Len Pasquarelli seems surprised that no one wants to give former Carolina Panthers cornerback Rashard Anderson another chance. Gee, why not? I mean, just because he hasn't played in the NFL since 2001, wasn't that good when he did play, has tested positive for drugs several times, and just got cut by the Calgary Stampeders, that doesn't mean anything, does it?
I agree with Len that some team ought to sign Vinny Testaverde or Jeff Blake, but I think Jeff George is way past his prime, and Kordell Stewart never had a prime (at least not as a quarterback).
Elsewhere in the Tip Sheet we learn that National Football Scouting ranks Iowa linebacker Chad Greenway and Auburn offensive tackle Marcus McNeill ahead of Matt Leinart on its list of senior prospects, and Blesto calls Miami tackle Eric Winston the top senior. My personal choice for the best prospect in the country is Bowling Green junior quarterback Omar Jacobs.

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?
