The hit TV reality show “Hard Knocks” highlighted each summer on HBO is a very popular show for fans of professional football. The footage is filmed on location of one NFL club while in their annual training camp.Teams such as the Dallas Cowboys https://www.brownsfanshop.com/Terrance-Mitchell-Jersey , Cincinnati Bengals, Kansas City Chiefs and Baltimore Ravens are just a few of the clubs featured on the reality sports documentary series since 2001.The allure is that fans are suddenly thrust right into the mix of training camp and get a good feel of what an NFL training camp actually is without being an actual roster member. Teams begin with 90 players in camp and often add and cut players as the need demands. In the spring of 2018 it was announced the Cleveland Browns would be featured in this year’s show; which was a bonus for HBO since the number one overall selection, QB Baker Mayfield, was drafted by the Browns. Add the fact that Cleveland had so many new players on their roster simply added to the allure of using the Browns this past summer. In addition, Cleveland had traded for QB Tyrod Taylor from the Buffalo Bills which added to the drama of whether he would become the starting signal caller instead of the top pick Mayfield or perhaps the job would go to veteran Drew Stanton. The wide receiver position provided HBO with numerous sub-plots the entire training camp. The main attraction was the return of talented yet troubled Josh Gordon who had not played since 2014 because of reoccurring substance abuse issues. The club had also added former first-rounder Jarvis Landry into the mix via a trade and drafted Florida’s Antonio Callaway, who had several sexual assault charges brought against plus a team suspension. These accusations, which he was later cleared of, pushed his first-round draft grade way down until the Browns took him in round four. And of course, the role of head coach Hue Jackson who had a collective 1-63 record over two seasons, including the previous 0-16-0 campaign. This was the first season for the “earn your stripes” crusade. During the show, Stanton brought up the tradition that the top rookie on the club, which happened to be Mayfield, had to rent RVs for the QB crew to adjourn to during training camp in order to unwind, cool down and relax. Mayfield rented three RVs (at his expense) for the private use of himself, Stanton, Taylor and Eastern Michigan undrafted rookie Brogan Roback. Now it has been reported by TMZ that the nicest of the three RVs is for sale. It is a luxury version graded Class A manufactured by Forest River. The model is the Georgetown 377XL which sleeps six with an 80 gallon gas tank and can hold an additional 65 gallons of fresh water plus 24 gallons of sewage water. Home theatre, granite countertops, queen bed, Furion fireplace and onboard washer/dryer come standard. 377XL rented by Mayfield now for saleA used 2018 Class A Forest River Georgetown 377XL with 1,100 miles is currently listed on rvtrader.com for $129,999. The exact 377XL that Mayfield rented is currently for sale for $195,000 by Neff Brothers of Lorain, Ohio. The 377XL includes the original renter’s contract signed by Mayfield plus his autograph on a stainless steel refrigerator. In episode three of “Hard Knocks”, singer Brad Paisley made a visit to the 377XL and was reported as the only non-QB able to enter the secret clubhouse on wheels. The New York Daily News has referred to “Hard Knocks” as “The gold standard of sports reality programming.”Nobody doubts what type of tailgating institution this one vehicle could ultimately become. Tonight, the Cleveland Browns are on the road to take on the Denver Broncos. To help preview a few topics from the Broncos’ perspective, we reached out to Casey Barrett from Mile High Report and exchanged five questions with him. Enjoy!Case Keenum has been very ‘meh’ for the Denver Broncos.Stan Szeto-USA TODAY SportsChris: “Case Keenum threw at least 1 interception in his first 8 games Jarvis Landry Jersey , but hasn’t thrown a single interception in his past 5 games. Has something improved for Keenum as of later, and how would you assess his overall play as a Bronco?”Casey: “Well, I don’t believe Broncos quarterback Case Keenum has been the hope that Broncos Country was expecting. In the most recent weeks, he certainly has been smarter with the ball, even when running for his life. He has been much, MUCH better at getting rid of the ball in potential sack situations. He’s also moved himself out of danger on more than one occasion. This is something we didn’t see much of in the first half of the season. For unexplained reasons, every Broncos quarterback since Peyton Manning has had this behavior that if there is a hand on them, they take the sack.It’s been infuriating. This was also something we saw from Keenum in the early stages of this year, but has shown large improvements recently. This has been a topic of conversation in multiple weeks; why does he look so much different this year than last year with Minnesota? Truth is, most of us don’t know. In training camp and in practice, he has a level of confidence and leadership that for me personally, I haven’t seen much of in game situations. There have been flashes, and they seem to be more apparent in the more recent games, but he still hasn’t reached that level that we saw last year with the Vikings. I’m not ready to give up on him yet, but he needs to find that comfortable, high confidence level of play.”The Broncos defense misses CB Chris Harris.Photo by Bart Young/Getty ImagesChris: “Denver’s defense seems to excel where it matters: sacks, interceptions, and points allowed per game. But it seems like they are a bit banged up in the secondary -- could you tell us what to expect from that unit this week, specifically at cornerback?”Casey: “Nope. I can’t tell you what to expect; I’m not sure any of us can know what to expect. It has been a very up and down season for the Broncos secondary. Losing Chris Harris Jr. was huge. Not just in coverage, but his mind and his leadership on the field is desperately missed. The amount of field that CHJ can cover is ridiculous, and it showed in a big way last week against the Chefs... cough... I mean the Chiefs (couldn’t help it). Bradley Roby is a question mark every game. There have been games where he has made some outstanding plays, and there have been games where he got burned... bad. Now with rookie Isaac Yiadom out as well, nine year vet Tramaine Brock, and second year player Brendan Langley will definitely have their work cut out for them.”The Broncos have had issues covering tight ends.Photo by Lachlan Cunningham/Getty ImagesChris: “How the heck did George Kittle have such a big first half last week? Was that an anomaly, or did it expose some issues that Denver has defensively?”Casey: “It is absolutely an issue defensively. For some lost-on-me reason, the Broncos cannot cover a TE. What we saw last week was the Kansas City Chiefs and their coaching staff following suit of most teams this season. They just happened to exploit that weakness to its full effect Genard Avery Color Rush Jersey , and found ways for not only for Kittle to get open, but to be able to maximize the yards after the catch. It has been frustrating watching TEs get that open. I’m hoping that Broncos Defensive Coordinator Joe Woods has a plan for slowing the bleeding when it comes to finding a way to cover them, but what will the Broncos defense have to sacrifice in order to make that happen? I guess we’ll find out this week when they have to cover David Njoku.”Bradley Chubb and Von Miller make for a dangerous pass-rushing duo.Photo by Dustin Bradford/Getty ImagesChris: “What is the strength and weakness of the Browns’ offensive line? [Editor’s note: I screwed up and put Browns in this question instead of Broncos]”Casey: “I’m not going to pretend to be an expert on what the Browns do week in and week out, but from a layman’s perspective, they seem to be finding ways to work as a unit more consistently. What they did against the Texans two weeks ago was impressive. Even though they lost and turned the ball over - a lot - they kept Mayfield from taking any serious shots. They are completely capable of maintaining that level of play. That’s from what I have seen. Now, that being said, the Browns are guilty of a lot of offensive holding calls. This could pose to be problematic going against Von Miller and rookie Bradley Chubb. They have combined for 25.5 sacks and their speed off the end is hard to counter. While there was plenty of coverage regarding Miller’s offsides penalties from last week, he has also had his fair share of getting guys to jump early, especially in the Broncos Stadium at Mile High noise. I for one, am very curious to know how the Browns plan to block both ends, and equally as curious to see if the Broncos make any adjustments if the Browns are successful in their blocking scheme.”Safety Justin Simmons has stepped up in the Broncos’ secondary.Photo by Bart Young/Getty ImagesChris: “Tell us about one player on the Broncos who has played a nice role this year, but who Browns fans may not have heard of.”Casey: “That’s a good question. The Broncos, like the Browns and a lot of teams this year, have had to deal with injuries in key positions and even their second string positions. With the Broncos, they have had consistent inconsistency. Rookie Josey Jewell has shown that he can be really good, but he has also shown that he is still a rookie and has things to learn. The same could be said for Su’a Cravens. He’s made some outstanding plays, showing his good athleticism, but again has shown that there are still things to learn. I’ll try to give you two players to watch though. Safety Justin Simmons has filled in the leadership role with Chris Harris Jr currently out. He has made a couple of mistakes, but his vision on the field has improved a ton over the course of his young three year career. I feel like he’s only going to get better, especially learning from CHJ. The other that has made great positive strides throughout the season is NT Shelby Harris. Every game he seems to be playing better. He is figuring out how to read offensive plays more quickly, with an INT two weeks ago, and had another in his hands last week, but it was dropped. Watching him and Domata Peko Sr. rotate at nose tackle has been fun.”Thanks again to Casey for taking the time to answer my questions.
