View Full Version : Movies and TV Dolphins will be on Hard Knocks

After several teams declined to appear and many questions about why any team would want to do it, we finally know who will appear on this summer’s installment of Hard Knocks: The Miami Dolphins.

The Dolphins announced today that they have agreed to appear on the HBO series that chronicles one NFL team’s training camp. The show will air weekly, beginning on Tuesday, August 7.

From a business perspective, the move makes sense: As local interest in the team has waned, Dolphins owner Stephen Ross has made clear that he wants his team to generate more buzz. The team that appears on Hard Knocks is always one of the most-discussed teams in the NFL in August.

And from a storytelling perspective, the producers of Hard Knocks will find plenty of storylines to explore, such as new coach Joe Philbin running a training camp for the first time and a three-man quarterback competition featuring incumbent Matt Moore, first-round draft pick Ryan Tannehill and free agent signing David Garrard all in the mix.

The biggest question, however, is whether the Dolphins are interesting enough for many football fans to care about their training camp. Coming off three straight losing seasons, the Dolphins aren’t one of the league’s marquee teams. That makes this announcement something of a surprise.

Yeah that was good.
I'd like to see them this year. I guess we'll see the Jets season courtesy of Tebow's personal Hard Knocks crew called ESPN.

What a boring team to cover.
Agreed. I imagine Hard Knocks fans weren't exactly brimming with excitement when the Chiefs were on, but that team with Herm, Jared Allen, and all the other camp scrub fuckery actually made for some pretty good TV from the perspective of non-Chiefs fans.

The Dolphins have a boring head coach. They have no names scattered on offense apart from Reggie Bush. And their defense is shit. Nobody knows anything about them. And I don't they're going to even want to get to know them. Unless some of them are giant assholes on camera, no thank you.

There is going to be a lot of second guessing just like here in KC on how they looked like a total joke in the Manning sweepstakes. The sting of that is lessened with the acquisition of Tannehill. It will be interesting to see how much pressure will be there to start him from day one. Despite the fact they've been bad, this is one of the most interesting stories in the league. I'm glad the Jets didn't get it. There's enough Tebow man love going on.

There's only going to be one storyline the entire time: Tannehill.

There's nothing else in Miami to be interested in.

I updated your comment... my guess is that there will be a strong focus on her and she'll likely get a reality gig out of this one.

You knew Chad Johnson would be the star of the show, and he didn't disappoint. I don't remember him cussing at all when he was with the Bengals a few years ago on Hard Knocks. I remember being surprised by it. And yes, Dolphin cheerleaders were a highlight.

I would think it would be such a distraction because you have these cameras on you pimping for drama and everyone wants their 15min of fame to last forever and if I am GM no way in hell. I want total FOCUS:thumb:

What remarkable luck that the cameras happened to be following around an undrafted nobody who got cut before camp even started.

They're not even trying. Next episode, Chad Johnson happens to bump into Snooki and hilarity ensues.

Dolphins receiver Chad Johnson was allegedly arrested on domestic violence charges Saturday night. We're hunting down a police report.

However, I'm surprised that Mrs. Tannenhill hasn't been brought up yet.

Finale thoughts.

Seeing the Garrard workout, I'm still on the bus. He's gonna be a starter in the league, and people are going to be buzzing. Don't know the timeline, but it's gonna come.

Has Hard Knocks ever pimped a dropped player's individual workouts as hard as they pimped Chad Johnson's?

Jorvorski Moore knocked Smith the FUCK OUT!!

On the show Garrard was tossing the ball into a net at like half speed, and then the Dolphins still cut his ass despite having just a clusterfuck team. The good news is if they end up with the first pick next year they'll probably trade out since they drafted a QB in the first this year. Matt Barkley RGIII trade?
