Forced into coverage
a tale of a gun-slinging strong armed QB at a big time college programme. When his best friend (who is also the top receiver on the team) is killed, he joins a local TV journalist to investigate who did it, working as a cameraman and sound technician.
THe follow up sequel, Forced out of bounds, looks pretty good too. John Force’s shoulder injury (sustained at the end of Forced into Coverage whilst fighting with the bad guy, Jimmy Leftend, on the flumes at Florida waterpark) means he has to convert to a Wide Receiver. However his maverick attitude and refusal to play by the book starts to cause problems for the team. Particularly as the book he is not playing by happens to be the coaches playbook, which Force believes to contain too few z-out routes. His improvised running lines see him continually forced out of bounds before the first down marker, and the team soon finds itself 0-6. Can Force master the routes, obey his coaches and lead his team to glory? Probably not, but at least he’ll get to kill some people along the way, in what turns out to be the bloodiest season in NCAA history, with 134 fatalities..
Estimated box office takings: 184 million on the first weekend.
The inevitable finale to the triology Forced into the Tight End see’s John Force in his final year of college eligibility and now suffering from conditioning issues causing his weight to balloon. The film disappoints fans of the previous two outings, as it primarily focuses on his descent into an extremely violent swingers club. His route running ability becomes ever more erratic and his use of recreational drugs affects his academic record. He eventually quits football and finds solace in water paintings.
This film is officially disowned by the studio immediately upon it’s release. Leaving the door open for several more NFL sequels in a similar vein to the first films. Beginning with Gale Force Draft.
Such films as the low budget ‘3rd String Punter Force’.
