Sports Card Blog – Panini NFL Player of the Day Week 2 Winner

The Sports Card Blog – Panini NFL Player of the Day Week 2 was a dramatic week.

I wasn’t aware of how difficult that contest was going to be, and for that, I apologize. I am going to tweak it up a little bit and run a similar contest like this later in the promotion. So the numbers are going to be a little bit low in this contest. Anyway, here is the week 2 leaderboard:

Michael G: 3 points

Shane K: 3 points (guessed closest to Josh Freeman’s actual passing yards)

Weirdmaniac: 3 points

Edwin G: 2 points

Harley Edwards: 2 points

Matt G:  2 points

KJ Lamb: 1 point

Madison V: 1 point

RJ: 1 point

So that makes the Week 2 winner, Shane K! Congratulations! When I receive the box of prizes, which still isn’t here, you will be getting an official Panini NFL Player of the Day football!

Look for the Week 3 contest of this promotion posted on Thursday!

Sports Card Blog – Panini NFL Player of the Day Promotion: Week 2

Week 2 of the Panini NFL Player of the Day promotion is here at Sports Card Blog. Make sure you visit the official NFL Player of the Day website to learn how you can win a day with an NFL player and other cool prizes.

After a great Week 1 contest which came down to the Sunday night game between the Falcons and Eagles, our first winner received a t-shirt and NFL Player of the Day card set. The leaderboards for the big prizes are all updated. I haven’t received the prizes as of right now (very early Thursday morning) but they should be here in the next two days or early next week. But since I know what is in there, I know what I will be giving away this week.

This week’s prize is…well you have to enter the contest first. This week’s contest is called the Offensive Leaders Picks contest. This concept is pretty simple, predict the offensive leaders in all of these stats. Come within a certain amount of the total and receive a bonus point. See? Simple. Let’s get started.

Who passes for the most yards and how many yards? (Come within 20 and receive a bonus point)

Who rushes for the most yards and how many yards? (Come within 15 and receive a bonus point)

Which quarterback rushes for the most yards and how many yards? (Come within 10 and receive a bonus point)

Who has the most receiving yards and how many yards? (Come within 15 and receive a bonus point)

Who has the most receptions and how many receptions? (Guess the exact number and receive a bonus point)

Who kicks the most field goals and how many? (Guess the exact number and receive a bonus point)

Who kicks the longest field goal and how long? (Come within 3 and receive a bonus point)

Tell me your favorite Panini football product for a free bonus point.

Tie Breaker – How many yards does Josh Freeman throw for against the Falcons? If there is a tie, the person closest to the total number of yards will be deemed the winner.

Please make your picks in the comments section below. No editing of your posts, I will be copying them down before the first game on Sunday to prevent this. Again, one entry per household. Every point you score will go towards the big prizes.

Oh, and the prize this week for the week’s top point getter is a….

NFL Player of the Day Football! I don’t know how big these are or what they look like quite yet, but I’ll let you know when I get it in!

 

Sports Card Blog – Panini NFL Player of the Day Week 1 Winner

I’ve tabulated the scores so far for this weekend, and it appears that no one can catch the leader for the week with tonight’s football game between the St. Louis Rams and the New York Giants.

Your week 1 winner is Edwin G. aka Biggie! He narrowly edged out both RJ and Michael G. last night with the great Sunday night football game between the Atlanta Falcons and Philadelphia Eagles as he was the only one of those 3 to pick the Falcons.

Congratulations goes to Edwin G. aka Biggie for the week 1 victory. He will be receiving a Panini NFL Player of the Day t-shirt and a set of Panini NFL Player of the Day trading cards. They will be sent out when my allotment of prizes arrives sometime this week, I believe. Even more valuable, he will receive at least 5 points towards the grand prizes!

Don’t worry if you didn’t win. Everyone who entered will receive at least 1 point toward the grand prize just for participating. If you “Beat the Blogger” this round, you will receive an extra 2 bonus points as well. There will be ample time to catch up over the next 10 weeks! So keep on entering every week!

Look for the Sports Card Blog – Panini NFL Player of the Day Week 2 contest to be posted on Thursday! It will be a little different and will contain a different prize!
