The future of Hard Knocks seemed to be in limbo recently. Speculations about the show ending abounded when the NFL announced they’ll be talking about where Hard Knocks will go this season. However, as it turns out, the show will only be taking a creative shift regarding what they’ll be doing. Instead of covering historical teams, Hard Knocks seems to be looking into doing in-season documentaries by covering the Colts in 2021, similar to Amazon’s “All or Nothing”.

Carson Wentz is looking like the quarterback they need to carry their offense, but the team on the whole has some significant issues they need to figure out.
