1) Football Outsiders will be offline tonight from midnight to 1am EDT in order to migrate to our in-season servers. This should solve today's slowness; not getting the migration done before today was a bit of a misstep. UPDATE: That didn't work either, so we'll need to have another outage, Friday morning from 3am to 4am EDT. We've scheduled it for later so everyone can still discuss the Ravens-Broncos game in our open thread after midnight on the East Coast.
2) I was unable to post the 1990 DVOA ratings yesterday as planned due to some family issues. Before I write the commentary for 1990, I need to take care of getting ready for the season, trying to get updated 2013 projections up, and calling our advertising network to yell holy hell at them about that horrible "DOWNLOAD HERE" ad since they won't respond to my e-mails. So 1990 ratings will run this weekend or next week. Thanks.
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?
