As this MNF feature points out, Frank Gore's high yards per carry average this year is pretty remarkable given the poor quality of San Francisco's run blocking. This column helps introduce our new terminology for some of the offensive line stats. What was called "10+ Yards" will now be called "Open Field Yards," and the yards from 5-10 are going to be called "Second Level Yards." Look for those changes on the OL and DL stats sheets this Tuesday.

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?
