The Bucs are Perfect for “Hard Knocks”

After watching Tuesday night’s premiere of “Hard Knocks” on HBO featuring the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, I can’t wait for the rest of the season.

 

It was great to see the Bucs’ training camp through the lenses of NFL Films.  Those people do an outstanding job during football season every year.  There were the tense moments, like Dirk Koetter chewing out Jameis Winston after throwing a pick.  Then, there were the personal, family stories of players like Winston and Gerald McCoy.

 

And then, there were the lighter moments.  I got a chuckle out of Winston answering the question about whether he wanted extra Marriott points if he didn’t let housekeeping into the room.  And then there were the rookies singing in front of the rest of the crowd.  Chris Godwin, Riley Bullough, Antony Auclair – my goodness.  And poor Maurice Fleming and Justin Evans – getting run off stage, with Doug Martin serving as a Gong Show host of sorts.

 

It looks like next week’s episode will focus, in part, on the kicking battle between Roberto Aguayo and Nick Folk.  It will likely also include great shots from the preseason opener in Cincinnati.  I don’t know how the rest of the football universe is enjoying Hard Knocks so far, but I definitely am.
