Over at Chase Stuart's site, valued FO reader Shattenjager has a guest post about the NFL coaching career of Marion Campbell. The five-act long read begins with Campbell's apprenticeship under George Allen and (especially) Norm Van Brocklin. It then navigates through his years at the helm of Atlanta and Philadelphia (and Atlanta again), culminating with an answer to the title's question.
If you're a fan of thoughtful forays into NFL history or often wonder -- as I do -- how some head coaches keep getting hired despite all qualifications to the contrary (or you just like supporting your FO brethren), click over and give it a read. God knows we all need a break from the latest iteration of "Police Investigating Aaron Hernandez for Possible Role in _________."

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?
