    Eight teams can be forced to appear on Hard Knocks in 2017

    Fans of the Ravens, Browns, Titans, Colts, Eagles, Bears, Buccaneers or Saints may get an up-close view of their training camp this summer.

    Those are the eight NFL teams that can be forced to appear on Hard Knocks this year if no other team volunteers.

    A team can be forced to appear on Hard Knocks if it meets the following three conditions:

    1. It hasnít appeared on Hard Knocks in the last 10 years.

    2. It hasnít made the playoffs in the last two years.

    3. It doesnít have a new head coach.

    If a team volunteers to appear on Hard Knocks, that team would appear on the show because the league prefers not to have to force a team to do it. But in many years, no team volunteers because coaches typically donít enjoy the intrusion into their training camps. So it will probably be one of those eight teams appearing on HBO this summer.

    Though I would kind of like for this to happen just so it gives me incentive to watch the show, it really illustrates how far we've fallen in a short period of time.

    Of course, all we have to do to avoid being on the show is fire Pagano. Which should happen regardless of Jim's feelings on being on Hard Knocks.

    At this point I'd prefer to be on Hard Knocks. I hope we get some kind of understanding as to why Irsay trusts these guys with another year so much despite all the evidence stating he shouldn't.

    I think they are definitely at the top of the list because of Irsay in general is going to say or do something stupid.

    The Eagles might be a team that they want as well.
