UPDATE: After the first episode of the Browns‚Äô season, we‚Äôve updated our rankings with Jarvis Landry‚Äôs speech.
HBO‚Äôs iconic training camp docuseries¬†Hard Knocks is back for a 12th season on Tuesday night, with cameras following the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for a whole month.
Will we get an all-time memorable moment out of this season? And will it break through this list of clips we won‚Äôt ever forget and buzzed about the weeks they happened? Let‚Äôs look back at some of the craziest, weirdest and funniest¬†Hard Knocks¬†moments, ranked by how crazy, weird or funny they were.¬†(WARNING: Some of these have NSFW language).
The first of some of the front office machinations we‚Äôve gotten to watch up close over the years.
Dude is intense.
During his brief stint with the Cincinnati Bengals, the star linebacker made it his business to avoid cameras and told the media why he hated the presence of the show in training camp.
‚ÄúI don‚Äôt feel they deserve to be here,‚ÄĚ he said at the time. ‚ÄúThey did nothing to be here, other than want to be here. They didn‚Äôt put no blood, sweat and tears into none of this. All these men in here, they did that. They (the cameras) did nothing. No one deserves to see this, to come inside of this unless you‚Äôre a part of this. That‚Äôs why.‚ÄĚ
Some amazing stuff from the Houston Texans season.
The first Bengals season focused on the loud-mouthed wideout and his quirky sayings.
Another dramatic moment captured on film, and in the context of Mallett blaming is alarm clock for being late for a practice later in camp, it‚Äôs even better.
And we mean all of them (at the time).
The Miami Dolphins season in 2012 was mostly forgettable, but his arrest and subsequent release was captured and it was as dramatic ‚ÄĒ and tough to watch ‚ÄĒ as anything filmed on the series.
‚ÄúLet‚Äôs go eat a [bleeping] snack!‚ÄĚ is the icing on the cake of this, the greatest moment in¬†Hard Knocks history.
