Shane Falco (Keanu Reeves) is a former All-American quarterback who played for Ohio State University and was picked up in the pros by San Diego. He was soon nicknamed "footsteps" for his failure to complete passes and his tendency to dump the ball quickly. His lack of nerves and two concussions led him to quit the game, until the day coach Jimmy McGinty (Gene Hackman) offered him the job as starting quarterback for the Washington Sentinels.
Jimmy McGinty is the former head coach of the Washington Sentinels. Having once led the Sentinals to championship glory, he's called out of retirement by team owner Edward O?Neil (Jack Warden). Now, however, he's got the dubious task of training a team of rag-tag replacement players to win enough consecutive games just to make it to the playoffs. For Shane and his fellow players it's a second chance to prove themselves.
Look out for Rhys Ifans (NOTTING HILL) who plays Gruff, the replacement kicker for the Sentinels and Brooke Langton (THE NET TV series).
