Bears Chosen for HBO's 'Hard Knocks'

The Chicago Bears have officially been selected as the featured team on HBO's «Hard Knocks» this summer for the first time in franchise history.
The Bears were one of three teams eligible to be compelled into participating in the show, alongside the Denver Broncos and New Orleans Saints. It's easy to see why Chicago was chosen.
The franchise is entering an exciting new era with rookie quarterback Caleb Williams, a top receiver trio (DJ Moore, Keenan Allen, and rookie Rome Odunze), and a top-10 defense aiming to build on their strong finish from last season.
Before the Bears were selected for «Hard Knocks,» I asked Odunze about his thoughts on the cameras potentially rolling in Chicago this summer. He admitted that, if it were up to him, he'd prefer not to have it as a distraction during his rookie season.
«I think for me, I'd definitely be more comfortable not having the ‘Hard Knocks' in the building just because we're all learning the new offense as rookies,» Odunze told Bears Wire earlier this month. «Caleb has a lot on his plate already, so learning the offense and growing within the facility and setting a foundation for ourselves. So it would be something that, if it happened, we'd take it and we would go forward with it and do it the best that we could. But I think it might be a little bit of a distraction for what we're trying to accomplish.»
It's no surprise, considering most NFL players and teams would prefer to keep the cameras out of the facility as they prepare for the upcoming season. But as Odunze said, they'll deal with it and stay focused on their goals heading into the 2024 season.
