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 their game against Phoenix, Clifford Franklin drops an obvious touchdown pass, after which Coach McGinty calls a time out and puts "stick-em" all over Franklin's hands so he can catch the next pass thrown to him. They call the exact same play again, and when they break the huddle, the brief camera shot above the goal post shows them lining up on the ball inside the Phoenix 10 yard line, near the goal line. But when the play starts, they are obviously near mid-field, as Falco lets go of a bomb and Franklin catches it in the end zone. In fact, the camera shot from behind Franklin when he catches the ball shows both teams milling around near mid-field. How did they go from near the goal line back to mid-field between the time they broke the huddle to starting the next play?
Trivia: The movie is supposed to be in Washington D.C. Washington doesn't have a football stadium. The Washington Redskins play 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.
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.
