If you read Audibles this week, you saw a conversation about the San Francisco 49ers and how they used 'wham' blocking techniques to neutralize Ndamukong Suh. Chris Brown of SmartFootball.com has done an excellent write-up of one of those plays for Grantland, with screen caps and diagrams showing how the 49ers set up and executed the play, and how Frank Gore was able to take advantage of it.

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?
