    Ah, yes, just who I was looking for. Surely you of all people could help us understand NFL rules.

    Can you explain this whole process for us? Do they use actual currency? How do they determine who calls it in the air? Do they have a coin toss for that?

    Are you joking or are we actually to the point of looking for details of a coin flip? I don't think the teams even care what kind of coin they use, no need to overanalyze this. There is probably some low level NFL representative that flips a coin in front of a low level representative from the Panthers and Dolphins. Probably just a quarter, but who really cares? The NFL representative probably says Panthers are heads and Dolphins are tails or vice versa. He flips the coin and that is that as he moves on to the next coin flip.

    No need to have a coin flip party with friends or take a day off of work for this. This is not televised, because honestly no one really cares about the flip itself, just about the final result. Mel Kiper isn't reviewing tape of the coin's 40 or how high the NFL representative can flip the coin. There is no weather report to see how it might have an impact on the coin in the air.

    I know you are just joking, but I am sure there are some that will take your questions as being serious.

    It was actually kinda serious because of the vBookie evenet that I started. If the Dolphins call say heads in the air and that's the winner, then that option pays out. So what if it isn't a heads/tails coin but rather an AFC/NFC coin. I guess we'll just default AFC to heads. And I hope the results of this coin flip is posted somewhere online.

    Sort of how Miami swept the Bills, finished ahead of them in the standings yet will pick ahead of them in the draft. The idea for the draft is that Miami is worse than the Bills because they had the same record yet did this against an easier schedule. The Bills schedule was tougher which in theory puts them at a disadvantage and makes it harder for them to win games. We know that is not the truth and that the Dolphins are the superior team, so in this case the better team does pick before the worse team.

    The system does appear to have its flaws, but it also has its benefits. Honestly though, head to head should be the first tiebreaker, not SOS. However, since the system worked in Miami's favor this year, I won't complain to much.

    What if the coin lands on its side?

    The results of heads or tails will not be posted, never has been. All that will be announced is which team won the toss.

    Are we interpreting the rules based on opinions or is this the NFL version?

    There's no interpretation, it's there in black and white in the OFFICIAL NFL rulebook at nfl.com but keep whining about it.
