HBO will be hard pressed to find an NFL team to do "Hard Knocks" series

Other teams were in the mix as well to be featured and a new idea was pitched.  A possibility of  a split “Hard Knocks” season between the Baltimore Ravens and the San Francisco 49ers featuring their head coaches, and brothers, John and Jim Harbaugh.

But even that little gem has faded and one team keeps popping up over and over again, the Jacksonville Jaguars.  Not to put down on the Jaguars, but the last time they were featured, the ratings weren’t that great.

If a team isn’t found by June 1, HBO will have one of two choices:  extend the deadline or simply scrap the season or possibly the series itself.  The second option would be a real shame in my opinion.

I’ve always, as any football fan does, relished the show and anything similar to it for the simple fact of getting to see what it’s really like.  The opening of training camp, the nervous rookies, the cocky veterans, and the heartbreaking footage of seeing a player being cut.

Much like what draws people in is the realism involved in the show.  People finally got to experience what happens between one gameday to the next and the inner workings of the front office of a franchise.

    HBO don’t know team want to be recorded you guys cannot be trusted everybody talked about the Saints and how NFL commissioner Roger Goodell should do away with the Saints. How they all done put they foot in they mouths all 31 teams are afriad of Roger Goodell as long as the New Orleans Saints neck were in the noose all the people’s were happy. When all 31 teams just needed to stand up for the Saints when they know all teams play the same kind of games pay-to-performance you can’t hurt one team without the others in the same boat. In 2012 season the eyes not going to be on the Saints Goodell eyes going to be on someone else Saints can walk around with they chest out and head up because the laughter going to be on someone else but remember you guys said Goodell is doing the right thing to the Saints. So you 31 teams watch the hangman one of you guys might be next.
