Is it bad when an eight-year veteran who had four 1,000-yard seasons doesn't know how the preseason works? Well, Chris Collinsworth admits that he's no longer going to pick his Super Bowl winners based solely on preseason performances. It makes you wonder if there's any correlation at all between being a former player and knowledge of the game. I mean honestly, I'll take John Clayton over Sean Salisbury and Ed Werder over Michael Irvin every time. I like Tom Jackson, but after him, I can't think of one former player whose opinion I value.
After three NFL seasons of kicking off from the 35-yard line, what has been the impact on touchbacks, returns, field position, scoring and injuries? Also, is this rule responsible for a record number of big comebacks?
