One of the BEST football and sports films made. I used that speech to inspire my employees in the past.

That whole film was like a real life depiction of the NFL.

Al Pacino - Cus Damato - Tom Landry

Dennis Quaid = Brett Favre
Willie Beaman = Michael Vick/Warren Moon
Lawrence Taylor = Lawrence Taylor
Charlton Heston = Jerry Jones

Oh yah Jerry Maguire is another football flick I was thinking about. Well sort of...

The coach is Denzel, Oppie from SOA is a youngster in the movie. It's fantastic. Then you have Friday Night Lights where Billy Bob Thorton is the coach. That's just a raw look about just how serious football is taken in some areas here in the US and the extreme pressure put on the kids/players. It's also fantastic. There is a TV series with the same title that is also great.

Varsity Blues is an old comedy but it's also fantastic. I think it was Paul Walker's debut? Also the whip creme bikini...
What about Unnecessary Roughness...hah...hah. Invicible is another. I'm going to throw in Lucas too. It was a great film with Corey Haim that did involve football. Charley Sheene and Courtney Thorne Smith were in it too. Sad how all these childhood actors/actresses are gone now.

Marcus Aurelius: Tell me again, Maximus, why are we here?
Maximus: For the glory of the Empire, sire.

Baked, not fried... the healthy choice.
