Joe Ellis on Pat Bowlen

“For the organization it was just great to know that you had somebody that passionate, that competitive and that engaged in the business. Pat loved to point out that he was here every day. Every day he was here. It’s true. If he wasn’t here you were on the phone with him every day … Just to learn about the league through him over the years and watch his influence at work, I think a lot of people in the organization saw that and understood that. It felt good to have an owner that you worked for that provided so much and was quite frankly powerful within the National Football League. You felt like your franchise was noteworthy and you were working for a great organization.”
– President/CEO Joe Ellis
