This weekend the running games took over from the passing games (hope that made you happy, Al) but we'll do Snap Judgment anyway. This week we look at Peyton Manning's inability to beat the Patriots, how the Eagles can stop Michael Vick, and what in the heck was wrong with Ben Roethlisberger. Also, the Football Outsiders QB ratings, featuring special guest stars the Football Outsiders RB ratings. I hope that my statements in Snap Judgment get across my feelings about the whole question of whether Sunday's game proves that "Tom Brady is better than Peyton Manning." I could probably write a book about this, but I'm under the weather again. Why do I keep getting sick on Mondays?
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?
