Football Fans Want To See The Lions On Hard Knocks

Earlier this week the Tampa Bay Buccaneers turned down an offer to be the team featured on this year's HBO Hard Knocks. This means the show doesn't have a team lined up just yet, although without a CBA training camp isn't even lined up yet.

Regardless, the search is on for a team to be on the show if there is indeed training camp this year. There's no word on which team is the new favorite is to be on Hard Knocks, but based on an ESPN poll that has more than 16,000 votes, people want it to be the Detroit Lions.

While it would certainly be cool to get an inside look at the Lions, it's probably not going to happen. Jim Schwartz said last year when asked about the show that the Lions want some things to remain private and he doesn't want the distraction for the players. That's definitely understandable. Somebody like Rex Ryan embraced the cameras being around, but Schwartz (and Martin Mayhew for that matter) is much bigger on keeping things behind closed doors.
