HBO Wants Bengals To Be On Next Hard Knocks

Tuesday, April 28, 2009


Please, please, please let this happen! The Cincy Enquirer, via First Cuts, is reporting that the producers of HBO's Hard Knocks are seriously considering following the Bengals for the show this Summer....

The Bengals are being considered to be the featured team on this year's Hard Knocks:Training Camp series, which is aired on HBO in late July and August. No final decision has been made though by HBO or NFL Films, which produces the series. Both HBO and NFL Films like teams that train away from their home complexes during training camp, which makes the Bengals a fit. Bengals coach Marvin Lewis also has experience with what the series entails. He was the defensive coordinator at Baltimore during the first year the series ran in 2000. There is one factor though that would make this seem like a weird arrangement -- team owner Mike Brown rarely gives interviews anymore (and he would have to be on TV plenty for this series).
What a great idea, HBO! This will bring an entirely new meaning to the term "Hard Knocks", especially when you consider that they just brought in head case Andre Smith into the fold. This better happen!

Oh hell yes. I can't wait to get a firsthand look at how awful Mike Brown is at running an organization.

This would make "Playmakers" look like children's bedtime stories.

PFT is reporting that this is a done deal.

what are the odds a player gets a DUI or another another arrest during training camp? I say it has to be pretty high. In any event, this should be entertaining.
