The HARD KNOCKS Team Is Still Up For Grabs but the NOLA Saints Thinks It’s Them

NBC Sports’ Pro Football Talk says they overheard the notion that the New Orleans Saints think they are the targeted team to star in HBO’s training camp series HARD KNOCKS this coming season. The site states – Per a league source, the Saints are bracing for the possibility of the league tapping them on the shoulder and directing them to be the subject of the annual Hard Knocks series. Well, that certainly could be the case as the ball club does meet the criteria, but they also could be paranoid.

Talking HBO’s HARD KNOCKS 2016 Already

That is correct, we now can begin to speculate on just which team, out of a guaranteed list of nine are eligible for inclusion this August to appear on HARD KNOCKS, the show no one want the lead role in. Remember a team that has either appeared on HARD KNOCKS already, made it into a Playoff game in the last two years or is under new coaching that year is safe from the invasion of cameras and the scrutiny of all during Training Camp prior to the 2016 season of play. Straight from Reddit.com we have the teams under the gun. Keep in mind any one of these teams can volunteer to be the focus, as the Atlanta Falcons did in 2014, or be chosen, as...

A bit of a shake up over the back half of the year at HBO Sports makes us curious for the evolution of that division of the company, but then again the network is full of changes going into 2016. It started in July with Bill Simmons (pictured right) coming on board.

Topical and spontaneous, the show will feature stories and guests...

Hard Knocks: What to Expect from the Tenacious Texans

Hard Knocks: What to Expect from the Tenacious Texans

This past Saturday, I heard someone at the Tennessee Titans scrimmage say that we were “gonna stop that guy this season” in a situation where Titans 1st round draft pick and Heisman winner Marcus Mariota was nearly sacked. My guffaw and subsequent groans around stopping “that guy” caught the attention of a fellow fan who agreed with me. See, “that guy” is JJ Watt, a one-man offense destroying, pick your throw and slam it into your face, switch sides and scores touchdowns just ’cause, ruin your day, call your mama to take your beaten butt home, defensive end for the Houston Texans. Joining him this...
