    Hard Knocks

    If you have HBO and like pro football, then you'd be doing yourself a favor by watching this series.

    It follows the NY Jets through this years training camp. Right away you know it isn't the G-rated NFL films when you see coach Rex Ryan drop about five F-bombs during a team meeting.

    It's riveting stuff. You follow all the rookies and guys not on a contract and watch them battle their hearts out only to get cut. They show everything.

    I could go on, but just watch it. It's my new favorite show on TV.

    Agree that it's a terrific show. However, HBO is not needed to watch the show as it is also available on NFL.com.

    Agreed that it is great. Probably the 3rd or 4th season of it, I think they've done the Ravens and it was the Bengals last year.

    And Jacksonville, Kansas City, and the Cowboys twice. The first year was 2001 after the Ravens won the Super Bowl. Although I think they skipped a couple years and it wasn't on HBO a time or two (ESPN?).
