Based on the story of Vince Papale, a 30-year-old bartender from South Philadelphia who overcame long odds to play for the NFL's Philadelphia Eagles in 1976.
In 1976, the words to the Eagles fighting song were "Fight, Eagles, Fight".
What are you doing, old man? This ain't high school!
Dick Vermeil: Hey Banks! That old man just made you look bad. That's a way to finish, Papale!
In the beginning of the movie where the Eagles are at home versus the Bengals, Tommy yells out "Thanks for the 3 wins coach". Later during a bar scene where they are watching Coach Vermeil announce an open tryout, Tommy says " I guess the 4 wins weren't so bad".
