Falcons Agree To Be The Next Team Featured On HBO's "Hard Knocks"
The Falcons today announced that they will be the featured team for HBO's '14 iteration of "Hard Knocks." The new season of the training camp-centered reality series debuts Aug. 5. The Falcons "turned down an offer from HBO a few years ago." Falcons coach Mike Smith is "not a big fan of the show," and as a member of the Ravens he "went to great lengths to avoid the cameras." But "that will be nearly impossible as the head coach" (AJC.com, 6/12).
