2010 HBO Hard Knocks?

We are all waiting for any type of news right about now and its been very slow compared to seasons past, so the other day I seen an old episode of Dallas on Hard Knocks and then I started to wonder about us on the show so here is my question? How do you feel about the Skins being this years team for the Hard Knocks season?

We have alot going on with the New Regime in place. The positions all in the air from QB, RB, TE, WR, O-Line. Our Defense, will it be a 4-3 or 3-4 and what players will fit where?

All of our big name players on the roster and their personalities. Dan Snyder and his infamous past decade.

We are the most profitable team in the league. We have signed huge contracts for big names and have gotten shitty play from most of those player. We also have some players now on the roster with huge upside, are they being coached up or are we in for another year of Snyder ball? Another high profile Coach and GM with big promises about change or will it turn out to be the same ole' same ole'. Wouldn't it be nice to see, how our coaches are doing with our talent and if the pre-madonas have changes their ways.

With that said I feel that it could easily be the best year ever for HBO. But then I question will it give all our secrets away. It would be nice to see how things are being run and who is practicing and who is attached to D.Snyder hip, and has D.S. really let go control of day to day operations.

The teams on the show make the playoffs that season so it kind of like the reverse Madden curse. What are your thoughts on the idea of The Redskins being on the show.

Re: 2010 HBO Hard Knocks?

I'll be the first to say I always watch Hard Knocks on HBO. I think it's a great show. That said, I don't want any part of it for the Redskins. I think it's a distraction. With a new GM, new coach, and new culture, I don't think having Hard Knocks around Ashburn during camp will do anything positive for us. I'm pretty sure Bruce Allen would agree.

Up in the air= The Coaches haven't set in stone who will be starting and who will be here. It is still early so calm down Tiger.

QB- We might draft a QB this year, also with all the drama of trading J.C. and trying to move up in the draft last year. I will say up in the air.

RB- We have to wait and see on who wants it more. CP was a flop last year and we have questionable Larry Johnson.

TE- CC47 I love the guy, but there are times on the Warpath that there are folks asking about trading him because of F.Davis performance last year. F.Davis he hasn't secured a spot yet, but there are some that think CC47 is replaceable which he is not, atleast not in this years draft.

WR- Well we both know there is a dilemma here, who will line up where? S.M89, M.KELLY, M.Mitchell, D.Thomas, should be a our starters but we all as skins fans are unsure if they can step up and be, the go to guy.

Well since you seem to you have inside info on who will be our starters, would you care to share?

Im just asking on my fellow warpathers opinion on how they would feel about us being on HBO's show.

I thought it was going to be the Texans this year? And if not them, the Jets

You are missing out on some great television then.. The behind the scenes stuff with the coaches evaluations, seeing the position coaches dealing with their players, watching the underdog players trying to make the team-good stuff.

Vince Lombardi is legendary for wanting the NFL Films cameras around because he felt like it made his players work harder and his coaches work harder as well because they knew that everything would be on film and broadcast.

I'm not an advocate for 2010 since we're going into our 1st Shana-camp but I wouldn't be opposed in the future.

WR seems pretty set but I agree that it isn't definitive who the starters for the other positions will be.

What if Davis beats out Cooley in camp? I wouldn't say that is impossible. What if Grossman tears it up? The coaches don't have favorites. The best players will start regardless of how much the fans like them or how much they are paid....finally.

Great show but let it be someone else's distraction. Doesn't seem like Bruce Allen's style any way, or Shanahan for that matter.

Re: 2010 HBO Hard Knocks?

The Redskins are among the most difficult, if not the most difficult pro football franchise for the media to work with. They are very, very protective and secretive. I can't see it happening

If it was going to happen it probably would have happened years ago, perhaps when Spurrier was here or something.

Danny didn't want them seeing him on the sidelines during practice haha j/k

We've always kind of been that way right? At least since George Allen.

Ditto.

I really wouldn't want the distractions for the team...especially for Portis...he'd be the most distracted I bet.

If we still had Smoot and ARE...it would be a circus.
