When I saw Randy Moss pretend to drop his pants after scoring a touchdown, my initial reaction was to laugh. Yeah, it was in bad taste, but if people want something to complain about, maybe it should be that two guys "chest-bumping" in the end zone is an excessive celebration penalty while doing the "fake moon" is apparently OK. And hey, this week Moss stayed on the field until the game was actually over, so he should get some credit for that. (Aaron adds: Also worth reading is Peter King's MMQB on Sideshow Randy.)
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?
