Broncos record may be bad, but it’s not 1963 bad
DENVER -- After last season's heartbreaking losses, and the Broncos current losing streak, it's easy for fans to become disheartened. But take heart: it could be worse. Much, much worse. Just ask Gene Mingo. He's part of Broncos history. He was on very first Broncos team, he was the very first African-American placekicker in pro football history, and the first person to return a punt for a touchdown in the American Football League. He played seven different positions for the Broncos, and his name is even on the Ring of Fame at Mile High.
