Default Hard Knocks - Miami Dolphins (WARNING: Thread contains pictures of attractive women!)

Anybody watching this?

I still think it's great television. I'd both love and hate it to be about the Broncos, someday.

Thoughts about the first episode?

-Jeff Ireland is so not likable. And every time he speaks, I picture him saying, "So, tell me about your mom being a prostitute."

-Every scene with Chad Johnson is painful, knowing what's on the horizon for him. But it's high on the unintentional comedy scale. He's a complete train wreck!

-I have to wonder if Braylon Edwards wasn't signed because he didn't remember having met Jeff Ireland during his draft interviews, and Jeff Ireland was offended. And then, Ireland asked him to name someone in his past that would have really positive things to say about him, and Edwards said Rex Ryan. Ireland smugly replied, "Well, I'm not calling Rex Ryan." You get the sense that Ireland SO wants to be a guy of whom people say, "That Jeff Ireland - he's a big personality; but I respect him." What people who meet him most commonly seem to say is, "That Jeff Ireland - he's a little man with a big ego; he's failed so wholeheartedly with the Dolphins, he must have pictures of someone; and the only way I'm going to have any interaction with him is if I have literally no other options." I bet he would win the "least respected person in the NFL" award, by a long shot. And when you're in a league with Mike Brown of the Bengals, that's saying something.

-Les Brown, the TE prospect, is a great story. He was highly recruited out of HS, and played mediocre basketball at a small college here in Salt Lake City. Then, he showed up at BYU's pro day (his brother was a BYU OL), and put up crazy numbers. But, as you might expect, he sucks at important things, like blocking. But, he's coachable, and he wants to learn. And, he had several invitations to pro training camps. So, he might not pass waivers, if the Dolphins tried to stick him on their practice squad.. Like I said, he's a great story. Throw in the fact that his wife/girlfriend had a small cameo in the first episode, and she seemed crazy hot, and - well, like I said, he's a great story. Here's a small screencap of his wife (you have to see the scene to understand her potential hotness):


-Eric Steinbach, after his workout for the Dolphins: "Man, now what I need is a hot tub, and a cigarette!" You don't hear about athletes smoking. I wonder how many of them do. Has anyone witnessed any Broncos smoking - in interviews, in person, or whatever? It seems like a bad idea, if you want to be a professional athlete. But a lot of professional athletes take part in activities that seem like bad ideas.

-Ryan Tannenhill's wife needs her own show. I'd probably watch, just to hear what she had to say about football, the presidential elections, cooking, the process of paint drying, etc.

I'm going to be one of the early "pointy elbows" guys on Tannehill's wife. She's well-coiffed and all, and not fat.

But she's not all that. Kind of a goober. Like a doofus, if there is such thing as a girl doofus. There's like a really average looking girl hiding behind all that well-coiffedness.

And average is okay.

Ugh, wish the Rams, Jets, Raiders, Chiefs, Chargers, Ravens, 49ers, Bears, Titans, Bills, Colts, Giants, Saints, or Texans wouldve stepped up and done it. So freaking boring.

Saints and Jets would be so good I wouldn't even record it and watch it later. Would be on my ass at 8 every Tuesday like clockwork.

Wish Hard Knocks was something these teams WANTED to do, and HBO would get its pick of which team it would do each year.

I saw the first episode, loved it. Really looking forward to seeing the "Chad Johnson getting cut" process/behind the scenes/etc.

Can't wait until the Broncos do it, and yes it will happen someday.

I have no interested in the Dolphins, yet I'm still glued to the screen when this is on. It's the best TV show of all time.

A girl doofus that is hot is a great thing. That means she is down to earth and quirky, real turn ons.

Yeah, she's totally epic wife material.

But no so much up to the way she's being talked about.

Man, I love this show. And I can't believe I would say it, but I actually felt bad for Chad Johnson. He's created all his own problems. But he just seems like an out-of-control, messed-up guy. And I can't imagine someone wanting him on their team. I'm sure it will happen, but I wouldn't want him.

Thought I had read somewhere that Tom Jackson use to make an equipment guy hold his pack of cigarettes, and would take drags during practice.
