My Top 10 Football Movies Of All Time

LingerContributor INovember 20, 2008

So I finally had a chance to watch "We Are Marshall" and I started thinking of my favourite (yes, I'm Canadian) football movies. 

I also decided to add my favourite quotes from said movie.


1.  The Program (1993)

Chairman (Dan Hannafin): This is not a football vocational school. It's an institute for higher learning. 
Coach Winters (James Caan): Yeah, but when was the last time 80,000 people showed up to watch a kid do a damn chemistry experiment? Why don't you stick the bow-tie up your ass?


2.  Jerry Maguire (1996)

Jerry (Tom Cruise): I will not rest until I have you holding a Coke, wearing your own shoe, playing a Sega game *featuring you*, while singing your own song in a new commercial, *starring you*, broadcast during the Super Bowl, in a game that you are winning, and I will not *sleep* until that happens. I'll give you 15 minutes to call me back.


3.  Brian's Song (1971)

Brian Piccolo (James Caan): Well, on uh, Fake Draw Screen Right I uh, pick up the linebacker if he's comin', 'less of course it's Butkus, then I simply notify the quarterback to send for a preacher.


4.  Remember the Titans (2000)

Coach Yost (Will Patton):  ...shotgun?  Who do they think we are, the New York Jets?


5.  Rudy (1993)

Rudy (Sean Astin):  This entire year's been a waste! I've just blown another year of eligibility!


6.  The Longest Yard (1974)

Police Officer: Why'd you drive her car into the bay?
Paul Crewe (Burt Reynolds): Couldn't find a car wash.


7.  Any Given Sunday (1999)

Kevin Branson (Phil Latzman): Cherubini's down. 
Dr. Harvey Mandrake (James Woods): Cherubini! What, did he fall off the bench?


8.  Friday Night Lights (2004)

Boobie Miles (Derek Luke):  What am I gonna do if I can't play football? I'm not good at nothin'!


9.  Varsity Blues (1999)

Bud Kilmer (Jon Voight): It makes me wonder if you know the different between a sneeze and a wet fart!


10.  The Waterboy (1998)

Lawrence Taylor (as himself): Which brings me to my second point, kids. Don't do crack.
