    With mere hours to go before my beloved Eagles take on the Chicago Bears, I got into a discussion with a friend about football movies, and I thought I'd continue the discussion here. I've ranked all the football movies I could think of from best to worst. Let me know of any that I missed, and what your favorites are. (TV movies do NOT count, so no poking fun at me by mentioning The Garbage Picking Field Goal Kicking Philadelphia Phenomenon!!) [​IMG]

    I have to disagree with your list. You put Little Giants at the bottom of your list while you put Necessary Roughness in the middle of the list. What is up with that Scott? Necessary Roughness is nowhere as good as Little Giants. Sure, Litte Giants is a bit corny at times, but it has some nice preformances from Rick Moranis and Al Bundy [​IMG]. Shame on you, Scott.

    That's what happens when your team owner is a film producer!! Yes, it's true: Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie was behind such films as Sweet Heart's Dance, Foxfire (NOT Firefox!), V.I. Warshawski and I Love You to Death.
    Go Eagles!

    I have to disagree with the low ranking of "Remember The Titans" I saw it as just as much of a relationship movie as football. I enjoyed it as much and more than some of the others listed.

    BTW The Bears and gonna clip the wings of the Eagles.
