HBO finally found a team not named the Jacksonville Jaguars that was willing to be the featured team on their award-winning Hard Knocks program. The Miami Dolphins announced today that they will participating in the program with new head coach saying, "We thought it was in the best interest of the organization to do it at this time."
During HBO's campaign to find a team to be featured on the program, several teams declined the opportunity while the Jaguars made it publicly known that they were a team that wanted to be on Hard Knocks.
Instead HBO unsurprisingly decided against the NFL's 32nd most popular team to go with another Florida team. The biggest difference between the two teams? The Dolphins have an interesting quarterback battle that will feature Matt Moore, David Garrard and Ryan Tannehill battling for the starting spot, while the Jaguars have made it very known that Blaine Gabbert is their starter.
