Count me among those that will see the move "Invincible" the almost-true story of a guy who goes to open tryouts and makes the Eagles squad.
I love the underdog story, and when its a football story, all the better.
...Didja know that nearly all NFL teams held open tryouts? I can still remember the Phins tryouts. They'd have 100s of guys who had played at some level - or sometimes never played football at all - coming in to work out. Some of them were maybe halfway to decent, but only a small handful were offered an opportunity to come out to training camp, and none made the the squad.
