It was really only a matter of time before Chad Pennington gave way to Kellen Clemens, but time has a way of speeding up when your team is 1-7 and the offense just finished putting up three points against a very shaky Bills defense. There is no question that Clemens has a gun, and he looked good in preseason, so there really is no reason for the Jets not to play him at this point. Pennington still has some football left in him, but he is clearly better suited at this point to play a caretaker role on a team with a top defense. It's kind of a sad decline for a player who flashed real brilliance before his career was derailed by injuries.

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?
