The seventh season of HBO's Hard Knocks premiered last night after an offseason of searching by producers for a team willing to be featured on the Emmy award-winning program. With the Miami Dolphins onboard—and newly un-renamed Chad Johnson signed to the team—the premiere was highly anticipated by pay TV-subscribing NFL fans.
Did the show live up to expectations? Not really. Quick reactions from viewers said it was "boring," and most of the program focused on Chad Johnson's antics (with plenty of pained reactions in response by Dolphins head coach Joe Philbin). Here's your highlights, and we all hope episode two brings a few more spectacular moments. (Or they could just run an hour of Chad Johnson playing FIFA with Reggie Bush. That would be enjoyable, too.) [HBO]
