As Coach Lambeau Fields (David Koechner) puts together Heartland State's new football team, he and his misfit squad manage to mock every sport movie of the last couple decades. As they hit the field on the way to the championship game, they take on the likes of Rocky, Field of Dreams, Seabiscuit, Blue Crush, Stick It and The Longest Yard among countless others.

It all starts when a voice-in-the-sky tells Coach, "If you build it, he will come" -- that is, the quarterback that will lead The Comebacks to victory. But the team will also need a kicker who can Bend It Like Beckham, an assistant coach with a love for the game and his Radio... or rather iPod; and a little guy with heart whose name sounds a lot like Rudy. Once the team is in place, Coach Fields watches his team forget the Titans under the glaring Friday Night Lights, and leads them all the way to the state championship where they battle a Gridiron Gang of footballers and manage to turn out the biggest Miracle the little Texas town of Plainfolk has seen since that Invincible bartender from Philly tried out for the team and made it. Oh wait. In THE COMEBACKS, he doesn't make it.
