HBO has a show called “Hard Knocks” which takes you inside NFL team’s locker rooms and practices as they prepare for the upcoming season. It was announced that the Cincinnati Bengals will appear on this year’s Hard Knocks.
The Bengals were last on Hard Knocks in 2009, when Carson Palmer was still a threat in the NFL, Chad Ochocinco wasn’t in trouble with the boys in blue, and Chris Henry, God rest his soul, was still alive.
Hard Knocks has seemed to lead the team they’re covering to success. In 2009 the Bengals were a surprise team of the NFL, they weren’t expected to win many games, but ended up going 10-6 and winning the AFC North.
Even though the Bengals have had success since Andy Dalton and AJ Green came to Cincinnati, they don’t get much attention. Andy Dalton is one of the best young quarterbacks in the NFL, but a lot of people forget about him because they’re all taking about Andrew Luck, Cam Newton, and RG3. Perhaps Hard Knocks will give Andy Dalton some more well-deserved publicity.
The time and dates for the series of shows to start should be announced by HBO within the next week.
