    OXNARD, Calif. -- NFL Films senior producer Rob Gehring has a valuable little black book he carries around training camp.

    In it are the blueprints for what he hopes will become cable television gold. Tonight at 9 p.m. HBO’s Hard Knocks: Training Camp with the Dallas Cowboys premieres in the first of a five-part series.

    This year’s show has potential to be the best of the four previous, which included the Cowboys in 2002. Excited about the series, HBO Sports President Ross Greenburg came to Oxnard on Monday and believes the star power content featuring Terrell Owens, Tony Romo and Pacman Jones will make it special.

    “There is a lot more on the line with this one,” Greenburg said. “This is the pre-eminent franchise that everyone has picked for a Super Bowl.”
    I caught like the last 20 minutes of this last night and was SHOCKED to see that HBO is focusing on the 80th man on the Cowboys roster, one of Acuphet's favorite ex-Vikings - TODD LOWBER.

    LOL!!!

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    Here's a blurb on Lowber:

    8. Will you get to know Todd Lowber?

    The history of Hard Knocks includes following a rookie and the roller coaster of trying to make the team. Lowber, a wide receiver, is the 80th player on the roster. The 26-year-old took Terry Glenn’s spot following his release and is from Ramapo College (N.J.). Lowber is highlighted on the photo board of all the Cowboys in the production trailer. Another angle could be Texas Tech-ex Danny Amendola and his rise as a hopeful on his home-state team.

    “Always pay attention to the never-ending story of the rookie and the veteran trying to make this football team,” Greenburg said. “At the core of 'Hard Knocks', that is a driving piece of drama that never ends.”
    LOL!
    You go, Todd!

    This show is very well done.

    It's to the point where watching it makes you want to be a fan of that team.

    Oh - it's a great show - love it.
    HBO and NFL Films do a fabulous job with it.
    I was just laughing to see Prophet's man-crush featured so prominently.
