If you ever fly to Denver (DEN), you'll notice that thrust reversers are usually never used.
This is because of 3 basic reasons
1.) The air at one mile high is pretty thin, so the reversers are not very effective. Just waste gas.
2.) Every runway in DEN is 12,000 ft long (with a new 16,000 footer coming soon!
!), so there is more than enough room to slow to taxi speed.
3.) The concourses are usually at the end of the runways (depending on which way you arrive, see pic), so if you stopped halfway down, you'd have to taxi for a while.
Hope this helps!
BTW, come to DEN! It's a great airport!
If you must connect anywhere, DEN is the place!
