broncos rush defense rising with Chiefs’ Kareem Hunt on deckKareem Hunt returns to Broncos Stadium on Monday night after a breakout rookie season but is still gaining traction in Year 2.Broncos to wear all-navy uniforms vs. Kansas CityThe Broncos will break out their alternate jerseys for the first time in 2018.Film review: Chiefs Justin Houston and Dee Ford against the 49ers - Arrowhead PrideMatt Lane locks himself in The Lab to give us some answers about the Chiefs edge rushersMahomes is adjusting plays and putting teammates in position to succeed - Arrowhead PrideThe performance on Sunday was little more up and down than we’ve seen from Patrick Mahomes so far this season, writes Kent Swanson10 simple ways Denver can bounce back in time to beat the ChiefsThe Broncos can rebound in time to beat the Chiefs in Week 4, but there are some easy fixes that'll have to be made.The Chiefs Week 3 defense: better, but still not great - Arrowhead PrideThe Chiefs defense allowed their lowest point total of the season...but how bad was the performance?A game in the life of Denver Broncos mascot, Thunder | Broncos Special Section | gazette.comWe’ve see it many times before.
