Falcons selected for HBO’s “Hard Knocks”

Get your popcorn ready!

The newest season of “Hard Knocks” will follow a club that got knocked around quite a bit a season ago.

The Atlanta Falcons will be profiled by HBO’s “Hard Knocks,” the annual summer documentary that follows one NFL team through training camp and the preseason, the club said Thursday.

The Falcons have never before been selected for “Hard Knocks,” which enters its ninth season. According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Media, the club “volunteered” to be on the show.

“We are excited about the opportunity to give our fans a behind the scenes look at what it takes to prepare an NFL team for the rigors of a 16-game regular season and beyond,” Falcons owner Arthur Blank said Thursday in a team-issued statement.

The Falcons are seeking to bounce back after a disastrous 4-12 campaign in 2013. The club had made the postseason the previous three seasons and went all the way to the NFL title game in 2012.

I saw a survey on another site that showed the falcons as 31st in the league in fan support. I'm sure they're trying to gain exposure.

That makes sense. I think the word falcon is synonymous with the term Hard Knocks anyway.

No head Coach likes a bunch of camera men following there every move, its all up to the owner. I'd be so pissed with that home game in London and have hard knocks at all your practices. Looks like another bad year for falcon fans

Hahaha! Our coaches and players will be watching with notebooks and pen ready to go. JJ Watt said he learned the Dolphins snap count from the show so pay attention fellas! It'll be fun watching them prepare so hard for a week 1 a$$-whooping.

It was inevitable. We've been asked for the past four years.

I think they went 11-5 and won two playoff games the year they were on Hard Knocks

Put it on Lifetime and call it "Murdered 4th and Inches" and I might watch it with the wife.
