A touch back is when a Kick Return or a Punt Return has landed into the opposing EndZone and is placed on the 20 yard line, or if the opposing team catches the ball in the End Zone and Kneels. A nickle back is a third Corner Back in 3-4 Formations or Cover 2 Formations they are usually their to Cover the Slot Reciever.

Real Difference for example: In all United States High Schools; if football is played, tackle football is played by men, and flag football is played by girls or for fun. In tackle football, the ball carrier needs to be taken to the ground by a tackle. The knee needs to hit the ground, by getting hit to the ground. In touch football, or in the many variations such as one-touch and two-touch, you merely need to touch the ball carrier for him to be "down". In flag football, players wear flags, usually attached to the waist by Velcro. The tackler must pull off the ball carrier's flag thing for him to be "down."

NRL is tackle football, there are kicks in play (start of field) and there are converisons. Touch football requires you to touch a player, no kicks during plays and no converisons.

The i-touch has a touch screen, the i-nano does not.
