On Taylor's repeating that "we've got a lot of work to do," we cut out to the field and TV on the Radio's "Wolf Like Me" (the version from the latest album) starts up in the background, unfortunately mixed really softly. I understand this scene has some dialogue, and they didn't want the dialogue and lyrics to clash, but they could have looped the instrumental, bumped up the levels, and given the sixteen ironic-facial-hair-having indie-nerds who recognized the song a little more devil's-horns action.
So, Matt is basically throwing the football like a boob and the coaches are yelling at him. He's waiting way too long to release the ball, and he's throwing interceptions directly at linebackers he says he doesn't see, even though, as the assistant coach screams in his face, "He's bigger'n my front door!" Through all this Coach Taylor has his Man Sunglasses on again, and lordy lordy, is it really happening? So, now I'm saying I actually like a man in Oakleys (or whatever you call 'em)? Okay, so now I'm, what? A Hee-Hawing, cross-dressing, Applebee's-going mix-up? Mmmm, Applebee's. No, totally kidding. Chili's is way better.
Coach Taylor is rapid-firing plays at Matt, all "something something get the gun, got that" and Matt -- what do they say in Texas, "Bless his heart?" -- reaches back to last week and murmurs, "Okay I gotta work on readin' the coverage," before Taylor interrupts him and tells him to "Hit 'em on the breaks! Hit 'em! On! The breaks!" Hut! Matt fumbles the snap and Coach calls him back over. Kyle Chandler is doing some awesome jaw-clenching in this scene, like he called up my mom and got some coaching on how to deliver lines when you are so fed up with the kid you're talking to, you're lucky you aren't levitating above the earth on the wings of your anger. He tells Saracen that he needs to work harder, that he needs to learn the plays, that he needs to know them so well that his children will know them in their DNA. Cut to a wide-angle shot of Kyle Chandler in man-shorts (hee!) (sorry, something about men in shorts, wearing sneakers and socks makes me titter) (hee!) (sorry, the word "titter" makes me titter, too) and Matt against the spectacular green field and blue sky.
