Len Pasquarelli checks in with a series of what seem to me rather obvious storylines. Colts' defense is good. Michael Vick gets hurt. Tatum Bell was part of the Bailey-Portis trade. Houston Texans are really bad. The one thing I disagree with, however, is using the 49ers game as a reason to lead with the Colts' defense. They got run over by Kevan Barlow and missed as many tackles as they did against the Patriots last January. Fortunately, Cato June was Alex Smith's second favorite target, and the only one he hit for a touchdown.

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?
