    Hard Knocks

    What a dumb ****ing idea.

    Five teams — Washington, Detroit, Oakland, San Francisco and the Giants — cannot refuse to take part in the show this year.

    Hard Knocks reportedly interested in Jets, but Jets aren’t interested

    THIS is exactly what makes the NFL a failure. It is superficial money grab. Something the WWE would do. Even the bad teams don't want to do it (see above).

    Given Patriots quarterback Brian Hoyer‘s recent comments about picking up the Rams offense from similar series, the Jets probably won’t be the only team reluctant to have their moment in the spotlight.

    It must be such a massive distraction. If i owned a team there would be no sum of money i could be offered to agree to put that team on hard knocks.
    All Hail Josh Allen! Savior of the Buffalo Bills!

    Does anybody really watch that show? I like some background stories, and mic'd up moments as much as anybody but I couldn't care less about that schlock.

    I watched it last season, it made me realize how bad a head coach Hue Jackson is.

    I hope it's the Raiders. They would be the most entertaining to watch.

    It's a money grab, but so what? The NFL is nothing more than men getting played to play a game. It has no merit other than entertainment.

    Rather than force teams to do it, why not offer compensatory draft picks or something? Regardless of not wanting the circus in town, it still is an entertaining show.

    TBH I’d probably watch if it were the Bills, but I don’t want it to ever be the Bills because it’s too much of a distraction and it gives other teams too much visibility on our plays and strategies.

    I won't watch the show anyway, but I think the Raiders would be obvious choice for entertainment value with all that is going on there.

    Re: Hard Knocks

    I watch all or nothing on amazon prime every year.
    Best season ever was the first one with the Cardinals. I love Bruce Arians and I my second team is now the Bucs... Is Fitz still under contract there? However I am pretty sure they will go with the other guy. But Fitz starting for Arians would be epic. That would be great post game interviews...

    The Raider are ran by TWO NFL analysts, so it only makes sense.
