Hard knocks

Hard Knocks to feature both Chargers and Rams

       For the first time in the program's history, two NFL teams will be featured on HBO's "Hard Knocks."

The documentary series will follow both the Los Angeles Rams and Los Angeles Chargers ahead of their first seasons in the new SoFi Stadium.

There will be added intrigue due to the restrictions put in place amid the COVID-19 pandemic. With all 32 club facilities closed, teams were forced to hold virtual offseason workouts.

Some facilities have begun reopening ahead of in-person training camps.

"(It'll) still be 'Hard Knocks,' but it will also be safe knocks," Ken Rogers of NFL Films told Andrew Siciliano of NFL Network.

The Rams were the subject of the series in 2016 during their first training camp after moving to L.A. from St. Louis where Jared Goff infamously didn't know which direction the sun rose in.

Meanwhile, the Chargers are making their first appearance despite a lack of interest from general manager Tom Telesco.

“I'm not going to lie. I wasn't begging for it," said Telesco.

Both L.A. teams are looking to rebound from relatively disappointing campaigns in 2019. The playoff-hopeful Chargers went 5-11 and moved on from Philip Rivers at the end of the season, while the Rams finished 9-7 and out of the postseason following their Super Bowl appearance the year prior.
