The Cowboys are about to screw up…BIG TIME.
Tomorrow the club will have a press conference to announce that HBO and NFL Films get another shot at reality TV with America’s Team.
Hard Knocks is the NFL’s attempt at trying to “go behind” the scenes at training camp.
That’s it Jerry Jones, make it a big circus again. This is the type of move that will sink the 2008 season. Name a team that has won a championship doing this?
The Cowboys looked like slappies in 2002 when they did Hard Knocks in San Antonio.
Jerry Jones was on TV cutting players. Dave Campo looked silly playing with Shamu at Sea World and rookie wide receiver Randal Williams never lived down a comment from his mother in which she described reasons why she didn’t want him running on the streets of New York City as a boy, one was “he could be gay”.
Then quarterback Chad Hutchinson was playing his guitar with teammate Richmond Flowers in their room. Both guys looked corny and proved they couldn’t play a lick.
After going 5-11 some players felt teammates were “acting” for the camera. That alone is a reason to tell NFL Films and HBO “no thanks”.
profootballtalk.com says, “Storylines the show is likely to focus on for this year’s version of the show include the hands-on approach of owner Jerry Jones, how rookie running back Felix Jones adjusts to his first camp, restricted free agent running back Marion Barber’s contract negotiations and the relationship between wide receiverTerrell Owens and quarterback Tony Romo.”
I don’t see how head coach Wade Phillips will look good in this. Campo looked for Boo Boo the fool in the 2002 series.
Does quarterback Tony Romo need anymore cameras in his face? Does Pacman Jones need to have camera following him to the Spearmint Rhino strip club in Oxnard after practice?
I had high hopes for this group, not anymore.
