**How a rec center in Denver came to embody Pat Bowlen’s three-plus decades as the Broncos’ owner** (Nicki Jhabvala, The Athletic)
Since August 2003, when Bowlen stood outside the refurbished recreation center and cut a ribbon to announce its opening, the Broncos Boys & Girls Club has stood alone as the only such club fully funded by a U.S professional sports team. While many organizations and athletes sponsor local clubs or regularly donate to its programming, none are involved to the degree of the Broncos.
**Q&A with Broncos CB Chris Harris: Looking forward to “breath of fresh air” with new staff** (Ryan O'Halloran, The Denver Post)
"I think we've still got the pieces (to compete). I see Elway making a big splash in free agency this year and getting some talent. If we find the right guys that can play together, we can definitely win."
**New Broncos offensive coordinator aims to go back to old, reliable scheme** (Jeff Legwold, ESPN)
Scangarello knows what he's getting into. The Broncos have used four starting quarterbacks the past two seasons, and they have finished 24th and tied for 26th in scoring in those two seasons. The passing game has been particularly troublesome, even as the Broncos have successfully run the ball.
**It’s a blasted shame Broncos safety Steve Atwater isn’t already in the Pro Football Hall of Fame** (Mark Kiszla, The Denver Post)
The real MVP of Super Bowl XXXII was Atwater. That's right. The Smiling Assassin killed the Packers. While nobody can forget the "helicopter run" by John Elway, and there's no denying the importance of the three touchdowns Davis scored, it was Atwater who made the play that best illustrated why the Broncos shocked Green Bay, which entered the game as a prohibitive 11-point favorite.
