    I really was looking forward to him getting destroyed in coverage by AB in a very "welcome to the NFL" type moment but alas, I don't think we will ever see it due to frosthelmetbitegate 2k19

    There was nothing that caught my attention, even the fight between the rams and raiders was weak. I’m giving it one more week and if it doesn’t pick up I’m out.

    If you like Gruden cussing, Glennon/Peterman highlights, and AB’s nasty feet then yes

    idk what type of hard hitting storylines you guys remember from past seasons but from what I can tell this is the exact same show its always been. I mean does a guy who doesn't believe in dinosaurs really move the needle that much?

    Seeing John gruden back in the league..plus an NFL player with frostbite, helmet protest, and the emotional capacity of a toddler should be entertaining, no?

    I don't big stories but I need at least a few guys that have some personality and are maybe goof balls. Carr seems fake a fuck when it comes to interacting with his teammates, seems like one of those guys that try to imitate whoever he is talking to at that point of time, like a man of many faces but he is terrible at them all. Gruden seems like a decent guy but he's not out of the ordinary or eccentric. Everyone already knows AB's deal, big diva that is good. Like a poster above said, Crosby's girlfriend was about the only highlight that episode.

    Have they done the one where they try to make it look like the coaches have a normal family life yet?

    I loved when Hard Knocks did the bit with Bill O'Brien being a family man and then All or Nothing had Steve Keim's wife saying his kids don't see him very much and John Fassel sleeping on an air mattress in his office :laugh:

    between him and Gruden, that feels like the most Davis family move of all time

    and the only reason he won the SB is because he inherited a loaded roster from Tony Dungy

    so he is basically Barry Switzer

    I get that to a degree...recently watched the episode of A Football Life about the last year the Browns played in Cleveland w. Belichick, a good portion of that was about Belichick's staff and how a lot of recognizable/notable names on his coaching tree started out as entry level staffers who were essentially go-fers. That's how I interpreted the McVay story
