Hard Knocks: LA Rams

  • Did anyone watch the first episode? I thought it was just okay. Other than the big move to LA, it seems like the show won't have a ton to offer. A lot of boring personalities from what I saw. A lot of Goff obviously, but he was what I expected, boring.

  • Hard Knocks is one of my favorite shows, but I haven't decided yet it I'm going to watch this season. I just can't stand Jeff Fisher.

  • first episode was really boring...Goff did look terrible though but that might of been just for the cameras and the theme of the show.

    Yeah that is how I felt. Honestly, the personalities make the Hard Knocks show. So far, not one great personality. The tank top guy was kind of funny, but nothing great. I enjoyed Aaron Donald playing ping-pong, but everyone else was a big yawn. I'm sure Goff will continue to get a bunch of camera time because he is the #1 pick, but that guy is your prototypical boring QB.

  • Wonder if Snead has added, "where does the sun rise?" to his list of questions for potential #1 overall picks.

  • I wouldn't expect anyone to really enjoy a rival's Hardknocks...

    I wouldn't watch one second of it if Seattle, SF or Arizona were on. Naturally inclined to dislike everything about those teams, so it would be really hard to like it.

    That really has nothing to do with it. Maybe for other people, but I could care less if it is a divisional rival or a team from the AFC South.

    I watched episodes two and three last night. They were pretty good. I enjoyed the little segment on Mike Singletetary, he is someone I would not want to mess with. But overall, the show is lacking a few really interesting personalities.

  • My thoughts on the first few episodes:

    - Jeff Fisher is done. Maybe a cool guy to fish with, but he has no charisma, doesn't inspire confidence, and is just cheesy. He sounds like he's been hit in the head once to many times during his playing career. And of course, his son is an assistant. Marvin Lewis had his stuff together during the Cinci Hard Knock episodes. Fisher looks like a middle school coach.

    - Goff. Yea, he's a rookie, but he looks terrible. He can't beat Keenum out? Yikes.

    - The D-Line coach. The d-line coach is funny as hell and great. He's a former Marine and he cusses every 3 words. I can understand why the Rams have one of the best d-lines in football.

    - Singletary is just bad bad man. He looks like he could light some players up still.

    - The players generally seem like a good bunch of guys. But they are playing for an amateur organization.

  • Fisher is soooooo God damn boring to listen to, he just sounds like a perennial 7-9 season.

    Gregg Williams is quite a charmer, like laloosh said.

    I like Tavon Austin

    William Hayes will probably end up in some obscure location a few years after retirement, doing god knows what.

    Jamon Brown reminds me of myself lol

  • Finally a good episode.

    William Hayes going to the dinosaur museum was hilarious. But I understand where he is coming from lol.

    Their strength and conditioning coach, Rock, seems like such a great and cool guy. He is the first real likable personality that I have gravitated towards. While Tavon and others may be enjoyable, they can also be loud and obnoxious. Rock seems like a genuinely great guy.

    Cuts are always interesting, I actually respect Fisher for how he does it.

    Yeah it's as bad as the Miami year, boring.

    HBO should just do the Bengals every year, cause someone's always getting arrested.

    I do think the Hawks would be great, what with so many personalities, but I understand why the good teams don't want that distraction.

    Agreed. Zero great personalities. Other than maybe William Hayes, everyone they've put the camera has been a yawn-fest. Most interesting guy is their strength coach, Rock. He should have been on it more from the beginning.

    Austin Hill's daughter is adorable as hell though. Easy dude to root for.

  • Goff is unwatchable. Simple immaturity? Displaying zero leadership at this point.

    I suppose he's stuck in a tough spot; a rookie that is also the de facto team leader.

  • Yeah, I suspect Austin Hill doesn't make it, which would be too bad. He seems like a good guy and a good dad.

  • Not that I really relish in 1st round 1st pick busts but...

    Holy jeeze what a ton of draft capital to give up for a 3rd string QB who will seemingly take 2-3 years to become a starter let alone one who could hold the jock of Peyton Manning.

  • I wonder if ten years from now we'll think of Goff/Wentz like Manning/Leaf. Only the Rams took Leaf 1st overall this time.

    The Miami year had the Chad Johnson flameout, which we got to see practically in real time. It made for good television but was a little disturbing at the same time, almost voyeuristic.

    For my money the best season ever was 2010 with the Jets. Rex Ryan was made for a show like Hard Knocks.

    The year they did Atlanta (2014) was amusing. That was Mike Smith's last year as coach and they were so blatantly trying to copy Seattle's approach it was pitiful. Was not the least bit surprised when Atlanta tanked and Smith got the ax after that season.

  • Watched the finale, and it pretty much summed up the entire season....average.

    Not one memorable personality you will remember. Maybe William Hayes.

    The beginning of the episode was interesting when Joyner was thinking about giving up on football.

  • This is the first time I've watched Hard Knocks. I was excited every Wednesday morning to watch it. I loved it.

    But, I only liked it because I like everything about the Rams.

    I could not imagine watching this show about any other team. Woulda been pretty boring to me if it was any other team.

    I agree that there was really nothing too interesting to non-Rams fans.

  • OFF TOPIC: I heard they are doing a second season of All or Nothing - team undeclared to the public though. I would probably watch this regardless of team and hopefully the second season is a little better than the first - but it's interesting to see how players handle the season with it's ups and downs.

    Rumor is we will see Demoff fire Fisher.
