7 Football Movies That Score: Getting Super Bowl Ready!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Football is clearly on the nation’s mind (coincidence that that Draft Day trailer just premiered?) as the Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks prepare to battle in the Super Bowl this Sunday.

Hollywood is no stranger to getting put under the spell of the sport that has become the nation’s most popular. To help get you in the mood for the big game, and beyond, we present 7 football movies that score much more than a touchdown... they get the extra point too!

Many of them are true stories, and that speaks volumes about how the gridiron serves as a metaphor for life for so many.

From the film that makes grown men cry, Rudy, to the one that will clearly have you inspired after sitting down to watch Remember the Titans online, these football movies lift us up and make us want to yell touchdown!

Rudy is as inspirational as any movie can get, much less a football movie. The true story of Rudy, who dreamed of Notre Dame glory, is impeccably captured by star Sean Astin.

Rudy Quotes

We're gonna go inside, we're gonna go outside, inside and outside. We're gonna get 'em on the run, boys, and once we get 'em on the run, we're gonna keep 'em on the run. And then we're gonna go go go go go go and we're not gonna stop 'til we get across that goal line. This is a team they say is... is good. Well, I think we're better than them. They can't lick us, so what do you say, men?

No one, and I mean no one, comes into our house and pushes us around.
