pick me!! pick me!!

 

Soon, the NFL will have to pick a team for its popular "Hard Knocks" show, and this year's decision is way more interesting than years past. This is the first year the NFL will pick a team that qualifies under its formula to do the show if no team volunteers. 

That means it's a great chance for the league to get a marquee team on the annual HBO program, which has had a lot of trouble getting anyone to step up in recent years. Most teams don't want a television crew following it around in training camp.

The speculation over who would be featured on "Hard Knocks" got a spark when Tomm Looney, a radio host on Fox Sports Radio, said the three final candidates have been selected, and they are the Bears, Giants and Steelers. NFL spokesman Greg Aiello, in a message to Bleacher Report's Mike Freeman, said that's "totally inaccurate."

Am I the only one that would love to see the dumpster fire known as the Oakland Raiders on Hard Knocks? I think that it would be really entertaining.

The point is he does not have a choice...

Although I'm sure all of us in this forum would absolutely love it, realistically a Panthers edition of Hard Knocks would probably be kind of boring to the rest of the country (especially with Smitty gone).

    • First, let me say that I pretty much only watch the NBA during the playoffs (or when I'm absolutely bored and channel surfing, which is very very seldom). I am really a fan of players and coaches and not necessarily teams except for the Spurs. That being said, I do support the Hornets as they are a North Carolina team---the "home" team, if you will.  The problem is I don't see any way that they will credibly compete for a championship (because they really haven't come close in franchise history). Gone are the days of Grand Ma Ma and Dell Curry, but even then one would be hard pressed to really believe. Unless they happen to draft a legitimate, and I mean legitimate, superstar that wants to be here, I can't see it. I go from year to year in June saying "Perhaps this is the year," but reality sets in during December.  Well, perhaps this is the year that they at least become credible. Monk was arguably the best pure shooter in the draft. Can he create his own shot---break 'em down and break some ankles to be a legitimate point guard? We will see. Bacon may be underrated. We will see. Does the other Superman in Charlotte have enough juice to make a credible run and get the Hornets over the hump. I don't know.  It's just hard to believe that the Hornets will actually become truly relevant when you look at their history.
    • Also, Greg is counting 20M against the cap over the next two...that's a big amount for a TE, even as great as he is.  This year he has a bit of leverage. Important piece of the passing and now running game. High cap number, and we are trying to free up space to sign the G's. Extremely healthy past.   He's just leaning on DG to extend him, and I think that we likely do....although it's not imperative.
