HBO’s latest season of Hard Knocks premieres on Aug. 11 with the Rams and Chargers sharing the spotlight in Los Angeles. It’s the first time the award-winning series has featured two franchises at the same time, which means there will be twice the action, twice the humor, and twice the football.
With just under three weeks until the debut, what are some things you all are hoping to see on the show? Are there any specific players that you hope they focus on? Any specific parts of training camp that you hope you get a behind-the-scenes look at?
All of these things and more will be pondered for the next ~19 days.
I think first and foremost I’ve got to see more of Aaron Donald working out. That guy is just the most impressive player and everything he is physically capable of while still playing defensive tackle in the NFL is insane. The former personal trainer in me will always be intrigued by athletic marvels and Donald is the epitome of that.
Secondly, give me as much Jalen Ramsey as possible. I’ve been an even bigger fan of his ever since he did that piece in GQ a couple years back where he basically went quarterback by quarterback and either complimented them or ruined their career verbally. It’s was beautiful. Give me all of the Ramsey trash talk.
But I’ll turn this over to you guys. What are you looking forward to seeing this season on Hard Knocks?
