Each year the hall considers candidates for its contributor category. This year Bobby Beathard, a general manager for many different teams, was announced as the choice for the category.

Within minutes of the hall sending out a tweet about the news, Broncos fans responded with comments like An absolute disgrace that Pat Bowlen was not selected. It shouldn’t have even been close (Mike Middleton) and How can you continue to deny Mr Bowlen’s rightful spot in Canton. His impact & success over the decades can’t be ignored (AK).

Bowlen oversaw team operations for the Broncos for 30 years before Alzheimer’s Disease forced him to step back. He and his family still own the team but it is run by President Joe Ellis and General Manager John Elway. During his tenure as an active owner, Bowlen helped shape the future of professional football as a member of the NFL’s most powerful committees.

Bears Great Brian Urlacher Should Be Next For Hall Of Fame

By Chris Emma— (CBS) The arrival of Brian Urlacher in Chicago in 2000 marked the beginning of a memorable era for the Bears organization. A defensive identity was restored, led by the next great linebacker for the franchise. Urlacher’s remarkable 13-year career saw just one uniform and the second Super Bowl appearance in Bears franchise history. He made eight Pro Bowls — only Mike Singletary and Walter Payton made more in franchise history — and solidified his place as one of the game’s greatest linebackers of all time. Next year, Urlacher should receive the ultimate individual honor with an induction to the Pro Football Hall of Fame. It seems all but certain that Urlacher should be a first-ballot inductee to the Hall of Fame, joining two other greats of his era in Ray Lewis and Randy Moss as sure picks for Canton. This weekend, the 2017 class included first-ballot picks Jason Taylor and LaDainian Tomlinson in a seven-man group. Individual achievements are all over Urlacher’s resume, but what most defined his greatness was the leadership of that Bears defense. Urlacher was the most indispensable figure in Lovie Smith’s “Tampa 2” defense, an imposing figure at middle linebacker who directed the unit. He  was a force in the heart of the defense in the run game and just as impressive in coverage, recording 22 interceptions during his career.  The Bears reached the playoffs four times in Urlacher’s tenure in Chicago, with many wins spurred by that defense. Two of Urlacher’s teammates on those defenses could potentially be Hall of Fame members down the road in linebacker Lance Briggs and cornerback Charles Tillman, both of whom were instrumental parts to the success. With the 2017 Hall of Fame class now immortalized in Canton, we can look ahead. Bears fans should be able to make their plans for late next summer to go remember the career of Urlacher, a man so important to an era in Chicago’s football history. Voting for the 2018 class will be unveiled next February. Chris Emma covers the Bears, Chicago’s sports scene and more for CBSChicago.com. Follow him on Twitter @CEmma670 and like his Facebook page.

It all almost didn’t happen, though. Davis was so low on the depth chart in 1995, and had little chance of making the team, that he almost walked out ahead of the Broncos exhibition game against the San Francisco 49ers in Tokyo.

“Let’s just say if I spoke better Japanese I wouldn’t be here,” Davis told the Associated Press. “I’m telling you, I was this close to walking out of there because I looked at everything around me and I just had no shot of making the team. I was a sixth-round draft pick, I was seventh on the depth chart, I wasn’t getting any reps in practice, I had my coach constantly on me. And it just didn’t feel like there was any way of me making the team.” PHOTO GALLERY: Terrell Davis: Hall Of Fame NFL Career One big hit on special teams, though, changed all of that, and launched a special career unlike any other.

While his career may have been short, Davis is the only running back to win back-to-back Super Bowl titles, an MVP trophy, a Super Bowl MVP honor, a 2,000-yard season, and seven consecutive playoff wins in which he ran for 100 yards or more.

Davis was selected as a Hall of Fame inductee in February after several years of eligibility. The moment he learned he got the call to the Hall was priceless, as a Davis and a room full of family and friends couldn’t stop cheering.
The honors of who will present Davis go to his agent Neil Schwartz.
“I chose him, really for a simple reason, before I got drafted, before I signed an agent out of the University of Georgia, we met in a diner in New York, and we had this long talk,” Davis said. “It was probably around 8 o’clock in the evening. We shut the diner down around three in the morning. We had a very candid conversation. It was very honest, very open. When we left that diner, he looked at me and said, ‘I want you to promise me one thing.” And I said, ‘What is that?’ He said, ‘When you make it to Canton, I want to present you.’ I said, ‘Wow.” And so I took that as this man having all the confidence in the world in me, and I hadn’t even played a down in the NFL. I said ‘OK, when it happens I’ll let you present me.’ So now he’s presenting me.” RELATED: Terrell Davis Poses For Hall Of Fame Bust Alongside Davis on Saturday, kicker Morten Andersen, safety Kenny Easley, owner Jerry Jones, defensive end Jason Taylor, running back LaDainian Tomlinson, and quarterback Kurt Warner will also be inducted.
