The first episode of HBO’s Hard Knocks was so excellent that I got fairly upset when the final credits started to roll. I cannot wait for next week and I’m sure you all feel the same.
With that in mind, I thought I’d ask all of you what you’d like to see more or less of when Episode 2 airs next Tuesday. It can involve a player/coach, a certain situation like practice or in the weight room, or maybe you just want to see more of the players outside of their football regimen.
Personally, I think there should have been even more conversation between the players while they are on the field during practices. I love seeing all of the other stuff when it came to off the field hobbies, but the magic is truly made when the players are together in their natural habitat.
Other than that, I’d like to see more conversations between Anthony Lynn and Tom Telesco. After seeing these guys at the podium over and over again, it was refreshing to seeing them without their facade for the media. Give me more of that.
