Sports Card Blog – Panini NFL Player of the Day Contest Week 6

Week 6 is here which means we are over halfway through the entire promotion. If you check out the current leaderboard tab at the top of the page, you can see where you stand in the race for the October prizes and the race for the ultimate prize, a Panini Black Box. KJ has been closing in on Michael G over the past few weeks while plenty of others are still in contention.

This week is our first NFL team theme week with a series of guesses about one NFL team with the prize being from that NFL team. This week’s theme is…the Kansas City Chiefs. How much do you know about the Kansas City Chiefs that will translate to points this week?

The prize? A giant Matt Cassell bobblehead.

Points will be scored this week in numerous ways so make accurate predictions and you could have a ton of points.

How many points will the Kansas City Chiefs score this week? (2 points for bullseye, 1 point for within 4 points)

How many yards will Matt Cassell throw for this week? (4 points for bullseye, 3 points for within 15, 2 points for within 25, 1 point for within 50)

How many yards will Thomas Jones run for this week? (4 points for bullseye, 3 points for within 10, 2 points for within 20, 1 point for within 30)

How many yards will Dwayne Bowe receive for this week? (4 points for bullseye, 3 points for within 10, 2 points for within 20, 1 point for within 30)

How many field goals will Ryan Succop kick this week? (2 points for bullseye, 1 point for within 1)

How many tackles for Derrick Johnson this week? (3 points for bullseye, 2 points for within 2, 1 point for within 4)

How many points will the Chiefs give up this week? (2 points for bullseye, 1 point for within 5 points)

Tie-Breaker: How many pass attempts will Matt Cassell have in this game?

As stated, the winner will receive a nice big Matt Cassell bobblehead. Seriously, the thing is like a foot tall or more and the head is ginormous.

Please make your picks in the comments section and good luck! I’m not sure if this will be a tough one or not…and make sure you click on the links to the official NFL Player of the Day website to learn more about the promotion and so Panini knows you are interested in this promotion!

Sports Card Blog – Panini NFL Player of the Day Week 5 Winner

Week 5 was full of a ton of points for just about everyone involved so it was a good week for your chance to get back into things for the month and for the overall contest. With all the points, there will definitely be some moving around on the overall leaderboard.

But here are the Week 5 standings:

KJ L. – 13

Madison V. – 12

Michael G. – 11

Matt G. – 11

Eric S. – 10

Harley E. – 9

Shane K. – 9

Jay R. – 9

Edwin G. – 8

RJ R. – 7

Weirdmaniac – 7

I believe that makes two weeks in a row for KJ? Wow, congratulations once again for the win and our first two-time weekly winner. I thought this would be kind of difficult but there were a lot of big time numbers this week so it looks like I have to make things harder next weekend. I already have next week planned out with a little bit of a theme week featuring one NFL team and the prize will be a player on that featured NFL team as well.

The leaderboards will be updated later, so a big congrats again to KJ and make sure you check the updated leaderboards tomorrow and make sure you visit the official NFL Player of the Day website for more information!


Sports Card Blog – Panini NFL Player of the Day Update

The goods are in for the Sports Card Blog – Panini NFL Player of the Day contests!

A big box of goodies arrived at my front door last night with all the great prizes I will be giving away. With that, I decided to change things up a little bit as far as how the contest works. I want to give everyone a chance to win at least something “big” so I’m going to divide the prizes over the three month period and have a final prize. The prize structure will look like this for the big prizes:

September Monthly winner – Autographed mini-helmet
October Monthly winner – Box of Panini NFL stickers and jumbo Jordan Todman autograph
November Monthly winner – Hobby box of Panini Threads football
Combined points over all 3 months winner – Panini Black Box

I think this way gives everyone the chance to win one of the big prizes no matter when you started joining the contests.

So saying that, we will consider the September monthly winner the current leader of the standings, who is Michael G! He will be receiving the autographed mini helmet! Congratulations to Michael G!

The points will carry over towards the Black Box grand prize, however, the monthly standings will be reset for the rest of October. That gives everyone a blank slate for this month’s prize which starts this Sunday with these Week 4 entries and goes until the last game in October.

I still have some more great stuff to give away including a bobble head, pennants, more t-shirts, and tons of cards! So stay tuned all October and November!

So this is how things will be run. The promotion will run from today, September 15, 2011, until November 30, 2011. So this promotion will run from Week 2 of the NFL season until Week 12.
