Houston Texans tabbed for Hard Knocks

@McClain_on_NFL I think Bill O'Brien, Mike Vrabel, JJ Watt and Arian Foster will be Hard Knocks stars. I think C Ben Jones will emerge as unsung star.

I'm glad its not the Vikings... I watched the Falcons last year and they seemed very distracted by the crew and filming.

Their head coach and GM looked pretty goofy throughout...

Yea, the only team in recent memory that i recall excelling after doing hard knocks are the 2010 Jets.

The Texans don't need this right now...

They have some pieces and need to work on building their talent...

I don't ever want the Vikings to be on this show.

I would like to see the Bills on hard knocks. Rex Ryan in my opinion was entertaining that year he was on as the Jets coach. I agree with everyone please don’t have the Vikings on this show.

I am curious as to why people don't want Minnesota on Hard Knocks? The only reason I wouldn't want the team on the show is because I don't have access to HBO (but if they did make I would buy HBO for sure). :lol:

Distraction, presumably.

FWIW Zimmer said he wouldn't have minded it (he's done it previously with the Bengals).

This is a great idea. Worth reading all of them.

Regrettable lines from HBO's 'Hard Knocks'
7. "We have given ourselves, as a franchise, a heck of a chance to come out of this thing with a Pro Bowl quarterback, or maybe two," -- Cowboys owner Jerry Jones in 2002, speaking about Quincy Carter and Chad Hutchinson.
