Gregg Easterbrook lambasts the Colts in this week's Tuesday Morning Quarterback. He points out that the Patriots made Peyton Manning constantly audible into anti-blitz plays even though the Pats were never blitzing anyway. He castigates Tony Dungy for punting on 4th-and-1 on the Patriots 49-yard line (I agree). He points out that the Colts played in a two tight end set and then never ran the ball. He does, however, feel the officials missed a few holding calls on the Patriots offensive line. Speaking of other games, TMQ celebrates the Atlanta offensive line, feels the Eagles are too pass-wacky, and points out that when one linebacker rushes the passer in Pittsburgh's 3-4 defense, this is not actually a blitz.

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?
