Hard Knocks Atlanta Falcons
Hard Knocks Atlanta Falcons
Finally #RISEUP good people, it’s here and finally I got the chance to sit down and watch the first episode in full. The Atlanta Falcons ( My NFL Team ) and one of the best shows on television that brings you into training camp and overall closer to the game.
What have I learned from the first episode? Coach Smitty used to be a Tom Seleck fan, with a mustache that made him look real 70ties porn star, almost like he could play Ron Jeremy’s evil twin in a porn remake of a classic movie. Stephen Jackson is a uhhhh “sensitive soul” doing art and stuff, humble and eloquent in his speaking…..uhh yea kinda!! Kroy Biermann needs to leave his damn spotlight hogging ass wife Kim Zolciak at home, this is football, training camp, hard hits, rookie sink or swim time, veterans getting back in shape, fucking time for the Falcons to #RiseUP. Not I repeat not time for your woman to push her new reality series or musical career, not only did she hog the camera time with is house shots, she spoke over him the entire time, then she took his shine off at his practice. Ok I partially get it, show some b-roll back story with family life, kids etc, but HBO producers need to put a cap on that broad now.
Anyway moving on, what else.
Harry Douglas talked himself out of any kind of Degree Motion Sense, Dove, Right Guard, Old spice endorsement with his revelation he uses women’s Secret deodorant (I do myself dawg I get it, for some reason it works better in summer) .Also the homie seems to have a weird touch of OCD when it comes to packing. Flat out refusing to let his gorgeous wife help him pack, that looks kinda suspect dude, hopefully her girls don’t tell her that means you are hiding stuff and you eventually get TMZ’d.
Peria Jerry looks like he just said “fuck it, I’m out”. There has to be a back story here, I hope producers visit his home and get some type of explanations, I know after that injury he was never a full beast, but he did his job effectively, I just wonder if he looked at some of the rookies and figured it would be a hard training camp and he would not be able to keep up. Terrell Owens does not need to make anymore cameos in the HardKnocks series. I like the dude, I’m sure he can still play, but he got his line in, moving on. William Moore and Roddy White will definitely be the comedy relief, these two clowns are the right balance and what’s needed. Also funny as shit, the D-line coach Bryan Cox.
Number 11 Julio Jones seems to be ducking the spotlight, I like that, coming back off injury you just want to focus on football. I get the feeling that ninja will be a highlight reel this season. The rookie Devonta Freeman house/apartment shopping was funny. Hopefully he’s not cut, his first big hit in practice did welcome his ass to the NFL, a full speed hit might just make him hurl on the field stay tuned. Osi Umenyiora believes! If I wasn’t such a man, what he said to Roddy White on the sidelines would have brought a tear to my eye. That was a great moment in television, to see a player with two Superbowl rings, believes in his new teams and his team mates that was fucking beautiful. Anyway they had the rookie show, a high school scrimmage to get in gear, some players really did look like they need hardcore conditioning and cardio, but all in all I’m ready for more and can’t wait for episode two. I even wanted to go to this week’s preseason game against Miami at the dome, but since they damn near fucked up the parking with the new stadium construction. TV viewing is just fine for now.
I hope the rookies pay attention to Roddy White’s words;
Make those plays you eat steak, you don’t you stay eating fried chicken!!
