Buccaneers: Five guys to watch when Hard Knocks begins
Here are five Buccaneers to watch on the Hard Knocks program.
The Buccaneers are going Hollywood! OK, maybe not that crazy, but they are going to television. For anyone who doesn’t know by now, the Bucs are being featured on this year’s version of the Hard Knocks show on HBO, and the premiere episode is tomorrow night! In conjunction with NFL Films, this is the league’s inside look at one team’s training camp as they prepare for the upcoming season.
The show is a unique opportunity to see what goes on behind the scenes. There is a lot of mystery with the NFL and its teams. The media isn’t admitted to all practices, and they are never let into the meetings. As fans, we never get the chance to see how the work really gets done. Hard Knocks lifts the veil of mystery and shows us what goes on with roster decisions. What is said in the meetings? How does this staff inspire its players? We get to learn all of that and more.

It is also a chance to see a team in the chemistry building phase. Even when a team’s primary players have been retained from the previous year, each year is a new one for chemistry. The group has to get together and get a feel for each other once again.
Some of it takes place on the field, some of it takes place off. The cameras will look at the guys in all phases, from pranks all the way down to being lined up beside one another, and see how they get it together.
Who should we be watching? Who will be the most interesting? To me, the entire program is interesting, but here are five guys that stand out. They may not all be players….sorry no spoilers.
