    In my household Bellichik is the undisputed champion of boredom. If I want my baby to sleep in a hurry I'll put on a Bellichik interviews.

    Didn't really think it was that boring, but Hard Knocks can make any football team look interesting.

    But yeah, they won't ever top covering the Rex Ryan led Jets.

    I didn't think it was boring at all. Sure Mike Smith isn't the most charismatic guy, but it's really about the interactions between the players that I like to see. And it was cool seeing Steven Jackson trying to be a leader (I don't know how genuine it was) and watching the rookies try to find their footing.

    A lot better than last year's, probably because the Falcons are less of a garbage fire than the 'Phins.

    Jerry's retirement and the Osi/Roddy White talk were both very powerful.

    Last year was the Bengals.

    The first episode of this season was good.

    I used to be against the Texans getting on the show, but I've really started to change my mind over the past few years. I'd love to get that kind of access to the team

    I just realized Harry Douglas and Toney Douglas were brothers...

    I kept thinking about how much they looked alike, so I googled it...

    What was funny is watching Mike Smith try and hold back his cursing. He does it, but it seems like it is slipping out instead of flying out because he knows they are filming....

    I've watched both episodes and have found both to be very boring. I think it's because, overall, I find the Falcons to be a very boring football team. And there's something about that head coach that's very Kubiak-ish. He talks about how everyone thinks they're soft and that they have to prove they're not soft, but doesn't realize that sports teams often are a reflection of the head coach...

    Gonna be interesting what the commentary by the Falcons will be after Clowney's hit on Smith...


    Bryan Cox should be good...

    I wonder if they'll talk about it at all. In fact, I'll be surprised if it's anything more than one of several highlights illustrating the Falcons' poor play.

    they look soft...and I'd say the fans up in Atlanta will not be happy this year. Their bookend tackles both looked awful and I think one of them blew out his knee Saturday. I don't think they will collapse, but their season is going to be full of fail methinks.
