Hi guys,

Some of you may remember a couple of years ago, I ran an 'Elimination' style tournament which culminated in Footballs Future selecting it's consensus 'Favorite Play Of The Year'

For those that don't remember, here's a link

With the season soon to be over, there's not going to me much to talk about on FF, so hopefully, this tournament can provide some discussion, some competition and provide some great memories, and perhaps show us some great plays that we missed too.

Anyway here's whats going to happen.

a) I will create a thread in each of the 32 NFL team's sub-forums, asking them to nominate a consensus 'Favorite Play' from their team.

b) Once I have collated all 32 sub-forums' nominations I will use a list randomizer to determine which teams will face each other in the tournament.

c) I will then create a thread in NFL General for each match-up, where the FF community can determine which play is their favorite until eventually we end up with 2 remaining plays,

OK, so now that's sorted. Let's get down to the fun part, time for the your sub forum to nominate their favorite play of the 2012 NFL season!

There is literally no criteria for selecting a favorite play. It could be an Offensive, Defensive or Special Teams play, the first play of the game, or the last play of the game or anything in between, it could come in a win, a loss (or a tie) it could be a scoring play, or a non scoring play.

You can select literally anything, in the 2010 tournament there was an OG returning a kick-off 70 yards, a Pick-6 by a Defensive End, Touchdown celebrations or trick plays by Punters. Literally anything!

Ah, there is one rule. You must post a video link (preferably to Youtube (those 30 second adverts on NFL.com are annoying after a while) or even better, post a GIF.

So go ahead guys, nominate your favorite play of the year!

I'll be back in a few days to see if you've come to a concensus nomination, if not, I will start a Run-Off thread between the 2 or 3 most popular selections until we have a winner!

Thanks.

C'mon Cowboys fans, your season wasn't that bad. Wink

Even the Jags have got some good plays nominated.

Was it a catch or wasn't it? Does it even count if it is called back anyway? Don't care in a pretty bumming season that's my vote. Runner up has to be the Carr INT in OT.

That was probably THE play for us. Unimaginable emotion. Despair with a light of hope the breaks into an eruption of cheer only to realize the sad truth that it's all over.

Don't know bout favorite but the one that sums up our season best was Rex's almost TD catch against the Giants.

My favorite play was likely the Carr INT in OT vs Pittsburgh

I'll always remember/associate this season with Dez's almost-game winner. I don't want to nominate it though.

What about that ridiculous sideline grab by Bryant against Philly?

Murray's 40+ yard run against the Giants was pretty awesome.

Mo Claibornes fumble return vs Philly to put the game away was sweet.
