Would you guys want the Seahawks to be on Hard Knocks?

The Essential Online Seahawks Fan Forum Community. There simply is NO substitute. RATING: PG-13
  • Your team is an up and comer that the media loved to talk about. With the potential that your team has, and the characters that like to talk LOL, I think HBO will probably contact you guys first and try to secure the deal.

    Would you guys welcome the idea?
    DISCLAIMER:

    The trash talking that I do occasionally this week is strictly for gamesmanship between opposing fanbases as a result of our upcoming matchup this week on SNF. It by no means should be taken personally.

  • Yeah, as much fun as it would be for us fans to see it, the distraction wouldn't be worth it to the team. Doubt this would ever happen.

  • Sure, I would have loved to hear the coaches as they whittled down the choice to Wilson over Flynn this past off-season. Would have loved to know the deal with Winslow's release or T.O's reaction to getting the news he was cut.

    But to my surprise, Carroll turned it down and that makes me doubt him letting them in this upcoming season.

    I enjoy those behind scenes looks and season following a team type books. Maybe the Jaguars will do it? Would like to see young Bradley pulling his team together. Or maybe even Reid as he tries to get the KC Chiefs back on-track.

    How about the Superbowl winning 9ers? (I know that gives wood to a couple of our folks ... just playing).

  • I would love it. It would be very entertaining and allow us a look into the Seahawks that few get to see.

    I'm betting that Carroll would actually like to do it, but being associated with Hard Knocks now has a stigma attached to it. We know how much Pete loves attention.

  • The only teams they should cover are the drama queens of the NFL... Dallas, Chicago, the Jets, the Giants and the Patriots (maybe).

    HBO should leave the rest of the league alone.

With that said, last year would have been the offseason I'd wanted to watch. RW vs Flynn. Watching our D grade draft picks take starting jobs. And then have the year we had. Perfect.

    That sounds stupendous!
    But ultra unreasonable. If you worked in a camera store you would still be distracted by a freakin camera crew. Can't eeven scratch your nuts or sneeze without a boom mic up your ass.

    Nah, no thanks. Team is too young. As a fan of course we would love it but I want a Lombardi. Period. They could dead The Real Rob's forever for my money if it meant SB trophies.

  • No on 'hard knocks' it turns the whole scene around the team into a media circus and problems between players get magnified.

    Real Rob is enough and always light spirited instead of investigative journalism styled.

    I totally loved the: "Is RW a really a robot?" bit and thought it was genuinely funny. John Moffitt is a funny guy and Mike Rob teases guys in a team like way.
    Until we develop a pass rush that will cause opposing teams to be forced to scheme to defend it we will never be able to completely take the final step. That was done and the final step was taken.

    Super Bowl XLVIII Champions at last after 38 seasons.

    What a special magical year!

  • Can you imagine how crazy it would have been had Hard Knocks covered training camp last year, what with the three-man QB competition and Seattle signing Terrell Owens? There is no way that would have done anything but hurt this team.

    No to Hard Knocks. Have them go to New York again so we can witness the epic collapse of the Jets firsthand.

    We've got the Real Rob Report. Outside film crews would distract the team from focusing on football and interrupt practices.

    Thanks, but no thanks... Maybe Buffalo, Jacksonville or Cincinnati - poor performing small market teams that need to gain more exposure and energize a fanbase.

    Thank you! I can't believe fans would actually like a side-show drame like that happening with our team. TC should be ultra focused. To top it, off there are fans in this thread who bashed Holmgren for much less, but would give Pete a pass for allowing such a goat rope.

  • I would bet anything that if the Hawks were on Hard Knocks, RW3 would have won RoY, Carroll would have won Coach of the Year and Schneider Exec of the Year.

    I don't think the team would have let it be a distraction though I am afraid of letting other teams pick up things like our snap count (http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/nfl-shutd ... --nfl.html).

    I would have paid anything to see the training camp battles, RW3 win over his team in the huddles, the coaching decisions and RW3 break down plays in the film room. Real Rob is great, but Hard Knocks/NFL films make excellent productions that always seem epic and there would have been no better start to our epic season.

    As much as I think it'd be awesome entertainment for us to see the Hawks on Hard Knocks, I don't think it'll ever happen........at least not during the Carroll/Schneider regime. Seems like those guys are very protective of the players.

  • I understand the no on Hard Knocks but to say that Real Rob Report is anything more than half the players begging off being on camera seems to miss what I find of interest to me regarding coverage of the team.

    Sure Hard Knocks is a nuisance and Pete has said he doesn't want the intrusion but can we be fair about what it is the RRR provides? There is a different look that you wouldn't get with Hard Knocks. But there are angles that Hard Knocks provides that RRR can never provide. They are separate animals and each have their own place.

  • Everyone here seems convinced that it would be a detrimental distraction.

    Would it?

    What are the chances that this young, energetic team embraces it and actually turns it into an advantage?

    I realize we're all expecting huge things for this team and we don't want any wild cards thrown into the mix to change the course of how things are going.

    I'm not saying I would welcome it, just throwing that out there for the sake of argument. We have about the most even-keel QB you could ask for on a team that embraces energy. I go to training camp practices routinely and I'm not sure having cameras there would really disrupt much of anything. Last year with the dolphins the only story was Chad Johnson, no surprise. Other than that it didn't seem to be very disruptive.

    Our young guys might get a huge boost being the feature of the show.

    I'd love to think the best of this team's ability to drown out the noise, but then I think about that game in St. Louis following the MNF debacle. That was arguably the worst they played all year. Not saying the guys weren't prepared, but placing myself in that situation, I think it would be pretty easy to get a little distracted if ESPN was talking about your last game 24/7 for an entire week.

    I don't think this is something worth rolling the dice on.

  • This team is young, brash and tough. I believe the idea that a team cannot have a great season after being on Hard Knocks is wrong--just takes the right team.

    With prior Seahawk teams I was reluctant, but no more. This team has already bludgeoned our "soft" label to death. There isn't anything this team cannot handle with confidence IMO. Bring it on!

    I would love the Hawks to get on Hard Knocks it would be amazing!

    They would be fine. No way it would have any effect on this team. Its debateable whether it has ever had an effect on a team at all (see the Jets, they suck either way.)

  • I've been reading that Hard Knocks is having a tough time finding teams that are willing to let cameras have an all-access pass to their training camp. They have a pretty large film crew for Hard Knocks, so it does get distracting when up to a dozen people with cameras, mics and clipboards come barging into the locker room after every practice.

    With that in mind, I wouldn't be surprised to see HBO move on to NCAA Football training camps.
