Falcons to Take Flight Tonight on ‘Hard Knocks’


Falcons fans wealthy enough to afford HBO can get a sneak peak into the 2014 season starting tonight.

For a boring team like the Falcons, entertainment expectations must be low, considering that Roddy White provides the only occasional controversy via twitter. Or not.

But Hard Knocks has a way of bringing out the worst in a team. Just ask Antonio Cromartie. Maybe this year fans will be treated to Matt Ryan pissing in a hot tub, or Julio Jones being a complete asshole to teammates, or Mike Smith treating Flowery Branch like his own slave plantation . . .

Let’s be honest. Nothing cool will happen. Kroy Biermann and his wannabe reality star wife will get plenty of air time, but that’s about it.

Nevertheless, I’ll be providing a recap after each episode, and maybe my HBO Go user name and password to one lucky reader.
