A new season means a new chance at glory, that is if all hope isn't lost on day one, with team president Kristy Fullbright engaging in some extracurricular activities with the Bulls' brand new starting quarterback.
Zagreb is caught and identified as the snitch who sold revealing information about, and pictures of, the Bulls to the media. Bubba and Jethro may want to join, however, once they discover that a reporter is willing to pay $50,000 for shots of Kristy and Mac's wedding.
The team falls under a wave of injury spells, with Dr. Death neglecting a potentially serious neck injury and Bubba mistaking a concussion for a terminal illness. Confusion and mistakes abound when Dr. Death mistakenly perceives a rookie's offer to help as him attempting to steal the doctor's job, and Bubba mistakes his wife's dog's prognosis for his own.
The Bulls team becomes trapped in a hostage situation at Bubba and Jethro's bar when armed robbers hold everyone against their will, alleging to free the roster and their guests of their captivity in exchange for one million dollars. With everyone's lives on the line and the future of the bar in jeopardy, nobody can predict what comes next for the Bulls.
T.D. is extended an offer that he can't refuse, a position as the president of the Bulls' Texan opponent, spotlighting his loyalty and forcing him to question his destiny. Separately, the shady equipment manager attempts to get between Jethro and Bubba with intent to commandeer their bar and profits.
Tombstone Packer has a fascination with aliens, a recurring distraction that has begun inconveniencing coaches, cracking up players, and hindering Packer's preparation for the playoffs. After Dr. Death reveals it was all an elaborate prank, Packer is initially reluctant to believe it, until he decides it's better getting even than getting mad.
