Miami Dolphins' 'Hard Knocks' returns with a bang
"Hard Knocks" is back. And not a moment too soon. After a two-year lockout-induced hiatus, the acclaimed HBO documentary series returned Tuesday night for a seventh season.... "Hard Knocks" is -- without a doubt -- the greatest football program in the history of the television medium. High praise, but there's nothing remotely like it, both in production value and the access it gives NFL fans.
Have enjoyed the previous seasons of HK. Looks like the QB battle will be interesting, (although apparently the Dolphins are trying to trade Matt Moore). My only complaint with the first episode is, too much Chad Johnson. He was on for probably 20 min of the 60 min episode. Need to cut him down to 10 min max. His act is old and tired to me.
I thought the first episode was crap, and I love the series. The problem is that when they pick a mediocre team, like Miami. The coach is boring, the QBs are boring. The only personality they really have is Chad, and as he proved last season, he's not a good football player. I hope something happens soon that makes the stories more compelling, because when this show is good, it's really really good.
Glad to hear I'm not the only one who thought the show was super boring. Chad is not interesting. He's annoying. At one point they showed a guy painting the cement. That pretty much sums up what I thought of it so far.
Add me to the list that thought the first episode was garbage. Other then a little eye candy, it was rather boring. Chad Johnson is extremely annoying now. The Dolphins new head coach is boring. I think it's going to be tough to top the series in 2010 with the New York Jets.
Not that impressed with the episode watching it as I type. How in the hell can you cut a guy (RG) before they even get on the field? At least see what he has to offer? What if the "veteran" doesn't perform as expected? Chad and his wife what a mess.

Happens all the time, I would bet that half the teams in the league did something similar this season or last. A dozen or more guys there are just "camp bodies." Sometimes those players bounce on and off the team or practice squad all season.
I see David Garrard had knee surgery (out 4 weeks) and Rookie Ryan Tannehill was 14 of 21 for 167 yards and a touchdown in the Dophins 1st preseason game. I would like to see his progression through TC to become the starter at QB. Similar to radation exposure, I am nearing my lifetime exposure limit to Chad Johnson, hopefully his screen time will be limited in the future.
