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.

I'm not a huge Lion's fan, but the one memorable play that comes to mind is when CJ caught the record breaking pass vs the Falcons. Whole stadium rose to their feet.

Rather, the day Chan Gailey was fired.

Ideally, it would be nice to be able to chose from some game winning plays of some signature wins, but that will have to wait til next year.

Guess it has to be CJ breaking the record.

Calvin Breaking the record was cool, but not the best play of the year. I would say the most exciting play was Titus catching the Hail Mary in the Titans game.

I'm not voting for Young on principle.

I'm not sure what I would pick though. Maybe Bell's 69 yard run? Stafford's naked bootleg rushing TD was pretty cool too, especially with Jim Brandstater somehow calling it right before it happened despite that it's probably the least-used play in our playbook. The Kevin Smith TD that won the home opener was pretty cool given the circumstances, but in retrospect it wasn't exactly an exciting play, just a routine dumpoff to a wide-open Smith.

I don't know, I feel like it's gotta be something Calvin did.

I'll take this one as well. Bright spot in a dismal season.

Its just too bad the play itself was not very exciting but a Lions player break one of Jerry Rice's records is just awesome.

Nothing else really stands out so I'll say CJ's record breaking catch.

I agree. We just don't have anything that sticks out this year.
