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.

No play really stands out for me this year. Last year, we had more out-of-the-ordinary plays, like the Staley first down, a couple of returns for TDs, plenty of INTs, etc. This year, our kick returns sucked, outside of that one 60 yard return by LaMike that didn't even go for a score. We had far fewer turnovers for scores, I don't remember many spectacular big runs. Our play of the year is more likely gonna be from Crabtree, but I can't think of any off the top of my head.

The play that stands out the most in my mind right now is a small thing. It was a sack Aldon had against the Dolphins. He completely demolished the LT.




Just nasty.

I second this nomination. I loved that play, at the time it got me out of my chair jumping up and down.

Sorry for the bad quality, but it is the only video I could find of this play. This though is my absolute favorite play of the year.

Kaep's 56 yard scamper against GB stands out the most for me.

3rd. It was close between this and the Goldson hit though.

Actually, it really was. Vintage Randy surfaced in that play--his most iconic play since...well, a long time ago!
