The second round is now in the books, and later today we will vote to decide who advances to the grand finale next week.
But first, here's a look at the updated bracket:
Panthers Best Free Agent Tournament
Bill Polian Division
|1. Jake Delhomme||1. Jake Delhomme||1. Jake Delhomme||???|
|5. Brad Hoover|
|3. Stephen Davis||2. Sam Mills|
|2. Sam Mills||2. Sam Mills|
Marty Hurney Division
|1. John Kasay||1. John Kasay||1. John Kasay||???|
|4. Mike Tolbert
|3. Kevin Greene||2. Wesley Walls|
|2. Wesley Walls||2. Wesley Walls|
It's really no surprise that the final four are the 1 and 2 seeds. I mean, they're 1 and 2 seeds for a reason. These two matchups should be interesting as neither one of them should be foregone conclusions. There are legitimate arguments to be made for all four people left, but only two will be able to advance. (Cue Dramatic Prairie Dog)
Like I said above, the two semi-final matchups will be posted later today (one at 12 p.m. and one at 4 p.m.) for voting. As of this writing, voting will last until Friday evening and the final matchup will be posted on Sunday. The primary reason for doing this is because the NFL Draft will take away most of our attention starting Thursday night, so I'm giving everyone plenty of time to get their votes in.
What do you think of the tournament so far? Sound off with your thoughts in the comment section.
Author's note: A special hat tip goes out to the staff at Cageside Seats who use this tournament format and gave me the idea to try it here at CSR.
