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.

Has to be one of the Gabbert to Shorts TDs. Probably the 80 yarder against the Colts.

I want to say the catch Cecil made that should have won the Minnesota game, but the 80 yarder didn't leave enough time for the coaching staff to give the game back.

I agree that it should be the 80 yard TD from Gabbert to Shorts.

I thought the Gabbert to Shorts TD vs Minny was better, but I can understand not selecting it because we lost.

The one v Minnesota was the start of a legend.

vs



I still say vs Minny. Much better play and I don't know if it'll really matter that it "didn't win the game"

Initially my mind went to the (good)Texans game. Thinking there had to be a play in there worth the honours. But i can't come up with a single play that stood out above all else.

The Colts Shorts III catch definitely registers tho. As does the one vs Vikings.

but honestly...

It has to be this.

The Jaguars season summed up in a single facial expression. It's perfect.
