Continuity mistake: When Nigel, the Welsh place kicker for the Sentinels, sets up to make his first field goal for 65 yards, he is shown in a close-up with his helmet chin-strap buckled properly. The camera cuts away from him to the ball, then back to him where his chin-strap is dangling loose on his helmet, cuts away again to the ball, and finally back to him a third time where his chin-strap is once again buckled properly.
Continuity mistake: In the beginning of the movie, we see Keanu clean the boat and then throw a football under water. The scene changes between different shots and we can see Keanu sometimes standing on the ground and sometimes in midwater (most noteable before he swims to the surface). (00:01:50)Christoph Galuschka
Trivia: The movie is supposed to be in Washington D.C. Starting with the 1997 season, Washington moved from RFK stadium in DC to a stadium in Landover, MD. So the movie was filmed in Baltimore, MD. They used Camden Yards, Orioles stadium, and the stadium where the Ravens play.
Jimmy McGinty: When the Washington Sentinels left the stadium that date, there was no tickertape parade, no endorsement deals for sneakers or soda pop, or breakfast cereal. Just a locker to be cleaned out, and a ride home to catch. But what they didn't know, was that their lives had been changed forever because they had been part of something great. And greatness, no matter how brief, stays with a man. Every athlete dreams of a second chance, these men lived it.
Pat Summerall: That's the second time tonight a Washington player's been knocked out by his own teammate.
John Madden: You know, there's a rule in sports, "Don't do anything great if you can't handle the congratulations."
Pat Summerall: There is?
John Madden: Yep.
Pat Summerall: Players are not supposed to to be fraternizing with the cheerleaders.
John Madden: Yeah, but what are they gonna do, fire him?
Question: When Martel plays with the replacement players, he keeps throwing passes to the opposing team and keeps making his team either miss the ball entirely or gives the ball to another player causing them to be tackled. He then tells O'Neil that he can't play with a team like them. Is he deliberately doing all of this because he wants the replacements to lose? I find it hard to believe that he can't work with the team when it looked very obvious to me that what he was doing was intentional.
