HBO is no doubt trying to kill the golden goose and at least salvage something from the lockout debacle. Teams were nervous about participating since it was uncertain how long the lockout would last and how rushed season preparation would be.
According to reports, the special will air segments from past “Hard Knocks” seasons with the Baltimore Ravens, Dallas Cowboys, Kansas City Chiefs, Cincinnati Bengals, and New York Jets.
Since the NFL Network just re-aired all these seasons recently, HBO has added some new Easter eggs.
The special will also have recent interviews with “Hard Knocks” popular veterans, outtakes, and a “Where Are They Now?” segment.
It freaked me out to see Minnesota Vikings defensive end Jared Allen in a Chiefs uniform as well as current New Orleans Saints defensive lineman Turk McBride.
The one thing viewers will surely tune in to see is Jets Head Coach Rex Ryan again in full unedited form.
Sorry NFL Network, when Ryan was shown in your broadcast, it sounded like a test for the Emergency Broadcast System since he was bleeped so much. Now let’s go get a #*%@*%$ snack! Sorry, couldn’t help myself.
