I wish I could be in a better, more positive mood this morning, but that’s just not going to be the case until the gravity of the Derwin James news comes and goes. We should be celebrating the premiere of tonight’s Hard Knocks episode, and that alone. Unfortunately, everything is simply going to have a little dark cloud hanging over it until the season gets here, and then maybe even longer than that.
But a new episode tonight is still a great thing to look forward to. Without football Sundays currently going on, Tuesdays have taken that spot for now as the one thing I get excited about during a new week.
In tonight’s episode, it’s unlikely they were able to squeeze any of the James injury into the show, but that’s probably for the best. I’d rather lean into the last bit of goodness from training camp before dealing with the frustrating reality once again.
