This really does have to be one of the best American Football movies out there. Denzel is just fantastic as Coach Boone. He really did show all of the emotions that the coach would have went through so well throughout the movie. How hard he was on the players, being sick before the first game after finding out he would loose his job if he lost a game, how he used humour and how he battled against the racism. He really was the perfect choice for this role, having the authority in him and being able to just own the screen.
