      I absolutely love pro football, and look forward to it every fall. I've only seen one football movie because I'm not a movie buff, but maybe I'll check some of these out to stave off those football withdrawals I have after the season.

      "The Longest Yard" left such an impression on me. It was so strange seeing Eddie Albert play a bad guy, but he did it very well. The ending was sweet. I haven't seen many of the other football films. Thanks for the suggestions!

      These are some great football movies. Another good one is Radio. Hey, I need to create a lens about that movie since Radio just lives a few miles from me.
