LOOK: 5 NFL teams eligible for 2019 HBO’s ‘Hard Knocks’ series

Well, the 2018 NFL regular season is officially in the books and for all but 12 teams, it’s time to start looking towards the 2019 season.

You know what that means…

It is time to begin the speculation as to which team will be chosen to be on HBO’s Hard Knocks series!

First of all, there are a few criteria which automatically eliminates a team from being eligible.

1) They have a first-year head coach in place
2) They have a playoff berth in the past two seasons
3) They have appeared on Hard Knocks in the past 10 years

Guess what? Based on that, there are only 5 teams in the NFL that are eligible and one of those teams is the Detroit Lions! Joining the Lions are the Raiders, 49ers, Giants, and Redskins.

Nation, would you like to see the Detroit Lions on HBO’s Hard Knocks?


If the Detroit Lions make this BOLD combo of moves, they will win the NFC North in 2019

The 2018 version of the Detroit Lions sucked horribly. The head coach sucked. The offense sucked. The defense sucked. Heck, even the special teams sucked at times.

So, with that established, what can be done during the offseason to turn things around on time for the kickoff of the 2019 season?

Though I have a few ideas up my sleeve that would help the team to improve greatly, the biggest idea is one that will likely blow your mind. Mostly because I am not sure if it has ever been done before.

In my opinion, there is one BOLD move the Lions can make this offseason that will, in turn, put the wheels in motion for a 2019 NFC North Title run.

Now, I get it. You are probably already shaking your head and calling me a moron for thinking the Lions have any chance in 2019.

But they do.

IF and ONLY IF they make this BOLD move. (Technically it is a trio of moves but stick with me)
