Look, kids, Cleveland has a head coach! It's former Bills and Jets defensive coordinator Mike Pettine. Pettine helped take the Bills defense from 27th in DVOA in 2012 to fourth in 2013, and the Cleveland defensive personnel would seem to be a great fit for Pettine's aggressive hybrid 3-4/4-3 defense. Barkevious Mingo is going to go nuts. Whether Pettine has the CEO-like skills required of a head coach, and whether he can hire a useful offensive coordinator, I have no clue.

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?
