The LA Rams appear once more on HBO: Hard Knocks: LA on Tuesday, August 25. Here’s what to watch for, and how to catch the show
The LA Rams have been appearing in HBO Hard Knocks: LA. If you missed what’s been going on so far, here are four hot takeaways from last week’s show. If you’ve been following along, you know that the series so far has been blessed with little tidbits of vital information about the team that we would likely not be privy to this early in the football year. If you’re new to this, welcome aboard! The Hard Knocks crew has done a remarkable job portraying the Rams organization, coaches and players
This week’s episode will feature the LA Rams in pads, making contact possible and ramping up the intensity at training camp. So what? Well, now it’s real football. Coaches who have been aching to evaluate the talent and skills of players on the roster can finally do so. Meanwhile, viewers will be hitching a ride throughout that journey, thanks to the cameras and crew of Hard Knocks.
Pads, contact, and scrimmage
The LA Rams are in full swing, which means that the evaluation process is at its peak. What do we know and what don’t we know so far? Well, depending on where you focus, the Rams roster is starting to firm up, or starting to remain cloudy. Let’s start by focusing upon where the roster is starting to shape up.
Starting offense is set at the offensive line for starters, starting QB, two starting WRs, and two starting TEs. At defense, the team is set at defensive line starters, defensive backs starters, edge starters. Where the team is still sorting out starters are at running back and interior linebacker.
The Rams appear to have a frontrunner at the kicker and kick return position a clear punter and are working on special teams and rounding out the roster now.
Padding the workouts
Since the Rams and Chargers are in pads now, you will find the action more in line with football as you may know it. Be sure to watch for Aaron Donal on the defensive line – where he plays. Keep an eye out for the offensive line and how they seem to hold up. And keep an eye how often the Rams go with two tight ends, and how the defense lines up. So much to observe, so little time.
If you haven’t caught the series, you can still enjoy the series by diving right in right now. This year is a bit different format, in that the show features both the Rams and the LA Chargers. It’s available on HBO which is available from your cable provider, Direct TV, or DISH TV. If you don’t subscribe to television, you can view by online streaming as well. How to stream? Well, you can subscribe directly, or add it to another streaming service like Hulu or Amazon. Okay, so you’ve arranged to watch. So what is the streaming schedule?
