Question: How did Ronnie do what he did to the guy who was about to sack him during the Groveton game? Is that even possible?

Answer: Yes, it is possible. He lowers his body and uses the opposing player's own momentum to flip him over his back. I don't know the official name of it, but I've seen it performed by NHL players and the announcers called it "submarining."

Factual error: Towards the end of the movie when the Titans are playing for the championship, Petie grabs up a fumbled ball and runs with it. When he stands up from being tackled, watching TV back in his hospital room, Gary yells Petie's name and the nurse comes to Gary's room to see if everything is all right. When she opens the door to Gary's hospital room, she opens it into the hallway. There isn't a hospital in the world where the patients door opens into the hallway. They all open inward to the patient's room.

Suggested correction: There are numerous hospitals where the doors open into the hallways. Rush hospital in Chicago is one. Prentice women's hospital is another.

Your suggested correction is invalid. Though there are hospitals where there are numerous storage closet doors that open into the hallway, the "patients room" doors do not open into the hallway... (the key word here is 'patients room' doors.
