Hard Knocks picks the Oakland Raiders to follow and it should be awesome

NFL: Oakland Raiders-OTA Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

This could be the most entertaining season of Hard Knocks in history.

HBO announced on Tuesday that the Oakland Raiders will be the team followed this season and quite frankly, I cannot wait.

Silver and Black Pride spelled it out perfectly:

As the offseason has gone along, the Raiders have made moves that had many, including myself, saying they were a made-for-TV operation this season. Gruden was already in house and then he hired fellow veteran TV NFL analyst Mike Mayock as GM. Then they went about trading for Antonio Brown and signing the likes of Vontaze Burfict and Richie Incognito. Combine that with having four draft picks in the top 40 and it was a no-brainer.

Hard Knocks should be more entertaining than the final season of Game of Thrones.

Hard Knocks should be more dysfunctional than the Soviet government in Chernobyl.

Hard Knocks premieres August 6, 2019 at 10pm on HBO.
